How do i light the pilot?


Turn the Gas Control Knob inside the heater compartment from OFF to PILOT. Push in the knob and hold it, at the sametime push the ignitor button (will probably be a Red button). Once the pilot lights, continue to hold the Control Knob down for one minute. Then ease off of it. If the pilot stays lit, turn the Control Knob to the ON position. The burner should light, if the Thermostat is set higher than the ambient temperature in the house. If the Ignitor button doesn't work, you can match light the pilot. Just be careful and follow the instructions above, once it's lit.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

How do I lite a wall room heater


First, turn off the gas valve for at least 5 min and ventilate the room. Most wall heaters are lit the same as a water heater. Find a red button to push or turn the gas valve knob to the pilot position. While pressing the red button or the gas valve knob, hold a match to light the pilot flame. After it lights continue holding the knob for one or two minutes. If the flame goes out when you release the knob the thermocouple is probably bad.

You have a bad thermocouple. It is a very small diameter copper tube that goes from the gas valve to the pilot assembly. They come in various lengths from 18" to 48" and better hardware stores that sell heaters will have one. It's OK to purchase a longer one if you don't know the exact length. One end is screwed into the gas valve and the other end screws into the pilot assembly. Make sure the flame hits it well.

Wall Heater


If you have already changed out the thermocouple and the pilot goes out when the burner goes out, it leads to reason that the gas valve has a weak magnet or that the pilot is dirty. The cheapest thing would be to remove the pilot assembly and clean out the orifice. If it still drops out, you will need to replace the gas valve.

Re Williams 3003622 Heater Please advise how to ignite pilot light.


You will first need to turn the control knob to pilot. Then depress the control knob button and hold it. Then press the push button piezo igniter several times until pilot lights or open pilot inspection cover and manually light pilot with match/lighter. You may need to hold the control knob for at least a minute. Then release the control knob and if the pilot stays lit then turn the control knob to on. If it does not light then repeat the process again.

Ventless gas wall heater. Pilot lights but wont stay lit.


The thermocouple may be worn out.
The thermocouple may have come loose from the valve.
The ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and may need to be cleaned with air(less than 30psi)
The valve or regulator may be faulty.

Pilot Light will not remain lit


Try this, turn the black gas ****, on top of the control box, to the Pilot position. Set the temp. control on the front of the box to the desired temp. Then, hold a match or whatever else you use to light it, next to the end of the pilot, then, while holding the match to the pilot, press the reset button on top. When the pilot lights, continue to hold the reset button down for about 1 minute. Then, after a minute, turn the gas **** to the ON position, then it should remain on.
