The pilot light is out on my valor gas fire place. When I go to light it the flame comes on but if you let the button up to turn on the burners it goes out.


Keep the pilot gas control pressed down for 30 seconds to a minute after it lights to allow the thermopile in the pilot light to heat up. If you are already doing this the thermopile needs replacing

Pilot light keeps going out


pilot light keeps going out! more then likely its the thermal coupling doing this. if bad it shut all gas to heater for a safety measure. just shut power off, then turn gas off and replace it. then you should be ready to go. to relight heater hold down on gas vavle knob in the pilot position, hold down and light it at the coupling where gas comes out. when it is lit, continue to hold down for 60 seconds. release knob very slow. then if its lit, turn to the run position. if flme goes out, wait at least 5 minutes to expel the gas fumes and turn to pilot and try again. good-day !

The pilot light goes out. When I go to re-light the pilot and turn the temp for vacation to medium the flame goes out again.


The pilot light jet may have got a little bit of dirt or grit in it which is preventing it from keeping alight. Try probing the jet with a fine piece of wire to see it the blockage can be dislodged. You may have to unscrew the jet to clear it by blowing air through it. Make sure gas is turned off first before removing any parts.

The pilot light also has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If flame goes out it shuts gas off to the pilot jet. The thermocouple is bypassed by a switch during the initial ignition and once the thermocouple warms up after a minute or two of holding in the bypass switch, it should maintain the pilot. If, after cleaning, the pilot light keeps going out, it would seem that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced

Pilot goes out when you turn up thermstat


The thermocouple, the part that is heated from pilot light and produce small electricity and is connected to the gas valve, is a small copper pipe wire, need to be replace since it can not enough electricity so to keep the electromagent on valve on when you try to turn up and the gas coming out from the burner is blowing out the pilot light.
So the most posible reason is to replace the thermocouple which is the cheapest part. Their is a very small chance that the gas valve is faulty but this depents how old the fryer is and how much have been work.

Why does the pilot light keep going out?


Make sure your pilot flame is hitting the thermocoupler. If not then use air to clean pilot port and try again.

After heating pilot goes out . my igniter is bad so i light manually and after heating main burner shuts off and so does pilot


The thermocouple that controls the gas to the pilot light must be bad. The thermocouple, when it is heated by the pilot light keeps a valve open that keeps gas flowing to the the pilot light. This thermocouple closes the valve that supplies gas to the pilot light, this is to prevent gas from continuing to escape when the pilot light goes out. This is a safety issue, I recommend that you call a professional about this problem. You might be able to repair it your self by replacing the thermocouple but I still recommend that you have it checked by a professional.

light pilot, after pilot is kit hold valve button to keep gas manually coming out when valve is set to on pilot should stay lit, if pilot goes out right away you can gently sand thermocouple to clean foreign material off the end if this does not work thermocouple may need to be replaced.

Pilot light won't stay lit.


Ensure that gas is getting to the pilot , or you may have a devective pressure regulator.
If gas is getting to pilot and pilot is turning off, then you need to replace the thermocouple.
The thermocouple function is to turn off the gas if there is not enough temperature, so to prevent gas leaks if the pilot light goes off.
Near to the pilot light there should a part similar to a small metal tube directly in contact with the flame. Thermocouple is wired back to the gas valve.
When the pilot is on, and temperature is steady, the thermocouple will generate a small voltage that will keep the gas safety valve open. In case the pilot light goes off, the thermocouple will cause the valve to close. When you hold the pilot light button , the thermocouple will normally reach enough temp to keep valve open.
If the termocouple is faulty, it will turn off as soon as you release the igniter button.
Replacing thermocouple is an easy repair.

Call the number listed on the owners documentation to get the replacement part.
