Question about Heating & Cooling
Can't get pilot light to light. Comes on (eventually after numerous tries) but as soon as release control, it goes out.
You can only test this with a volt meter capable of testing milivolts. or replace the thermocouple. the thermocouple is what the pilot flame is burning onto. the pilot flame could also be weak due to a dirty pilot orifice in which case the flame will appear lazy and yellow /orange. the thermocouple should test 30mv + - 10% you should contact a service company if replacing the thermocouple doesnt fix because gas isnt somthing a un-qualified DIYer should risk there home with.
