How do I start a 1973 komfort travel trailer water heater?


See if big red knob has a PILOT or LIGHT setting and put it on that setting. Next look at knob on bottom-- it should have a circle cutout on it that needs to align with the pilot push button. The cutout lets the button be pushed in. While holding button in---light the pilot and keep holding the button in for about 3 minutes. If everything is working right with the water heater, after 3 minutes or so you can let go of the button and the pilot should remain on. If it stays on. turn the smaller button to the run or heat position and the big burner should come on. Then set the big heat control knob for the heat setting you want.

What is a thermocouple and what does it look like


A thermocouple is a bi-metallic junction that when heated gives an small electric output. The tip of it sits where the pilot light is ( and it is a copper tube going to the gas valve) and the pilot light heats it up. It creates electricity after it heats up (which is why you have to hold the pilot light knob down when lighting) and opens the gas valve to keep pilot light lit after you let the pilot knob go back up. When it stays lit without having to hold it down, (make sure the thermostat is set low so it doesn't light the burner while you have your hand down there) then you turn the pilot knob to on. It should stay on and you can set the furnace to heat and raise the temperature where you want.

I will soon be bringing home a bearded dragon and I was wondering if someone could help me determine the proper lighting and heating requirements to keep it healthy.


A bearded dragon's natural habitat is the Australian Outback - keeping this in mind, your habitat should closely reflect that of its natural one. The temperature should be set between 80-84F, with basking areas ranging from 95-100F. I recommend using either an incandescent light bulb or an under tank heating pad.

How to light pilot on Dayton furnace and then start furnace


If this is a standing pilot system, turn the gas valve to pilot position. push in the knob & hold while lighting pilot...keeping holding knob down for a minute... this will pick & hold the gas valve. Let go of the knob & see if the pilot stays lit, if it does, then turn the knob to on position & the furnace should start if there is a call for heat from the thermostat

I have a Heat Dragon (rlp50) and it won't stay lit unless the control knob is pushed in all the time.


Sounds like the thermocouple is bad. Pushing the knob bypasses the thermocouple and permits ignition once you let go after thirty seconds it is supposed to stay lit. This is common with heaters.

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

I have to hold the knob in to keep it running, and sometimes you do not have to push in the knob at all, it will work when turning unit from off to low and then using push igniter the unit will run without...


Hello
This sounds like a bad thermocouple,a small copper tube running from the pilot lite area to the gas valve which feels heat and keeps the gas valve open for gas to flow through,when calling for heat and also keeps the pilot light lit.

Try replacing it,br sure all gas is off prior to doing any work to unit.

Hope this helps.

The rotisserie heating element does not fire up on my barbeques galore grand turbo BBQ. Electric ignite seems to be working, but smell gas no heat


The rotisserie should have a thermocouple near the burner. If you have to hold in the knob, or push a red button to get the gas to flow to the burner, and the electrode sparks and the burner lights, you have to continue to hold the knob or button in until the thermocouple gets hot enough to keep the gas on. If the burner keeps going out, you could have a bad thermocouple.
