Under the gas valve is a removable panel. On models of that era there should also be a second panel behind the first. remove both.

the pilot light should be clearly visible.

If no pilot, turn the gas valve to OFF. wait 60 seconds. locate the tubes from the gas valve to the pilot location. turn the valve to pilot, and with a long match or grill lighter lit, place flame at the pilot location and press down on the pilot button beside the main valve.

pilot should light. If not shut off the gas and call a technician. If yes, hold the pilot button for 60 seconds, then slowly release. Pilot should stay lit. If not, shut off gas and replace thermocouple, start relight sequence over. If pilot stays lit, replace inner cover and adjust temp to 120 deg. If heater fires up, replace outer cover. Done.

If heater does not light, replace gas valve or entire unit. Water heaters have a limited life expectancy, and if my recollection is correct your unit is 10yrs past warranty.

Pilot light will not light


If your pilot on your gas water heater will not stay lit you need to take one step at a time.

Let's look at how you tried top light it. Turn the gas valve to the off position and then move it to the pilot position. If you can see inside under the heater and there is no glass view window you need to take a lighter or a match on an extended stick so the flame can sit right under the pilot tube. Push down on the red button and then the gas should light on the pilot burner. Hold the button down for a FULL 60 seconds.

Then slowly release the red button the main burner should then come on. Now if the pilot flame goes out right away as you're releasing the red button you have one or two more things you need to look at.

1st would be to replace the thermo coupling. You have to remove the whole burner tray to do that. If that does not work then the gas valve is bad and you need to replace it also. Make sure that when you buy a new gas valve you match up the gas type Natural gas to L P gas. They must match with the gas feeding your house or it will never work,

Thanks and best of luck

The burners will not light. The pilot does light. I had my staff try to hit anything that looked a reset, but I don't know if the high limit switch has a reset or if the switch itself is bad.


The high limit switch has nothing to do with the pilot light, but will shut down the main burners. It the pilot light will not stay lit, then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot light will not light at all, then gas is not reaching the pilot. Most likely, the pilot light tube is clogged with grease. When you push on the button to light the pilot, you are overriding all safeties inside the unit and sending gas to the pilot. Also make sure that the unit itself is getting gas. New regulations require a shut off within the hose that feeds the appliance which will shut off due to a surge of gas through the hose. To reset it, disconnect/reconnect the hose at the intake end and when you turn the gas back on, turn it on slowly.

I have a Vulcan Gas wall furnace that is not working. We cannot work out how to light the pilot light. According to the documents we have it is a 26.4MJ model or the 40MJ model


The Quazar manual says....
-Thermostat control knob to 0
-Then press and hold down * (Star) button
-The press the "ignition" button one or more times until the pilot lights
CONTINUE to hold the * button for at least 15 seconds and release slowly making sure the pilot stays lighted.
-If the pilot goes out.. repeats steps above and hold the * button for much longer than 15 seconds and THEN release the * button slowly.

How to light pilot light


Your gas valve has 3 positions. "OFF", "PILOT" and "ON". Turn it to "PILOT" and push it down hard. Hold it 2-4 seconds and light the pilot assembly. Keep holding it for 10-15 seconds and slowly let it up. The pilot should stay lit.

I have a Rheem gas furnace, model # RGAA-100C and need help lighting the pilot. The instructions on the metal plate tell me to set the valve to off, then to pilot, push the valve down until lit, and then...


Hi, follow what I say and it is very easy. The knob that says off, on, and pilot, is where you need to start. You don't want to turn it off now, as its been off for awhile now. Turn the knob slowly pushing down on it until you fill it go down. The knob will go down believe me. When this happens, keep holding it down as this is what starts the gas to the pilot which is back under the burner, under it. Just take a flash light and you can follow the aluminum tubing back and where it stops is where you light it with something long with a match in it or a small rolled up paper. Keep the knob down the whole time you are lighting it. When it lights, keep the knob pushed down for about another minute. Then slowly release the knob and the pilot should stay on. Once you have it on, turn the knob to on, not off. If you turn it the wrong way, it will go off and you will need to start over again. Once it stays on by itself, turn your thermostat up for heat and the burner will light and come on. Just remember that the pilot where you light it is where the tubing goes back under it, as the pilot gas goes through it. You will need a light. Look at the knob with a good light and it will tell you which way to turn it. In the pilot position, the knob will press down to let the pilot gas in, and you can reach back and light it. Then turn knob on. Pilot should stay light. Turn on thermostat and it will fire up. Let me know how it goes. You may have to try a couple of times.

Why does the pilot light keep going out?


Make sure your pilot flame is hitting the thermocoupler. If not then use air to clean pilot port and try again.

Laars Lite 2 Gas-Pilot stays on, but main burner shuts off 10 min


A polit generator produces about 750 MV without a load. Under load it will drop to about 200-250 MV. If the system is working don't worry about it. If the system is not working replace the pilot generator and retest. Pilot generators usually go bad slowly.

REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.
