Look around the burners. Look for a little round cylinder with some wires attached and a small knob that you push in to reset. There will be more than 1 of these. You should also try to figure out why it is tripping.

What do I need to do to lite my heater after a summer rest?


How to Light a Furnace Pilot Light Here, we'll explain the basic steps for re-lighting the pilot light of a gas furnace.

#1: Locate the Instructions Label on Your Furnace

Every furnace should have a label on it that tells you how to light a furnace. Sometimes, however, the printing may be small or the furnace area may be dark. In these cases, the label may be difficult to read. Keeping the following instructions near your furnace or in another safe spot where they can be located easily will make the task much easier.

#2: Find Pilot Light and Components

Near the bottom of your furnace is a switch that normally says "Pilot," "On" and "Off." Find this switch and turn it to the "Off" position. Wait at least five minutes. This is important because it gives the gas time to dissipate, which is necessary to avoid possibly starting a fire. While you are waiting, take note of the location of the reset button, which should be near the dial you just turned to "Off."

#3: Re-Light the Pilot Light

Once the gas has had time to dissipate, turn the knob to "Pilot." Then, hold down the "Reset" button and bring the flame of a long lighter close to the pilot light opening. This should light the furnace pilot light. Once you are sure the pilot light is on, release your pressure on the reset button.

My pilot stays on on my propane furnace but will not light up


The Little Giant units use a Unitrol gas valve very similar to a water heater in the home. #1,urn the Unitrol gas valve to the "PILOT" position to ignite the pilot. Depress the plunger and hold it down then push the spark igniter button until you can see the pilot flame ignite.
You have a lit pilot so this is not a problem for you.
The pilot light stays on continuously by design.
Once the pilot flame is established, you then turn the on/off/pilot valve to the "ON" position and set the thermostat to the desired temperature range., it should then fire its main burner until the desired temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached, the main burner will shut off and the heater will go into a standby mode with the pilot flame still burning.
If you have turned the pilot valve to on and set the temperature high, it should come on, if not a new gas valve is required, they can be very difficult to replace due to rust.and most cases require a new unit,

Colman gas furnace wont light


Is it natural gas or propane? If propane, make sure you are not out of gas. Does it have electronic ignition or a manual pilot? if pilot, make sure the pilot flame is still lit and the control knob is turned to the "On" position. If it has electronic ignition, shut off the power to the furnace and then turn it back on and see if resets and lights.

Per landlord, need to light pilot


You would smell the gas, so you're probably ok. Lighting the pilot is not too tough, first you have to get the cover off the furnace. Inside you will see pipes and parts. Hopefully on the cover, inside or out, or somewhere inside the furnace will be instructions.
If not, find a knob that has 'pilot', 'off' and 'run' or something like that. It will probably be in 'run'.
Usually, you have to push the knob down and turn it to get it to the 'pilot' spot. When you do, have something to lite the pilot, which will be inside the furnace more, near the burner. The burner looks like a gas stove or oven burner. The pilot place will be at the end of a small tube.
With the button held down, wave something burning around the burner area. especially at what may be the pilot. The pilot doesn't put out much gas, so don't worry about things blowing up.
Once the pilot has lit, hold the button down for a while, at least a minute. Then you should be able to release the button and the pilot should stay on. If it doesn't, you need a serviceman to come. Let the landlord know the pilot would not stay lit.
If the pilot stays lit, move the knob to 'run' or such, and the furnace should lite, if the thermostat is set higher than room temp. If it has been off, and the room is cool, it should lite.
If the furnace doesn't come on, let the landlord know.
Most landlords have service people for this, it was my job for a long time. Lighting pilots was a common chore for me. If you can, have the landlord send one out to show you how to do it.
As you see, it's not all tough, but it's not all easy, either.

Pilot won't stay lit on furnace


Is that pilot automatic? If so then a quick easy fix for this is to located the sensor and replace it or clean it up with sand paper. After ignition the control is looking for verification of ignition from that sensor. How to videos

I have an amana furnace and it will not kick on. When the switch is turned on the furnace will try to run but won't warm up and blow. Does it have a pilot light?? or a reset button??


Try this----turn furnace off at stat and unplug furnace for 10 minutes. Plug it back in, the combustion and blower motor may both kick on for 2 minutes or so or not. Turn t-stat to heat and turn up stat to highest setting. Hurry out to furnace and you should hear the combustion motor(little motor piped to flue) kick on, then wait for a "click" next you should see a glow from the igniton element, then another click, next will be the gas valve opening. If no ignition, it will try 3 times and then lock ur *** out, and just turn on the blower just as a precaution. If you dont see the glow plug glowing after the first click, replace the $20 glow plug and you should be good to go. The glow plugs crack, and this is what breaks the connection. If you gas valve has a knob, and says pilot----turn the valve to pilot, push down on the knob, light the pilot and hold down knob for 2 minutes to heat up flame sensor. Make sure the t-stat is all the way down or off. After 2 minutes of holding pilot knob down, let go and your pilot should be still lit, if it is, then turn gas valve to ON and then turn t-stat up to kick on furnace. If ur pilot doesn't stay lit, get a new thermal couple and replace it-$12 bucks. Good luck and let me know how it went. azeddysac@yahoo.com

Can't find instructions on lennox gf 8 series furnace


Does it have a standing pilot light? On new units, there is an igniter and not a pilot. But if you have a standing pilot, you will move the gas valve to "pilot" and push down the red button while holding a flame under the pilot located by one of the jets. Once it lights continue to hold the button down for a minute or so and then release the button. The pilot should stay lit. Then turn the dial to the on position. That's it.......... If the pilot won't stay lit then the thermocouple is bad and needs to be replaced.

Lighting the pilot light


The steps involved can vary slightly depending on your furnace model and pilot valve type, so if possible try and find the instructions inside the furnace door cover or in the instruction manual. This is for a gas fired furnace, but applies to any gas-fueled appliance including water heater. Two of the most common types of pilot valve body assemblies either have a red reset button and a gas valve or no reset button and a valve knob that can be depressed. But whichever type you've got, if you have an older model furnace with a standing pilot (flame is lit all the time) then this is the basic procedure.
  • Turn you thermostat to 80 degrees or to a setting that will demand heat. Make sure the thermostat is in "Heat" mode.
  • Go to the furnace and find the pilot valve. The pilot valve body is a box shaped device into which the main gas line will run and is located near the gas burners. It will usually have a gas **** or valve knob that reads "On, "Pilot" and "Off." Locate this gas **** or knob.
  • Turn the knob or gas **** to the "Off" position and wait about 3 minutes for any residual gas to clear away.
  • Find the pilot. It's located near the gas burner tube assembly in the furnace.
  • Get your match or lighter ready. Sometimes the pilot is hard to reach. If possible, try and use a long fireplace match when you light it. If you don't have a fireplace match then a butane BBQ grill lighter works well too. If you don't have that, then you can fasten a match to the end of a stick when you light the pilot
  • If you have a pilot with a red Reset button, turn the gas valve from "Off," to "Pilot."
  • If you have a pilot with no red button, turn the knob from "Off" to "Pilot."
  • Place the lit match or ignited lighter tip at the pilot and depress and hold the button or depress the knob as appropriate. Depress the button or knob for about 30 seconds. This maintains gas flow to the pilot until the thermocouple gets hot enough to open the main gas valve.
  • Once the pilot stays lit, slowly release the button or knob and turn the gas **** or knob from the "Pilot" position to the "On" position. This will ignite the burners and keep the flow of gas supplied as required for the burners as called for by the thermostat.
  • If the burners fail to ignite then it may be because the thermocouple did not get hot enough to open the gas valve. Wait a few minutes and then repeat the above procedure. This time hold the red reset button or depress the knob for about 45-60 seconds.
  • Once the main furnace burners ignite, adjust the thermostat to the desired setting.
  • If you've followed the previous steps on lighting the pilot and it still does not light after, or will not stay lit, then you probably have a problem with the thermocouple or an adjustment needs to be made to the pilot. You'll need a furnace service technician to replace or repair these parts. You may find that the pilot lights, but it is an anemic looking flame. That's a different problem we'll look at in the next section.
  • If the pilot lights but the flame is a weak yellow flame, it will not get hot enough to heat the thermocouple to its set point allowing the gas valve to open.
    A natural gas flame should be a bright blue with the tip of the flame having just a tinge of yellow. A propane flame should have a bluish green flame with a tinge of yellow at the tip. The flame should be strong enough to hit the thermocouple tip about 1/2 inch from the tip end. If the flame is weak or shaky looking, check to see that a breeze or draft is not blowing on it. Adjusting the Flame
    There is usually a small screw on the pilot valve body that will adjust the flame. You may have to refer to the manufacturer's instructions to find the screw. Turn the screw as needed to adjust the flame throw. Yellow Flame
    A yellow flame is caused by lack of air and incomplete combustion. It can be caused by a dirty pilot tube tip. Split Flame
    This is caused by dirt in the pilot tube. Take a needle or small nail and gently clean the tube. Flickering or Wavering Flame
    A flame that flickers is usually caused by a draft.
