There is a safety built into the gas valve that will not allow you to turn the know to the "ON" setting until after 3 minutes of cooling. Sounds like it is stuck not allowing you to turn it on even after more than that. Other than a solid rap on the gas valve to see if it pops back, you will need to replace the gas valve. Even if you get it to reset, you may be facing this again so replace the valve. Make sure you get a valve designed for the correct gas (L.P. or Natural Gas) because the gas valve is not convertable.

My pilot stays on on my propane furnace but will not light up


The Little Giant units use a Unitrol gas valve very similar to a water heater in the home. #1,urn the Unitrol gas valve to the "PILOT" position to ignite the pilot. Depress the plunger and hold it down then push the spark igniter button until you can see the pilot flame ignite.
You have a lit pilot so this is not a problem for you.
The pilot light stays on continuously by design.
Once the pilot flame is established, you then turn the on/off/pilot valve to the "ON" position and set the thermostat to the desired temperature range., it should then fire its main burner until the desired temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached, the main burner will shut off and the heater will go into a standby mode with the pilot flame still burning.
If you have turned the pilot valve to on and set the temperature high, it should come on, if not a new gas valve is required, they can be very difficult to replace due to rust.and most cases require a new unit,

Kozy world propane wall heater pilot will not light


This can be caused by several things:

1. The inline gas valve running to the the heater is OFF. Turn the valve ON.

2. The gas control knob on the heater is not exactly in the PILOT position. Unless the knob bottoms
out and you feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you. It's not exactly
in the PILOT Position. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds
to allow the Thermocouple to full heat.

3. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned, as do the burners.*

4. The LP Gas Tank is empty or to low to maintain te proper gas pressure.

* Here is a link to a demonstration on how to properly clean the pilot & burners.

My fathers Bosch water wizard tf 250 will not start. the water will flow but no gas will not ignite or come through the pipe to the heater. the gas bottle is full. thanks Dave Tooley


Dave, make sure that the gas valve on the Propane tank, is fully open and that the inline gas shutoff valve near the heater is turned ON. Those are the basic two things that would prevent the gas from flowing thru the gas line, to the heater.

If the above valves are ON, the problem then lies with the gas control valve on the water heater. If it has pilot light that has to be lit, make sure that the heater's gas control valve is properly in the PILOT Position, before attempting to light it. It must be able to be pushed ALL the way in and you should feel strong pressure pushing back at you (other than spring pressure). When you feel that, it's in the PILOT Position and ready to be lit. Once it's lit, continue to hold the Pilot Button in for 1 minute, then release it. If the Pilot stays lit, turn it to the ON Position.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The pilot on my Procom QL300TYLA will not light. It appears that no propane is getting to the pilot. I tried lighting the pilot and burner with a BBQ lighter but nothing. No propane getting to the unit....


sounds like you have a blocked pilot injector. normally part of the pilot head. if you can remove it , blow it out with compressed air but it must be removed from the pilot head. commonly known as a Pilot restrictor,Pilot spud or Pilot injector

My propane heater not working right


This could be due to insufficient gas pressure. When you turn the knob to get the flames going, observe the pilot light. If it gets smaller, or burns with less intensity, it means you have insufficient gas pressure. If the pilot light gets smaller, the temperature of the thermocouple drops, so the electrical current produced by the thermocouple also drops. The stove interprets this drop in voltage to mean that the oxygen level in the room has dropped (because a drop in oxygen content likewise would cause the pilot light to get smaller).

your pilot assy is clogged, disassemble the pilot assy completely and inspect the orifice. there should be a tiny pinhole in the end of the orifice, clean well with small wire brush and reassemble, don't forget to clean the thermocouple while you have the assy out.
