Question about Heating & Cooling
The Pilot light on the Rinnai wall gas heater ( model 2000 1 ) has been off for about a week and now won't ignite when the Pilot Ignition section of the heater control is depressed. We just bought the house and the previous owner turned the control knob to Pilot Off. There is no clicking sound when the control knob is depressed. Is there a trick to getting it to start again or is it a professional job
The trick is that it may take a long time for the flammable portion of the gas to reach the pilot light orifice where the flame lives. This happens a lot when the pilot flame has been out for some time. There won't be a clicking sound as YOU are supposed to provide the flame - it's not like a cooking stove with such conveniences, because the pilot light is only an occasional thing to light it's rare to find an ignition source built in. I'd hate to see you spend good money when all you need to apply here is time and a flame.
