Hello Btandpt
let me tell you that the possible reasons for the problem you are currently facing are..

  • If you can get in, clean out the jet with a pin. Likelihood is the flame is only a fraction of what it should be, and isn't keeping the little safety valve open. call service engineer.
  • dirty pilot symptom yellow flame (lower temperature soot on thermocouple)
  • worn thermocouple symptom blueflame will not hold
  • faulty gas valve symptom as above more expensive to fix
  • faulty case seal goes out on windy day
  • vitiation lack of air, sooting, (boiler needs servicing gas boilers shoudn't ever soot).
  • lose t\c connection on gas valve
  • some boilers have a over heat swich in the t\c cuircut it may have tripped. why? maybe the pump or the thermostat etc etc as you say that thermocouple is new it does not mean that a new one is always Ok.. please do check it again.

It is the piece with a silver cable coming out of it and that cable splits open into a red and white wire at the gas valve, That piece holds the valve open once it is hot enough and is likely not putting out enough voltage to do its job. Millivolt models have a thermocouple or pilot generator that may be faulty or weak. Loose or rusty connections of the thermocouple to the gas valve or loose coil connection, or short in these wires can shut off a pilot

Good luck;

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.

Why wont furnace light past the thermol coupler


There is really not enough information here to go on. If this furnace has a thermocoupling, the pilot will need to be lit manually. Follow the manufacturers lighting instructions carefully. If it still will not light you may have a dirty pilot assembly or a defective gas valve. Modern furnaces do not use a thermocoupling. There is no standing pilot light. Each time the furnace needs to be lit it will be done electronically. Many reasons why it wont light in this case. Safety control could be preventing it from lighting for safety reasons. A bad ignitor, ignition module, circuit board, gas valve, pressure switch, gas supply, induced draft motor, blocked or restricted flue pipe, cracked heat exchanger, dirty flame sensor, ect. ect. ect.

Light the pilot light on weil mclain gas boiler


Joanne If there is a standing pilot on the boiler. Put the gas valve to the pilot setting and push in on the valve while holding a long match or BBQ lighter @ the pilot assembly that is behind the small access port at the top of the gas train assembly. Dont hold the pilot knob doun without having a flane @ the gas outlet of the pilot assembly or gas will build up and could blow out of the port and hold the gas valve in for about a minute or two and let it go it should stay light when you let it go .If it does not sta lit and it IS a standing pilot there- is a thermo-coupling that may be bad If the pilot does not stay lit.
If there is an electronic ignition rather than a standing pilot then you do not need to light it will light itself if the electronic ignition is bad or if the flame sensor is dirty. If you remove the pilot assembly from the gas train and clean the flame sensor rod with a piece of .0000 steel wool it could help. If not you may want to call a licensed pipe-pitter ( OR plumber depending where you live and the local codes).
If you don't thing you could do it yourself then call a licensed pipi-fitter or plumber. (Gas only has to leak once for there to be a problem so please do call someone licensed if you don't think you could do it your self.), http://www.weil-mclain.com/en/weil-mclain/products-services/
Here is a link to the manufacturer you should be ale to fing your equipment and the install instructions, if you look around .You can download a PDF and print it
Good luck and stay warm

Turn the gas valve to pilot. Push knob down & hold. While holding, light pilot & keep knob held down for one minute. Let go of knob & see if pilot stays lit. then turn knob to on position. Boiler should then turn on.

I have an old ideal elan 2 boiler. The pilot light has gone out and wont re-ignite. I have pressed the ignition switch in but there is not even a spark. Does anybody know where the re-set button is on...


Hi, to light the pilot you must first ensure the gas valve button (Grey with 3 symbols on it) is placed in the ignition position, then, while holding the button in towards the gas valve depress the orange ignitor button several times, hold the gas valve button in for about 30 seconds once the pilot lights. If it fails to light and you cannot see a spark when you depress the ignition button the cable could be faulty, the ignitor corroded or damaged or the pilot could be blocked or the gas turned off. If it is an Elan 2 CF boiler there is no reset button.
