Get the make and model and check the manufacturers website. A bunch of these got recalled for issues like this. The recall was not very well known. If you can find anything on it, check with a local RV dealer about the recalls and the repairs. Or you can post it here.

    More specifically, we used it this weekend on gas. We switched it to Auto so it would run on 12 volts for the ride home. When we got home I tried to switch it over to gas and that's when the issue started. Do you know if this is part of the problem they are recalling?

    The recall was for the gas unit control failing and causing catastrophic fires. Your unit sounds like it has the failure but it did not result in a fire. You can repair it yourself all that it involves is replacing the burner unit and sheilding. I dont know if you can get the parts on a recall to do it yourself though and considering the outcome if something goes wrong, I would have it done for me.

My 32000 btu unit lights and runs when it reaches desired temp and shuts off the pilot stays on and you hear a click then a minute later a second click and the pilot light shuts off.


The clicking you are hearing is the gas valve trying to open but because the pilot light is out the valve shut back off. Sounds like the thermocouple is bad on the unit. The thermocouple sits net to the pilot light and allows the gas valve to open. Hope this helps.

If the pilot go out on a furnace would gas continue to flow to the pilot , or would it shut off with in a few seconds


The pilot flame heats a thermocouple, so if the pilot goes out, the thermocouple cools and shuts off the gas. It can take anywhere from 20 seconds to 2 minutes for it to shut off. You should hear an audible click when it happens.

The hot tub Hester will not light up pilot but does turn on and bow cold air


Glenn,
Many things could be wrong. First off, the exhaust fan turns always goes on when you turn on(up) the thermostat. It does that to suck out any residual gas in the combustion chamber. After about 10 seconds you should hear a click which is the gas valve opening to let the gas into the chamber. You should also hear a series of clicks for about 10 sec, which is the electronic ignition firing. If you hear the clicking of the ignition, but do not smell gas from the exhaust, then the gas feed is being blocked. If you don\'t hear the ignition clicking then the computer board is detecting a fault condition by one of its sensors: over-temp, water flow, exhaust fan . These are all in series and if one doesn\'t pass then the ignition won\'t fire.

Natural gas heater with auto (electric) ignite... The exhaust fan is coming on when the unit is turned on, but it is failing to ignite. I can hear it trying to ignite several times, then it stops. Is...


First make sure your gas is on. If that's not it make sure the pilot tube itself is cleaned out try tapping on the pilot head to remove any build up. The furnace on a call for heat will first start the combustion blower then start the ignition procedure, that first starts the spark igniter or glow plug then timed through the circuit board a short 3 second burst of gas after the 3 second burst if the flame sensor does not sense the flame a short purge cycle runs another 3 second burst of gas and then try's for ignition again. Knowing this the only thing it could be is a gas related problem either no gas or no gas making it to the pilot head or the gas valve itself is not opening so check the gas and the pilot tube if there fine then you're more than likely looking at a new gas valve. Sometimes tapping on the gas valve will free a stuck valve.

Hope this helps and please remember to grade me.......thanks again

Turn oven on and smell gas will not light


I had the same problem when I bought a house with a gas range. If you wait ten seconds or more there is a unit that heats up and ignites the range instead of a pilot. You will hear a click every few seconds then while it ignites the stove. I was afraid to wait because I smelled the gas. But after paying someone $100 for a service call that is what happened.

It is electrical and in the back of my stove there is a cord that goes in the wall. make sure it is plugged in. It also affects the burners however they have a light option on the dial, the oven does not.

Hope that helps.

When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..


Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

The pilot light for the oven went out.



Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light

furnace1.jpg - Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box - Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away - Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match - Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot" - Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve - Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit - If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process - Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on - If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
