    my heater was bought as a retirment present from Homebase and is the Arizona model made by an Italian company TMC. The pilot light works and lights up the burner but on release, everything goes out. Homebase tell me that they cannot get parts for it. I would love to find a repair man to visit or i will take it anywhere to get it repaired. I live in Market Harborough, Leicestershire

Push knob in on oven sparks & lights release knob flames go out


Often on ovens you have to hold the knob down for a period of time before the flame will stay alight.


Try getting the oven lit then holding the knob down for 30 seconds. That should be more than enough time if that is indeed the problem.

Is it a new oven or has the problem just arisen? It

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.

My Majestic DVR36RN gas-log fireplace insert will not start. No ignition when striker is depressed, no flame lit at all. Gas inlet line open, pilot switch to "pilot" as directed. Maybe...


Majestic DVR36RN: Here's what you need to do: Verify gas line is open. (You said you already have done that). Next turn the switch to pilot (you said you did that too). Make sure wall switch is on also. Now press and hold the pilot switch and hit the ignitor. Once it lights you need to continue to hold the pilot switch for roughly 1 minute. Release the knob and the flame should stay lighted. Now, turn the knob to on. You should be all set now.

The pilot is off and I don't have the manual. How do I start the pilot to turn on the logs


You will need to find the gas valve. Open up the lower section of the fireplace and look foe a small cube of aluminum with a knob on it that says On-Off-Pilot. Turn the knob to the Off position by lining up the word with a small dot or line indicator on the body of the gas valve. Then turn the knob to the Pilot setting. You will know when you are in the correct setting because you will be able to depress the knob into the gas valve body. Hold the knob depressed and click the larger red button. It will snap so don't be startled. Continue to hold the knob in while looking between the logs for a blue flame. If you don't see one, keep snapping the red button. Once you see the flame, continue to hold the knob depressed for 30 seconds or so. Release the knob and make sure the flame stays on. If it does not, repeat nthis procedure and hold down the knob for 45 seconds. If the flame continues to go out, you need a new thermocouple. Once the flame stays lit, rotate the knob to the On setting. The main burner should start within 15 seconds.

Pilot wont light


If the pilot light goes out when you release the primer,then the thermocouple is bad.You can try to adjust the thermocouple,if it can be.It needs to be in the pilot flame.If the thermocouple is not in the flame,it will not stay lit.If you can not get the pilot to light at all,with the primer pushed down,then replace the regulator.To light the pilot light,you need to turn the dial to pilot.Then press the primer button down and hold it.The primer is either built into the turn knob,or it is a res button.Hold the primer down,and light the pilot,continue holding the primer down for at least 40 seconds.Then release the primer slowly,and if the pilot light starts to get weak,and try to go out,then push back down,and hold 30 seconds more.After the pilot stays lit,turn the knob to furnace or low,or whatever the directions say.

Dyna-glo rmc-fa100a won't stay lit after releasing pilot knob


You should hold the pilot knob in at least 1 to 2 minutes, if it still goes out you need to replace the thermocouple. I hope this helps you out.
