Pilot goes off as soon as I release the button


You need to hold the button down for about 3 mins. If it goes out after that long the thermocouple is probably bad. Look at how long the wire is from the pilot light to the gas valve. They come in different lengths.

Is there a trick to starting the Pyrox 400? Turned the fan on and press on low then repeatedly press the ignition pilot light, start to smell of gas after a minute. Won't start Help please


Is the ignition sparking? When you press and hold down the buttons, the ignition should be sparking at the centre electrode. At the same time when you hold the buttons down, the gas valve is manually held open to release the gas. The spark is then supposed to ignite the gas. Hold the knobs down for about 3 to 5 seconds after ignition and the gas valve will stay on. If it lights but the flame wont stay on, it could be anything from a partially blocked aeration port to a worn knob. When you push down on the knob, it is supposed to press down on an electromagnetic lock which keeps the gas valve open when the flame is burning. When the knob or shaft isn't pushing down enough, it doesn't keep the gas valve locked and the flame will go out as soon as you let the knob go.

I have a Whirlpool gas water heater and the pilot light went out. When I light it it goes out as soon as soon as I release the RESET button.


if it keeps going out, its more likely the thermal coupling is bad and needs replaced. if the coupling goes bad it shuts gas of to heater as a safety precaution. it does not let any gas come out of the main regulator. it works on the principal when the end gets hot it opens the gas valve and lets gas through to burner. replace coupling. have a good day !!

The heater doesn't ignite.. I push and hold the button.. but doesn't ignite


If you mean it won't stay running after the unit actually starts...meaning as soon as you release the red button it shuts off then you would need to clean the end of the thermocouple that screws into the gas valve....not the end that goes into the flame.
Remove the small nut and clean the end with a small wire brush or scrape some metal off with a knife, then scrape some metal inside the valve where the end of the thermocouple seats.

But if you mean it will not start at all then you need to make sure gas in getting through the valve.

The pilot light has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If flame goes out it shuts gas off to the pilot jet. The thermocouple is bypassed by a switch during the initial ignition and once the thermocouple warms up after a minute or two of holding in the bypass switch, it should maintain the pilot. It seems that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced if pilot light keeps going out.

Heater won't stay lit after releasing yellow button


you need to replace the thermocouple at the burner tip it will be a copper line with a bulb in the flame tip with a copper tube leading back to the gas valve and it senses the flame and keeps the gas valve open

The pilot light will not stay lit to light the heater.


The power pile (pilot generator) is defective. It produces a milivolt signal to ensure to keep the gas valve open. If it goes bad, the valve thinks the pilot is out, even when you are holding the button down, so when you release the button, it shuts the gas off to prevent excess gas buildup and a possible explosion.
