I have never owned the item you are having a problem with, but I have used and owned many gas items with a pilot light.

From what I have learnt over the years, I would not worry about the pilot light growing when the unit is turned on, or the noise. However, if the pilot light is staying on for more than a minute (Will burn excess gas in the pipes) or so after you shut the gas off, then your regulator could be leaking. If this is the case, then you should contact your local propane dealer and ask them to replace the regulator.

How do I troubleshoot my fryer when I cannot get it to start?


In order to turn the knob to the pilot position you need to push the knob in slightly and then turn. Once the pilot position on the knob is lined up with the indicator on the valve, you can push it in and gas will flow to the pilot assembly.

Colman gas furnace wont light


Is it natural gas or propane? If propane, make sure you are not out of gas. Does it have electronic ignition or a manual pilot? if pilot, make sure the pilot flame is still lit and the control knob is turned to the "On" position. If it has electronic ignition, shut off the power to the furnace and then turn it back on and see if resets and lights.

Hello, i lite the pillot and and start up fire so its working and some time during the day the pillot goes out?


If you have a standing pilot that wont stay lit and you have to keep relighting it, it can only be a couple of things that will do this.
1. Try tighting the thermocouple at the gas valve. (this is a thin copper line that goes from the gas valve and goes to the pilot light.)
2. Make sure that the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot light flame.
3. Make sure that the thermocouple is clean.

if you have done these and it still doesnt stay lit, buy a new thermocouple.

First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

We have an older (22 years?) 'Insta-Flame (model HE30 TN) natural gas fireplace insert. The pilot light is out, as we painted to inside of the firebox. The instructions show to 1) turn the dial to 'off'',...


On some gas valves the pilot setting is on the same dial as pilot on and on .on others the pilot light has aseperate button on right side of control dial. If yours has this there will be a cut out on cotrol dial that must be aligned with button to allow it to be depressed to light pilot. If yours has this align control dial cutout with pilot button,depress button and light pilot,hold for about one min. and slowly release,if pilot light stays lit,turn down thermostat and rotate control dial normally to right . There should be arrows or marks on dial and gas valve to line up. If pilot light stays lit turn dial to next position and check to see that pilot is still lit. This should be on position, turn up thermostat and burner should light. If your dial has pilot light setting on it then rotate dial to each position,try to depress dial and when you have right one dial will depress allowing you to light pilot. Follow same procedure as above and you should be in business. Hope this helps.Thank you

How do i light this gas grill, it is a charbroil quantum....it was borrowed from our friend, who is now not picking up the phone...


Checklist:
1-Make sure propane tank has propane in it.
2-Turn regulator (valve attached to propane tank) on.
3-Turn burner dials on, usually there is a "light" or "ignite" position to let the most gas flow to start. If there isn't, just turn it/them to high.
4-Listen for the hissing, if you hear some hissing from the grill, it has gas flow.
5-Turn the dials back off and give 3-5 minutes for gas to clear.
6-Turn dials back on and hit the igniter button.
That should do it! :)

Pilot light will not light in the first place


Thermocouple only has an effect after the pilot is lit to keep it lit. either the pilot supply line is clogged the valve is bad or the regulator is failed shut. Try moving the regulator to your gass grill or vice versa to eliminate the regulator. Blow out the pilot tube with compressed air. If these dont work it's the valve.

After a few minutes of burner heating the water, gas shuts off.


A couple of things to check:

If possible, remove the pilot gas assembly and clean the gas jet and thermocouple - they can get carboned up and stop working properly. Make sure the pilot flame and deflector is aimed properly and making the thermocouple glow red hot. If the problem persists, you may want to replace the thermocouple and also check the propane regulator.

Can not get the bricks to light on my empire corcho


I have the same htr in Mich. & have worked on gas htrs.for many years.
Does the flame go out when you let go of the button to lite it?
If it does, then the thermocouple is bad.

If the flame stays on, but goes out when you turn the dial,
the gas regulator is bad.

Probably a little more expensive to buy new then to fix it.

Pilot goes out!!


My manual shows three possibilities:  1) Insufficient fresh air available for combustion, so ODS kicks off gas flow 2) Low gas line pressure (should be between 11 and 14") or 3) ODS/Pilot is partially clogged.  Toll free number for ProCom is 877-886-5989.
