Its possible you have a bad flame sensor or thermocouple. this is the least costly repair. in fact thermocouple usually can be purchased at local hardware stores and replaced easily. if that doesnt fix it then you have a bad pilot valve and will need to have a certified gas technician fix it for you..

Pilot lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

I changed the thermo coupler and the pilot light does stay lit but the burners won't light


If you are referring to a gas fireplace:

  • Make sure the pilot knob is turned from "pilot" to "ON" or it will never run.
  • If the pilot knob is "ON", and the pilot is lit, but the burner won't light, it could be a bad Thermopile. The thermopile is the other safety mechanism in the pilot assembly that controls the burner.

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

The pilot assembly may need cleaned out and the orifice cleaned, also the gas valve may need to be replaced, to check for proper voltage from the thermocouple you need a flame source and it takes a meter that can register DC milliamps, and should be 350 to 750 millivolts. Heat the thermocouple with the pilot or other flame source and check, if OK, gas valve is weak.

Pilot light on the gas boiler won't stay lit it's


The pilot flame must touch (burn) the tip oqef the t-couple to hold the magnet in the gas value open.make sure the pilot orifice (hole) is clear.the pilot pressure (in the tube) is factory set full open & can only be adjusted down (less). Also check the gas **** didn't get closed or turned half way.? Assuming its not the t-couple. If all is good & it still won't stay on. Replace the gas value.!

Im calling for heat from the thermastat and control panel, the boiler light and and the fan is running, but no matter how many times i keep re trying the pilot and burner will not commence, is there...


I would check to make sure control on gas valve is in on position and pilot is lit if you have a standing pilot. If you have a spark or hot surface ignitor make sure they are trying to lit pilot. If you have standing pilot model and pilot lit is not on. Turn control on gas valve to off,wait five mins. then turn to pilot. Depress botton and try to light pilot. If it lights hold down for a couple of mins. then release.. If pilot stays lit turn control to on. If thermostat is calling for heat this should bring main burner on. If pilot does not stay lit then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks

there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple
