Sounds like the lamp as wired between the feed and output instead of common and output.

How do I light my janitrol ucs100-55 heater?


you need to turn on the gas supply. then turn the button on the valve to the "light" position. now press down that button repeatidly until the pilot light lights, when the pilot lights you will need to hold that button down for about 15 seconds. then when you release the button the pilot should stay lit. when it does... turn the button to the "RUN" position. thats it... turn up the thermostat and the heater should kick in.

CGA Mclain .Natural Gas boiler issue 70k btu with a effikal ventx damper, model RVGP. There is no blower for ventilation, no control board with lights. Pilot light will not stay lit. have already replaced...


hey Carli suspect you mean the pilot goes out as soon as u turn your gas control valve back to the on position!? If this is so, you will have to probable reset the flue spill switch located right at the exaust outlet. OR, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE ANOTHER LIMIT switch in the same circuit in series. If the pilot goes out when u release the pilot press down knob, then it is your thermo couple is loose or fininshed,or the pilot flame is not aimed properly at the sensor (thermo couple)

Hand-wheel above the lighting knob springs back when i move it! Have I to light it first to be able to regulate? Ulf Manual?


Move that knob to PILOT and mash it down, then keep a holdin it down till it stays down on it's own after you done lit it. The copper/nickel alloy inside the thermocouple tip must get hot enough to produce electrical current and keep that sprang loaded electromagnet safety feature open. The whole idea is IF the pilot goes out the magnet will release (when the thermocouple cools down) and close off the flow of raw gas. Clever ain't it? Once you get the pilot to stay lit by itself when you let off the knob, then advance the knob to the ON position. The heater should come on unless you have a separate temp knob. If that is the case depending on how cold it is you would turn that temp knob up a hair.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

The pilot light on my gas water heater continually goes out. I can re-light the pilot and get it going. The gas burners goes on runs for awhile. I'm assuming when that when the temp hits the desired temp...

The pilot assembly should look similar to the pic above. Depending on where you live, you may be required to hire a certified plumber to replace the parts. If not you can do it your self. Keep in mind if it's not staying lit you also need to check the thermostat and the thermocoupler before replacing the pilot assembly. There is a good chance it is just the thermocoupler going out. It is one of the first things to check when troubleshooting a pilot light problem with a gas water heater. A thermocouple determines if the pilot light is lit. If it's not lit, the gas valve fails. If that's the problem, replace the thermocouple.


  1. Shut off the gas valve on the water heater and the gas valve on the line near the heater. Remove outer and inner doors, and loosen the pilot and supply tubes and the thermocouple connections to remove the burner assembly.
  2. Step 2 Loosen the screw holding the thermocouple to the bracket. Remove old thermocouple. Bring it with you to the store to ensure you are buying the proper replacement.
  3. Step 3 Install the new thermocouple. Position the thermocouple so that the pilot flame heats 1/2 inch of the tip.
  4. Step 4 Reinstall burner assembly in the water heater. Tighten burner supply tube, pilot tube and thermocouple connections. Tighten thermocouple no more than a quarter turn more than hand-tight.
  5. Step 5 Turn on both gas valves. Check supply tube and pilot tube for leaks with soapy water. If soap bubbles, tighten connections to fix leak. Ignite the pilot light, and make sure the thermocouple tip is heating up. Replace inner and outer doors.
