Can't light pilot due to breeze coming out of unplugged gas wall heater

It sounds like you have a direct vent heater so you have to take off a pilot access cover to light the pilot. So what happens is the draft coming out of the cover is blowing out the match before you get it in the hole. The trick is to get the match or lighter in the hole quickly as possible so the pressure inside the heater will equalize and the match will stay lit. Then you should be able to lite it. Get it inside the hole fast and it will work. Don't forget to put the cover back over the pilot access or the draft may cause the pilot to go back out.

How do I light the heater please

That all depends on what type of heater it is. I'd need more information to give you a more accurate set of instructions, but....
if it's a gas heater...typically, 1. you turn the switch to the 'ignite' or 'light' position, and 2. set your flame, lighter, match, etc, to the pilot and remove it once the flame catches, 3. then adjust the knob knob to the desired setting.

Typically, kerosone heaters work essentially the same way. I hope this helps. :) if not, pleaqse feel free to provide me with more information and ill see what I can do.

I have a small propane reddy heater with an electric ignitor if power is out can i manually light it

Yes, you can. Use either a butane grill lighter or a long stick match. Make sure the control knob is in the "light" position and the wick is in the right position. Light the long stick match or butane grill lighter, press the control knob in and while holding it in, touch the flame of the match or butane grill lighter to the wick and the wick should ignite. Once it ignites, quickly remove the match without knocking the tip off into the heater.

My coleman 5033-700 does not have a ignite button, so how do i light it?

Turn the knob to the light position, light the heater with one of those long bic lighters or a match, turn the knob back to the run position. Takes a little while for the catalytic mat to fully light up.

Hi there i recently had another gas appliance installed and the gas was turned off while this work was done, so my hot water service pilot light went out. the guys who did this work didn't relight the...

First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

Is it possible to manually ignite a corona 22dk kerosene heater safely with a butane lighter? the battery operated igniter is not working with new batteries installed.

I just use a match. Turn the setting dial to High. Open the little door in front. The one with glass in it. Light the match. Push the pedal down that you normally use to start it with the battery starter. Put the match into the heater and touch it to the wick. With just a regular match, I can reach in far enough to light the wick. When you have a complete ring of fire, lower the pedal slowly and close the door. It will smoke briefly and then burn. After 15 minutes lower the wick till the flame is smaller and whiter.

Pilot lighting

1) Open the door on the bottom of the tank to show the burner. 2) Turn the valve to "pilot" and depress. 3) Light the match, (best if you have a candle/grill lighter), and follow the skinny copper tube from the valve to the burner inside (this is called the thermocoupler). At the end of it, you will see the pilot. 4) Once pilot is lit, keep valve depressed for a minute (this warms the thermocoupler, thus sending a signal to the valve saying the pilot is lit). 5) Let go of the pilot button (usually red). 6) If pilot stays on, put the door(s) back on and turn the valve to "on". You will hear/see the gas ignite when complete. Good luck!

I have a remington 30,000 btu propane air heater that ive used 3 times in 3 wont stay running unless i hold the fuel switch all the time once i release the switch the flame goes out.any help on...

You need a new THERMOCOUPLE. They seem to be out of business. I would try a Heating and Cooling Supplier and try to match it up with what they have in stock.

How to light our gas cooker

Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.

1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.

2.Push the ignition switch once.

3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.

4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.

5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.
