Question about Heating & Cooling
I think what you're saying is The Pilot Light is on, but the stove will not come on using the Thermostat or the Manual Switch on the stove.
If that is the case, first check the Control Knob of the stove's Control Valve. Is it in the ON position or the Pilot position. If it's in the Pilot position, turn it to ON. If that's not the case, check the wiring from the the thermostat where it connects to the Control Valve terminals to make sure it isn't loose. One wire should go top the TP terminal and the other to the TPH terminal. Also, check the position of the Manual ON/OFF Switch, it should be in the Remote or Neutral (middle) Middle Position. If some cases, it has to be in the OFF position for the Thermostat to work.
If all of the above checks out OK, check the pilot flame to make sure the flame is touching the Thermopile. If the flame is curling up and away from the Thermopile, the pilot needs cleaning.
And last but, not least, if all else fails to solve the problem, the Thermopile needs to be replaced. As, it's not generating enough millivolts of electricity to open the control valve and allow gas to the burner(s).
Hope this helps you troubleshoot the problem and make any necessary repairs.
Please be kind enough to rate my response to you. Thanks!
