Make sure the pipes are full of water. Check the thermostat to see if it is calling for heat. Make sure the thermostat is set to a temperature higher than the current temp of the water. If all those things are Ok then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.

How do you light the pilot


Turn the gas knob to the pilot setting, press it in and hold it. You should hear gas escaping while in this position. Do not let more than about 10 seconds of gas out at one time as it may pool. Light the pilot while holding the gas knob down for a minute. Release the gas knob (the pilot flame should stay lit) and turn it to the ON position. To make sure the gas heater is working properly, turn up the thermostat and see if the heater heats up. How To Light The Pilot Light On Gas Heater

Need to light pilot light


You need to turn the knob on the gas valve (inside the heater) to the "pilot" position. Then, while holding a flame over the pilot assembly push down on the knob.

Gas should come out of the pilot and ignite. Continue holding the knob down for 10-15 seconds. Release the knob and the pilot should stay lit. If not the pilot generator may need to be replaced.

Turn the knob to the "on" position, close the heater and turn the heater on and turn the thermostat to hot. The heater should fire. If it does not fire and the pilot goes out, that may also indicate a pilot generator problem.

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.

When i unplug my rinnai heater does that turn off the pilot light?


If it's a Vent-free (Vent-less) heater, not it does not turn OFF the pilot light. If it is a Vented Heater, yes unplugging the heater will turn the pilot light OFF. If you want to turn the pilot off on either unit, the best way to do it is with the Gas Valve, Pilot Control Knob. Turn the knob from the ON position counterclockwise to the OFF position and the pilot flame will go out.

Hope this helped you.

Pilot lights but main burner dose not light when turned on


possibly a fowled thermocouple if the thermocouple doesn's sense the pilot flame then it will not send a signal to the gas valve telling it that its okay to open cause the pilot is lit.
