I have a 10 year old Weber and this has happened a few times to me. I just pull the grills off and then the flavour bars out . I take my wirebrushs and scrape off the holes on all three tubes. Light the BBQ and test to see if all of the holes are burning. Id their are a few still not producing a flame use the wirebrush on the tubes again. Please try not to burn yourself. Once the holes are clean and burning well - replace the flavour bars and grill. (I suggest you cleam your BBQ once every 6 months depending on your use). Good luck

Raypak 403A, burners will not stay lit for more than a few minutes.

i'm thinking after the main valve opens the pressure could be dropping in the pilot tube. this could be due to a dirty, plugged and sometimes spider web inside the pilot tube. rare but does happen, nice warm home for a spider. good luck. if not let me know. could also be weak pilot coil.

When i try to light the pilot it lights, but when i let go of the button it go,s out, it takes a long time to get it to stay lit then sometimes when i get it lit and turn the flame up and walk away it gos...

Make sure the pilot light flame is bathing the thermocouple; not too close, not out of the flame. If it seems in the right part of the pilot light flame, then the thermocouple may be failing; they only produce a few thousandths of a volt and it may be defective now. The thermocouple will look like a tube with a closed end and a thin tubing attached to it going to the regulator.

Check the burner tube closest to the pilot side of the burner tray. Is it burning a nice blue like all the rest? If it is not, clean out the jet on the manifold in front of the tube.

If it is ok, can you get a millivolt reading off the generator (thermocouple)? If so, get the reading with just the pilot on it, then with the burner load. Finally, watch that reading as the burners run for a while to be sure it climbs.

The only other thing I can think of would be to get manometer readings to verify gas pressures before and after the valve.

Pilot ligting instructions

many of the newer furnaces don't have a standing pilot. look to see if you have a gas valve with a knob on top that says off pilot and on. look to see if a tube the size of a pencil comes out of the valve and goes down by one of the burners, look to see if there is a little gold piece of metal tubing protruding down to the opening of the larger tube . that is where you place the match. i prefer to use a grill lighter. safer and positive flame. turn knob to off wait 5 minutes for any gas to disipate. be sure your incoming gas valves are all open . usually at the meter and one at the furnace. usually the handle is in line with the pipe when open. from the off position, turn the knob on the furnace gas valve to pilot position and push down on it as you turn. this lets gas flow to the pilot tube by the burner where you have you flame starter lit and waiting. once pilot lights hold down on button for 3 minutes or less. longer is better to be sure the thermocouple senses flame . then gently release the downward pressure and the pilot should stay lit and you gently turn knob to on. if pilot goes out you may have a bad thermocouple. be especially careful if its lp or propane as that gas does not disipate like natural gas and can virtually lay on the floor till ignited. also consider having the heat exchanger checked by a pro with a carbon monoxide detector. they do crack after a few years and can be deadly when they do. good luck

Picture tube doesn't turn off

The power relay driver or the relay itself is bad. Its sticking closed so the voltage is there for the power supply but the micro has turned off the tuner.
