Hello,
Is this the pilot for the oven or stovetop burners, or both? Pilot flames can be adjusted to increase or decrease the size. It's probably dirty which is causing it to go out. Use a small flat screwdriver to scrape the pilot tip clean or a small needle to poke it, if necessary. Then use the screwdriver to adjust the pilot flame as needed. If you follow the small aluminum tubing from the pilot, you will find a small screw on the line to adjust it. If you need more help, just let me know. Obviously, there can be other issues, but this is the most common problem. Douglas

The pilot light is not on how do I switch it back on?


Turn the gas valve off all the way, make sure you don't smell gas and wait an hour or so. The gas valve should have an on setting and a pilot light setting. Turn the gas valve to pilot light and you should be able to push the vlv button down. At this time hold a flame to the pilot light outlet. It should light and when it does keep holding the vlv down for about 15-30 seconds. IF you let off of the vlv and the pilot light goes out, you may have a faulty sensor. IF it stays lit when you let off the vlv. back your face away from the unit and turn the valve to the on position. Operate the cooker as usual making sure that the burner does indeed light when called for. If the pilot light will not stay lit, make sure the sensor is enveloped in the flame. If the flame is too small you may have to change or clean the pilot flame outlet. To replace the sensor, remove it from the mount by the pilot outlet(once it has cooled) then follow it back to the control valve and remove it useing a line wrench. YOu should be able to get one at the nearest hardware store.

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

My charmglo stove ccn300tg lights but when turn it down fast will go out slow it will stay light


You could have dust in the pilot safety. I recently tuned up a vent free heater and posted some pictures. Over the summer months dust weakens the pilot light. So it will stay lit for only a short time. I flush the pilot with a little rust buster and let it dry and then vacuum the bricks while waiting on it to dry. I don't care how new these are if they get dust in that pilot they fade out. Vent Free tuneup

Check the following: Pilot orifice or line partially clogged --- remove and clean.
use a fine wire or drill bit to do this.
Gas control valve going bad --- replace gas valve. Gas valves cannot be repaired.

Older style Rinnai gas heater pilot light flame very large more yellow then blue..approx stays at 4inches even once burners are lit. Heater has 6 small burners and a brown cover.


not a problem. however, if you want to shrink it down... it's hard to say just what your gas valve is like. There should be 2 spots on it for adjustments, the larger slot (should be covered by a brass plug) adjusts the main burner output, the smaller adjusts pilot output. crank it down and watch the pilot shrink, but in this situation bigger is better. the pilot creates an electrical signal that opens the gas valve, you don't want that signal to be too weak.
It would be wise to clean the pilot supply, to have a cleaner flame. pressurized air does well with out having to remove it.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

I don`t know what style or brand you have,but most likely the thermocouple is bad,change it,and make sure the thermocouple is in the flame of the pilot light.

I HAVE MODEL GP30 WALL HEATER. I CAN LITE PILOT BUT WHEN I TURN CONTROL KNOB UP PILOT GOES OUT AND DOES NOT LITE HEATER


The thermocoupler is bad.Replace it,or if you can adjust it to where the thermocoupler is in the pilot flame.You know you have to hold the knob down for about 30 seconds or a minute,don`t you?If the flame will not touch the thermocoupler,it will not stay lit.You can cut a piece of copper tubing,or steel tubing to slidde over the old thermocoupler to make contact with the pilot flame,and it will work,if the thermocoupler is not in to bad of shape.
