Old heaters that have a "standing" pilot light that burns all of the time use a device called a thermocouple. The thermocouple sits in the flame of the pilot and when heated by the pilot, produces a very small amount of electricity (approx 30 mV) which the heater interperets as proof that the pilot is burning and indicating that it is okay to turn the main burner on. The thermocouple is a part that wears out and when it fails causes the exact problem that you are describing.

Wall mounted 3 grate gas space heater: VIN # 41201. ser. # 1410915. Piolet light won't remain lit to be able to light grates. Also need control knob (if avail) for same model.


your pilot has dust in it. Use a drinking straw and blow air across (not into) the pilot opening. this will remove the small particles of dust that are stopping up the membrane inside the opening. THis will make your pilot flame bluer and hotter and keep the thermocouple hot enought to produce enought magnetism to hold the gas valve open.

Piolet light wont stay lit. I changed the thermocoupler and no change


On some pilots there are small holes in the pilot tip for air to enter right about where the tip is attached to the pipe. These sometimes get clogged with dust or lint and will not let the pilot burn because it doesn't have the right fuel/air mix.

I dont know how to light the piolet


there should be an access panel on the bottom of the heater, it should open easily, don't force it,you'll see the gas valve on which is a knob, it says off, on, pilot,there also should be lighting instructions inside the panel, if not, find where you light the pilot, then find the pilot on, it will be a button on the valve or when you turn valve to pilot it will push in,now turn valve to pilot,lite pilot,push button/valve,hold 15 SEC

Piolet lights,turn control knob to on position turn thermostat to call,it starts up full flame runs for approx 30 sec flame slowley loweers then totaly out


This sounds like you have a split in your venting, the reason for the flame to snuff out like that would be that its getting exhaust cycling back into the burn chamber. Test this by taking the door off and running the unit, if the flame stays and doesn't go out then start looking at the venting, either its split or clogged.

The heater piolet light goes out when you move to use the heater


There is a thermo coupler that shuts the gass off if it is ba. It is locacted just in front of the pilot flame It has to sense the pilot to let the gss through. It is an easy fix and inexpensive.

The piolet light will not stay lit on a GE Profile Smart Water heater.


Make sure there is not a direct draft hiting heater. this wil always blow out flame.
It could be thermo-cuppling. If this is bad,it wont leave gas come in to keep piolet light lite. hope this helps. :)

Pilot light wont lit up


Change The Thermostat Cause If Your Getting Gas But The Water Heater Doesn't Detect The Heat It Will Close The Valve. When Lighting You Hold The Button Down For About 30 seconds so the thermostat will detect flame and stay lit. Check To Make Sure The Thermostat Is Where It Should Be. Heres A Picture Of What It Will Look Like.
