The gas for both passes thru the FMDA Safety Valve - in you case it's defective and must be replaced. You can find it here

Any idea why my Atwood water heater will shut the main burner and the pilot light off at the same time? Sometimes runs for 20 minutes, sometimes 2. I hear a clicking sound, then they both shut off.


The thermostat shuts off the main burner.The pilot light gas is controlled by the thermocouple which the side of the pilot flame has to envelop. If the flame is too small or too far away from the flame, it shuts the gas off to the pilot. The thermocouple generates a small voltage which keeps the pilot gas open. It can over time fail itself, so look at replacing it. The thermostat sounds like it's failing too.

The burners and pilot light work but the oven will not light. We need to figure out which part to replace. It is a unit converted for propane and has no electric parts.


Ovens generally have a couple of safety devices fitted meaning no gas gets to the oven unless there is sufficient gas pressure. There is also a valve controlled by a thermocouple. The valve prevents gas passing. There is a bypass operated by either a button or pressing in the oven control knob which allows gas to flow to the pilot light (and sometimes the burners). When the pilot light is lighted and has been burning for about half a minute with the flame correctly set to heat the thermocouple bulb the valve will switch on the gas supply and the knob or button can be released. The burners will initially be at maximum until the oven thermostat reduces the flow to maintain the temperature at a preset level.

If gas isn't reaching the oven and the pipework, oven control and thermostat is ok then the safety thermocouple is either defective or wrongly fitted.

How do I lite the oven pilot


If it's an older model with a true pilot light you turn on the gas at supply line valve, open oven door, remove bottom panel to access pilot and burner. Sometimes it's easier to remove broiler drawer on these models but regardless take a lighter and light pilot. Most models are electronic ignitions which if you have it probably needs replaced if it doesn't ignite the burner in under a minute or minute and 15 secs. It could also be a bad thermostat if the burner ignites within the time period described above

My gas was recently shut off for repairs from the gas company, now its back on and i dont know how to get my oven or stove back on


Ok you did not mention if your oven or stive had pilot lights or igniters. Given you asked the question how too turn it back on I have to assume it does not have electronic igniters. You need to light the pilot lights. There are 2 in top that are between each of the 2 burner sets. If you can not gain access to the pilot light by lifting the top of the stove up you can use a fire starter type lighter and re-light them. Sometimes they will self light if you just use a match on the burners.
As for the oven you can gain access 2 ways to the pilot light. One is to unlatch and remove the oven lower inside panel. The pilot light will be near the burner head. Just light it. The other is to remove the broiler drawer and reach way back in there to light the pilot light.


Again if you have igniter ignition all you have to do is turn on a burner or the oven. Good Luck.

Pilots lites , holds ok for minutes,but once move


Hello KJGreen, It sounds, based on your description, as though the thermocouple is faulty and should be replaced. If the pilot light stays lit and you've left it on for several minutes before turning the knob on to light the log set, then that indicates that the thermocouple is bad.

The thermocouple is a safety device (heat sensor) designed to stop the flow of gas to the burner in the event the gas flame goes out and the pilot goes out. The sensor will only allow the gas valve to open once it has reached the preset temperature.

To confirm that the thermocouple is defective, I would light the pilot light and allow it to remain lit for up to 10 minutes before I attempted to turn on the log burner. If, after 10 minutes, the log burner still won't stay lit, then you know that the thermocouple needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the burner should light, since after 10 minutes, the sensor should be hot enough to signal the gas valve to open.

If you are going to have this replaced, please make sure you use only an approved supplier, since an incorrect replacement part could cause an unwelcome malfunction of the gas log burner. Safety should be primary when dealing with open flame burners.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Bosch AQ125BNG Burner goes out even though the


Often, this is the result of a restriction of exhaust gases. This type of hot water heater must be adequately vented, (per installation specs). I found this out after taking a number of cold showers. :^( Two years later, and still counting, no more problems. :^)

When the gas boiler comes on the pilot light goes out after about 60 seconds then reignites itself a few minutes later.


This is caused by a weak flame sensing device. As main burner ignitin occurs this creates a roll out condition , when this condition occurs it derives oxygen from the pilot light thus reducing flame signal and causing the pilot to drop off momentarily.
