You will not be able to blow through a gas valve when it's disconnected. You may have air in the lines which would cause the pilot to go off when knob is released if not held in long enough. Try lighting again. Once the pilot lights - hold knob in for 5 minutes then release. Try twice, if pilot will not stay lit it's probably the thermal coupler. (metal prong right next to flame of pilot burner.)

My heil furnance comes on but no hot air or air at all


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
o light the pilot on a standing-pilot (always on) ignition system, follow the lighting instructions located near the control. Otherwise, try these steps: Light the pilot:
  1. gasfurnace1.jpg Press and hold the pilot control knob to start the pilot. Set the control knob to the pilot position. Hold a long match under the pilot gas port.
  2. Press the control knob; the pilot should light. Hold the control knob down until the flame is burning brightly (about 30 seconds). Release pressure on the knob, and turn it to the on position.
  3. If the pilot goes out when you release the control knob, try relighting, holding the control knob down longer. If the pilot again goes out, check the thermocouple (below).
Adjust the pilot:
  1. Remove any cap covering the pilot adjusting screw on a combination control.
  2. Turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise to increase the flame or clockwise to decrease it. It is correctly adjusted when the flame envelops the thermocouple bulb by 1/2 inch and appears dark blue with a small yellow tip.
Test and replace a thermocouple:
  1. Hold the control knob to pilot and light the pilot as above.
  2. Unscrew the thermocouple fitting with an open-ended wrench.
  3. Set a multimeter to the DVC (lowest voltage) scale.
  4. Clip one multimeter lead to the end of the thermocouple tube nearest the pilot and the other lead to the fitting on the other end of the tube.
  5. If the multimeter shows a reading besides zero, the thermocouple is functioning. Replace the thermocouple tube.
  6. If there is no reading, you will need to clean or replace the thermocouple following steps 7 through 11.
  7. Release the control knob and shut off the main gas valve on the gas-supply pipe that leads into the burner. Shut off power to the burner at the electrical service panel .
  8. Remove the thermocouple from its mounting bracket.
  9. Wipe the combination control clean and install a new thermocouple, tightening it by hand, then give it a one-quarter turn with a wrench.
  10. Insert the thermocouple into the pilot bracket, being careful to not crimp the tubing.
  11. Turn on power to the furnace and relight the pilot (above).
Adjust an adjustable burner air shutter:
  1. Set the thermostat to its highest setting to keep the burner running. Once the furnace has heated up, remove the burner access panel and loosen the locking screw.
  2. Open the shutter by turning it to the right until the blue base of the flame appears to lift slightly from the burner port surface. Then close the shutter until the flame reseats itself on the surface.
Clean removable burner tubes and ports:
  1. Shut off gas and power to the furnace.
  2. Unscrew or loosen and remove the tubes from the supporting bracket.
  3. Carefully clean the tubes with a brush or vacuum, making sure not to damage the burner ports.
  4. Use a stiff wire to clear any debris from clogged ports.

Big buddy heater, push the control knob, click to light the pilot, hold for a minute or so, let off the knob, pilot goes out. Second heater did the same thing, using a 20 lb. tank with a inline filter


Inline filter? Did you mean inline regulator?

Sounds as if the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) may be clogged with dust and lint. You will need to open the heater to access the Pilot Assembly (the ODS is part of the Pilot).

Once you have done this, use canned compressed air with a straw nozzle attached (like you clean your computer with) to blow out the pilot tip (just a quick shot of air please. Then look down the pilot from the flame tip and you will se a small hole in the side of the pilot. That's the ODS sensor. Place the straw nozzle just barely into the hole and give it a quick shot of air. That will blow any debis out of the ODS sensor. Any other dust, lint and/or pet hair you see inside the heater should be cleaned out.

Once you have done this, if the heater will allow it, light the pilot as usual and see if it holds after releasing the control knob. If holds, great! If doesn't, relight and hold the control knob in and look at the pilot flame. Is it curling up and away from the Thermocouple? If so, try cleaning the pilot again. That should solve your problem.

If it still won't hold after it's lit, you will need to replace the Thermocouple.

Hope this helps to get the heater working again.

Pilot light goes out when gas turned on


I am assuming that you are saying that after you have pushed the pilot knob down and the pilot lites and stay lite and then you turn the knob to turn it to ON the pilot goes out...... Then the Gas Valve is bad and will have to be replaced....... Or if you are saying that the pilot goes out when the burners come on then you may need to replace the Thermocouple because the main burner flame is pulling the pilot flame off of the thermocouple and it is weak and will shut the gas off.... Or You could have a cracked heat exchanger that when the burners are on and then the blower comes ON and is blowing the flame around and blowing the pilot flame off of the thernocouple......which will shut the gas off....and then you will need a new furnace or New Heat Exchanger...... These are the most common problems Hope this helps.....

Have Cozy heater model# CDV251A .Have spark , gas/but it will not light?


Be sure the control knob is set directly on the Pilot position. When you depress the knob, if it doesn't go all the way in (Bottoms out), release the knob and turn it a hair one way or the other, until you reach the point that it will bottom out when you push it in. If that doesn't solve the problem remove the front cover to expose the pilot assembly and blow out the pilot with compressed canned air (like you clean a computer with) and blow out the pilot tip. Any other dust or lint you see, clean that out too. Reassemble the cover and try lighting the pilot again.

I have a Rheem gas furnace, model # RGAA-100C and need help lighting the pilot. The instructions on the metal plate tell me to set the valve to off, then to pilot, push the valve down until lit, and then...


Hi, follow what I say and it is very easy. The knob that says off, on, and pilot, is where you need to start. You don't want to turn it off now, as its been off for awhile now. Turn the knob slowly pushing down on it until you fill it go down. The knob will go down believe me. When this happens, keep holding it down as this is what starts the gas to the pilot which is back under the burner, under it. Just take a flash light and you can follow the aluminum tubing back and where it stops is where you light it with something long with a match in it or a small rolled up paper. Keep the knob down the whole time you are lighting it. When it lights, keep the knob pushed down for about another minute. Then slowly release the knob and the pilot should stay on. Once you have it on, turn the knob to on, not off. If you turn it the wrong way, it will go off and you will need to start over again. Once it stays on by itself, turn your thermostat up for heat and the burner will light and come on. Just remember that the pilot where you light it is where the tubing goes back under it, as the pilot gas goes through it. You will need a light. Look at the knob with a good light and it will tell you which way to turn it. In the pilot position, the knob will press down to let the pilot gas in, and you can reach back and light it. Then turn knob on. Pilot should stay light. Turn on thermostat and it will fire up. Let me know how it goes. You may have to try a couple of times.

My magic chef kitchen range oven won't turn on, no gas


Some of the models require you to push in the oven thermostat knob to set the pilot if it blows out. So try pushing in the knob and hold it while lighting the pilot. When the pilot lights continue to hold the knob in for about a minute. When you let go of the knob the pilot should stay lit. If it does not stay lit then try it one more time. If it continues to go out the thermocouple or aso might be bad and will need service.

Vulcan 300 Freeloader Gas Water Heater


I assume it has a pilot. Try blowing out the pilot area with compressed air or CO2. Then relight the pilot.

Dust can cover the pilot combustion air inlet and cause it to pull away from the safety generator or thermocouple. Its called an oxygen depletion arrangement on some space heaters. I assume your Domestic Water Heater has this setup as well. Even if not the thermocouple is not getting all then heat from the flame. If this doesn't work get back to me here. We'll try 1 more thing.

If this helps you please grade me accordingly. GOOD LUCK
