    It's probably caused by a defective Thermocouple. It's less than $10 at Graingers (they are everywhere) but you may need help to change it. Remove it so you know the exact part size ... some are longer than others. Use a charcoal lighter when trying to light a pilot because they are long it makes life easy

Three likely possisilities - one is insufficient gas pressure, another is a plugged pilot gas line and the other is that the thermocouple is defective. There are other possible problems, of course, but these are the most likely.

Igniter on my electrnic gas hot water heater does not work but tests good .so what can the problem be


Not enough information but I will try and guess. Assuming that you have a pilot. Set the thermostat to vacation mode. turn the gas valve knob to pilot and push down and then click the pizzo button several times to lite the pilot. You can look through the sight glass at the bottom of the water heater to see if the pilot is lite. If it didn't wait a few minutes and try again and look at the pilot and see if you can see a spark. If it did lite and then when you took pressure off of the knob and if went out you could have a bad thermocouple or a bad gas valve.....hope this helped.

I replaced the ignition transformer in my Teledyne Laars epc325 pool heater and cleaned everything. When I switch the heater on the burners all work fine but they only cycle on for about 10 seconds then...


This is probally your ignition wire is bad and not reading flame at the pilot or your pilot is bent or something so that when the pilot lights the flame isn't hitting the sensor probe at the pilot. When looking under the heater use a mirror so if you get roll out of the flame you don't get burned. Good luck and be careful.

Re Williams 3003622 Heater Please advise how to ignite pilot light.


You will first need to turn the control knob to pilot. Then depress the control knob button and hold it. Then press the push button piezo igniter several times until pilot lights or open pilot inspection cover and manually light pilot with match/lighter. You may need to hold the control knob for at least a minute. Then release the control knob and if the pilot stays lit then turn the control knob to on. If it does not light then repeat the process again.

Pilot lite will not stay lite


You need to change the thermocouple on the unit.

First check to see if the flame is hitting the thermocouple when the flame is on when you hold down the button. If it is then remove the the thermocouple and replace with the same size. You should be able to pick one up at your local hardware store.

If when you replace the thermocouple the flame does not stay lit still you may have a bad gas valve.
Hope this helps and please rate this!
