There is a thermo coupler that shuts the gass off if it is ba. It is locacted just in front of the pilot flame It has to sense the pilot to let the gss through. It is an easy fix and inexpensive.

The pilot seems to light but then when I turn the knob to ignite the main burner, the pilot goes out. Is there a technique to clean the igniting assembly?


let the pilot light burn for a few min and get hot after this try slowly moving the knob over to full burn. Sometimes it just need to heat up.

I have a RUUD Furnance with a piolet light. There


If you have a pilot, then this is an older furnace. Most of them use a 2 wire thermostat. Allot of the new digital, programmable thermostats require a 3rd wire - a common to the thermostat. Allot of old furnaces do not have a common terminal on the furnace board. It can be done, but takes a good technician. The way around this is to use a digital, programmable thermostat that will operate on straight battery. It will be stated on the thermostat package, saying it will operate with a common wire from the furnace or with only the use of the batteries.
Then make sure that you hook up the 2 wires to the "R" terminal and one wire to the "W" terminal, it doesn't matter which thermostat wire goes to which terminal.
Note: If you have a air conditioner installed, it will be a different story.
Sincerely,
Good Luck,

I dont know how to light the piolet


there should be an access panel on the bottom of the heater, it should open easily, don't force it,you'll see the gas valve on which is a knob, it says off, on, pilot,there also should be lighting instructions inside the panel, if not, find where you light the pilot, then find the pilot on, it will be a button on the valve or when you turn valve to pilot it will push in,now turn valve to pilot,lite pilot,push button/valve,hold 15 SEC

The piolet light will not stay lit on a GE Profile Smart Water heater.


Make sure there is not a direct draft hiting heater. this wil always blow out flame.
It could be thermo-cuppling. If this is bad,it wont leave gas come in to keep piolet light lite. hope this helps. :)

How flem sensor works in furness


After you hearthe click from the ignitor your piolet will light. the flame sensor (mounted next to the piolet (tip in the flame) ) will sence the heat from the piolet sending a milivolt siginal back to the ignation board. once the board knows there is a piolet and the system is safe the main valve will open igniting the burner trays.

I have an old gas heater when i go to light it the piolet light wont stay on when i turn the knob to make it hotter.


Old heaters that have a "standing" pilot light that burns all of the time use a device called a thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot and when heated by the pilot, produces a very small amount of electricity (approx 30 mV) which the heater interperets as proof that the pilot is burning and indicating that it is okay to turn the main burner on. The thermocouple is a part that wears out and when it fails causes the exact problem that you are describing.
