Need to light pilot light


You need to turn the knob on the gas valve (inside the heater) to the "pilot" position. Then, while holding a flame over the pilot assembly push down on the knob.

Gas should come out of the pilot and ignite. Continue holding the knob down for 10-15 seconds. Release the knob and the pilot should stay lit. If not the pilot generator may need to be replaced.

Turn the knob to the "on" position, close the heater and turn the heater on and turn the thermostat to hot. The heater should fire. If it does not fire and the pilot goes out, that may also indicate a pilot generator problem.

I have Laars Lite2 125k BTU Propane. pilot stay lit and after some time hear click sound in gas valve but it will not fired up and also pilot goes off right away.


It sounds like you need to replace the pilot generator. This is the metal cylinder that sets in the flame of the pilot and supplies voltage to the system. When it gets weak, it will support the pilot valve to remain open, but when the main valve tries to open the pilot generator cannot provide enough electricity, and everything shuts down. It's a prime suspect in your situation.

Pilot light would not light but i could hear and smell gas coming out of pilot valve so i took off cover and cleaned it. It still would not light with the ignitor button so I did it manually and there is a...


sounds like the thermocouple:
The thermocouple is a safety device that turns off the gas if there is no pilot light. If you look closely at the burning pilot light, there is a small metal tube that sits directly in the flame, with wires that lead back to the gas valve. The thermocouple generates a small amount of electrical current when heated by the flame. This current keeps the gas safety valve open. If the pilot light gets blown out, the current stops and the gas valve closes. When you light the pilot light, you hold down the over-ride button for about 30 seconds. This allows the gas to flow long enough to heat up the thermocouple and generate current and then you can release the over-ride button and gas will continue to flow. If the thermocouple is defective, then as soon as you release the over-ride button, since there is no electrical current, the gas will stop flowing and the pilot light will go out.

This is a pretty common failure on water heaters and furnaces. Replacement of the thermocouple is fairly simple if you are the handyman type. If not, the thermocouple is a cheap part -- about $10 bucks, but the service call may run you $100 or so. Before you call a serviceman, get all of the brand and model information from the information plate on the heater so he can bring the proper replacement part. And sorry for your trouble. hope this helps:)

Water not hot even thermostate turned to high. The pilot light is on. Shoulder I be able to visualise the burner actually firing.,or hear it firing. I can see the pilot light clearly. Please help


If you have cold water now, you should hear the unit fire up and run while heating water. Proceedure would be; pilot is lit with thermostat at pilot setting. Once pilot is lit, you turn up to desired temp setting and you should hear the heater running. Depending on lighting, you should be able to see it slightly brighter and may flicker some while heating.
