It sounds like your main valve. The diaphram may be loose fitting or it has a small leak.

New Reliance gas water heater won't stay lit


There is a sensor that shuts off the gas to the burner if a flame isn't detected within a few seconds. It will usually look like a tube that extends into flame of the burner. It may be defective or it may just need to be repositioned so more of it is directly in the flame.

Gas burner wont stay lit


Is it the Pilot, or the main burner that won't stay lit?

The pilot has a little 'flame rod' in the path of the pilot flame, that conducts a tiny current thru the flame, to a detection circuit-- assuring that there is a pilot flame-- If that rod get's dirty, it can cause false trips. Is that any help?- Mack B

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

Pilot will stay lit but burner goes out about 1 minute after it lights


Hi,
The thermocouple is bad. You get the thermocouple very hot when lighting it, but then it cools down a bit even with the main flame on, and it shuts the burner down.
Replace the thermocouple and you will be good again.

Cant get my waterheater lighter to reignite


Sounds like the gas valve has failed. The gas valve can be replaced. It will unscrew out of the tank. Shut the water supply to the tank off and get the new gas ready to screw in. Take out the old and screw in the new, you will onlt lose about a cup or two of water if you are quick enough. Otherwise drain the tank down if you must. If you are going to replace the gas valve I would also replace the thermocoupler.

Water heater pilot light


it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
