My two year old empire wall unit...looks like a DV-215 propane unit. The pilot won't stay lit....I have two other units same installation year and no trouble!


The pilot thermocouple is most likely defective, replace it, they are very cheap to buy. Check with a local appliance repair for the part.

How do you turn the pilot light back on? This is an older model, probably about 10 years old or so.


Move the gas valve knob to the PILOT position and press down on the knob. You will be pressing down on a spring loaded safety magnet. Now light the pilot and keep holding down the knob till the thermocouple gets hot enough to produce electrical current and hold that spring loaded magnet in. This is your safety device. If the heat gets too hot the furnace has a fuse in line with that magnet.
When the pilot stays lit by itself without you having to hold down the button then advance the knob to the ON position. Then go to the wall thermostat and turn on the heater.

GWN10T pilot blows itself out


You must clean the pilot regularly to ensure it burns properly. Use a small can of air for cleaning computers and blow air through the pilot to remove dust and small particles that accumulate in the pilot barrel. Use several burst being that it is 2 years old and has not been blown out. THe manual references cleaning the pilot in the maintenance section.

It sounds like the thermocoupler is either not adjusted into the flame properly, or you may have gotten a bad one. The thermocouple is the main thing that makes the pilot work.

Rinnai wall heater won't lite.


You may need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the pilot orifice. If the pilot does not stay lite you may need a new thermocouple. Good Luck.
