You will need to check the pressure regulator for the gas.
It sounds like the gas pressure is to low to keep the pilot lit.

Pilot light blew out by a fan..I turned the control off..How do I Ignite Please


First locate where to light pilot. You can do this by following thin aluminum colored tubing from control valve to inside heater.In general on top of your gas control valve is a knob. Turn indicator of this knob to pilot and depress knob. This will start gas flow to pilot at end of thin tube. Hold this knob in the depressed position and light pilot. DO NOT release knob for 30 -45 seconds. Then release knob and pilot will remain lit. Then turn knob to on position. If pilot will not stay lit you may need a new thermo coupler, which senses heat from flame to keep pilot gas flow open.
Good luck

Village series QV32B pilot light won't stay lit


Classic symptom of a malfunctioning thermocouple. When you press the knob, you force the gas valve open so gas will flow. The function of the thermocouple is to confirm that the pilot is lit and allow gas to continue to flow when you release the valve. A new thermocouple is not that expensive. Good luck!

Heater pilot light will not stay lit after knob is released


99% of the time it is just dirt and dust in the pilot light. NOT a bad thermocouple! These units generate their own power through the pilot light and it has to burn perfectly. Turn off gas supply, remove the cover and the pilot light assembly, including disconnecting the tiny gas line from the gas valve. Blow compressed air in, around and through it to get dust out. Replace everything, use soap bubbles at gas fittings to leak test and light the pilot. I bet it stays lit.

How do i light pilot light?


Remove front cover,or just lower section if you can. they usually just need to be lifted up about an inch or so and pulled out. However some have covers that snap in place. After you remove cover locate gas valve. It should have a control knob on top with markings for on, off, and pilot. Set control to pilot. Follow lines from gas valve to burner compartment, one goes to main burner one ,small copper colored line is the thermocouple, other line is the pilot. Turn thermostat down as far as it will go. Make sure gas supply valve in line to heater is on and then depress pilot control , when you have pilot control depressed have a match or other small flame source close to pilot assembly. If it lights then hold down on pilot control for a couple of mins. Slowly release pilot control and if it stays lit turn gas control to on. Turn thermostat up to call for heat and burner should light. If pilot doesn't stay lit when you release pilot control then try again holding pilot down longer. If it still won't stay lit then thermocouple will need replace. Good luck. Thanks

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

Need to light the pilot light


I am not familiar with this particular brand. What type of heater is it? Normal pilot lighting is done by setting the gas valve to the "Pilot" position and then pushing on the valve to manually open the pilot. After this, light the pilot and continue holding the valve for 30sec to give the thermocouple a chance to heat up. Release the valve and it should stay lit. Turn the gas valve to "On" and you're done. If it doesn't stay lit after releasing the valve, replace the thermocouple. If it doesn't light at all, call a technician out to check gas pressure, orifice, and pilot assembly.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.
