Hello. Use a small stiff brush and a vacuum cleaner with hose to thoroughly clean the entire mechanical area of the water heater. Then go through the steps to light it once again.

Many times a little dust is the problem with these heaters. If the cleaning does not solve the problem the next step is to change the thermocouple. This is a common item available at any hardware store. Joe

Relight combi pilot light?


These are designed not to light once the thermocouple fails.the thermocouple has a small wire that positions in to the pilot light which checks the pilot is on and keeps the gas governed.once the temperature drops it shuts off the gas to prevent a build up of gas in a room where a pilot light has gone out.this is why you need to hold the button in on reignition to allow the thermocouple to heat up so the gas keeps open.
Try to relight by turning on the gas ....pressing down and holding the button for at least 10 seconds whilst firing the piezo to ignite flame.do not release gas button for at least 10 seconds then slowly release.if the flame on the pilot will not stay alight....then it is likely the thermo has failed.try cleaning the metal wire that is above the pilot jet.still no joy then it needs replacing.hope my comment is of help...please vote.

How to manually reignite rinnai infinity 26


what i would recommend is to turn power off to unit, turn water off, now open a hot tap inside. Go back to hw unit , turn power back on, now turn HW cold water tap to open. Now you should hear the unit start up.& click continuosly, this is the unit trying to lite. The unit has a flow sensor so as water passes threw it ,that tells unit when to lite. If you hear nothing & no water comming threw you strainer located above cold shut off tap is blocked, unscrew black knob & check. If you have flow & no HW check your gas, usally by losening gas union, there is also filter above this. Also plug another power tool into power point to check you have power

Hydrapower 10h -pilot lights but gas wont light only lights when I tap the pilot tube. Then works for a while and reverts to not lighting the gas again


First suspect is air in gas line or dirty combustion parts.
Typical gas water heaters today suggest cleaning burner parts yearly, including bleeding air out of gas line.
Use a burner brush to clean tubes:

Other suspect could be faulty wiring or bad gas valve.

How do i reignite a worcester 24i combi boiler ?


I looked up this unit for you and found out it is a hot water system. She needs to get to the main gas valve to light the pilot. This unit has what is called a thermocouple on it that keeps the pilot on, even when the boiler shuts down. Its just a matter of lighting the pilot light. There should be a metal plate with the directions on it at the gas valve to lite it. You will have a knob, more then likely red or black in color on top of the valve. It will say on, off, and pilot. It should be in the on position now. Turn it to pilot. Have some matches with you and a flashlight if you can. You will need to look back into the burner area to where your pilot light will be. The thermocouple is a copper colored tubing that runs right back to the pilot, as it has to get hot from the pilot flame to work. To start, depending on how far back you have to reach with the match, you may need to use a piece of solid cardboard rolled up, a small piece to light it and reach in. Turn the knob to pilot. Now, push down on the knob and hold it down. This lets gas get back to the pilot, so you must keep it down and light it at the same time. Once it is lite, you have to hold it down for at least a minute. Slowly release it, very slow. The flame should then stay on. Once it is on, turn the gas knob to on. With the thermostat set to come on, it will fire up and heat the water. If the pilot will not stay lite after you hold it down for 1 minute, and keeps going out, the thermocouple will need to be replaced. It is the copper line that screws into the gas valve and goes back to the pilot. You can get them at any hardware store for around $6.00. Maybe you can help her install it. It is very simple to do. I believe the pilot just blew out and she will need to light it. Just follow what I have told you, and she will get it lite. Good Luck to you.
