Sounds like the thermocouple that senses the pilot is bad. You should replace it.

Pilot light blew out by a fan..I turned the control off..How do I Ignite Please


First locate where to light pilot. You can do this by following thin aluminum colored tubing from control valve to inside heater.In general on top of your gas control valve is a knob. Turn indicator of this knob to pilot and depress knob. This will start gas flow to pilot at end of thin tube. Hold this knob in the depressed position and light pilot. DO NOT release knob for 30 -45 seconds. Then release knob and pilot will remain lit. Then turn knob to on position. If pilot will not stay lit you may need a new thermo coupler, which senses heat from flame to keep pilot gas flow open.
Good luck

We have a Rinnai R82VF LPG room heater. When you press the gas button and then turn the temperature control knob to IGN, it lights. When you release the temperature control knob, it springs back to OFF and...


Part of the problem may be, that when you turn the control knob to ignition, you're not holding it in long enough for Thermocouple or Thermopile to thoroughly heat up after the pilot lights. You should hold the bottom down for 30 seconds to a minute, to allow it to heat up. Then, when you slowly release it. If the pilot remains lit, turn the knob to the desire position.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, the Thermocouple or Thermopile (aka Pilot Generator) will need to be replaced.

Hope this helped you. Cheers

I accidently turned the pilot off and I can't get it to turn on Williams Model# 2001622


Turn the control valve to the PILOT position and push down and hold it in. Press the Ignitor Button and continue to hold the Control knob down, once the pilot lights. Wait one minute, release the Control Knob and if the pilot remains burning, turn the Control Knob counterclockwise to the ON Position. If after the burners light and burn for a few minutes, you can turn the Control Knob back (Clockwise) to the Pilot position (if you don't want the heater to come on automatically) and the pilot should remain lit.

Hope this helped to get you back up and burning.

Lennox G8Q3-90-4 will not ignite the pilot. The


While holding down the control knob for the pilot, you either have to use the pilot ignitor or match light the pilot. Then old the knob in for 60 seconds, before releasing it. If the pilot remains lit, turn the control knob to ON. If the pilot does not remain lit, the Thermocouple or Thermopile may need to be replaced.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

The main control knob will have a "Pilot" position. Set it there, then light the pilot. You may have to press and hold the control knob to do that. There may be a striker button that will relight the pilot while you're holding the control knob or you may need to use a match or a candle lighter.

Once the pilot is on for 30 seconds or so, it will remain lit when you release pressure on the control knob.

Light pilot light


Turn control knob to "Pilot" and press it down. While holding knob down, light pilot with a match. After pilot lights continue to hold knob down for about one minute. When you release the knob the pilot should remain on. If it goes out then the thermocouple needs to be replaced.

Torpedo heater lights and runs with control kknob pressed in but shuts down when control knob is released.


Change the thermocouple. The thermocouple scenes the heat from the pilot lit and signals the main gas valve to remain in the ready condition. The main valve will not receive the signal if the thermocouple is bad and will revert to the safety shut down when the control knob is released.
