SOURCE: reddy heat/scheu kerosene space heater no ignition

Typical kero heater uses either a spark ignition or a hot surface. The hot surface igniter is very fragile. A small bump may break the elements. Flame is detected by a photocell, signal is sent to the lockout relay board. Change the igniter costs about 50 bucks.

I had close to the same problem i drain the tank added new fuel still no diffrence so i removed the filter going to the tank pick up flushed out with brake clean it work fine for half a day . I knew then i was on the right track . I went to the local hardware store and bought a tune up kit that had the filter in it,I replaced the filter going to the tank pick up and it's been working fine even in cold weather. Fuel quality has a big part to play in it's abbility to burn in colder tempicures.

SOURCE: Propane patio heater ignition problem

I would change the thermocouple and here is why:

The thermocouple is the pilot's, well, co-pilot! It is the electronic device that senses if the pilot flame is hot enough to sustain burning the gas fuel from the burner. If the thermocouple thinks it's safe, then it keeps open the main gas valve located in the pilot assembly. If the thermocouple does not sense enough heat from the pilot flame (such as when the pilot is out), then the thermocouple shuts off the gas valve to the burners.
How the Thermocouple Works
So what is this thing and how does it work? Well the thermocouple (technically called a thermocouple junction) is a device that contains two metal wires welded at the ends and placed inside a protective metal case. The thermocouple sensor is found at the business end of the pilot flame and is designed to be placed in the hottest part of the flame. The other end is connected to the pilot valve body. As the thermocouple heats up, it produces a small amount of electricity and when it gets hot enough from the pilot, send a signal to open the gas valve by using a solenoid operated by a 24 volt transformer. The thermocouple calls the shots, and by converting heat to an electrical signal, it allows the gas valve to open or close. Once the gas valve is open, gas is then constantly supplied to the pilot and as required for the gas burners (as called for by the thermostat). If the pilot goes out, then the thermocouple gets cold and produces no electric signal to open the gas valve's solenoid and the gas valve shuts off the gas supply to the pilot and burners

SOURCE: Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.

Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.

Can ignight but when button is released flame goes out?


you have a problem with security valve you can find a small pin next to the ignition candle, make sure that this pin is close to the fire when pressing the button, this pin needs to heat to generate a low voltage to the valve in order to keep providing gas.

Heater


It sounds like the ignitor is not working, Since the heater is not detecting a flame it goes to lockout. Check the ignitor wiring to see if it is in good shape. Sometimes the connection where the wire (from the IID) connects to the ignitor gets corroded.

It could also be the IID which makes sure the safety loop is complete before calling for heat and sending current to the ignitor. Good luck with it.

Atwood water heater g6a8e lights but flame goes out after 5 to 10 seconds. I replaced igniter / thermocouple and it worked for a while but problem is back. So I need to replace circuit board?


Make sure you pull connector off and clean it and contacts on board. Be sure igniter is in flame good too. Does it have the thermal cut off in-line? Its the little resistor looking piece inside the plastic cover. If it does, and still running a few seconds and going out, remove it from the circuit, and connect wire end to where you removed cut out from, thus eliminating it from the circuit, and test it. If that cures it, replace that cut-out, as it is a safety device in case of flame up, it cuts gas off to prevent fire. Just leave it out long enough to test it.

No hot water no flame gwh1600h bosch


Tell me more! --
Do you have any other gas appliances in the house?-- and they are firing OK? Can you hear the gas flowing when you push in on the ignition start button? -- There should be a spark as you 'snap' the button?
Remember-- YOu get no ignition of the big flame, until you have water flowing--
How old is the heater?-- Could there be come obstruction in the water flow sensing device?

Furnance goes on won't fire


Hello, if the burners do not fire at all there could be a few reasons, the igniter could be bad, the burners could be dirty not allowing gas to flow, the pressure switch could be open. There should be a led light code on the control board that will tell you where to look. Begin by checking the hose between the inducer motor and pressure switch, it could be loose, kinked, or have a obstruction in it such as water not allowing the switch to close, also check the flue pipe for any obstructions. If the switch checks out good than the igniter should be inspected for any cracks or white spots, this is a sighn that the igniter is weak and should be replaced. If the igniter is good then clean the burners.

Pentair Minimax CH Propane Millivolt Ignition Heaters error E05 what is it?


If you are firing, and then going off and getting an E05, your igniter is to blame. It may be glowing but it's getting weak. The diagnostic goes further but that is usually the fix.. With inactivity, the igniter is always to blame. You really need to fire it off weekly to make it reliable and make sure that your heater is serviced at least one time a year to keep all the internal components operating as designed.

Heater is on firing up- everything seems ok but there is nogas-goes thru the cycle with igniter glow orange but does not ignite- there doesnt seem to have any gas present to ignite weathermaker 8000


the igniter has to have proper omhos to open gas valve.
recommend replacing igniter. be careful not to touch new igniter with bare hands. oils in the skin of your hands will cause the igniter to get too hot and burn out quick

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
