Pilot light keeps going out I cleaned pilot loght has a good flame amd I replaced the thermocouple


Suspects include: bad gas control, air in gas line, water dripping down vent, poor air supply, dirty air intake, very hot attic, negative pressure caused by tight house and other venting appliances and vent fans that cause backdraft down vent. Or combination of these problems.

Rheem #22DV50-38,pilot light keeps going out.Thermal coupler has been changed.


Most gas water heater problems can be solved by cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, and bleeding air out of gas line, checking gas pressure, and making sure gas shut-off handle is turned-on and parallel with gas line:
Many things cause pilot light to go out including dirty parts, air in gas line, and hot-unventilated atmosphere.

Pilot light keeps going out during hot days


Solution is probably better ventilation to gas water heater.
On hot days, heat and lack of ventilation can cause pilot outage.
Hot air causes oxygen molecules to move farther apart, and combustion is no longer supported so pilot goes out.

Pilot light keeps going out


probably need to clean the pilot orfice out. You will have to pull the entire burner assembly to get it out. Pull the tube going to the pilot light out and the orfice will be in the end closest to the pilot light. Once you get it out there might be a white fuzzy substance on it, clean it off, the hole in the orfice is very small, DO NOT make it any bigger, find something to push thru it like a single strand off a wire brush. After cleaning re assemble and re light, this should cure your pilot problems.
