Pilot light on heater

We have had the heater for three years and this is first problem. Before, the pilot lit on first click and never went out. Now, it takes several clicks (sometimes I even manually light it). Then when the heat comes on and cycles off, the pilot light will remain on for a while then just go off. How can I keep the pilot light lit (and a bonus would be to make it easier to light)?

Re: Pilot light on heater

Check the millivolt generator is working. this is the copper colored tube in the flame path. for spark perhaps the gap is too wide. the flame sensor electrically keeps the pilot valve open.

I have a Martin ventless gas log fireplace heater and can't get the pilot light to light. In the past, I've had problems keeping it lit, so I've kept pilot lit all year. The other day I successfully used...

You should the value there should be a pilot ajustment screw
some times it is hidden under another screw but should be close to where the pilot light line hooks to the gas value

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.

I have a coleman evcon and the gas keeps shutting off

The click noise you hear is the magnet inside the valve dropping out. Which means, the voltage that energizes it is low or interupted. Possible, weak pilot flame, bad thermocouple or bad secondary limit switch. This limit switch is located left of the main control. made of ceramic. It can also be a bad gas valve...

Need to turn on pilot light of Williams 3003622 serial # 400518D

Find the gas valve and turn it to pilot. (Or light) Use a long reach lighter. Light the lighter and press the knob in. Light the pilot and continue to hold the knob in for about 15 seconds. When you release it, the pilot should stay lit. If it doesn't, you need a new thermocouple. That's the small tube that the flame touches when the pilot's lit. They're inexpensive and usually not too hard to replace.

Pilot will not light

The Pilot indicator will appear to line up with the arrow on the base, and even push in as though allowing gas to flow, but if it is just 1mm out of alignment, no gas will flow. So the solution is to move the valve in the Pilot mode slightly in one direction or the other to see if/when gas flows.

Pilot will nost stay lit!

you could be right it could be a dirty pilot remove the pilot assembly and clean it has an orifice inside where the gas has to pass through its about the size of the point of a pin so its possible that its clogged, if this doesnt work the thermocuple might be bad
