Pilot is lighting, but unit won't light

Pilot seems to light, i hold the Pilot knob in for 30 seconds per instructions but the unit doesn't ignite, could it be my regulator not letting enough gas in OR is there something in the top unit that could be the culprit.

If the pilot light stays light after you relaease the knob, but your burner will not light then it most likely is the tip switch. Install a jumper wire across the tip switch connections and your burner should light, do not operate with jumper wire as this is bypassing the saftey feature.

How to relight pilot on boiler


Every boiler will have manufacturer lighting instructions on the unit, so be sure to read it thoroughly and turn off the gas for 5 min to make sure there is no gas build-up around the boiler. Some have electronic ignition and some require a manual lighting of the pilot. If the control knob has only ON-OFF, it has electronic ignition. Simply turn off the power (at the electric switch on the boiler or at the breaker box) and then turn it back on and it will relight itself when heat is needed) If it has ON-OFF-PILOT, you will have to light it manually. You will have to turn the gas valve knob so the arrow is pointing at the word "pilot" and depress the knob, while lighting the pilot with a lighter or match. Continue to hold the knob down after the pilot is lit for about 30-45 seconds to allow the thermocouple to heat up. If you release the pilot knob and the pilot stays lit, you can turn the knob to the "ON" position and the burner will light. Please be careful. if you are not sure what you are doing, call a professional.

How do I find and light the pilot?


Linda, it is not easy to explain I would go to the Goodman website and see if you can down load a manual for your unit or maybe see a blown up picture of it showing the pilot
once you can see the parts and know where they are then we can help a little maybe
You have to find the gas valve on it is a knob that should have on off pilot you would turn that to pilot and push down hold for about 30 seconds
Before doing that you will see three tubes coming from the valve one big one and two smaller ones follow the bigger of the two small ones
At the very end of that is the pilot light (it will not be burning ) After holding the pilot knob down fro 30 sec place a flame/match near that opening at the end of the tube you followed a small flame should start ,this may take several attempts to light
If this is an electric type you would do the same thing only you should see a button that says push or igniter so you would hold the pilot button down and then push and release push and release igniter until the pilot lights once it comes on and burns for a few seconds release the pilot knob and turn the knob to on
You then should get a flame if the thermostat is set
If you have never done this see if you can get a neighbor or someone to show you how

We have a Rinnai R82VF LPG room heater. When you press the gas button and then turn the temperature control knob to IGN, it lights. When you release the temperature control knob, it springs back to OFF and...


Part of the problem may be, that when you turn the control knob to ignition, you're not holding it in long enough for Thermocouple or Thermopile to thoroughly heat up after the pilot lights. You should hold the bottom down for 30 seconds to a minute, to allow it to heat up. Then, when you slowly release it. If the pilot remains lit, turn the knob to the desire position.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, the Thermocouple or Thermopile (aka Pilot Generator) will need to be replaced.

Hope this helped you. Cheers

Have a dayton 3F405D propane greenhouse heater don't know where to light the pilot light.


Find where the gas line connects to the gas valve on the back of the heater, from the gas valve, follow a small aluminum tube going into the back of the heater. There may be a removable door to access the pilot assembly. If there is no aluminum tube, the unit has electronic ignition and no pilot lite. Turn the gas knob to off, then to pilot. Hold the gas valve in and with a long match or gas grill lighter, light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob in for about 30 seconds. After that, release the knob and check to make sure the pilot stays lit. If so, rotate the knob to ON. The thermostat will kick the burners on.

We have a fairly new heater. went to turn on the pilot light and it won't ignite. what do you think is wrong? gas has been turned on before igniting


Sometimes it takes a few seconds for gas to reach the pilot. When you place the thermostat knob/gas control in the pilot position you must then depress it (push it down and hold it down). Wait a few seconds while holding it down, then press the ignitor button with your other hand while continuing to keep the thermostat knob depressed. You may have to hold the knob down and press the ignitor several times. You should see a spark at the pilot if the ignitor is working properly. Continue to hold the knob down for 30 seconds after the pilot lights, then release the knob, it will pop up & you can then rotate it to lo/med/hi and the heater will come on.,
