Is there an adjustment to have pilot light stay on after given length if time. Our rev oven pilot takes longer then one minute. About 1 1/2 min


No it is a safety feature that the pilot has to heat up the thermocouple to assure the main gas valve that the pilot is alight and hot.

Relight combi pilot light?


These are designed not to light once the thermocouple fails.the thermocouple has a small wire that positions in to the pilot light which checks the pilot is on and keeps the gas governed.once the temperature drops it shuts off the gas to prevent a build up of gas in a room where a pilot light has gone out.this is why you need to hold the button in on reignition to allow the thermocouple to heat up so the gas keeps open.
Try to relight by turning on the gas ....pressing down and holding the button for at least 10 seconds whilst firing the piezo to ignite flame.do not release gas button for at least 10 seconds then slowly release.if the flame on the pilot will not stay alight....then it is likely the thermo has failed.try cleaning the metal wire that is above the pilot jet.still no joy then it needs replacing.hope my comment is of help...please vote.

Pilot LIGHT KEEPS GOING OUT OUT


The pilot light jet may have got a little bit of dirt or grit in it which is preventing it from keeping alight. If the pilot light has only a weak flame, the whoosh of the main burner igniting can quite often blow out the pilot. Try probing the jet with a fine piece of wire to see it the blockage can be dislodged. You may have to unscrew the jet to clear it by blowing air through it. Make sure gas is turned off first before removing any parts.

The pilot light also has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If pilot flame goes out for any reason, it shuts the gas off to the pilot jet to prevent unburned gas collecting and causing a safety hazard. The thermocouple is bypassed by a switch during the initial ignition and once the thermocouple warms up after a minute or two of holding in the bypass switch, it should maintain the pilot. If, after cleaning, the pilot light keeps going out, it would seem that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My gas dryer, 6 yrs old, isn't getting hot.


best way out for you is to have it serviced, it's most likley to be a thermal couple bevice not working if this is it the pilot light wont stay alight as well,,, the thermal couple has the pilot flam playing onto it and it holds the gass on,,, if the pilot light go's out for whatever reson the thermal couple switches off the gas suply to make it safe,,,
hope this helps you out?

DOMETIC RM 7651l HAVE POWER AND GAS TO THE FRIDGE BUT WONT START (TWO MONTHS OLD)


Igniting a Dometic gas fridge
    Electronic Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn on Electronic ignitor switch
    3. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing. The neon light will stop flashing
    Piezo Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    3. After approximately 10-15 seconds
      press Piezo knob several times until pilot light a lit
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing
  1. Check the Pilot light is alight
  2. The flame can be controlled by aperture ©
    Should no ignition occur, repeat the ignition process after 1 minute
    (This could take longer than 10 seconds if the unit has been out of operation for a prolonged period or after replacing the gas cylinder. (Cause: air in the lines)
  3. Once sufficient refrigeration has been obtained in the cooling tank at the MAX position, the control knob should be turned to the MIN position by low outside temperatures or when the refrigerator is only lightly loaded respectively the ambient temperature is below +18c in order to avoid over freezing the contents.
I hope this helps you...

Regards
