You need to change the thermal coupling,,its that littel bit that the pilot light plays the flame onto this part heats up and it holds the gas velve open if its not getting hot or is broken you could hold the pilot light in for ever and it would still go out as soon as you let the light go,,,it may help if you put the thermal coupl into the pilot light flame

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.

Just need to know how to light the pilot on a Montgomery Ward wall furnace model sfb-50219


I can't speak to the specific model but with most pilot lights, there is a switch setting or button for lighting. If you release that switch or button too soon, the pilot will not remain light. Hold the switch or button ON while you light the pilot. Keep holding the switch or button for about a minute until the heat sensor is sufficiently warmed that the pilot light stays on. Good luck.

CGA Mclain .Natural Gas boiler issue 70k btu with a effikal ventx damper, model RVGP. There is no blower for ventilation, no control board with lights. Pilot light will not stay lit. have already replaced...


hey Carli suspect you mean the pilot goes out as soon as u turn your gas control valve back to the on position!? If this is so, you will have to probable reset the flue spill switch located right at the exaust outlet. OR, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE ANOTHER LIMIT switch in the same circuit in series. If the pilot goes out when u release the pilot press down knob, then it is your thermo couple is loose or fininshed,or the pilot flame is not aimed properly at the sensor (thermo couple)

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.

Pilot light does light , but as soon as you release the gas knob it goes out


Hi there. You must continue to hold the knob in for at least 30 seconds before releasing. If the pilot still goes out, the "thermocouple" is bad. It's the little tube in the pilot flame. To replace, remove the main burner assembly/pilot. You can get a thermocouple at any hardware store. Ask questions while you are there.
Thanks
