Question about Heating & Cooling
The clicking you are hearing is the gas valve trying to open but because the pilot light is out the valve shut back off. Sounds like the thermocouple is bad on the unit. The thermocouple sits net to the pilot light and allows the gas valve to open. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Williams wall furnace, top vent.
I've replaced a Williams wall gas heater non-electric. The thermostat is connected right and mounted on the wall. But, there's a thick black copper wire on the side of the furnace tagged thermostat. I don't know what to do with it? Where do you connect this wire? When it touches the top screw of the three screws running vertically(where the other wires are connected). The burner lights up and stays on, even if you play with the wall thermostat. Touching the other two screws doesn't do anything. Now, the manual talks about connecting it to the venting wires? Extra wires coming from the top or maybe somewhere else in the wall? I've left it connected to the first screw, ran the heater. But, it never turns off? Any suggestions? Thanks

after you relight have you tried to leave the gas valve on pilot for 10 to 15 minutes so the themolpile warms up enough to send mil-volt signal. you also have a thermocouple that senses flam so if the flame is not hitting that just wright it will shut off. Is this fire place ran off a thermostat or a on off switch. If you are running off a thermostat then i would try to find on/off switch and try that. You might have to change pilot assembly out.If you do this and don't have manual i would take a picture of the log set up so you put it back together. Make sure all connections are tight when you go back together

SOURCE: Torpedo heater wont stay lit.
Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.

Turn off the power to furnace.
on the last burner to light there is a small metal rod in front of the burner. This is a safety called the flame sensor. It is dirty. Unscrew it from the bar ( 1 Screw) unplug the connector wire from it and clean it with steel wool. it will be kind of burnt. Plut back in place and turn on the furnace to cycle.
