Problem I can get the pilot to light but when I turn it up it lights for about 30 seconds and goes out. We have not had this problem before. It just started tonight. I checked the propane and we have plenty.

Hello; your pilot tube is dirty, disassemble the pilot from the unit and blow it out very well and make sure to clean the thermocouple as well. it doesn't take much dirt to restrict the flow af gas.

U can light the pilot lite,turn 2 ON it will stay lit 4 a couple of minutes then go out? If u turn the knob 2 low,med. It goes out pretty much immediately?I changed the thermocouple,blew the lines ou


Is the thermocouple secure, routed properly, no kinks, no sharp bends? Is the end of the unit properly aligned so the hottest part of the pilot flame is hitting the unit. Did you hold pilot switch in the light position for at least 30 seconds, before you set the gas valve to on? If all above OK, try this. Light the pilot using barbeque lighter once it lights keep the lighter on the t-couple for 30 seconds, then set the valve to ON and keep the lighter where it is. Once the main burner lights, remove the lighter. If the burner and pilot go off, your gas valve is bad.

The pilot light is out on my valor gas fire place. When I go to light it the flame comes on but if you let the button up to turn on the burners it goes out.


Keep the pilot gas control pressed down for 30 seconds to a minute after it lights to allow the thermopile in the pilot light to heat up. If you are already doing this the thermopile needs replacing

Hold the button for 30 seconds, then release. If it goes out right away, you have a bad thermocouple. If the unit does not sense that the pilot light is lit, all of the gas is shut off, including the pilot light.

Pilot wont light


If the pilot light goes out when you release the primer,then the thermocouple is bad.You can try to adjust the thermocouple,if it can be.It needs to be in the pilot flame.If the thermocouple is not in the flame,it will not stay lit.If you can not get the pilot to light at all,with the primer pushed down,then replace the regulator.To light the pilot light,you need to turn the dial to pilot.Then press the primer button down and hold it.The primer is either built into the turn knob,or it is a res button.Hold the primer down,and light the pilot,continue holding the primer down for at least 40 seconds.Then release the primer slowly,and if the pilot light starts to get weak,and try to go out,then push back down,and hold 30 seconds more.After the pilot stays lit,turn the knob to furnace or low,or whatever the directions say.

Heater goes out after 10 to 30 seconds.


sounds like a blocked pilot when you turn on the main gas takes the gas away from the pilot and goes out
