Re: less then a yr. old double sided wall heater

First make sure the thermostat is working right. Make sure the wire connections on the valve are good and tight. If all good, culprit is the thermocouple or pilot generator also called a thermopile. Different style and names, all have the same purpose.

Wall unit is only three years old pilot stays lit but unit wont fire up. even when disconected from thermastat and ttwo wires are put toether

Check for 24 AC volts out of the transformer. One side (typically white and black wire) you will get 110 volts and the other 24 volts all the time Yellow wires or two wires same color).

Pilot light won't stay lit when you try to turn control knob to thermastat. Is it the thermocoupler, the control valve or the pilot assembly?

Once your pilot is lit the thermocouple sends millivolts to the gas valve to tell it that the pilot is lit and to allow the gas valve to open. Check to see if your thermocouple is in the pilot flame. I f it is then you will need to replace the thermocouple.

GWN10T pilot blows itself out

You must clean the pilot regularly to ensure it burns properly. Use a small can of air for cleaning computers and blow air through the pilot to remove dust and small particles that accumulate in the pilot barrel. Use several burst being that it is 2 years old and has not been blown out. THe manual references cleaning the pilot in the maintenance section.

Patio Heater pilot lights won't stay lit

crappy pilot flame (not properly heating the thermocouple), bad thermocouple, thermocouple loose where it screws into the pilot safety valve, bad safety valve magnet.

One or more of those is the problem.

Oh...there is also a saftey case it tips over. It will also cause the pilot to not stay lit (if the switch or wires that go to i are faulty)

Rinnai wall heater won't lite.

You may need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the pilot orifice. If the pilot does not stay lite you may need a new thermocouple. Good Luck.

Cozy dual sided wall heater

There isn't much to these things, its either the pilot generator or the gas valve. Or maybe both, try the first, then the second.
