Propane appliances usually run on 10-11 inches of water column, this is about 1/2 pound of pressure. If the regulator you have is not rated for delivering gas at that rate, you will need to find one that does. If your regulator is rated for more than the 11 inches, most likely you could have damaged the appliance regulator that came with the heater. Check the propane pressure specified by the heater manufacture against the rated supply of your regulator and see if they match. Make sure the heater is rated for Propane and NOT Natural Gas. Check to see if the gas valve on the appliance is in the operate position and all valves are open. Bleed off the air in the gas line by holding down the pilot switch and keep attempting to light the pilot. It could take you a few minutes. If you hear and smell gas but the unit will still not light, don't chance at getting hurt, call a technician. Look to make sure there are no safety switch that may have triggered off not allowing the gas valve to operate. And make sure there is no obstruction in the heater?s gas valve blocking off the supply of gas. Always exercise caution when it comes to gas and if you are uncomfortable, call a qualified gas technician.

SOURCE: Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!

I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!

Village series QV32B pilot light won't stay lit


Classic symptom of a malfunctioning thermocouple. When you press the knob, you force the gas valve open so gas will flow. The function of the thermocouple is to confirm that the pilot is lit and allow gas to continue to flow when you release the valve. A new thermocouple is not that expensive. Good luck!

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.

Hotpoint gas stove. burners work, oven and broiler do not.


Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.

Hand-wheel above the lighting knob springs back when i move it! Have I to light it first to be able to regulate? Ulf Manual?


Move that knob to PILOT and mash it down, then keep a holdin it down till it stays down on it's own after you done lit it. The copper/nickel alloy inside the thermocouple tip must get hot enough to produce electrical current and keep that sprang loaded electromagnet safety feature open. The whole idea is IF the pilot goes out the magnet will release (when the thermocouple cools down) and close off the flow of raw gas. Clever ain't it? Once you get the pilot to stay lit by itself when you let off the knob, then advance the knob to the ON position. The heater should come on unless you have a separate temp knob. If that is the case depending on how cold it is you would turn that temp knob up a hair.

PILOT LIGHT KEEPS GOING OUT.


If the pilot flame is weak, when the main burner is ignited, there can be enough 'whoosh' of air and gas to blow out the pilot. There may be a little of grit in the pilot valve jet hole restricting the flow, hence the weak flame. Try using a piece of fine wire to clear the obstruction. If that does not help the pilot jet will have to be unscrewed and cleaned with compressed air. Ensure the gas is turned off before attempting any maintenance.

Hi i have cifs40 gas fryer ,i change the control thermostst,when turn on the pilot,after 10 second pilot stay on ,but when turn the gas valve knob on the on position and call for burner with control...


Sounds like the regulator is out of sync. You have to be sure the gas isn't flowing too quickly. There are two gas burner nozzles - one is for house natural gas the other for a propane set up. Be sure this is the correct one and the correct regulated pressure. affece7.jpg
If the pressure is TOO MUCH it will blow the flame out before it starts. Check the flame as you attempt to start it - does it blow out or does it just go out? moz-screenshot-2.png
In closing I think it is your regulator that needs attention.
Best of it

Pilot lights get almost no gas flow to the burner.


Probably a bad regulator or regulator needs adjusting. Call your natural gas company to do this.

I have a whirlpool gas range , it must be the cheapest one as it has no electrical connections,and I have no manual ,how do I light the pilot lite ????


There are actually two pilot lights to light, (maybe three) Under the top there would be the old style flash back tubes leading from two burners to a pilot. This small flame stays lit while the gas is on. When you turn a burner on some gas flows back through the tube and flashes or lilghts the burner.
When you turn the gas on there is always gas through the pilots, unless shut off with the little set screws if you follow the lines. From the factory these are on and open. Small set screws also adjust pilot flame size.
THe other pilot for the oven is down by the main burner. There is a small cap tube from the gas valve to a holder just under the burner. This is where it is lit..........
There is another line to the thermostat when you lturn it on that opens more gas to increase the pilot to a biggger flame to open the gas valve burner assembly.
.Also ranges usually come set for natural gas, and you have to do spud adjustments, regulator, air flow only if you want to change to lp......
Put a new flex line on, and be careful with gas...........

Pilot light will stay lit as long as i hold down the knob, but when knob released, light goes out....... i have a wall mount model# GWRN30t


Normally when you release the knob it work the same as a two way switch ,which mean gas will stop flowing through the small pilot channel and will flow to large channel where it will continue to burn.
In your case, you have to strip down the regulator switch and look where the gas passage is glogged.
