Question about Cozy (W352E) Heater

Pilot will nost stay lit!

I went to turn on heater and noticed it did not make normal noise. I noticed pilot was out and went through steps to relight. Observing pilot light when holding "gas control lever" all the way to left, set pos.,pilot lit but after holding for 1 min. went out. Made 3 attempts but went out after each time. Looking at pilot flame, it looked like nozzle was melted. Could it just be dirty? or need replaceed? This unit has worked flawlessly for 5 or 6 years.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You could be right it could be a dirty pilot remove the pilot assembly and clean it has an orifice inside where the gas has to pass through its about the size of the point of a pin so its possible that its clogged, if this doesnt work the thermocuple might be bad

Small explosions


What is the make and model of the gas valve? They are not made to be taken apart and so the springs might be in wrong or the calibartion screws set wrong. At this point you probably are going to end up having to replace it.

There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

Rheem 22V50F1 pilot won't stay lit. Changed thermo couple & it lit, ran then went out. Let it sit overnight & it lit, ran then went out. What next? p.s. The unit is 5 years old. Thanks


If pilot lights and flame is robust and clear blue, and pilot goes out later, then some suspects can be excluded: air in gas line, low gas pressure, thermocouple is overtightened (finger-tight + 1/4 turn), thermocouple not positioned correctly in the flame, dirty pilot tube.
If flame is yellowish and small: then clean pilot tube and combustion parts.

Remaining suspects can include: air in gas line, low gas pressure, bad gas control valve, tight house so household vent fans pull air down water heater vent that blows out pilot, hot attic with inadequate ventilation, water dripping down vent.

Try cleaning the orfice for the pilot light. You will have to dis-assemble the fuel lines from the thermostat to the burner to get at it. The orfice has an extremly small hole in it, do not make it any larger, just clean it out.

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.

Need to turn on pilot light of Williams 3003622 serial # 400518D


Find the gas valve and turn it to pilot. (Or light) Use a long reach lighter. Light the lighter and press the knob in. Light the pilot and continue to hold the knob in for about 15 seconds. When you release it, the pilot should stay lit. If it doesn't, you need a new thermocouple. That's the small tube that the flame touches when the pilot's lit. They're inexpensive and usually not too hard to replace.
