I would first check to see if pilot flame is burning clean and strong enough.It should have about 1&1/2 inch flame with slight yellow on tip. Most of flame should be bright blue. It's possible that pilot orifice and/or gas feed tube are dirty. If you feel comfortable with doing this it may help.Sometimes they can be hard to get to but the main thing I would caution you on is if you disconnect pilot gas line to be very careful when you are threading fitting back into gas valve. Fitting is brass and gas valve is aluminium so its easy to cross thread and cause leaks. Also if this is a millivolt system it will have what is called a basso and if its bad it can cause this problem.Normally if it's a millivolt system there will be no outside source of power, no blower or fan.Hope this helps you. Thanks

My water heater pilot light won't stay lit


I would try cleaning the thermo couple surfaces with some steel wool... Both where the flame contacts the sensor, and the electrical contacts. Even a small increase in voltage may be enough to hold the pilot valve open. Both black, and white soot on the sensor end, can act as an temperature insulator, lowering the output voltage.
As for finding the part numbers for replacement: http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/media/48391/242117_RPPCR01111-Reliance-Parts-Catalog.pdf

I have a 30000 btu rinnai floor heater mod 630530. The pilot wont stay lit . I have installed a new thermo couple . please help


be sure the thermocouple is in the pilot's flame and hold down the pilot lighting button long enough to heat it before trying to operate the heater...20 to 30 seconds should be enough. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad gas valve

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

I have a older Miller furnace(1989)the pilot will stay lit


Replace the thermocouple.

Try this, do you have a butaine stick lighter? Try to heat the thermocouple with it ... see if you can get the main burner to come on. If not - definitely, replace the thermocouple.

Thanks for your question.
