The main question is if the pilot goes out after you turn on the timer or goes out by itself. If it goes out by itself (without turning on the timer) then you need to make sure your thermocoupler and overall pilot generator assembly is positioned directly near the burner. If your pilot goes out when you turn on the timer then your wiring is not correct. You can go directly to the manufacturer for support, they are very helpful. I dont know their number but you can find it on their website. Good Luck

Have a comfort glow heater blue flame after it is on for 30 sec or more the flame and ignition goes out i can restart it and it will stay lite another 30 sec or so what can i do


Easy remedy. You pilot safety is dusty. You need to flush it out or blow it out. I use rust buster. It has a long spout on it. I squirt a little bit into the pilot to flush out dust and cobwebs then I blow it out and allow the rust buster to dry. I then relight it.

You may be low on gas in the tank and there's not enough pressure and/or volume of gas to sustain it. Also, try carefully cleaning the burner elements.

Water heater pilot


This is more than likely the thermocoupler. The thermo Coupler is a solid cylinder shape with a point on one end and a thick aluminum wire on the other the tip is situated so that it is in the pilot flame. When it reaches a certain temperature from the pilot it sends a signal for the gas valve to stay open and keep the pilot light. If it does not send the signal the valve closes and shuts the gas off for safety. Solution first make sure you hold button long enough to heat Thermocoupler (about 30 sec) if pilot still goes out then replace Thermocoupler. Can purchase at most hardware stores and all plumbing shops.
