One possible reason could be a bad thermocouple. This is a rod shaped device that is close to the flame. It's function is to turn off the gas if the pilot light goes out. Heat from the flame operates the thermocouple. When the flame goes out the thermocouple cools off and shuts off the gas. When one goes bad it will not let you light the pilot. Here's a picture of what one looks like. There's a bracket that holds it in place.Pilot light won't ignite. - f023fa6.jpg

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

Pilot won't stay on


Burners don't have anything to do with the problem of pilot not lighting. Is the problem that flame will not 'stay' lit? Or you can't even get a flame to ignite? If former: possible bad pilot generator or bad gas valve. If latter, possible bad gas valve or no fuel to ignite.

GE furnace pilot won't ignite


Check for 24 volts at the pilot valve on the gas valve, if there is voltage, take an amp reading, if you get amperage it's trying to work, see if pilot orifice is obstructed by webs etc. very common to see this.

Pilot will light after 30 seconds when you try to move knob to on position the pilot goes out and heater won't ignite.


You need to replace the thermocouple.
When you light the pilot it is supose to heat the thermocouple.
the thermocouple produces a small electric current which allows the gas valve to open and keep the pilot going. and allowing the main burner to come on.

Pilot light wont ignite on patio heater


It may be that your cylinder is malfunctioning, cylinder has a leak, or the pilot is clogged. Please see steps below to troubleshoot. Note:Regular maintenance is critical to the successful operation of your patio heater.
  1. Is the cylinder valve closed? If so, open the cylinder valve but not fully.
  2. Check to see if you can light it manually. If the unit lights manually but not with igniter, service or replace igniter switch.
  3. Ensure that there is no air in the gas line. Open the gas line and bleed it (pressing control knob in) for not more than 1 - 2 minutes or until you smell gas.
  4. There may be a blockage in the orifice or pilot tube? Bugs and spiders get into the pilot assembly, venturi tube and burner ports causing the unit to either not light or poor performance.
  5. Is the regulator hose pinched or kinked?
  6. Cleaning the pilot assembly.
  7. If the piezo igniter won't spark to light the pilot, check the wiring to the igniter, It may simply have lost it's ground. Slide the wire off the igniter prong (looks like a thick needle) on the pilot assembly and then push it back on. That usually will reestablish the ground.
If you continue to have problems with the heater, contact Blue Rhino (the manufacturer) Customer Care 800-762-1142.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.
