PILOT LIGHT COMES ON BUT WHEN YOU TURN THE KNOB TO ON IT DOES NOT LIGHT UP THE CIRCLE PLATE IN THE HEATER. IT JUMPS AND THE FIRE COMES OUT THEN IT GOES OUT.


I'm not sure what unit you are troubleshooting but if the main burner is igniting and that main burner flame is blowing out the pilot flame, it's possible the pilot flame orifice needs to be cleaned. The orifice can get stopped up and produce a weak pilot. And I've seen a pilot lite, but be blown out by the combustion of the main burner igniting. Now you stated IT JUMPS. If you mean the pilot flame jumps, as if it gets large then weak and goes out, then the gas valve is giving you trouble and may need to be replaced.

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

Hi my myson orion has a pilot but nothing coming out of the main burners when demand for heat hot water, please help. cheers


A furnace goes through more checks than the Shuttle before it lights! First, on the control board, are there any lights blinking, if it did light, there should be. Somewhere there is a placard showing what the number of blinks means; I need to know what is says on the placard. In the meantime, check the draft fan sensor - it looks like a small flying saucer towards the top. Blow and **** on the tubes and listen for a clicking sound and look for the presence of any water in that tube. That switch verifies that the draft fan is on and the mains will not fire if the control board doesn't get the proper sequence of signal......off, sensor open, fan on, sensor closed, verify pilot, fire mains, verify mains all it (sensor at opposite end from pilot). Hope this helps, if not, get back to me with that control board code. Ron

Imperial deep fryer IFS40 pilot lights, turn on gas valve main burners come on run for awhile then everything shuts down main and pilot. You can disconnect the thermostat and the same thing happens, main...


Hi there, it sounds like your thermopile, for the pilot, is failing during use, when this happens, the small DC voltage it generates is less than the gas valve requires to stay open, and shuts off the pilot, which shuts off the main burners. Another thing that could be happening, is the hi limit is opening prematurely, instead of shutting of the pilot at 450 deg. it now is opening at 325, or 225 or 250. Sometimes the sensing bulb gets broken where it pass's through the oil tank causing this symptom. If you temporarily bypassed the hi limit to test this also, and it still goes off, you need a thermopile. If it stays on, check your temp with a reliable thermometer, and see if it reads fairly close to your setting, if so, then you need a hi limit.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Water heater pilot light


it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
