It sounds like you need to replace the thermocouple. It will cause the symptons that you describe. If it is just a flame rod then you may be able to just clean it with steel wool. Let me know what you find.

Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Raypak 403A, burners will not stay lit for more than a few minutes.


i'm thinking after the main valve opens the pressure could be dropping in the pilot tube. this could be due to a dirty, plugged and sometimes spider web inside the pilot tube. rare but does happen, nice warm home for a spider. good luck. if not let me know. could also be weak pilot coil.

How do i light pilot light?


Remove front cover,or just lower section if you can. they usually just need to be lifted up about an inch or so and pulled out. However some have covers that snap in place. After you remove cover locate gas valve. It should have a control knob on top with markings for on, off, and pilot. Set control to pilot. Follow lines from gas valve to burner compartment, one goes to main burner one ,small copper colored line is the thermocouple, other line is the pilot. Turn thermostat down as far as it will go. Make sure gas supply valve in line to heater is on and then depress pilot control , when you have pilot control depressed have a match or other small flame source close to pilot assembly. If it lights then hold down on pilot control for a couple of mins. Slowly release pilot control and if it stays lit turn gas control to on. Turn thermostat up to call for heat and burner should light. If pilot doesn't stay lit when you release pilot control then try again holding pilot down longer. If it still won't stay lit then thermocouple will need replace. Good luck. Thanks

Im calling for heat from the thermastat and control panel, the boiler light and and the fan is running, but no matter how many times i keep re trying the pilot and burner will not commence, is there...


I would check to make sure control on gas valve is in on position and pilot is lit if you have a standing pilot. If you have a spark or hot surface ignitor make sure they are trying to lit pilot. If you have standing pilot model and pilot lit is not on. Turn control on gas valve to off,wait five mins. then turn to pilot. Depress botton and try to light pilot. If it lights hold down for a couple of mins. then release.. If pilot stays lit turn control to on. If thermostat is calling for heat this should bring main burner on. If pilot does not stay lit then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks

Pilot light keeps going out


Either the pilot light orfice is dirty, and you will need to pull it out and clean it, or the thermocouple is bad. If the pilot goes out as soon as you let the button go then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot stays lit for a few days or hours then you will need to clean the pilot orfice, heres how:
1 turn off the gas supply
2 unhook the main burner gas line from the thermostat, this is the line that goes to the burner
3 unhook the pilot supply line it is usually next to the main burner line
4 unhook the thermocouple from the thermostat
5 remove the burner assembly
6 take the orfice out of the pilot line and clean it out by blowing thru it, use an air compressor if needed.
7 reassemble and light pilot

Not sure how to relight the pilot light. Some point during the night it just went off. Not sure how or why that happened either. I have tried to do a few things but need help


To light your pilot you will need to find the gas valve assembly. It will be a block of aluminum with a plastic knob and a few pipes attached to it. Once you find it, rotate the knob to the pilot marking on the knob. You will know when you are at the proper setting because you will be able to depress the knob into the gas valve about 3/8". Once you do that, there will be a small red button which you can snap causing a spark at the pilot. There may ba a small viewing port covered by a removable metal shield. OK, Depress and hold in the knob, snap the red button a few times. Keep holding the knob in, look into the viewing port for a blue flame. If no flame, snap the button a few more times looking for a spark. Once you see the flame stop snapping but continue to hold the knob in. Count to 30. Slowly let the knob out watching that the flame stays on. If it starts to go out, quickly depress the knob and hold for a minute. If it continues to go out, you have a bad thermocouple and it is not letting the pilot stay lit. If it stays lit, rotate the knob to On. A few seconds later and if the unit is calling for heat, it should light the main burner. If you need a new thermocouple, go to a good hardware store or Farm Center (bring the old part with you) and ask for a new one.

The burner will only stay lit for a few minutes


Hello. Begin by using a small brush to clean everything in that area. Then light the pilot and light the burner. If it still acts up, change the thermocouple. Regards, joe

Pilot lites; but, as soon as I turn on gas flame


sounds like your thermacouplar is going out and needs replaced. Sometimes these will act like they are working fine , but when the pilot stays on for awhile and later goes out it is a sure sign that it is bad
