You must first check to see if your pilot flame is good. If it is too weak, or not impinging properly on the thermopile, it will not stay lit. If the pilot flame is ok, the problem could be that the thermopile is weak. using a millivolt meter, test the voltage across the thermopile while the pilot is lit (you may need someone to hold the button down while you do this). You will also need to disconnect the thermopile's leads from the control while you do this. You should get about 750 millivolts across the thermopile while the flame is on it (let it heat for a while to stabilize). If your reading is too low, your thermopile may be shot and needs to be replaced. That is of course only if your flame is proper. That voltage is needed (or close) to keep the magnet open so it will stay lit when you let the button go.

How do I fix the pilot on a CFM Insta-Flame DV34 RN?


Typically, the thermo-couple reaches a certain temperature which sends a signal to the valve body telling it to allow the pilot to stay lit. The easy answer is to replace the thermo-couple. Or, you could just replace the entire pilot assembly to ensure all the parts are new.

Gas Hot Water Tank Not Producing Hot Water

Pilot will not stay lit



Trying to light your pilot light and it keeps going out when you turn on you gas valve. This is a common problem when your thermo-couple goes out. The thermo-couple sends a small electrical charge to the gas valve to keep its self lit. When the unit calls for heat the pilot flame gets bigger producing more electric and tells the gas valve to open the main gas valve to the burner tubes. The thermo-couple is an easy item to change most of the time. You will need to follow these steps to change out your thermo-couple:

1. Turn off the gas (there is an inline shut off on the supply line before it reaches the gas valve, you need to turn this crossways to the pipe)

2. Locate the thermo-couple it will look like this and be attached to the gas valve

3. Unscrew the thermo-couple from the gas valve

4. Remove the other end of the thermo-couple from the pilot holder

5. Measure or take the old thermo-couple to the hardware or appliance store with you to get the proper length (there are many different lengths of thermo-couples)

6. Reinstall the bulb end at the pilot

7. Reinstall the threaded end on the Gas Valve (make sure not to cross thread the thermo-couple it should start by hand)

8. Turn the gas valve to the pilot position and hold down the red button wait a few seconds then turn off and do again (you will need to do this around 5 times in order to get the gas back up to the pilot light then try and light the pilot)

9. Try to ignite the pilot light.

10. Once you get the pilot light lit you will want to hold down the button for 60 seconds then turn the gas valve to the on position.

Here is an image of a thermo-couple (they will all look similar to this):

Pilot light ok when release finger pilot goes out


Your thermo couple is bad. Thats the copper tube that goes from the gas valve to the pilot. It senses thats the pilot is lit. Thats not working thats why it goes out. You can get a new one at lowes or home depot for about ten bucks its pretty easy to change just dont kink it when you put it in. It will just plug in at the pilot and screw in at at gas valve.

Rheem 22V50F1 pilot won't stay lit. Changed thermo couple & it lit, ran then went out. Let it sit overnight & it lit, ran then went out. What next? p.s. The unit is 5 years old. Thanks


If pilot lights and flame is robust and clear blue, and pilot goes out later, then some suspects can be excluded: air in gas line, low gas pressure, thermocouple is overtightened (finger-tight + 1/4 turn), thermocouple not positioned correctly in the flame, dirty pilot tube.
If flame is yellowish and small: then clean pilot tube and combustion parts.

Remaining suspects can include: air in gas line, low gas pressure, bad gas control valve, tight house so household vent fans pull air down water heater vent that blows out pilot, hot attic with inadequate ventilation, water dripping down vent.

Williams debonair wall heater + pilot light problems


THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!
