Pilot light seems to high

The pilot light on my Ml300EHBC seems to run to high. It flickers and and has a very distinct pressure sound to it.  FLickers mostly blue to a little orange and seems to be too large a flame.  Is there an adjustment for this?  ALso the fire seems to high in the heater at times.  All new tank, lines installed and tested by gas professional.

Re: Pilot light seems to high

There may be an adjustment screw for pilot height. you'll have to look at the valve. a pilot should have an inner cone of greenish blue color and the surrounding flame should be a deep blue no yellow or orange tips. the pilot burns pure fuel no air. the main valve does mix air with the gas in order to burn.

Pilot light pressure to high blowing itself out, any advice?

pilot should sound like a little jet and not have a lazy flame. My instincts tell me your pilot is fine but you have a faulty thermocouple or the pilot flame is not hitting it good.

For (fire) safety, there is usually a thermostat that will turn off the gas if pilot light goes out.

So when you try to light the pilot you will have keep press & hold the pilot gas supply for at least 10 sec until the thermostat is heated up. Then only when the pilot light stays on continually, can you turn on the burner.

Forget about changing to a High pressure regulator!

Flame flickers and jumps it will stay lit for a while then just puffs out

The pilot assembly probably has dust in it. With the unit off and cool, use a drinking straw and blow across the opening of where the pilot light flame lights. Do not blow directly into the pilot opening, as the dust will only become more lodged in the orfice. By blowing across the top of the opening, the moving air will 'vacuum' the dust up and out allowing a more staedy blue pilot light to engage the thermocouple. You may have to repeat this processa couple times depending on how much dust is in the opening. These OPD pilots are very sensitive.

Pool heater pilot lights, goes out when heat called for

No, that would just cause you to have huge flame. There is another high pressure switch located next to the flame sensor/ pilot genator that can cause this problem it is the size of a quarter and is screwed down with 2 phillip head screws

Remove the cobwebs and junk from the pilot. Position the thermocouple where the tip can hit the flame to get the most out of the thermocouple.more

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.
