    The pilotlight stays on. But there is a low flame from the burners. It acts like a gas pressure problem but the pressure is alright on other equipment. What's the problem? The unit is natural gas. The pilot lifht is strong.Could it be a bad connection with the thermopile?

Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot, which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250. Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Hi there,

Another factor might be that the regulator might be stuck. That is the assembly on the hose before it screws into the propane tank. This might need to be reset.

To reset the regulator, follow these steps (or check with your manufacturer)

    1. Turn off the gas at the propane tank
    2. Disconnect the hose from the propane tank
    3. Open the lid your unit
    4. Turn all the burner valves to high
    5. Wait for 2 minutes (just time enough for a soda)
    6. Turn off all the burner valves
    7. Connect the gas line back up to the propane tank
    8. Turn the gas on slowly on the propane tank
    9. Light the grill using your normal lighting procedures
    If the regulator was stuck, it should have been reset using these steps.
    If you always turn off your burner valves first before turning off the gas at the tank, you will keep the regulator from sticking again.
    If you still have low flame or yellow flame, give it a second try, although you might have a faulty regulator that is causing the low flame or yellow flame. That will need to be replaced if it is bad.

Does low water pressure influence water being heated? The flame does not ignite. Gas bottle(19 kg is more tan half full).


no--- as low pressure is what turns the gas on to heat up
high pressure turns the burner off
call a gas fitter to determine the real reason the flame is not igniting

I have pyromaster gas logs that has low gas flow


Sounds like a ventilation problem... they're not getting enough air. That's a real safety problem. Make sure they have enough fresh air, and that the room itself does also. This issue is a major safety problem, and if more ventilation does not fix the issue, stop using it! Gas burners are not supposed to stay on without a flame present!

Low burner flame


The low burner flame can be caused by several problems: Low gas pressure, dirty burners, clogged air intake valve on the burner(s), Gas Line Shut Off Valve not all the way open.

Without knowing who the manufacture and model number of your heater is, it's difficult to tell you how to resolve the problem. If you can furnish that information, I may be able to help you resolve the problem(s).

Pilot burnes yellow and stays lighted when I turn the may burner on its on for about 30 sec. then goes out pilot and burner


You may be low on gas in the tank and there's not enough pressure and/or volume of gas to sustain it. Also, try carefully cleaning the burner elements.

I have a SG14T-JS that has six burners. They all light and stay on for about 10 seconds and then they go out. I cleaned the spark ignitor and cleaned the gas valve connection. Do you have any ideas? ...


Hi there.
Make sure that the gas supply has the same rating and type as written on the nameplate.
Check also the gap of the spark ignitor to the pilot. Spark ignitor also acts as flame sensor for pilot flame proving, it if could not properly sense/ detect pilot flame (in case pilot flame weakens during operation due to low gas supply), it will shut the burners.
Regards.

Cannot adjust flame on gas burner


Is this lp or natural gas? The screw you turned adjusts the low flame only. Did this just start, or has it always done this? Let me know.
