Yes, The reason is the thermal cutoffs tell the flame once it has reched max temp just like the thermostat on an a/c. Rate me if I answered your question.

How do you change the thermocouple or flame sensor


Very simple...
one complete bracket will drop straight down and then pull it out.
two small fasteners hold it in place...
one screw and one sm. nut. Located on the very bottom of inside of heater cabinet, Left side, below the burner tray. Nothin to take apart. Easy peasy.

click the link to go to that page, where you will see a picture of the bracket with the igniter and flame sensor. You will see the stud where you will remove the nut, and you will be able to see the hole where the screw is supposed to be, both securing it to the burner tray.

Pilot light wont stay lit, even when on high


Pilot lights are supposed to stay on when the flames are burning. If they didn't the flames would go out, because the pilot flame against the Thermocouple keeps the pilot burning. It's a safety feature.

The igniter comes on, lights the flame but the flame only stays on for about 5 seconds and then the flame shuts off. About 1 minute or two later this cycle repeats itself.


There's a heat sensor that's in the path of the flame. It's supposed to detect when the flame is lit properly so you don't fill your house with unburned gas.

I'd bet that sensor has gone south, or maybe the wire going to it.

What brand/model is it? A diagram and parts listing might come in handy.

No it is not supposed to, please check to see that you have the chimney seated correctly. The chimney is the part that the flames heat up. It should sit flat on the steel ring around the wick.

Is there supposed to be flame coming around the cone of a 115,000 btu reddy forced air kerosne heater?


no. the flame should be behind the cone. If it passes the cone, this means that there is too much air. simply turn the air pressure screw until the flame no longer comes beyond the cone.

Pilot light won't ignite on a Rinnai 2000 1


The trick is that it may take a long time for the flammable portion of the gas to reach the pilot light orifice where the flame lives. This happens a lot when the pilot flame has been out for some time. There won't be a clicking sound as YOU are supposed to provide the flame - it's not like a cooking stove with such conveniences, because the pilot light is only an occasional thing to light it's rare to find an ignition source built in. I'd hate to see you spend good money when all you need to apply here is time and a flame.

Igniter on Wolf Stove clicks continuosly


Depends what Wolf model you have, if you have model AS48KI and the flame looks really high, (it supposed look like a flower), most cases the top burners are misaligned, you can try to re align the burners by turning them around. afterward if the burners are still clicking it may be ignition problem. Have fun.
