Stadt Ducted Heater ignition problems

I follow the instructions on the heater, but the pilot will not light. Instructions lay out I must switch the house termostat to under room temperature, then turn the power to the machine off, then place knob to pilot and press, light up with a match, then wait with pilot on for 30 seconds. Though no gas seems to come out of the pilot and it does not ignite. Gas mains to heater is on and I cannot seem to work out what I am doing wrong.

    I placed it under airconditioners as heating was not there as an option. Sorry and thanks in advanced.

Could be a number of things
Sounds like it the gas valve. If the gas Valve isn't opening or is burnt out then no gas will flow through it.
Also it the pilot is blocked then you wont get and gas coming through to light it up.
I am forever replacing gas valves on the buffalo series units and have found this to be quite a common problem on older units.

Light pilot light


Many heaters have pilot flames can be relighted with a match or push button operation. Many employ safeguards to prevent unburnt fuel from accumulating in the space or allowing an unstable pilot flame from "proving".

Most appliances have instructions printed or embossed on or near the pilot, gas valve or protective cover. It is very important to closely follow these instructions for your safety and that of others in the area. If you are unable to locate the instructions or follow them and relight the pilot, you should contact the gas company for assistance. This can be in indication of an issue with fuel, thermocouple, gas valve, etc., and would require a service person to correct.

I have included a link to a video to light a gas heater - yours may be the same or similar:

GE (Rheem) SmartShield Water Heater. it rained on the hot water heater and now the pilot won't light. Any ideas?


Does it have an electric ignition? If so, remove the pilot light access panel, blow inside the chamber with a hair dryer. Do this until there is no more moisture inside. Then follow the lighting instructions. Try this even if it's a match start. Thanks and please rate.

You have gas water heater.
Probably a tank-type gas water heater.

The plumber can fix water heater.
If you want to fix water heater yourself, then more information is needed to narrow down scope of answer.
1) Add a comment for possible help.
Instructions for lighting the water heater appear on front of water heater. Do those instructions include lighting the pilot light?
Will the pilot light stay lit?
On side of tank is a label. Label shows Brand, type (LP or NG), and model number.
This information can help narrow the type of gas control valve, and point direction for troubleshoot.
Add a comment with this information for possible help.

2) Do-it-yourself: Open following link for do-it-yourself resources to help solve gas water heater problems:
Generally the instructions show how to clean water heater parts, check venting, and show different types of gas controls, plus links for pilot light problems and cleaning air intake.

Read the instructions on how to light the pilot but where I need to put the match I am not sure where to direct the flame to. I see the housing for the pilot but not where inside


You noted above it is a Coleman forced air Heater with a electronic ignition? You don't need a match to light the pilot, it lights automatic on a call for heat at the thermostat.If it does not light, then you have other problems. Let me know.
Good Luck,
