Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

It sounds to me like you have a bad flame sensor.Luckily most of the time they are pretty easy to change. If you have your manual it will show you the physical location of flame sensor. Usually 1 or 2 screws holding it in place. Remove screws and unplug wires to remove sensor.Install new sensor and hopefully you're in business. Thank you.

My water heater pilot light won't stay lit


I would try cleaning the thermo couple surfaces with some steel wool... Both where the flame contacts the sensor, and the electrical contacts. Even a small increase in voltage may be enough to hold the pilot valve open. Both black, and white soot on the sensor end, can act as an temperature insulator, lowering the output voltage.
As for finding the part numbers for replacement: http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/media/48391/242117_RPPCR01111-Reliance-Parts-Catalog.pdf

Gas Hot Water Tank Not Producing Hot Water

Pilot will not stay lit



Trying to light your pilot light and it keeps going out when you turn on you gas valve. This is a common problem when your thermo-couple goes out. The thermo-couple sends a small electrical charge to the gas valve to keep its self lit. When the unit calls for heat the pilot flame gets bigger producing more electric and tells the gas valve to open the main gas valve to the burner tubes. The thermo-couple is an easy item to change most of the time. You will need to follow these steps to change out your thermo-couple:

1. Turn off the gas (there is an inline shut off on the supply line before it reaches the gas valve, you need to turn this crossways to the pipe)

2. Locate the thermo-couple it will look like this and be attached to the gas valve

3. Unscrew the thermo-couple from the gas valve

4. Remove the other end of the thermo-couple from the pilot holder

5. Measure or take the old thermo-couple to the hardware or appliance store with you to get the proper length (there are many different lengths of thermo-couples)

6. Reinstall the bulb end at the pilot

7. Reinstall the threaded end on the Gas Valve (make sure not to cross thread the thermo-couple it should start by hand)

8. Turn the gas valve to the pilot position and hold down the red button wait a few seconds then turn off and do again (you will need to do this around 5 times in order to get the gas back up to the pilot light then try and light the pilot)

9. Try to ignite the pilot light.

10. Once you get the pilot light lit you will want to hold down the button for 60 seconds then turn the gas valve to the on position.

Here is an image of a thermo-couple (they will all look similar to this):

I have a 30000 btu rinnai floor heater mod 630530. The pilot wont stay lit . I have installed a new thermo couple . please help


be sure the thermocouple is in the pilot's flame and hold down the pilot lighting button long enough to heat it before trying to operate the heater...20 to 30 seconds should be enough. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad gas valve

How do you relight the gas stove.


not knowing the year ,, there are 2 ways stoves light, pilot light and glow plugs, following the gas line into the oven itself, If it has a pilot light you will see the control for it,, just hold a match or flame to the end of it and you should see a button to push,, If you have a glow plug,, it should light after a few second of turning on the knob,, watch to see if there is a glow next to the oven burner if there is and its not lighting,, your thermo coupling may be bad

I can't find an instruction manual for a Sunvic 307 xls online


This is simple to light. Turn the selector switch to pilot and push it down then push the striker button and watch it light. Hold for 30 seconds and then let off. Turn the selector switch to the desired comfort level and it will work.

Pilot won't light


You may have to bleed some more air out of the system.

Your ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and needs to be blown out with air(less than 30 psi).

Your regulator or gas valve may be faulty.

I have a Comfort Glow propane heater connected a 20lb tank. The pilot has a hard time staying lite but when I do get it lite ang turn the hearter on low it will shut off in a minute or in some cases 20...


If you have a pilot, you have a thermocouple. I would start with the thermocouple. The thermocouple is supposed to be heated by the piolet and to keep the pilot gas on. If it is faulty, the pilot will quit and the heater will not reignite until you light it again. Good luck...Lee

the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
