Hi.

Air duct must be checked. Poor ventilation is common cause for the problem.

If ventilation is OK, then the other possible cause is a defective flame sensor. The flame sensor is connected in parallel with the valve solenoid. For safety reasons testing must be done by a technician.

To get a quote on repair ring the service number listed on the user manual.

Under the gas valve is a removable panel. On models of that era there should also be a second panel behind the first. remove both.

the pilot light should be clearly visible.

If no pilot, turn the gas valve to OFF. wait 60 seconds. locate the tubes from the gas valve to the pilot location. turn the valve to pilot, and with a long match or grill lighter lit, place flame at the pilot location and press down on the pilot button beside the main valve.

pilot should light. If not shut off the gas and call a technician. If yes, hold the pilot button for 60 seconds, then slowly release. Pilot should stay lit. If not, shut off gas and replace thermocouple, start relight sequence over. If pilot stays lit, replace inner cover and adjust temp to 120 deg. If heater fires up, replace outer cover. Done.

If heater does not light, replace gas valve or entire unit. Water heaters have a limited life expectancy, and if my recollection is correct your unit is 10yrs past warranty.

How do you light the pilot light on vulcan compact 60? there is no ignotion button to be seen


hi chris, did you work out how to light the pilot light! the instructions are great until it says light the pilot.... yeah, but where is the pilot light?? it is easy to find when it is on... but not obvious when off... i\'m pressing the button in for 15 seconds and then waving around a naked flame... it just doesn\'t feel safe after 30 seconds of gas wissing and no joy... plus i\'m in a crawl space under my apartment covered in spider webs - i\'d love another clue so i can get out of the crawl space quicker ;-) thanks ren

Pilot light will not stay lit as soon as you let off the gas valVE arm it will go out. vulcan model TK 65


1. Check to make sure you have continuity across the high limit terminals.( you can use a jumper wire for testing) Unit operates on about 1/2 of 1 volt so no worry of a shock. 2. Check to make sure your pilot generator is producing over 500 millivolts. Make sure the pilot orifice is clean and that you have a nice sharp pilot flame heating the pilot generator.

One of the top burner pilot lights will not stay


You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

Pilot light won't stay lit


If your pilot does not stay lit it is either thermocouple or gas valve. You acan pickup a thermocouple at a hardware store or at Lowes or Home depot. Rus
