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).

My 1.5 yr old gas water heater has a pilot light problem


YOUR WATER HEATER HAS WHAT IS CALLED A STANDING PILOT-STAYS LIT ALWAYS WHEN THE PILOT GOES OUT YOU LOOSE EVERYTHING. YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE THERMOCOUPLE WHICH KEEP THE PILOT LIT. ONCE THE PILOT IS LIT THE THERMOCOUPLE SENDS IN MILLIVOLTS TO THE BURNER TO SAY ITS READY FOR BURNING
IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILURE WITH THIS REPLACEMENT PLEASE FIND SOME ONE WHO CAN. IT IS NOT HARD TO DO ASK A NABOR OR FRIENDS SOME HAS TO KNOW HOW. SERVICE COMPANYS ARE OUT FOR THE MONEY FOR A 10 MINUTE JOB

We have a 30+ yr old Ultra-Aire wall heater. The pilot light won't stay lit. We are replacing the pilot generator but it isn't working. What can you tell us about the wiring connections


You need to replace the thermocoupling.
Thats the flame sensor, and they cost around 8 bucks.

If the gas valve does not recieve signal from the sensor that there is flame it shuts down all gas flow.

the switch is broken, or the voltage on the power from the wall is lower than the voltage on the tank and therefore it could only powering one thing

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 switch...in 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)
