Usually the small opening on the burner that 'points' to the pilot light will get clogged with cleaning soap or spills. Look carefully (the burner may be very easy to remove for inspection. There should be a small hole on the side pointing toward the location of the pilot light. It will be lower down than the main burner openings. Clean it out with a wooden toothpick.

SOURCE: Nexgrill patio heater won't stay lit

I called Nexgrill technical support at 1-800-913-8999. They are sending me a new thermo couple to keep the valve open when ignited - so the patio heater will stay on. I needed to give them the serial number (inside the propane tank door) and fax them a copy of the receipt.

Hope this helps.

When I try to use my Thermolaire model SU402E, the pilot lights( and stays lit), but the main burner will NOT ignite.. any suggestions as to what could cause this if the pilot stays lit?


Bad igniter? When you 1st try it the gas valve will give enough gas that you would get the burner lit if the igniter was glowing red. If you're desperate you can light the igniter area w/ an aim n flame, but you definitely want to do that w/ caution and crank up your t-stat so the furnace stays on awhile Cuz you'll have to do it again for heat or buy an igniter($40 or so)

Laars pool heater's burner wont stay lit


Check the burner, the holes may be plugged, especially at the beginning of the season. Same happens to the pilot light tube. Spiders love to make nests inside those small holes clogging everything up.

Pilot light will not ignite water heater


the pilot light serves to purposes. it is the source of ignition for the main burner and is a safety device that detects wether there is a flame or not. if the pilot light stays on when you stop pressing the pilot light button then you need to turn the knob to the on position to light the main burner. the pilot light is not the on position. if the pilot light goes out when you stop pressing the pilot light button then the thermocouple or flame sensor needs replacing. good luck

Raypak 403A, burners will not stay lit for more than a few minutes.


i'm thinking after the main valve opens the pressure could be dropping in the pilot tube. this could be due to a dirty, plugged and sometimes spider web inside the pilot tube. rare but does happen, nice warm home for a spider. good luck. if not let me know. could also be weak pilot coil.

I would first check the gas pressure to your furnace. Then make sure that burners are clean and watch flames when burner first ignites. I have seen burners that were dirty cause delayed ignition that would create a suction when they came on and extingush pilot and burners.
The next thing I would do is change gas valve. Thank you

Can you spark it and does it light in the "off "position? Try it and see if when the pilot stays on, you turn it to pilot and the burner ignites.
