On the gas valve there is an adjustment for the pilot it usually is a machine head type screw if you remove it there is a limit adjustment for the pilot under that. It will not be the flat cap type screw and it will not be a black plastic inner screw to adjust, it should be a metal brass screw you adjust. Not trying to throw to much info at you just making sure you get the right screw to adjust the pilot. The flat metal cap cover screw with the black plastic screw underneath is the pressure regulation adjustment, so it is critical not to touch it.

I have a kozy world knw321 and pilot light is to high can this be adjusted i have tried blowing it out other heaters are burning fine but this one is burning to high don't know how to adjust it

Yes,pilot should be adjustable, but problem may be dirty accumulation on pilot fixture. With gas SUPPLY off, remove the grill and clean the pilot orifice and anything that might block air getting to the flame.
Check the hole where gas comes out of the pilot for accumulation of deposits. DON'T enlarge this hole beyond its original size.
On adjusting, you look at the gas valve and find a cap or screw that is identified PILOT adj.The actual adjustment screw is sometimes under the top cap or screw. If you're not sure, call someone who is knowledgeable.
Turning this slightly will adjust flame. don-ohio

How to adjust pilot lite on a furnace

Select thermostat to off. Take front upper panel off of furnace. Looking at gas valve you should see a flat head or straight slot screw. This is the cap to access the adjustment. Look at the body of the gas valve real close. You may need to put on your glasses or use magnifying glass. It should say pilot in very small raised letters. Remove the cap. Look down into access hole and you will see the adjustment screw. It is a nylon screw so be careful not to strip it out. Place the correct screw driver, should be a small phillips or straight head. Turn gas valve to pilot and depress. Light pilot. While holding down, adjust nylon screw clockwise until flame envelopes 3/8 to 1/2 inch around thermocouple. Replace cap. Select heat and verify pilot stays lit. If the flame doesn't stay lit most likely your thermocouple is defective. You can purchase at your local hardware or Home Depot. Length doesn't matter.The thermocouple is heated and sends a DC signal back to the gas valve. There is another screw cap on the gas valve that adjusts gas pressure. Do not try to adjust the gas pressure to the gas valve because you need a special instrument (manometer) to adjust pressure. This device measures the water colume of the gas. A qualified technician would adjust this to 3.5" WC. for natural gas or 11" for propane.

I replaced my thermal couple and now too much gas at the pilot, what can I do...Art

Art - Just replacing the Thermocouple would not,/should not increase the length of the pilot flame significantly. Perhaps, it had been low for so long (prior to replacing the Thermocouple) it just seems unusually high (long). You didn't mention whether you're using Natural Gas or Propane Gas. But, the length of a Natural Gas Pilot Flame is normally 2" to 3" long. A Propane gas pilot flame is normally 3/4" to 1 1/2" long. If your heaters pilot flame is falling within these parameters for the specific gas type, you're fine.

Hope this helped you.

Pilot light too big, how do we adjust pilot light on a Vanguard KV1800?

There is no adjustment for a Pilot Flame's Length on a Vent-free Gas Appliance. However, if you're using Natural Gas and it's a Natural Gas Heater, the normal length of the pilot flame is 2 to 2 1/2".
If it's a Propane Gas Heater and the pilot flame is as long as previously stated, you probably have a pressure problem from your tank. Contact your Propane provider to have them check the pressure on their tank regulator.

The pilot light goes out randomly. Why? Can the flame size be increased? I don't know that that is the problem but am wondering if there is some adjustment that can be made to keep the flame burning....

I'm not aware of flame adjustment. However, if it has a thermocouple make sure it is tight in the gas valve or the thermocouple may be bad. The flame heats the thermocople and this generates a milivolt charge that has an electro-magnetic force that holds the pilot valve open. Also check for a blocked flue.

My hot water has gone off. It was working this morning and the pilot light has not gone out. How can I check for other explainations?

The pilot light is working so you know you have gas but you also know that the gas is not coming on. The pilot flame should be bright blue with the tip of the flame having a ting of yellow. A yellow flame is caused by a dirty pilot tube tip. Split flame is caused by dirt in the pilot tube. If the flame is not hot enough it will not tell the thermocoupler to turn the gas on. If the thermostat has not been moved and is still at the correct setting then I would suspect the thermocouple is bad. The thermocouple is mounted right next to the pilot light. It senses if the flame is hot enough for the gas to come on. If the pilot flame is not touching the coupler then it will not allow the gas to be turned on to the burner. Check the thermocoupler and see if the flame is touching the probe on the end. If not adjust it until the pilot flame is touching the coupler. If the flame is properly adjusted then replace the thermocoupler but shut off the gas supply before doing so. It will look like this. 0ec43e2.png

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?

Empire DV-215 Low Flame Issue

Either a restriction in the gas train, low gas pressure or a bad gas valve. Check the pressure on the gas line when on pilot and again when the burners are running. Depending upon what type of gas it runs on, you should have at least 4" W.C. if Natural Gas and 10" W.C. if Propane. If gas pressures test good and all valves are open, you are looking at replacing the gas valve.
