Rheem gas water heater pilot light went out when i tried to relight it does not light up again.


Usually if they won't re-light it's a problem with the orifice on the pilot itself. The thermocouple won't cause it to re-light but it will prevent it from staying on after being lit. Just make sure you have valve set to pilot when you press the red button down to light. You can take out the burner by removing the gas and thermocouple lines, unscrew the orifice and use like a wire brush bristle to clean out the hole in the orifice.

The pilot assembly may need cleaned out and the orifice cleaned, also the gas valve may need to be replaced, to check for proper voltage from the thermocouple you need a flame source and it takes a meter that can register DC milliamps, and should be 350 to 750 millivolts. Heat the thermocouple with the pilot or other flame source and check, if OK, gas valve is weak.

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

Pilot light on the gas boiler won't stay lit it's


The pilot flame must touch (burn) the tip oqef the t-couple to hold the magnet in the gas value open.make sure the pilot orifice (hole) is clear.the pilot pressure (in the tube) is factory set full open & can only be adjusted down (less). Also check the gas **** didn't get closed or turned half way.? Assuming its not the t-couple. If all is good & it still won't stay on. Replace the gas value.!

Pilot won't stay lit, replaced thermalcouple but


I would remove pilot light assembly and clean orifice and blow out gas line to pilot. Check to see that thermocouple is centered in pilot flame. It is possiblethat your gas valve is bad but it is also possible that you got a defective thermocouple. I would change the thermocouple again as they are much less expensive then the gas valves. The next time when you are sure you have the thernocouple mounted as close to the center of the pilot flame hold the pilot button down for several mins. If none of this works then you may have to change your gas valve.Thank you.

Pilot light won't light the low flame or stay on


If the pilot light will light at all but not have a good strong flame I would remove pilot assembly and clean it thourghly,being careful not to damage pilot orifice. Reinstall pilot and seeif you have any improvement. If pilot still won't stay lit I would replace thermocouple being careful to make sure top inch or so is in pilot flame. Hope this helps. Thanks

Hi and welcome to FiXya I am Kelly.

Your pilot light burning yellow is a sign of a dirty orifice. This can be caused by insects or a spider web in the pilot air supply.
To clean the air supply / orifice area see this page:

http://www.nexgrill.net/trouble/p1.5.html

Also the thermocouple may not be close enough to the flame. You won't know this for sure until you finish cleaning the pilot / orifice area.

This link has step by step links for all of the components / causes of a pilot not staying lit. Click each of them and it will bring up a pdf file with step by step instructions and pictures:

http://www.nexgrill.net/trouble/p3.html

A bad thermocouple can also cause this. Givien you have a yellow flame I do not think this is your problem. But if it ends not staying lit after cleaning see this page on how to get to the thermocouple:

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Pilot light will not stay lit on model 465FX-R wall mounted gas furnace. Thermocouple was replaced but still won't stay lit. Gas is on at the meter. Any suggestions?


It is possible that gas valve is bad, however, try replacing the pilot orifice located in the pilot assembly. If the flame is inadequate it will not generate the voltage required in the thermocouple. Pilot orifices are less than $10 and can be found at your local heating contractor's parts counter. Bring in the orifice to match.

Pilot light wont stay lit.want to clean the orifice


You shut off the gas.
Shut off the power.
Remove the gas valve and burner assembly.
After cleaning and reassembly you must purge the system and use a gas leak detecting soap to verify no leaks before turning on the power.

Cozy furnace


The pilot orifice could be dirty causing the pilot flame to be too small. Unscrew the pilot tube at the pilot assembly. The orifice is inside. Remove the orifice and blow it out with compressed air only. Reassemble and see if that fixes the problem. If the pilot flame is set too low, sometimes opening a door will cause a draft to blow out the pilot. If the thermocouple is good and the pilot flame is set properly, the control valve may be bad.
