Propane pilot light on water heater will not light

When the gas is turned on the pilot light will not light. The gas is working because the stove will light and the pilot on the stove will light. Professional help is unavailable because it is in a remote area. Nearest plumber is over 100 miles away.

    the stove and water heater are seperate. The only reason I mentioned the stove is because they are both gas. The fact that the stove will light . The pilot on the water heater will not light at all ever.
    Thanks

    My 2000 Keystone Cabana Hot Water Heater Pilot Will Not Light. The Stove Is Gas And Works So The LP Is Moving Through The System. I Removed The Fitting To See If Maybe The Orifice Was Plugged, It's Not. I Have Not Removed The Gas Line Into The Thermal Controller So I'm Not Sure If Fuel Is Going Into It, I'm Just Assuming. I Hear Many Saying Replace The Thermal Coupler. Will This Part Keep The Fuel From Passing Into The Pilot Chamber?

I don't understand, you say the pilot won't light but it does light when the stove lights?

Walk me through the procedure step by step.

    Oh, I get it now. Replace the thermocouple. You should be able to get one at a good hardware store or on-line.

I have a Waterford gas log stove. The pilot light is on and working. The stove won't turn on either when it's called on by the thermostat or when I switch the stove to "on".


You have a bad thermostat is what sounds like when you turn it on yourself there is a electric valve that opens to make work and it is not getting the signal or you have something in the line feeding it.

You have to purge the air from the lines.
At the water heater, take a wrench and loosen the gas line until you smell gas coming from the line. Then tighten the gas line. Check it for leaks with a soapy water solution. Let the gas smell clear, then light the pilot on the heater.

My propane heater not working right


This could be due to insufficient gas pressure. When you turn the knob to get the flames going, observe the pilot light. If it gets smaller, or burns with less intensity, it means you have insufficient gas pressure. If the pilot light gets smaller, the temperature of the thermocouple drops, so the electrical current produced by the thermocouple also drops. The stove interprets this drop in voltage to mean that the oxygen level in the room has dropped (because a drop in oxygen content likewise would cause the pilot light to get smaller).
