Does the pilot light stay light? Or light then go back out? If it is doing that then it is the thermocoupler. looks like a wire that is in the flame of the pilot light. Other than the sparker. That is what dectects that there is fire in the pilot light before it starts the gas. Safety thing. So if that isnt detecting fire, then it will never let the gasvalve open up, Try taking some steel wool or real fine sandpaper and clean up that sensor. The wire. It builds up a thin film on it from gas burning.

Brivis buffalo 85 main burner not coming on pilot light is on fan comes on ???

If the pilot is on the thermo couple is ok. Could possibly be a faulty temperature limiting switch, it may be stuck and just needs a spray of WD40 or similar product. Then again I could be completely wrong.

I just replaced the pilot generator on a jandy lite2 and the pilot stays on but the burner will not light. I am getting over 500 millivolts at the gas valve. Any ideas? Thanks

500 millivolts is good to fired that heater, the minimum is 250. disconnect the wires connect to the gas valve be very carefulland see if the pilot stay on, if stay on get a piece the solid copper wire and jump the gas valve where the wires from the safety switches were connected and see if the heater fired. but before that check everi wire and safety switches for resistem ,also you water pressure switch,but also for any loose connection .

the contractor is correct about having to high pressure in DE filter. it will prevent pressure switch from closing, therefor burners wont fire. However, the pilot issue is a diff problem. you most likely need a new pilot generator

Open up the union in the gas line and bleed all the air out. Once done the pilot should light in a short amount of time. If it still will not light, remove the pilot and inspect it for spider nests in the head or regulating cap.

Pilot light is lit, burner will not come on

The thermocouple must be in the flame of the pilot and producing a signal to the gas valve. Also check thermostat
