SOURCE: Pilot light keeps going out on furnace. Ruud gas furnace, (20+)

When a pilot lite habitually goes out the thermocople has failed. The are pretty cheap. If you remove yours and go to a local applicane parts center they can provide you with one the same lenght as your current one for a much cheaper price than a plumbing and heating source. In the process of changing the thermocouple when you disconnect it from the gas control valve take a Q-tip and clean the mating area as best you can. You can try cleaning that mating area before changing the thermocouple first. You might just get lucky and not have to buy a new one.
This is not a hard task. It is a bit tedious to get to the area near the flame head but I am pretty sure you can do this. Just make sure the new thermocople is positioned like the one you removed.

There is a very very remote possibility that the gas control itself is failing but I doubt it. You still would have to change the thermocouple first in order to troubleshoot.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to Light a Furnace Pilot Light Here, we'll explain the basic steps for re-lighting the pilot light of a gas furnace.

#1: Locate the Instructions Label on Your Furnace

Every furnace should have a label on it that tells you how to light a furnace. Sometimes, however, the printing may be small or the furnace area may be dark. In these cases, the label may be difficult to read. Keeping the following instructions near your furnace or in another safe spot where they can be located easily will make the task much easier.

#2: Find Pilot Light and Components

Near the bottom of your furnace is a switch that normally says "Pilot," "On" and "Off." Find this switch and turn it to the "Off" position. Wait at least five minutes. This is important because it gives the gas time to dissipate, which is necessary to avoid possibly starting a fire. While you are waiting, take note of the location of the reset button, which should be near the dial you just turned to "Off."

#3: Re-Light the Pilot Light

Once the gas has had time to dissipate, turn the knob to "Pilot." Then, hold down the "Reset" button and bring the flame of a long lighter close to the pilot light opening. This should light the furnace pilot light. Once you are sure the pilot light is on, release your pressure on the reset button.

Where is the furnace breaker


Is the pilot light lit? There should be a valve that turns the gas off at the furnace itself. This valve is for the pilot lite There is no breaker of sorts but rather a sparker that lights the furnace. If the furnace does not light there is a small 12 volt valve that shuts off the gas to the furnace but not to the pilot light. Also make sure your 12 volt system is connected and operating. It wont work without it as it operates off that system not 120V. The same goes for refrigerators, the will not function with the 12v system disconnected

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.
