SOURCE: FURNACE CYCLING ON AND OFF ..

it sounds like you have a dirty or faulty flame sensor im assuming that you have inshot burners in your furnace the flame sensor will be on the right or the left of the burner assembly opposite the pilot and ignitor it slip through the burner assembly and attaches to the burner it is l shaped steel that is fitted in a porcelin housing and when installed correctly it will be directly in front of one of the inshot burners when the main burner lites the flame touches the sensor and holds the gas valve open until the thermostat is satisfied remove it and sand the the l shaped metal end with 100 grit sandpaper until its clean and shinney then reinstall set thermostat to heat and see if it will stay lit if not get furnace brand model and serial# go to local hvac parts house and pick a new flame sensor if its a rheem i generally pay about ten dollars each my cost chances are cleaning will take care of the problem. good luck! hvac ike

Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

SOURCE: i have a mod gwp10 glow warm heater and the pilot

You have dust in the pilot safety. The system detects low oxygen in the area and weakens the flame on the pilot. Dust imitates the low oxygen. Blow out the ODS or flush it with a tiny drop of rustbuster.

SOURCE: Replaced pilot sensor. Still not lighting furnace. Have a high humming sound for about 2 mins then nothing. Any suggestions? Furnace is about 8 years old

The humming sound might be a stuck blower motor or a motor that won't start due to defective starting capacitor.

The pilot light goes out. When I go to re-light the pilot and turn the temp for vacation to medium the flame goes out again.


The pilot light jet may have got a little bit of dirt or grit in it which is preventing it from keeping alight. Try probing the jet with a fine piece of wire to see it the blockage can be dislodged. You may have to unscrew the jet to clear it by blowing air through it. Make sure gas is turned off first before removing any parts.

The pilot light also has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If flame goes out it shuts gas off to the pilot jet. The thermocouple is bypassed by a switch during the initial ignition and once the thermocouple warms up after a minute or two of holding in the bypass switch, it should maintain the pilot. If, after cleaning, the pilot light keeps going out, it would seem that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced

Pilot won't light


You may have to bleed some more air out of the system.

Your ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and needs to be blown out with air(less than 30 psi).

Your regulator or gas valve may be faulty.

The pilot on my Comfort Glow Gas Logs CLD3924PTA won't stay lit. Can anyone help me with this problem??? Thanks


You must have some kind of flame sensor and it sounds as though it is not working correctly. If the pilot lights and then goes off, I would look there first. Good luck...Lee

My pilot light keeps going out on my comfort glow infrared propane heater what could be making it go out?


The thermocoupler is faulty. It is that bulb that sits i the pilot flame. It controls the gas valve so you won't get any gas if the pilot goes out.. So, the thermocoupler needs to be replaced. Inexpensive and easy fix. Good Luck _Ned_

I have a Comfort Glow propane heater connected a 20lb tank. The pilot has a hard time staying lite but when I do get it lite ang turn the hearter on low it will shut off in a minute or in some cases 20...


If you have a pilot, you have a thermocouple. I would start with the thermocouple. The thermocouple is supposed to be heated by the piolet and to keep the pilot gas on. If it is faulty, the pilot will quit and the heater will not reignite until you light it again. Good luck...Lee

Wont stay lit


If the pilot flame does not touch the thermocouple, the heater will do exactly what you describe.

Get a short piece of copper tubing that will fit snugly over the thermocouple and bend the short piece so that it is in the pilot flame.

the pilot light is operated off a millivolt generator. that is the small tube directly in the pilot flame. its purpose is to generate a small dc current which is connected to the pilot valve inside the main valve. setting the control to pilot opens just the pilot gas supply. when operating normally the millivolt generator keeps a small electromagnet pulled in that keeps the pilot gas supply open. if it don't work the pilot gas supply valve closes. replace the thermocouple.
