There is a sensor right above the pilot light. Your pilot light might be on, but your sensor is not seeing it as being lit and will not allow the heater to come on. You can pull that sensor off and clean it with fine emery cloth or just go buy a new sensor. The cost of the sensor shouldn't be more than about $20 bucks.

Williams 3003622 pilot light is on but heat doesn't turn on- there is a "Do It" thermostat connected. Is it a problem with the thermostat or furnace?


Try jumping out the thermostat (red and white wires) that run to the thermostat these tell the heater to come on. Jump them together if you have heat it is the thermostat, if no heat it is the furnace. Should it be the furnace I would first check the thermocouple or some manufacturers call it a flame generator. Clean this with steel wool and position it in the top center area of the flame as this is the hottest part of the flame. Good luck

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

The pilot light will not stay lit, I was told


Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

The blower is heat activated, it takes more than the pilot. If the burners are on, verify power to the unit.

Williams Model 435FXR Serial GO222436 Forced air pilot keeps going out


BY THERMISTOR, ARE YOU MEANING THERMOCOUPLE, I.E. WHAT YOUR PILOT LIGHT IS HEATING? IF SO, COULD BE WEAK AND NOT GENERATING ENOUGH VOLTAGE TO STAY OPEN, SHOULD BE BETWEEN 10-25 MILLIVOLTS DC, WHICH CAN BE TESTED AT THE INTERRUPTER LEADS. YOU CAN ALSO BYPASS THE LIMIT DISC TEMPORARILY TO SEE IF THE UNIT STAYS LIT, REPLACE IT IF THE UNIT RUNS.
