SOURCE: have an old gas furnace, lit the pilot no problem

Might be the thermostat itself. If your mechanically inclined, then you can jump the wires at the thermostat to see if the thermostat is bad. It will only be 24v, but try to keep from touching the wires themselfs. Use a pair of needle nose pliers with insulated handles. Take off the front cover of the thermostat and you should see the wires. Depending on the wires they have hooked up, normally it is R- Power, W- Heat, Y- A/C, G- Fan. Without touching anything else, take your pliers and put both tips to R and W, hold it there steadily and wait for it to come on, its best to have someone at the furnace to hear it. If it comes on, then the thermostat is bad, if not, I would need more info on the problem. Hope this helps

Why would the flame and pilot keep going out changed the thermocoupler


Remove the cover over the burners so an inspection of the heat exchanger is a bit easier. Take an LED flashlight and a small telescoping mirror and inspect the heat exchangers front section above the burners giving special attention to the two sections of the chamber on either side of the pilot light. Many times there will be a hole in the chamber or a crack that will allow the blower that circulates the air into the duct blow out the pilot light.

If you are handy enough, consider turning off the gas and remove the ribbon burners prior to performing your inspection. The pilot assembly is probably attached to one of the burners. Lay them on the floor in the order in which they install in the furnace as some furnaces have dedicated left and right end burners and most older standing pilot furnaces have the one burner with the pilot mounting bracket.

To remove, many times you gently pull backwards towards the gas manifold while raising up on the front of the burners. Once elevated enough, the burner then slips off the brass spud (orifice) and forward and out.

The next reason the pilot can go out is because the safety 'holding' coil in the gas valve is defective. Its responsibility is to hold open electrically a safety circuit proving the pilot gas is burning so that main gas can flow. The thermocouple generates just enough electricity to hold the safety coil open. Coil bad = pilot out.

If your furnace is over 25 years old, there is a good chance there is a hole or crack.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.



No, the pilot generator or the pilot head itself is the issue. You need a good, solid blue flame across the generator to get enough power to hold the switch open when you let go of the knob. If the pilot flame is week or not aimed across the generator it will not stay lit.



If it is but the generator is old and weak, it will go out as well. If you can see the pilot flame and it is a nice blue color, replace the generator. If it is not, disassemble the pilot and either clean it out or replace it.

Furnace pilot problem


check the pilot gas pressure, might be too weak and blowing out when the blower starts, the clicking noise is the gas valve shutting down when it detecks no pilot flame, that park is normal.

Unable To Keep Pilot Light Lit!


I have a Williams top vent gravity wall furnace (model 5009622) and I had the same problem. I had to take the cover off the furnace -- screw on top and two at the bottom (open the access door and there is one screw on each side) to get to the reset button for the vent safety shutoff system. On my furnace it's on the left side toward the top of the unit. I pressed the little red reset button and it's been working ever since. If your furnace is properly installed and doesn't have bird's nest in the chimney, it should work fine. Good luck!
