Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Can't get the gas valve to release fuel when trying to light the pilot. took apart the line and there is gas, but the valve won't release when I press the plunger in. coleman trailer furnace was turned off by occupant in the spring at the gas valve. When I took apart the flare fitting on the copper gas line, turned on the valve, all these little metal shavings flew out at me with the pressure of the gas. Weird. I wonder if the gas valve is plugged with this material and just needs to be replaced. I took off the aluminum feed tube to the pilot and checked outlet with no pressure when plunger is activated. Any help in solving my mystery would be appreciated.

Possible bad gas valve. When a gas valve fails it fails in the closed position. If you cannot get gas out of the pilot light chances are gas valve is bad. Call a service tech for freee estimate. Rus

You will not be able to blow through a gas valve when it's disconnected. You may have air in the lines which would cause the pilot to go off when knob is released if not held in long enough. Try lighting again. Once the pilot lights - hold knob in for 5 minutes then release. Try twice, if pilot will not stay lit it's probably the thermal coupler. (metal prong right next to flame of pilot burner.)

Empire wall furnace pushing down the pilot button trying to light the pilot found too much gas flowing


Is the button on the gas valve or a red button in the line to the pilot assembly? If its in the line, there is a regulator upstream of the button. If the gas is coming from the gas valve, there is a small screw covered hole in line with the pilot line in the gas valve. If neither of these apply, you may need to replace the orifice in the pilot assembly. Let me know how it goes.

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

Furnace Pilot Light Won't Stay Lit


Here is something similar that happened to me. I went through the same steps you went through and upon closer inspection, I found a spider had made a web inside the supply line only letting a small trickle of gas through. Have you verified there is nothing blocking the line?

How do I change the pilot light as it is not working anymore.


It won't be the pilot light, It will be the gas valve control, if the pilot light actually lights but the burners won't light,, then you need to check the thermocouple , its that little round thing that sits inside the flame of the pilot light, and has (usually) a copper tube that runs back to the actual gas valve, If its gone bad, the signal to the gas valve is lost so the gas never gets released so nothing lights

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

Cozy heater


That piece that fell out is probably the pilot orifice. It goes on the end of the pilot gas line when you screw it into the pilot assembly. Don't try to light the heater without the orifice. If your thermocouple is good and the pilot flame is set properly, the control valve could be bad. Be sure to hold the knob down for 60 seconds before releasing it.

Wather heater will not ignite


You'll probably need to ignite the pilot light before it will allow gas to flow for the heater to ignite and warm the water.. Most controls have a Pilot position that you switch it to , than using a long match .. locate the pilot light in the access opening at the bottom and get the pilot light to stay lit.. Hope that helps...
