SOURCE: Endeless summer heater model 233000

Because of a few factors like dirt buildup, leaking connection or a blockage can be a factor, I will give you the online manual that guides you through entire hookup and assembly. It is possible to overlook a simple connection or a blockage. You can test for a blockage by removing the tank coupler and running compressed air through it and may unblock it the same way. Just make sure that the line is open on the other end as well. Do not use too much pressure because you can damage valves this way. I would recommend reading this manual first and in case you have already, going over all connection for leaks (use a little dish soap and water over each connection). Silly as it sounds, make sure the tank is full as well. The manual explains too about all possibilities of no flame. Good luck

SOURCE: I have a Dayton gas heater Model 3E225

Does the main blower fan kick on? Also, if the heater is vented outside via a flue pipe, there may be a small (about 3 or 4 inches in diameter) vent fan that kicks on to ensure the exhaust fumes are evacuated through the flue pipe. If there's a problem with that fan, the burner won't light either.

SOURCE: pilot light will go out when internal thermostat

Could be the thermopile or bad gas valve. Lets hope for a bad thermopile (costs much less). Are you able to re-light the pilot and does it stay on without the main burner on?

SOURCE: Cozy wall furnace burner will not light. Pilot

Hi, have done this to many times not to know. I will walk you through this. It is good that the pilot is lit. Go to the stat and remove cover. Don't worry as this is a milivolt unit, no voltage or such a small amount you wont even notice as this is why it is called milivolts.Take a small screw driver to remove the next section which is the thermostat and will expose the sub-base where you will find 2 wires connected to it. You may have 2 or 3 screws to take loose to get to this last section. Anyway, if you have a piece of insulated wire laying around, even old speaker wire will work, take it and touch the wire across the 2 terminals and hold. If the furnace comes on, the thermostat is faulty, and you will need to buy a new one. No power to shut down, and simple to change. Cost about $12.00 dollars. Try and get a heat only milivolt stat as they are much less expensive and will have less problems with them. Go to home DEPOT to get one, or O.C.S.H. will also carry them. Don't let the salesman talk you into buying a programable heat and cool stat, 24 volts as they will work, but cost more and you don't need it!! Look around even if you need to go to a wholesale Refrigeration, Air Conditioning, and Heating parts house. Tell them you need one for a unit in some apts you own, and you will pay cash as you want a cash account. They will only ask what job its for, and just tell them your name. This is not illegal and I wouldnt tell you this if it was!! You will still have to pay taxes but will get a wholesale price for it. I am sure it will fire up when you touch the 2 wires and prove stat is bad. For some reason it is not the stat, follow the 2 wires from the stat down to gas valve and jump the same 2 terminals there also. If it fires up, you will have a problem in the wires from the stat to heater and will need to be replaced. I don't think this is the case. But, on the chance it will not fire after you have done all of the steps I have had you do, then you have a faulty main gas valve(MGV) and will need to replace. This is all easy to repair.I am a 100% sure it will fire up when you jump the 2 wires together, and you will need the stat. Please let me know as I will be waiting for an update! Good Luck,
Shastalaker7
PS When you install the new stat, make sure it is Level.

You have gas water heater.
Probably a tank-type gas water heater.

The plumber can fix water heater.
If you want to fix water heater yourself, then more information is needed to narrow down scope of answer.
1) Add a comment for possible help.
Instructions for lighting the water heater appear on front of water heater. Do those instructions include lighting the pilot light?
Will the pilot light stay lit?
On side of tank is a label. Label shows Brand, type (LP or NG), and model number.
This information can help narrow the type of gas control valve, and point direction for troubleshoot.
Add a comment with this information for possible help.

2) Do-it-yourself: Open following link for do-it-yourself resources to help solve gas water heater problems:
Generally the instructions show how to clean water heater parts, check venting, and show different types of gas controls, plus links for pilot light problems and cleaning air intake.

The pilot is iside the burner compartment of the furnace. Remove the cover and follow the 1/8" tubing to an orifice. This is where you light the pilot. the gas valve must also be turned off for a couple of minutes before trying to light the pilot. After a few minutes, turn the valve to pilot and light the pilot. Hold it for 30 seconds and then turn the valve to "ON"

I would suggest that you remove pilot assembly from gas valve and burner and clean pilot orifice and see if that helps. Be careful when cleaning hole in the orifice so you don't enlarge the hole. Good luck and thank you.

How do i light pilot light?


Remove front cover,or just lower section if you can. they usually just need to be lifted up about an inch or so and pulled out. However some have covers that snap in place. After you remove cover locate gas valve. It should have a control knob on top with markings for on, off, and pilot. Set control to pilot. Follow lines from gas valve to burner compartment, one goes to main burner one ,small copper colored line is the thermocouple, other line is the pilot. Turn thermostat down as far as it will go. Make sure gas supply valve in line to heater is on and then depress pilot control , when you have pilot control depressed have a match or other small flame source close to pilot assembly. If it lights then hold down on pilot control for a couple of mins. Slowly release pilot control and if it stays lit turn gas control to on. Turn thermostat up to call for heat and burner should light. If pilot doesn't stay lit when you release pilot control then try again holding pilot down longer. If it still won't stay lit then thermocouple will need replace. Good luck. Thanks

Hello,

If your GE hot water heater fails to light, the first thing you should do is make sure the gas is turned on. Before checking the gas be sure to turn the control knob over to "Pilot." This will prevent the heater from coming on unexpectedly while you are checking the unit. After making sure that the knob is set to "Pilot," carefully remove the cover and look for the flame at the end of the gas line.
If the pilot light is not on, it is possible that the gas inlet valve is partially or totally closed. To check, turn the handle next to the line and follow the instructions on the tank to relight the pilot light. Keep the cover off of the unit and look for the pilot light to go on. If the pilot light does not light, gas may not be flowing. If you suspect a problem with the gas line, be sure to contact your utility company right away.
If you suspect that the burner on your GE hot water heater is not on, remove the cover and carefully look at the burner. If the burner is not on, make sure that the thermostat is set properly. The thermostat should be set to approximately 120 degrees Fahrenheit - if the setting it not right adjust it and then turn on a hot water faucet and allow it to run for several minutes. After the faucet has been running for a few minutes, look at the burner again. If the burner does not ignite, try adjusting the thermostat up and down until the burner comes on.
Good luck.

It wont lite, how do you lite the pilot, where is it located, do you have a manual i have a coleman presidental 3 furnace


There is a window directly above the gas control valve. Either a spring held latch or a screw off cover need to be removed to access the pilot. To light the pilot, turn the knob to pilot and hold down while lighting pilot. The pilot in straight back inside the hole about 10 inches. Use a long fireplace match or rig a wire to hold the match. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob down for about 30 secs., if it stays lit after release, turn to "On" and operate normally.

You may have a dirty/rusty burner that is clogged or your gas valve
manifold pressure setting may be too low. Normal manifold pressure
is 3.5 inches water column on natural gas furnaces. ( 1 psig is equivalent to 28 inches water column). Pull and clean burner. Also
check and clean pilot assy. including flame sensor (if present).
Please let me know.
