What is this? pilot light? gas heater?
What could be the problem is that there is a carbonate element that the electricity heats up and when the operating temp is reached then the gas valve is opened and the gas is ignited. Check the element and see if it's cracked, even a hair-line crack will stop the element from working.

Heater pilot light will not stay lit after knob is released


99% of the time it is just dirt and dust in the pilot light. NOT a bad thermocouple! These units generate their own power through the pilot light and it has to burn perfectly. Turn off gas supply, remove the cover and the pilot light assembly, including disconnecting the tiny gas line from the gas valve. Blow compressed air in, around and through it to get dust out. Replace everything, use soap bubbles at gas fittings to leak test and light the pilot. I bet it stays lit.

Rfn30ta gas heater dont stay lid


The most common problem with these types of heaters is dust build up in the pilot. If your pilot light is mostly a yellow flame you need to blow out the pilot of dust.

Turn off the unit. Remove the cover to expose the pilot. You should find two small holes about an inch or two below the tip of the pilot. Those holes are for mixing oxygen into the gas prior to it lighting. Blow those out with a can of compressed air and you may as well blow out the large burner also with the can of air. Wipe down everything with a damp cloth to remove additional dust.

Sometimes the pilot will light and stay lit, but when the burners turn on the flame moves slightly and pulls the flame away from the thermocouple. Either way this is a good idea to do every year or two on your heater.

I have a Rheem PG50T9A gas hot water heater. We had hot water this morning. When I came home the pilot light was out and won't stay lit. Any ideas?


Hopefully just the thermocouple. The thermocouple is the small rod right next to the pilot light. The flame on the pilot heats up the thermocouple and keeps the gas valve on. You can replace it yourself. The thermocouple will be connect by a small nut on the underneath side of the valve, and you will have to pull the thermocouple out of the pilot assembly. Not an expensive part, you can get it at any hardware store. Hope this helps you .

I have a Williams model # 2509612 wall heater. I replaced the thermocouple, cleaned the pilot light gas line, but the pilot light keeps going out after cycling. Any suggestions?


Remove your pilot assembly and remove the aluminum gas line going to it. Be careful when you take this off because there is an orifice inside of it that may or may not fall out. If it don`t fall out remove it. In the top of are a couple really small holes. Make sure they are clean. Also again clean the pilot hood of all debris. Reassemble everything and it should work fine. If not buy a replacement pilot assembly because I have had some that i couldn`t get clean enough not matter what I tried. Doesn`t happen often but does happen. New assembly always fixes it but a good cleaning usually does it.

I have a bakers pride pizza oven and the bottom oven Including the pilot light) continue to go out for no apperant reason. I have changed the thermocouple 3 times and the pilot light once. Sometimes it...


Several things to check. First be sure the pilot light flame is directly striking the thermocouple. It is a pencil sized rod that is next to the pilot light. Sometimes people reduce the size of the pilot flame to save gas. You may need to increase the pilot flame. Follow the small gas line from the pilot flame back to the gas valve. There is a screw where the small pilot gas line goes into the valve. Remove the screw and then deep in the hole is a tiny screw that can only be reached by a tiny flat blade screw driver. Turn the screw counter clockwise to increase the pilot flame. The thermocouple needs to be red hot to work properly. The second item to check is to see if there are any breezes that occasionally blow through the kitchen. Sometimes the hood fan will draw air under the ovens and actually blow the pilot flame out. Same fix, increase the flame. You may also experience low gas pressure to the appliance during heavy usage. You would need a manometer gauge to check for proper gas pressure. In short, if the oven goes out during your busiest time when everything gas powered is on, the oven may be starved for gas.

I HAVE A VERMONT CASTINGS RADIANCE HEATER MY PILOT LIGHT WONT STAY LIT I HEAR THE THERMOCOUPLER TRIP THE VALVE BUT THE FLAME WILL GO OUT


We had this problem and struggled with it for over a year. We finally hired someone to come in and service the stove he cleaned everything and blew a piece of crud from the pilot line. NO Problem for 2 years since.
He told me the pilot light should look strong pointed like a pencil not curved up like a candle. He removed the pilot and disassembleed the line and used compressed air.

Pilot light not working in gas heater


That probe that sits in the pilot flame is at fault. Remove and replace. Inexpensive fix. Make sure probe is in the tip of the pilot flame. If it does not stay hot enough, it will shut off the gas.

Kozy world propane wall heater. The pilot light will work


Sounds like you have a common problem with infrared heaters. They are very dust sensitive and they will light and then go out when they are dusty. If you have already tried to blow it out at home you need to take the heater to your propane dealer who will take the heater apart and blow it out correctly. They will then hook it up to their gas line and make sure that the problem is fixed. I hope that you haven't blown up into the bottom of the heater where the gas line is connected. There is a diaphragm up in there and if you blow into it you risk messing it up to where it won't work at all.

Comfort Glow Vent-free Gas Heater CGN18B


the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
