There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

SOURCE: Pilot light lit but no heat

the pilot's millivolt generator may be at fault.  if you have a meter that is capable of measuring a very small DC voltage, connect it up to the very end of the thermocouple and the copper cappillary. the thermocouple has a welded bead at the very end inside that generates a small DC voltage. Same principle of a J-K thermocouple. Iron constintan  - two dissimiller metals where joined together produce a voltage when heated.  the thermocouple actuates a millivolt electromagnet inside the valve to keep the valve pellet open.  no voltage there it won't actuate the electromagnet.

SOURCE: The pilot light will not stay lit, I was told

Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

SOURCE: Williams 3003622 Wall Mounted 30,000 BTU The pilot

I'm having the same exact problem... At first we thought was the vent... but the way the flames goes out... it seems that there is "not enough oxygen" more than "blown out by the wind"... right after both main & pilot goes out, I can't even light any external flame inside the chamber... and it doesn't feel like the outside cold air coming in... it just feel like there is some sort of gas in the chamber that's so strong, it prevents flame... and the only thing I can think of is that it doesn't have enough oxygen, but too much natural gas, and flame can't sustain.

My heat won't come on.


Newer furnaces do not have a pilot light. If yours does, you will have to relight it. Find the gas valve inside the furnace and follow the lighting directions. Generally, you turn the valve to the pilot position, press a button and hold it while you light the pilot. Hold it for about a minute and then release. If the pilot stays lit, then you can go ahead and set the thermostat to call for heat. If it does not stay lit, or the furnace still will not light, I think you need to call a repairmen or someone with knowledge of how to troubleshoot the problem.

Pilot light wont stay lit on gas logs


If the pilot lite comes on, but will not stay on after it has had enough time to heat the thermocouple, you got a bad or the wrong thermocouple. It does take some time to heat that thermocouple.

Reliance 606 natural gas water heater - model #640YORT - water does not stay hot. pilot has to be clicked to heat and then u can use hot water til tank empty and it will not continue to heat water.


If I understand correctly, the pilot light is not staying lit.
You light the pilot and water in the tank reaches temperature.
Once hot water is gone, then pilot light has to be lit again.

Gas pressure is good, and gas is flowing.
Thermostat is working at high end because it cuts off heating.
Vent is working because tank heats up.
Air intake is working.

Gas control thermostat might not be reading low temperature. Replace gas control valve.
Pilot tube might be dirty. Clean burner parts and combustion chamber, and air intake, and vent.
Backdraft might be blowing out pilot. Check for constant updraft by running water heater 5 minutes, and then light match under vent hood and see if smoke goes up.
Very hot air can put out pilot, especially when water heater located in attic. Add ventilation.
Improper vent might have water dripping back down into combustion chamber and putting out pilot light and rusting out the parts. Inspect for rusted parts and water.

Our LP Buck Stove will suddenly not lite. The pilot is lit. To start the stove, we just push the ON button and the fire lights, it stopped lighting without warning yesterday. Any ideas what is wrong? I...


If I understand it correctly, the pilot light will light and burn, but when you turn the Control Knob to the ON position either the burner won't light? My question is, doe the pilot stay lit or does it go out, when you do this.Also, is this a Vented or Vent-free Gas log Stove?

If it's vent-free, the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the Pilot needs cleaning. As, it may be clogged with dust, lint & pet hair and it's sensing that there is not enough oxygen for safe combustion. The other issue tis relative to the pilot assembly, is whether this unit has a millivolt control valve and the Thermopile has failed. The Thermopile controls the opening and closing of the gas valve when you turn the Control Knob or ON/OFF switch to the ON position.

If it's a Vented unit, the same thing applies to the Thermopile.

It would also be wise to check the amount of gas you have in your tank. It may be to low to sustain combustion of the burner(s), but has just enough to keep the pilot burning.

Hope this helps you to Troubleshoot the problem. If it does please leave me a positive approval.
Thanks!

I can get the pilot light lit but will not stay on to light the burners


Try cleaning the thermocouple or replace it. The thermocouple senses heat from the pilot light and in turn brings up the gas to the main burners upon request from the thermostat.

Pilot light is staying lit but it seems that we lose temp and the unit is not calling for the burners to ignite.


Sounds like an intermittent thermostat problem. You must make sure the millivolts are high enough or the thermostat can call for heat but the gas valve won't open. You must have over 200 millivolts reading when the thermostat is calling for heat. If the millivolts are good....replace the thermostat.

My honeywell gas suspended garage heater will not come on when the t'stat calls for heat. It is a heat only unit and neither the fan nor the blower motor will come on. The Heater is getting power to it...


The pilot light has to be lit before gas valve will operate. That's a safety feature so the valve won't open and fill the garage with gas and possibly cause an explosion or fire. If you have a standing pilot and can't get pilot to stay lit, it's usually the thermocouple and it will need to be replaced. Once the pilot is lit, the gas valve comes on and heats the combustion chamber up to approx. 100° to 125° a thermostat controlled fan switch will close and bring the blower on.
