THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!

SOURCE: pilot light on water heater goes out frequently

Check the following:

See if your heater has a pilot gas adjustment valve. It should be on the gas control valve somewhere. Not all heaters have these. It will be a screw on the valve that can be turned.

Make sure the thermocouple sensing bulb is squarely in the pilot flame and also check that the fitting where the other end of the thermocouple connects to the main gas valve is tight.

Check the pilot gas orifice (where the pilot gas comes out) for carbon build up - you may need to remove the pilot gas line and thermocouple assembly to get to this. This problem is pretty common.

Check the gas pressure to the heater. Run the hot water in the dwelling until the hot water heater starts. Check the flame on the main burner and see what color it is - it should be blue with possibly some yellow-tipped flames. If not, there could be a problem with the gas pressure at the heater or venting. If the heater has a gas pressure regulator, it may be out of adjustment or defective.

Finally, and this isn't very common, the pilot light can be extinguished if there is a draft problem, usually associated with an issue with the flue pipe venting system for the heater or another nearby gas consuming appliance.

The thermocouple is weak or the pilot needs to be cleaned. If the pilot flame is strong, try replacing the thermocouple which is the tube that the flame burns on runs back to the control valve/

My Armstrong gas furnace model #m921-g6 pilot blew out and now I can't get it to stay lighted .


Most instruction are similar but read How to light pilot carefully.
Did you apply a flame to the thermocouple until you could have pilot light lite?
most will have you hold flame for a couple minutes then rotate knob to on from pilot position.
remember be careful with gas and if still issue call plumber.

U can light the pilot lite,turn 2 ON it will stay lit 4 a couple of minutes then go out? If u turn the knob 2 low,med. It goes out pretty much immediately?I changed the thermocouple,blew the lines ou


Is the thermocouple secure, routed properly, no kinks, no sharp bends? Is the end of the unit properly aligned so the hottest part of the pilot flame is hitting the unit. Did you hold pilot switch in the light position for at least 30 seconds, before you set the gas valve to on? If all above OK, try this. Light the pilot using barbeque lighter once it lights keep the lighter on the t-couple for 30 seconds, then set the valve to ON and keep the lighter where it is. Once the main burner lights, remove the lighter. If the burner and pilot go off, your gas valve is bad.

2. Turn the appliance manual gas shut-off valve to the OFF position.
3. Turn the combination gas control knob to the OFF position.

5. Wait 5 minutes.
6. Turn the appliance manual gas shut-off valve to the ON position.
7. Turn the combination gas control knob to the PILOT position.
8. Light the pilot with a match while depressing and holding the combination gas control knob until the pilot remains

9. Turn the combination gas control knob to the ON position.
10. Turn the thermostat control knob to the desired temperature to turn burners ON.
11. Ensure that the door is closed during operation.

I have a 650 delta thermostatic gas combination control on a Rheem hot water heater that won't turn to to the proper pilot or off position to relight it. We have looked everywhere for trouble shootin


Jennifer, the instructions posted by Rheems on the heater are wrong. You must first rotate the dial clockwise, use force (in our our case) to get the pilot to its position. The folks at Rheems are nuts not to check their instructions before printing them and plastering them on their hot water tanks. Disgraceful, period.

How do you re-light pilot light


Turn the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position. Sometimes you have to slightly depress the knob to turn it..don't use a pair of pliers. In the pilot position.. push the knob in and light the pilot..keeping the knob pushed in for 30 seconds. Let go and the pilot should stay on. Turn the knob to the on position and set the thermostat.

Need to light pilot cozy brand gas wall heater


Is there a "Pilot" marking on the knob? Try moving the knob 1/2 way between on and off and depress the knob. If you are in the correct location, the knob should depress in about 3/8 of an inch. Once you find the location where you can depress the knob, there should be a red sparker button that you can snap to light the pilot. Depress the pilot knob and snap the button a few times. There may be a small viewing port at the pilot. It may be covered by a small metal shield held on by a thumb screw. You can remove the shield to view the flame. OK so now you can depress the pilot knob, snap the sparker, look for the flame while still holding down the pilot knob and count to 30. Slowly release the pilot knob and check to see if the pilot is still on. Once it stays lit, rotate the knob to the "ON" position.

Where is the pilot light on the cozy w352e heater? the heater went off and does not go back on when i change the thermostat, and i can't see anything lit when i open it up, so i'm assuming i just need to...


Open the lower panel. You will see a valve with a knob marked On Pilot and Off. This is the gas valve. Turn the knob to Pilot. Push in on the knob and if you are in the correct setting, the knob will depress about 1/2" into the valve. Now look for a red button and snap it in much like a gas grill starter. Keep the knob depressed and look into the small viewing port to see if you started the pilot. Hold the knob for 30 seconds then let it out. You should see a blue flame. If you don't , try it again and hold the knob in longer this time. Once you get the pilot to lite, rotate the knob to the On position. If for some reason you can't get the pilot to stay on, you may need to replace the thermocouple. If the pilot won't light at all, you may need to get into the pilot Assembly with a long match or grill lighter and light the pilot.

I have an Amana dinosaur model P67470 dual HVAC. It's blowing fine but the pilot light's goine out. I can find the valve but don't know where to light it?


Not an easy one to get to. From the gas valve, follow the small 1/8" diameter (usually copper) line toward the heat exchanger. It will lead to a pilot assembly just over one of the burners. Using a long match or shis-ka-bob stick, hold a flame just over the pilot assembly until you see the pilot light. Remember you will need to have the gas valve knob on the Pilot setting and depressed into the gas valve. Continue to hold down on the knob for 15-30 seconds. Then after the pilot remains on, rotate the gas knob to the On position. Hope this helps!

I cant find the way on how to light uo the friar.


If you have a pitco 35 fryer, all you need to do is have gas connected and turned on, rotate the know on the gas valve to the pilot position, depress the knob, while holding the knob down light the pilot, normally located in between the burner tubes in the middle of the front of the fryer, hold the knob for 60 seconds, when you release the pilot should remain on. If it does rotate the pilot know to the "on" position, from this point the thermostat should control the fryer. If your pilot does not stat lit, press the red button on the hi-limit to reset it, it could be tripped and this would cause the pilot to not hold. Hope this is helpful.

Need to know how light pilot


First step turn the thermostat off. It is very important.
Next find the knob on top of the gas valve you will see writing on it turn it to pilot it could be in the off position so move it to pilot depress the knob where it goes down about one inch. Take a long lighter long match or something like that and hold at the pilot it will be back in the furnace by the front of the burners. Once the pilot lights hold the button for another 30 seconds. Release the knob now the pilot should be on and the next step is why you turned off the thermostat rotate the knob to on position. Go to the t-stat and turn on the heat.
