Question about Heaters
The pilot turns on and works fine but when the heater reaches the desired room temperature and the unit turns off, so does the pilot light.
I've replaced a Williams wall gas heater non-electric. The thermostat is connected right and mounted on the wall. But, there's a thick black copper wire on the side of the furnace tagged thermostat. I don't know what to do with it? Where do you connect this wire? When it touches the top screw of the three screws running vertically(where the other wires are connected). The burner lights up and stays on, even if you play with the wall thermostat. Touching the other two screws doesn't do anything. Now, the manual talks about connecting it to the venting wires? Extra wires coming from the top or maybe somewhere else in the wall? I've left it connected to the first screw, ran the heater. But, it never turns off? Any suggestions? Thanks

Is this an old heater? If so the burner may be in bad shape so when the thing turns off it is blowing out the pilot flame. You happen to notice a whooshing sound when the thing goes off?

If your old furnace is faulty replace the unit for safety and efficiency. it will pay for itself in energy.
