PILOT LIGHT COMES ON BUT WHEN YOU TURN THE KNOB TO ON IT DOES NOT LIGHT UP THE CIRCLE PLATE IN THE HEATER. IT JUMPS AND THE FIRE COMES OUT THEN IT GOES OUT.


I'm not sure what unit you are troubleshooting but if the main burner is igniting and that main burner flame is blowing out the pilot flame, it's possible the pilot flame orifice needs to be cleaned. The orifice can get stopped up and produce a weak pilot. And I've seen a pilot lite, but be blown out by the combustion of the main burner igniting. Now you stated IT JUMPS. If you mean the pilot flame jumps, as if it gets large then weak and goes out, then the gas valve is giving you trouble and may need to be replaced.

The pilot light will only stay lit when you hold the pilot reset button in, as soon as you let the button out the pilot light goes out and the actual burners never come on. Any ideas?


Gas line is clogged if your pilot lite goes out - They got rid of pilot stoves because the pilot was always lit and using gas.

And without a lit pilot no way you can get the burner to ignite unless you use a match, assuming you have gas going to the burner!

Pilot light will not ignite water heater


the pilot light serves to purposes. it is the source of ignition for the main burner and is a safety device that detects wether there is a flame or not. if the pilot light stays on when you stop pressing the pilot light button then you need to turn the knob to the on position to light the main burner. the pilot light is not the on position. if the pilot light goes out when you stop pressing the pilot light button then the thermocouple or flame sensor needs replacing. good luck

Pilotlight is not igniting. I have it in the on position but it is not on and hence not igniting the ga. I would like to know what I need to do to get the pilot light to light


From what I just read online your heater uses a hot surface igniter to light the pilot. Turn the heater off. Give it a couple minutes, maybe 10. Then turn it back on. It probably goes through a purge cycle first then tries to light the pilot. You should be able to see the hot surface igniter glowing red somewhere close to the pilot. If not the igniter may be bad. Let me know what you see.

Pilot light on heater goes on and off when it is heating


If it is electronic ignition this is normal. If it is a standing pilot then you have a problem with the gas valve. With electronic ignition this will light the pilot on a call for heat.

After heating pilot goes out . my igniter is bad so i light manually and after heating main burner shuts off and so does pilot


The thermocouple that controls the gas to the pilot light must be bad. The thermocouple, when it is heated by the pilot light keeps a valve open that keeps gas flowing to the the pilot light. This thermocouple closes the valve that supplies gas to the pilot light, this is to prevent gas from continuing to escape when the pilot light goes out. This is a safety issue, I recommend that you call a professional about this problem. You might be able to repair it your self by replacing the thermocouple but I still recommend that you have it checked by a professional.

Are you holding the pilot button down when lighting the pilot light?
Hold it down longer once the pilot lights........ a minute may be necessary.
