If it is a standing pilot, the knob that you had to depress to get pilot gas to flow has to be turned to the 'on' position from the 'pilot' position before main gas will flow.

If is a "spark to pilot" ignition the knob has no 'pilot' position on the main gas valve and the problem is elsewhere. There are many variations of ignition sequence and a little more input from what you have would be helpful.

I changed the thermo coupler and the pilot light does stay lit but the burners won't light


If you are referring to a gas fireplace:

  • Make sure the pilot knob is turned from "pilot" to "ON" or it will never run.
  • If the pilot knob is "ON", and the pilot is lit, but the burner won't light, it could be a bad Thermopile. The thermopile is the other safety mechanism in the pilot assembly that controls the burner.

I want to light the pilot but do not know how what is the red button for and do you turn on the gas to light pilot?


nope - don't turn on gas at the Range's front control panel to light the pilot lite.
but you do need to turn on the gas to the kitchen range at the plumbers black pipe valve to the Range.

To light the pilot light:
(1) depress the red button (that feeds the gas to the pilot light orifice)
(2) using lighter/match/lit rolled-up newspaper, etc, light the tiny amount of gas coming from orifice
(3) continue to hold dow red button for 1 or 1.5 minutes (this allows heat to bend the bi-metal contact)
(4) after 1-1.5 minutes with a lit pilot light, release the red button - the pilot should remain lit
(5) you're done lighting the pilot lite - turn on the oven (or broiler).

I have a readyheater model 65-85 the flame will not stay lit im thinking thermal couple is there a way to test this part? or could it be another problem?


If your pilot light will not stay lit when you release pilot light button then chances are that your thermocouple is bad. Make sure that the tip of thermocouple is directly in line with pilot light. Tip of thermocouple should be cherry red if it is properly placed. If pilot will not stay lit then replace it. If you aren't sure about placement of thermocouple you can heat thermocouple with a seperate heat source. If you do this and pilot light stays lit then reposition thermocouple in pilot flame. If it still won't keep pilot burning then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Im calling for heat from the thermastat and control panel, the boiler light and and the fan is running, but no matter how many times i keep re trying the pilot and burner will not commence, is there...


I would check to make sure control on gas valve is in on position and pilot is lit if you have a standing pilot. If you have a spark or hot surface ignitor make sure they are trying to lit pilot. If you have standing pilot model and pilot lit is not on. Turn control on gas valve to off,wait five mins. then turn to pilot. Depress botton and try to light pilot. If it lights hold down for a couple of mins. then release.. If pilot stays lit turn control to on. If thermostat is calling for heat this should bring main burner on. If pilot does not stay lit then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

WE can get the pilot light lit but it will not stay on


You will need to check the pressure regulator for the gas.
It sounds like the gas pressure is to low to keep the pilot lit.

Pilot will light but main burner will not light


if burner lights after jumping valve you have something wrong in thermostat loop. disconnect the 2 thermostat wires on gas valve and use multimeter on continuity setting. if all wires ,connectors and components are good,you will get a tone.since you have jumped out each component in thermostat loop with no success ,i would suspect a bad wire or oxidation on a terminal .

I don't know how to restart my old bosch water wizard 10p, pilot light has gone out.


get a long stick match, a flashlight remove lower inspection cover, find thermocouple and pilot light will be next to it,turn gas valve to pilot light and hold down,stick the match in by thermocouple till the pilot lights and hold valve down till pilot stays lit,this may take a minute or more,then release gas valve and see if pilot stays lit, if not retry,if it wont stay lit,the thermocouple is defective and needs replacement
