Question about Teledyne Laars Laars Lite 2 Pool Heater 250,000 Btu / Natural Gas

I have a natural gas pool heater. When I release

I have a natural gas pool heater. When I release the pilot light valve, the light will not stay lit. As long as I keep the valve pressed in, it will stay lit. I have checked all the connections and they seem to be fine, any ideas of what to check next.

Thanks

The thermocouple called a thermopile is bad its that silver coated two wire thing that runs to the pilot light area and needs replacing.

Why won't the pilot light stay lit?


You have a "pilot generator" that sits in the flame of the pilot light. This generates a low voltage output from the flame of the pilot light. This voltage goes to the gas valve and tells the valve that the pilot is lit and to keep the pilot gas line open.
In almost all cases replacing the pilot generator will resolve the issue . They run about $60-$75.
Other causes may be the gas valve itself or a short in the safety loop, in either case should be looked at by a pool tech.

Pilot wont stay lit when i release push down button on gas valve


Are you certain you are connecting the generator to the correct terminals? Is the pilot head partially blocked not allowing the flame to reach the generator even though the pilot is lit? Can you read the millivolts on the generator leads? Is the reading 400mV or higher? I assume it will be with a new generator but if it is not then the flame is not across the generator as it should be. If it is, be certain you are connecting the two leads properly and in the correct order. The generator has polarity so it needs to be connected to the valve properly. The tag up inside the heater should give you the correct locations for the white and red wires on the valve.

Natural gas hot water heater not stying lit


Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

Do not know how to start pilot light


There should be instructions on the inside of the heater access door. Make sure you are comfortable working with gas heaters. Make sure the shutoff valve supplying gas to the heater is on. Turn the gas valve to "pilot", press and hold it while attempting to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue holding the gas valve knob down for about 30 seconds. The pilot should stay lit once you release the knob. If the pilot stay lit, turn the gas valve to "on". Replace the heater access door and make sure you have proper water flow and attempt to light the heater. If it will not light, or the pilot will not stay on, you will probably have to replace the pilot generator. It provides voltage to run the heater and after time it wears out and produces less and less voltage. A millivolt heater runs on less than one volt so any power loss can be a problem. If you are able, test the pilot generator with a multimeter to see if you are getting at least 500mv when the pilot is on. If not, you should replace the pilot generator or even the entire pilot assembly. Hope this helps...

Your problem is the pilot generator where the flame is by the burners. This needs to be repalced. That is what is causing the pilot to go out and not start. It is a flame sensor and also tells the gas valve when to release more or less gas.
