Pilot light is lit but mAinburner will not


If it is a standing pilot, the knob that you had to depress to get pilot gas to flow has to be turned to the 'on' position from the 'pilot' position before main gas will flow.

If is a "spark to pilot" ignition the knob has no 'pilot' position on the main gas valve and the problem is elsewhere. There are many variations of ignition sequence and a little more input from what you have would be helpful.

Have you tried cleaning the inside of the valve where the thermocouple enters? Often there will be corrosion there and it will not pass the tiny amount of voltage required to activate the safety feature.

Why will my hayward h 250 millivolt pool heater pilot light not stay lit


Looks like your pilot generator may have some corrosion on it. Follow the stainless steel tubing on the gas valve as it goes down to the burner area. At the end of this is the pilot assembly. If you can remove this so your able to work on it you will se a short metal rod that the pilot flame touches when lit. This generates current that keeps the gas flowing to the pilot to keep it lit. Take some sand paper and give it a light sand to remove any corrosion on it. Reassemble at put it together. You may also need to clean the pilot tube(stainless tube from valve). Small spiderwebs can reduce the flow to the pilot and cause this problem also

Heater pilot light will not stay lit after knob is released


99% of the time it is just dirt and dust in the pilot light. NOT a bad thermocouple! These units generate their own power through the pilot light and it has to burn perfectly. Turn off gas supply, remove the cover and the pilot light assembly, including disconnecting the tiny gas line from the gas valve. Blow compressed air in, around and through it to get dust out. Replace everything, use soap bubbles at gas fittings to leak test and light the pilot. I bet it stays lit.

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.

Leaking propane is red flag #1 and fire hazard.
Immediately update your insurance and then turn off gas.
If pilot is not staying lit, then gas leak can be cause of pilot problem since pressure on the line is reduced.
Other causes include bad gas control valve, air in the gas line, bad thermocouple, burner parts need cleaning, or all the above.
After fixing leak, replace thermocouple, clean combustion chamber and burner parts, and bleed gas line to remove air.
