I can't speak to the specific model but with most pilot lights, there is a switch setting or button for lighting. If you release that switch or button too soon, the pilot will not remain light. Hold the switch or button ON while you light the pilot. Keep holding the switch or button for about a minute until the heat sensor is sufficiently warmed that the pilot light stays on. Good luck.

SOURCE: I need a new thermostat for a Montgomery Ward

If this is a gas wall heater, any millivolt thermostat will work. Thats millivolt as opposed to a 24 volt type. There should be only 2 wires and the thermostat is just a switch.

Where can we get a thermo coupler for a floor furnace Ward Model 570EDR.


Most floor furnaces use the millivolt gas valve and need a pilot generator to operate correctly. These generators are bit more than a standard thermocouple.

Ebay has one for less than $20

You need a very kong wire and a kitchen match. Turn the knob on top to pilot and push down have your flame already down thru the pilot hole at the bottom of the inside of furnace.

Furnace wont turn on pilot light is on thermostate works


How do you know the thermostat works? Can you turn the fan setting to on and the fan comes on?
Have you had the door off lately (to light the pilot)? If so then make sure the door is back on correctly as the unit may not run if door is not on right.
