Gas also requires oxygen to burn, perhaps there is an issue in an air feeder or mixing valve some where in your piping or if there is an inlet for air ensure that it is not obstructed. Using any combustion device in a confined space can be problematic for health reasons and the combustion process due to a finite oxygen supply. I hope this helps your investigation.

Pilot light blew out by a fan..I turned the control off..How do I Ignite Please


First locate where to light pilot. You can do this by following thin aluminum colored tubing from control valve to inside heater.In general on top of your gas control valve is a knob. Turn indicator of this knob to pilot and depress knob. This will start gas flow to pilot at end of thin tube. Hold this knob in the depressed position and light pilot. DO NOT release knob for 30 -45 seconds. Then release knob and pilot will remain lit. Then turn knob to on position. If pilot will not stay lit you may need a new thermo coupler, which senses heat from flame to keep pilot gas flow open.
Good luck

Water heater flame problem


Check your exhaust, see if its clogged or blocked, clean the flame sensors, I that does not work, then your gas valve is starting to go bad, there is a cap on it if you take the cap off you can turn the gas flow down a little bit,

Totai heater wont stay on after lit


Without a pilot flame sensor signal the pilot light will not stay on and the heater won't work. Try Replacing the pilot flame sensor, the pilot flame burns on to it and it connects to the valve. It looks like a wire.

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

My pilot light wont light and my heater will not stay on.The ignitor is cliking as if it works but will not ignite and if I manually light it the lighter will not stay on.


Essentially all gas devices regardless of which gas used, are equipped with a thermocouple that monitors the pilot light's condition and if it fails, it will not permit the main flame to light or the pilot light to stay lit. In your case, it may be that the TC failure also prevents the lighting of the pilot light.

Rinnai gas log heater (royale) keeps cutting out. now it wont stay on at all. the ignition is fine, the gas flow seems fine and the fan works fine. we vacuum the dust out regularly


When you say "it won't stay on at all." Do you mean the burner and the pilot flame shut off together or does the pilot remain lit? Is the unit showing any Fault Codes on the LCD display?

Just installed a 425 hn, the igniter clicks and the pilotflame goes on and off at the same rate as the igniter clicking. The main burners will not kick on. Checked all the electrical connections, checked...


I am not aquainted with the Bosch..... But it is a heater. I am going from past experience with gas furnaces and how the process works..... You said that you can get the pilot to stay on if you unhook the Main Gas Valve wire. Do you have 24 Volt power on that wire to Common? Does this have a Flame Sensor? Maybe it got damaged. Does it have a good ground from the burner to the ignition control module? Does that wire to the electro valve go into a plug that plugs into the ignition control.... Maybe that pin is not making contact to the board. Hope this helps If no one else answer right away repost Or call and see if you can get Tech support from Bosch..... I know how frustrating it is you buy something brand new and it doesn't work

Kenmore gas dryer igniting problem


check the flame sensor. it could be the problem since it would ignite first then if the flame sensor is mal functioning, it would indicate a "no flame" signal that would cut off the fuel solenoid. then it would shut it off.
