SOURCE: how do i light the pilot on a ward floor furnace

You need a very kong wire and a kitchen match. Turn the knob on top to pilot and push down have your flame already down thru the pilot hole at the bottom of the inside of furnace. Hold for a few seconds and release knob trun to heat. This unit works on a power pile systm and generates milivolts from the flame. Rus

SOURCE: floor furnace

That is the control for the main gas valve. These old ones have a gas valve separate from the pilot. Also the regulator is separate unit. You have to turn these controls with a long rod, right?

SOURCE: pilot wont stay lit installed new gas valve and new thermocouple

Is this a standing pilot furnace, or electronic igniton?

If standing pilot, does the heater use a fan to blow air through the heat exchanger?

If the answer to those questions is yes, then check that the pilot orifice is not partially plugged and that there is a strong pilot blowing against the thermocouple. If there is, replace the thermocouple. If not, check the orifice again, and check that the inlet screen to the gas valve is not filled with gas line trash.

If the the pilot flame is good and it continues to go out, the thermocouple magnet in the gas valve may be weak. Replace the gas valve as to get just the magnet and coil is not easy.

Reply back any questions you may have.

Where can we get a thermo coupler for a floor furnace Ward Model 570EDR.


Most floor furnaces use the millivolt gas valve and need a pilot generator to operate correctly. These generators are bit more than a standard thermocouple.

Ebay has one for less than $20

How do i relight my standing wall heater light, where is it?


There should be a removable panel on the bottom front. Remove this panel and you should see gas valve with two lines going into combustion chamber. The larger of the two will be for burner and the smaller to the pilot light. There may be lighting instructions on the inside of panel,or on front of burner compartment. If not look at gas valve and see if you can see where it is marked off pilot and on. Turn thermostat to lowest setting and gas valve to pilot ,locate pilot light and hold match to it while you depress pilot button . Pilot should light. If it does hold button depressed for 1 to 2 mins. Release pilot button and if pilot stays lit turn valve to on. Turn thermostat up to desired setting and see if burner comes on. If it does you should be done. Put cover back on. If pilot light does not stay lit or burner won't light I Would recommend you call a service tech as there are several things that could be wrong. Hope this helps you.Thanks

Wall furnace model # SFB50146B Thermal Coupler. Does it have 2 wires?


if the pilot light stays lit, but the burners don't kick on, it's a problem with the thermostat or thermostat wiring, or a problem with the valve inside the gas actuator
