Hello there:- Before you condame the main gas valve ( the combination valve ) You should check out four things. Firstly after you light the pilot remember to turn the dial to ON on the gas valve. Secondly check the thermostate by passing the terminals . Thirdly check the pilot flame is it strong and blue in colour. fourthly check the thermopile (if you don't have a meter to check it ) or change it and keep the old one in case it is still good. It should comes on if not then you can say the main gas valve is defective. Hope this can help. Good Day and God Bless.

I have a pitco 18ss-gv.the pilot is lit, but the ignitor wont fire the burners on. It worked last night, but not today for some reason.


Where the pilot light is should be a small copper tube connected to a smaller copper tube that goes back to the main gas valve. It's called a thermocouple. That's what tells the main gas valve the pilot is lit and allows the main burner to come on only when the pilot is burning so it doesn't flood the room with gas. The thermocouple is most likely bad. They usually have them at hardware stores like ace or you can have a professional replace it. It's fairly simple, if you do it yourself, bring the old one with you to the hardware store.

Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on


You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

What water heater do you have??
What Brand and model number, and what type of gas control valve?

You might have air in the gas line.

The pilot light on the oven is on how ever the burner will not come on when the oven is turned up.


Hello,
Their is 2 possible things that are causing the oven to not heat.

1) the pilot burner is clogged with build up and not burning corretly...the standing pitol light is small and when the oven is turned on the pilot enlarges and heats a small bulb connected to a tube on a gas valve,if the pilot burner is clogged it will burn the small pilot but will not enlarge to heat that bulb so the gas will flow to the main burner.If that is whats happening the pilot burner needs to be replaced.

2) the pilot burner is properly heating the bulb connected to the above mentioned gas valve but that gas valve is bad and not opening once the pilot has heated the bulb..so in that case that gas valve would need to be replaced

MAIN BURNER SHUTS DOWN JUST AFTER IGNITION FLAME RODS TESTED VENT CHECKED


The Thermocouple or Thermopile has failed and needs to be replaced. The Thermocouple is a safety feature that keeps the pilot burning if all operations of the gas valve are safe. If the pilot burns, the burners will light. The Thermocouple shuts off the gas control valve if the pilot goes out.

Oven pilot light is on, but burners will not light. pilot light burns larger when trying to turn burner on. Do I need a new thermostat?


The thermostat is doing it's job if the pilot gets bigger. When you turn on the thermo, it does 2 things: Makes the pilot bigger and supplies gas to the oven safety valve in the oven. The bigger pilot heats up the bulb from the valve and the stuff inside expands and turns on the main gas. The oven cycles when temo is reached by making the pilot smaller. The most common problem is that the pilot doesn't get big enough to satisfy the valve. Take out the pilot burner ***'y. (7/16" wrench for the nut). Replace the pilot burner. The part is probably a 5414S030 if the valve bulb is located parallel to the ***'y.

Pilot will light but main burner will not light


if burner lights after jumping valve you have something wrong in thermostat loop. disconnect the 2 thermostat wires on gas valve and use multimeter on continuity setting. if all wires ,connectors and components are good,you will get a tone.since you have jumped out each component in thermostat loop with no success ,i would suspect a bad wire or oxidation on a terminal .

Propane patio heater ignition problem


I would change the thermocouple and here is why:

The thermocouple is the pilot's, well, co-pilot! It is the electronic device that senses if the pilot flame is hot enough to sustain burning the gas fuel from the burner. If the thermocouple thinks it's safe, then it keeps open the main gas valve located in the pilot assembly. If the thermocouple does not sense enough heat from the pilot flame (such as when the pilot is out), then the thermocouple shuts off the gas valve to the burners.
How the Thermocouple Works
So what is this thing and how does it work? Well the thermocouple (technically called a thermocouple junction) is a device that contains two metal wires welded at the ends and placed inside a protective metal case. The thermocouple sensor is found at the business end of the pilot flame and is designed to be placed in the hottest part of the flame. The other end is connected to the pilot valve body. As the thermocouple heats up, it produces a small amount of electricity and when it gets hot enough from the pilot, send a signal to open the gas valve by using a solenoid operated by a 24 volt transformer. The thermocouple calls the shots, and by converting heat to an electrical signal, it allows the gas valve to open or close. Once the gas valve is open, gas is then constantly supplied to the pilot and as required for the gas burners (as called for by the thermostat). If the pilot goes out, then the thermocouple gets cold and produces no electric signal to open the gas valve's solenoid and the gas valve shuts off the gas supply to the pilot and burners
