SOURCE: I have a Dayton gas heater Model 3E225

Does the main blower fan kick on? Also, if the heater is vented outside via a flue pipe, there may be a small (about 3 or 4 inches in diameter) vent fan that kicks on to ensure the exhaust fumes are evacuated through the flue pipe. If there's a problem with that fan, the burner won't light either.

Pilot won't light on rh-65 vented room heater

The pilot is dirty. You need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the orfice and hood. Make sure to spray for leaks after the gas valve is in the open position.

So much air blowing in the pilot on DV-35-2SG heater won't stay lit

Unfortunately if its wall vented the wind can hit it just right and pop off the pilot this happens on older models a lot check your vent if its too much of an aggravation you may have to relocate it

Poilt is very week and will not open gas valve

The reason the control valve is opening slowly is the the Thermopile needs to be replaced. The Thermopile generates millivolts of electricity from the heat of the pilot flame, which then opens the gas valve when heat is called for. Also, check the pilot flame to make sure it's engulfing the thermopile. If it's not the pilot needs to be cleaned.

The Empire Comfort Systems, Thermopile part number is 672063

are you sure the problem is with the thermocouple? is the pilot sharp and blue? it is unconnon for the magnet in a gas valve to go bad but it does happen. place the thermocouple in the valve and with it in front of you heat it with a match or lighter for 30 sec. now try and light the pilot quickly. if it lights the the problem would be the pilot, if not then the valve. is this a milivolt system or hydrolic t stat.

Heater doesn't start.

Check the length of your thermostat wire. Mine was about 10ft and I experienced the same problem. Reduced it to 6 and the problem was fixed.
