I AM WORKING ON A COZY W501E WALL FURNACE AND CANT GET THE PILOT TO STAY LIT. i HAVE CHANGED THE GAS VALVE, THERMOCOUPLE,AND THE SENSOR FOR THE HIGH LIMIT. THE PILOT WONT STAY LIT.


Pretty much the only thing that will do that is the thermocouple not generating enough voltage for the valve to say it's OK.
Usually you need to hold the button for pilot lighting for 60 seconds. You can use a meter to check that it's generating enough power. The thermocouple has to be in the pilot flame properly.

I changed my thermocouple on my fireplace,it still wont stay lit


Thermocouple keeps the pilot lit.
Thermopile keeps the burner lit.
Please specify what won't stay lit...
If it's the burner, you may need to change the thermopile as well.
If the pilot still won't stay lit, you will want to make sure that the pilot flame is large enough to completely engulf the thermocouple and keep it hot. If it's too small, you may need to take some compressed air and blow out the pilot hood to remove any blockage.

My natural gas glo warm gwn6 wall heater keeps shutting off


Julie, the problem you're having with your DESA, Gas Glo Warm heater may be the result of a clogged Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the pilot. I have included a link on how to clean the pilot and the ODS, as well as the burner, that you can download and print for future reference.

http://www.desatech.com/techDocs/Cleaning%20Demonstrations.pdf

In addition, the thermocouple may be failing and will need to be replaced. To troubleshoot this, here is another link that will help you. http://www.desatech.com/techDocs/Thermocouple%20Troubleshooting.pdf


If after doing all of the above and you fin it's necessary to replace the Thermocouple, You can purchase one from A & B Sales

Pilot won't stay lit


If a standing pilot won't stay lit, the usual cause is a bad thermocouple. The thermocouple is a safety device with a probe that is kept heated by the pilot flame and produces an electric signal. Wires from the thermocouple connect to the main gas valve. If the thermocouple fails, the main valve shuts off gas to both the pilot and main burner. When you try to re-light the pilot, it goes out again as soon as you release the pilot button on the valve.

A new thermocouple is only $10 or so, and it's pretty easy to change. There are a number of how-to sites and videos showing how to change the thermocouple in gas furnaces and water heaters, and the process is similar in commercial ovens and fryers. Once you see what the thermocouple looks like and how it's installed in some other appliances, you'll be able to identify it in your fryer and see how to change it. That should get your frying again.

The pilot light doesnt stay on to light the fryer... is there anything i can do? it is a lincat twin gas fryer....


Hi and welcome to FixYa. Most of the time this is as simple as changing the thermocouple. Any Appliance parts source will most likely have one that will fit your unit. (GAS VALVE OFF) It is a matter or unscrewing the thermocouple nut from the gas valve and then un-mounting the thermocouple probe end to change it out.

Take your OLD thermocouple with you to your LOCAL Appliance parts source so they can match the total length. Heating and Air-conditioning stores may have the thermocouple but your going to pay up to purchase a thermocouple from them. Same goes for restaurant equipment sources! $$$

Just make sure before you reinstall the new probe assy that your clean / wipe out the gas valve hole where the thermocouple nut mates to the gas valve very well. The probe works via micro volts and any dirt / corrosion / debris can affect the way the probe operates.

After changing out the thermocouple everything should work normally again. If not then the gas valve itself has a problem (highly unlikely) In the future if you need detailed info please pass your units model number in your response.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Pilot light not staying lit, changed thermocouple, start up proceedure normal until the pilot button released.


Some things to check:

Make sure the thermocouple is squarely in the pilot flame and that the pilot flame is large enough to envelop the thermocouple. A weak pilot can be caused by gas pressure or a carboned-up pilot orifice (where the gas comes out). The orifice may need to be cleaned. Ordinary automotive carburetor cleaner will work. Don't try to stick objects into the orifice - damage may result. If you need to perform this step, make sure the gas is turned off to the heater first.

Make sure the other end of the thermocouple is clean and tight in the gas valve.

Hold the pilot plunger down for at least a minute to be sure to give the thermocouple enough time to heat up.

hello!! if you changed the thermocouple & the pilot still goes out !! could be a thermostat ( the electromagnet pilot safety ) goes bad !! make sure pilot is clean & should be sharp BLUE pilot !! not yellow & soft !! also hold down the button light the pilot use a digital volt meter set on dc milivolts a brand new thermocouple should test @ 30 milivolts+ - ! & if you have new style water htr with sealed combustion the thermocouple has a safety part of it ! change the thermocouple & make sure your vents for combustion air around the bottom of the water htr has lint & dust built up !!! kiddbrother i work for a gas company doing service !!
