Question about Heating & Cooling
There are two heaters which were just put back into service after the winter. They are both acting the same way. The tanks were just filled. The main flame was OK at first but after one time they are puny and go out easily. One might suspect the tank safety valves, the regulators and ... what else? I don't think the pilot light is needed after the main flame has been ignited.
This sound like the thermocouple or flame sensor is bad .
Thermocouple is connected from gas valve and it sits next to pilot so when flame is established this heats up and tells the unit to stay on ,same as a flame sensor
