you need to replace the thermocouple at the burner tip it will be a copper line with a bulb in the flame tip with a copper tube leading back to the gas valve and it senses the flame and keeps the gas valve open

If it effecting the pilot light only, yes. If it effecting the main burner, you will need a thermo-pile or pile-generator.

Yes this is probably the thermocouple connection.

Just remove the end of the thermocouple from where is goes into the gas valve and leave the end that goes into the flame in place.

Clean the end of the thermocouple connect by scraping off just a little metal from the end just about there the nut tightens the thermocouple into the gas valve. After you have exposed some new metal do the same inside the valve where the thermocouple seats into the gas valve.
Use a small pic or similar item to scrape inside the gas valve to expose some new metal there also.

Now reassemble the thermocouple into the gas valve and see if the heater works.

Here is a link with some more instructions.

The fuel button allows the heater to burn long enough to warm up the thermocouple. If the thermocouple doesn't sense a flame it shuts the gas valve to keep gas from building up to potentially explosive levels it the heater should go out for some reason. Do yourself a favor and replace your faulty thermocouple. It's cheaper than a new house or building.

Pilot lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

How to I start my heater


If it is this heater, then you must:

1- turn the toggle switch to the ON position.
2- Turn the gas valve dial to the PILOT position.
3- Depress the pilot button while pressing the ignitor until you see a flame. Continue to depress the pilot dial for about 30-60 seconds.
4- let go of the button, and the pilot flame should stay lit. If it does , then turn the gas valve dial to the ON position.
5- Set the temperature and your done.

I light the piuolot button and when i let go of the pilot button the pilot goes out does not light burner wont stay lit


When you light the pilot lite you have to hold the button down until it gets the element hot enough to stay lit. If you hold down the button and lite the pilot and let it go right away it will go out. What to do is hold down the button and lite the pilot and continue to hold the buttn down for about 45 seconds to a minute then let it up very slowly and you will see if it is going to go out by the flame getting smaller as you let up on the button. If it does start to get smaller conitnue to hold it again for a few seconds and repeat the process of letting it up slowly. when the control element gets to the right temperature it will stay lit then turn your valve to "ON" and the fire will start up and continue to heat the water.

Heater won't stay lit after button release . Burner lites and heat builds but as soon as the valve button is realesed burner goes out. Even holding the button in for three minutes it still will go out.


Hey, make sure the flame is shooting past the thermocouple, this is what tells the gasvalve to say Ok , now you have a pilot lite, you can now send 24-volts to the main gas valve to open! If not , then you need to blow out the oxygen sensor and clean the pilot tube orrifice, that should do the trick...

Pilot lites; but, as soon as I turn on gas flame


sounds like your thermacouplar is going out and needs replaced. Sometimes these will act like they are working fine , but when the pilot stays on for awhile and later goes out it is a sure sign that it is bad

The pilot won't stay lit!! Before when this happened, we turned the gas down. It seemed it would blow itself out. Tonight...it doesn't want to light at all.




i should have seen that, sorry.
TDoes it go out when you turn the main control to on? If so, The thermo coupler appears to be not working. The thermo coupler is that bulb that is at the tip of the pilot flame. and has a small tube going to the main valve. It controls all the gas and shuts everything off if the pilot flame goes out, including the gas to the pilo. That is why you have to push the button to light the pilot. Ot bypasses giving the pilot some fuel. to lite. As mebtioned, if the thermocoupler goes bad nothing will work so I think changing it will solve your problem. If the coupler is not in the flame, try adjusting so it is and see if that helps Good Luck -Ned-

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Pilot lite will not stay lite


You need to change the thermocouple on the unit.

9a50546.jpg

First check to see if the flame is hitting the thermocouple when the flame is on when you hold down the button. If it is then remove the the thermocouple and replace with the same size. You should be able to pick one up at your local hardware store.

If when you replace the thermocouple the flame does not stay lit still you may have a bad gas valve.
Hope this helps and please rate this!
