Kenmore Water heater, Model # 153.339462, Pilot lights, burner burns for approx. 10 - 15 minutes then both go out. after which it is more difficult to light the pilot. I need ideas please


Clean combustion parts, clean air intake, get more air to water heater and see if problem continues.
Look at color of burner flame and pilot flame: if flame has yellow-and-orange instead of clear blue flame, then combustion parts need cleaning.

Pilot and burner problems can be caused by bad thermocouple, thermocouple not sitting in flame, weak pilot flame due to dirty tube or low gas pressure, air in gas line, no draft up vent, backdraft coming down vent, dirty combustion parts, clogged air intake, insufficient air, insufficient air quality, hot attic, bad gas control valve, etc.

Open following link for pdf resources, and illustrations for cleaning combustion parts, and some service manuals:

Kenmore gas dryer #110.97282100 won't heat. what part do i need?


Your easiest (cheapest) starting point is with the thermistor (flame sensor).
You can easily check that it is in direct contact with the pilot... and at the same time - check the ignitor is sparking

1. Check for ignition - if not igniting - replace ignitor.
2. Check/clean Flame sensor - if pilot is lit - replace the sensor.
3. If voltage at the gas valve checks out (from flame sensor) - gas valve should be replaced.

I have a Kenmore range [gas]and the oven wont come on The pilot light is lit..since I cleaned it it has acted funny,comes on sometimes, makes me think it is clogged up what can I do to ck. this out


Take a Q-Tip and carefully clean around the orifice where the flame usually is. If the pilot is not successfully warming the thermo couple the safety will not allow the control to let gas by for ignition.

My Kenmore 60 series gas dryer will not heat up. I checked the lint trap and it is clean. How do I open the front panel to check the pilot light?


Some dryers have a small inspection hole covered by a small platic cap.
Remove cap and look inside unit for pilot. Newer dryers have an igniter that glows when the dryer is turned on. It ignites the gas then goes out.

Drum rotates but does not give off heat


If the pilot will not light then there is an obstruction between the gas line and the pilot. Most times there is a particle that sticks in the pilot. The pilot needs to be disassembled to clear the blockage.

Usually the the pilot is a simple construction and one of the parts has a tiny hole that easily gets clogged. Obviously this needs cleaned.

If the problem persists, the must be a problem further up. check any elements in between. You could try to blow air through the system with various parts disconnected to identify the obstruction.

I have a Kenmore Series 80 (Model # 66812694, Stock # 66812) that will not start. The light comes on, but no power when you push the start button. I have checked the fuse box and everything is fine. I've also tried unplugging for 10-15 minutes and replugging it in, but no success. Any suggestions?

Gas water heater kenmore model pilot will not stay lite


I have the same problem. Water heater operates on a very simple principle. of thermo-mechanical feed-back and response. In my case, I have a Kenmore Power Miser 6, NG heater with an electronic pilot ignition system. The heater is just over one year old and last month (conveniently just after the 12 month service warranty expired) the pilot light started extinguishing on a very regular basis. I find it interesting that the very problem I am experiencing, is happening to other Kenmore owners (victims). The solution can be found in replacing one of two possible components; the pilot assembly or the gas valve manifold. The price of DIY pilot assembly replacement is approx. $60 . The valve component is significantly higher. Water heaters are designed and built to provide years of trouble-free reliable service. This is the first Kenmore product I have owned. From a customer perspective, with regard to product performance, Sears/Kenmore needs to take a strong look at their supplier quality. Oh, by the way, contacting Sears for remedial relief only managed to frustrate and infuriate me. You see, I am in Quality for a world-class aircraft company. I understand what ethical steps are required to satisfy a valued customer. I plan on ripping out the defective unit this weekend and replacing it with a reliable Home depot special. At least with HD, if the heater fails to perform , I can return it. Hey Sears in Chicago, don't come crying to the consumer when you are looking for the trendy "bail out".
