SOURCE: while burning gas suddenly shuts off

More than likely it is the thermo couple.

It is a small tube at the end of a thin copper line.

It typically mounts in front of your pilot flame. The copper line runs back to you control.

When heated by the pilot it tells the control valve that there is a fire thus allowing the gas to flow to the burner. It is a safety feature to keep you from filling you house up with unburned gas.

When not functioning correctly it stops the gas to the burner.
You should be able to pick up a replacement at any big box or hardware store.
Some have different mounting styles. Best to remove the old one and take it with you.

SOURCE: my fireplace pilot lite wont stay lite

There is a valve which you are bypassing when you press the pilot button. It is usually a sealed hydralic valve which holds the gas on as long as a flame is on the bulb. This expands the fluid and keeps the gas valve open. If the bulb moved and is not in the flame, or near enough, it will not stay on. Also since it sat for a year the internal workings of the valve could have "gummed" up. You need to replace the valve. You did not mention the name or model of the unit. Do a search with your units brand name followed by heater followed by parts. This should return dealers who can supply the part you need. Let me know if you need anymore help.

Pilot lites and stays on, but goes off when you turn it to on. Burner won't lite


It sounds like the thermocouple for that heater powers both the pilot valve coil and the main burner valve coil. Either the thermocouple is too weak to power both or the main valve coil is shorted out. Try replacing the thermocouple first. If if it still will not start, I would look hard at the main gas control valve.

PS. Sometimes if you clean the thermocouple with fine grit emery cloth it will put out a little more until you can replace it.

Good Luck.

Heater won't stay lit after button release . Burner lites and heat builds but as soon as the valve button is realesed burner goes out. Even holding the button in for three minutes it still will go out.


Hey, make sure the flame is shooting past the thermocouple, this is what tells the gasvalve to say Ok , now you have a pilot lite, you can now send 24-volts to the main gas valve to open! If not , then you need to blow out the oxygen sensor and clean the pilot tube orrifice, that should do the trick...

Cleaning lady accidently sprayed windex near our 6 yr old gas GE profile stove. It now makes a clicking noise. What should I do.


Hello there:
the clicking sound that you are hearing is the igniotor trying to lite the pilot s but the pilot lite is out what you can do is first lite all of the pilot lites manually and then start the burners normally as you would and now they should work ok
Also if you contact you local gas/ electric company they will come to your home and lite this stove for no charge ok?
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Canot locate remote swich or instructions how to get water heater pliot lit on 1984 itasca motorhome


look for the gas valve and on the top of it there should be a valve that has either off, pilot, or on. Turn it to pilot and depress the knob. At the same time follow the small tube that comes of the valve and at the end of it is the pilot burner. Hold a match to the pilot burner and when it lites keep on holding the knob down for about 20 seconds. If you can release the valve and the pilot stays lite then you can turn the knob on the gas valve to on.

Ignition switch is a solid culprit. the contacts get worn out or even "stretched " due to "Forced" turning of the key. You know the part where you try to turn the key past the stop point.

Gas furnace wont stay lite


I'm a little confused by your terminology. You are saying you have a pilot lite and electric heat strips? Are you possibly meaning burners? Is the heater running for 2 hours straight without shutting off? how cold is it there? Lastly what temperature do you have the thermostat set at and how close does it get to the temp. before it shuts off?
