Why won't control knob on water heater turn to off or pilot position so that I can relight


It usually needs to be pushed straight down, or into the valve body, if it is on the side.

How to relight pilot on boiler


Every boiler will have manufacturer lighting instructions on the unit, so be sure to read it thoroughly and turn off the gas for 5 min to make sure there is no gas build-up around the boiler. Some have electronic ignition and some require a manual lighting of the pilot. If the control knob has only ON-OFF, it has electronic ignition. Simply turn off the power (at the electric switch on the boiler or at the breaker box) and then turn it back on and it will relight itself when heat is needed) If it has ON-OFF-PILOT, you will have to light it manually. You will have to turn the gas valve knob so the arrow is pointing at the word "pilot" and depress the knob, while lighting the pilot with a lighter or match. Continue to hold the knob down after the pilot is lit for about 30-45 seconds to allow the thermocouple to heat up. If you release the pilot knob and the pilot stays lit, you can turn the knob to the "ON" position and the burner will light. Please be careful. if you are not sure what you are doing, call a professional.

I have a 650 delta thermostatic gas combination control on a Rheem hot water heater that won't turn to to the proper pilot or off position to relight it. We have looked everywhere for trouble shootin


Jennifer, the instructions posted by Rheems on the heater are wrong. You must first rotate the dial clockwise, use force (in our our case) to get the pilot to its position. The folks at Rheems are nuts not to check their instructions before printing them and plastering them on their hot water tanks. Disgraceful, period.

Pilot light keeps going out


pilot light keeps going out! more then likely its the thermal coupling doing this. if bad it shut all gas to heater for a safety measure. just shut power off, then turn gas off and replace it. then you should be ready to go. to relight heater hold down on gas vavle knob in the pilot position, hold down and light it at the coupling where gas comes out. when it is lit, continue to hold down for 60 seconds. release knob very slow. then if its lit, turn to the run position. if flme goes out, wait at least 5 minutes to expel the gas fumes and turn to pilot and try again. good-day !

NO GAS FLAME


First, is the PILOT burning? If so, is the heater Control Knob turned from PILOT to the ON position? If you have any other gas appliances in the home are they working? If they're not, your gas has been turned off. Contact your gas provider.

If the other gas appliances are working and you answered No to the first two questions, you will need to relight the pilot. After the pilot lights and holds for 1 minute, turn the Control Knob to the ON Position. Turn the thermostat up and the burner(s) should light.

Have a Model #21V40-7 Natural Gas Rheem water heater and the pilot has apparently gone out. Can you tell me how to restart the pilot and what position the controls should be in for this model and...


The main control knob will have a "Pilot" position. Set it there, then light the pilot. You may have to press and hold the control knob to do that. There may be a striker button that will relight the pilot while you're holding the control knob or you may need to use a match or a candle lighter.

Once the pilot is on for 30 seconds or so, it will remain lit when you release pressure on the control knob.

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

Where is the pilot light on the cozy w352e heater? the heater went off and does not go back on when i change the thermostat, and i can't see anything lit when i open it up, so i'm assuming i just need to...


Open the lower panel. You will see a valve with a knob marked On Pilot and Off. This is the gas valve. Turn the knob to Pilot. Push in on the knob and if you are in the correct setting, the knob will depress about 1/2" into the valve. Now look for a red button and snap it in much like a gas grill starter. Keep the knob depressed and look into the small viewing port to see if you started the pilot. Hold the knob for 30 seconds then let it out. You should see a blue flame. If you don't , try it again and hold the knob in longer this time. Once you get the pilot to lite, rotate the knob to the On position. If for some reason you can't get the pilot to stay on, you may need to replace the thermocouple. If the pilot won't light at all, you may need to get into the pilot Assembly with a long match or grill lighter and light the pilot.
