Gascraft Farina portable heater won't ignite

I have a Gascraft Farina portable heater that I can't get going. The pilot light comes on but it does not ignite the ceramic plates hence no heat comes out.
I had it serviced and apparently fixed but it is still not working!

SOURCE: pilot light on but heater won't come on when I turn up the thermostat

Williams heaters have a manual reset for the spill safety switch. If the heater is not venting properly it will trip this switch and shut off main burner function. The switch is on the left side of the cover inside the small vent. You can use a screwdriver to push the button back in. If the heater then works you will need to get the vent inspected to make sure it is connected properly and there is no blockage.

SOURCE: stove top pilot light

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

SOURCE: heater burns for a while then it goes off and pops and the pilot go out

Hi again,
-perhaps you have resolved your issue, which is why you have not responded to my questions...this is great if it is true, but just incase I will attempt to answer it anyway

-the pilot does not require much fuel to maintain (more than you think..when you look at the summer bills)
-when the thermostat calls for the burner to fire, it opens the valve and the fuel SHOULD flow
-when insufficient fuel is provided, the increased demand actually causes the burner to extinish itself, which results in the valve automatically closing (safety feature)

Solution 1
-if the fuel is liquid (i.e. heating oil) there will be a filter which is likely the cause of the lack of fuel delivery....this is a $15 filter...available at many hardware stores..or even you fuel supplier
-the process is simple.

  1. ..TURN OFF THE FUEL (above/b4 filter)...
  2. spin off the filter...replace with the new one
  3. open the valve...bleed the system (don't screw the housing tight...let the fuel push the air out...ie. wait until the fuel spurts out the filter screws (this can be sorta messy)
  4. tighten filter...tada!
  5. if it works temporarily...then repeats the 'pop...goes out' then you still have air in the line
  6. if you followed the above steps 1-5...then we know it between filter and burner
  7. look at the bottom of the burner for the bleeder valve/screw...similar to car brake bleeder screw or a 1/2inch valve
  8. use a wrench...1/4 to loosen (have small bucket handy to collect fuel
  9. press & HOLD the red button to fire (note the fuel will now be pumped out the bleeder valve)
  10. wait a second or 2 for the 'stream' of fuel to be solid (ie. no bubbles in it)
  11. then tightten the valve the 1/4 turn...and release
  12. occassially you have to repeat this process a few times depending upon the length of fuel line
PLEASE BE CAREFUL....while the above is technically not difficult..you are dealing with a somewhat flamable liquid...(a bucket of fuel oil is actually difficult to light)...the 1st time is a steep learning curve...but after that you can do it in your sleep :)

if you are uncomfortable at all...then call a fuel burner technician...please!
Remember....anything other than a FIX-YA will lower my rating...so please if you have any other questions....ask....if not...then FIX-YA

SOURCE: Pilot goes out after heating cycle

Check regulator on the unit.
Check pilot unit on the heater
use soapy water to check for leaks if see bubbles turn off main gas supply valve.
always turn off gas supply before any checks or repairs are made
when all else failes call your local gas provider to check heater and gas supply

System shut out ....it says no spark


Possible pilot light issue. Seems to be an electronic ignition. The striker is damaged or missing. check any flow control valves, circuit breakers or special instructions re use of the pilot/starter/striker.

My light won't ignite on my mpi 441 monitor


this morning my heater, monitor 411, was running fine as always.
while it was running the power company came to work on a pole and turned the power off. it was down for about three hours. once power was restored it wouldn't come on.
the pilot light is off but I'm not sure if it's suppose to be while not running.I've tried priming it with three pumps, resetting by unplugging, beleeding the line, all don't work.
it's suppose to be 22f tonight so I could sure use some help.
oh, I have a manual but, of course, it doesn't cover the problem. I also called the company but got a voice mailbox...go figure.
somebody please help!

Pilot will light after 30 seconds when you try to move knob to on position the pilot goes out and heater won't ignite.


You need to replace the thermocouple.
When you light the pilot it is supose to heat the thermocouple.
the thermocouple produces a small electric current which allows the gas valve to open and keep the pilot going. and allowing the main burner to come on.

Pilot light wont ignite on patio heater


It may be that your cylinder is malfunctioning, cylinder has a leak, or the pilot is clogged. Please see steps below to troubleshoot. Note:Regular maintenance is critical to the successful operation of your patio heater.
  1. Is the cylinder valve closed? If so, open the cylinder valve but not fully.
  2. Check to see if you can light it manually. If the unit lights manually but not with igniter, service or replace igniter switch.
  3. Ensure that there is no air in the gas line. Open the gas line and bleed it (pressing control knob in) for not more than 1 - 2 minutes or until you smell gas.
  4. There may be a blockage in the orifice or pilot tube? Bugs and spiders get into the pilot assembly, venturi tube and burner ports causing the unit to either not light or poor performance.
  5. Is the regulator hose pinched or kinked?
  6. Cleaning the pilot assembly.
  7. If the piezo igniter won't spark to light the pilot, check the wiring to the igniter, It may simply have lost it's ground. Slide the wire off the igniter prong (looks like a thick needle) on the pilot assembly and then push it back on. That usually will reestablish the ground.
If you continue to have problems with the heater, contact Blue Rhino (the manufacturer) Customer Care 800-762-1142.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.
