If I understand it correctly, the pilot light will light and burn, but when you turn the Control Knob to the ON position either the burner won't light? My question is, doe the pilot stay lit or does it go out, when you do this.Also, is this a Vented or Vent-free Gas log Stove?

If it's vent-free, the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the Pilot needs cleaning. As, it may be clogged with dust, lint & pet hair and it's sensing that there is not enough oxygen for safe combustion. The other issue tis relative to the pilot assembly, is whether this unit has a millivolt control valve and the Thermopile has failed. The Thermopile controls the opening and closing of the gas valve when you turn the Control Knob or ON/OFF switch to the ON position.

If it's a Vented unit, the same thing applies to the Thermopile.

It would also be wise to check the amount of gas you have in your tank. It may be to low to sustain combustion of the burner(s), but has just enough to keep the pilot burning.

Hope this helps you to Troubleshoot the problem. If it does please leave me a positive approval.
Thanks!

Heater serial # 3687823 was working fine then just stopped. cant get it to light now


if the pilot lights when held but wont stay lit, the thermocouple is shot, local hardware stores sell universal thermocouples. self explanatory to replace. if even when pressing the button the pilot doesn't light there is a blockage in the gas line or control valve. that needs a pro to fix.

There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

I want to light the pilot light for the oven


How old is the stove-- for most ovens these days have electric Glow Ignitors-
Are you sure yours has a gas pilot?

If so-- there has to be a way of pushing in a 'pilot' button, to get the gas to start,
and there has to be a hole or area you can get to the gas burner/pilot, with a match, at the time you are pushing in on the Pilot lite

Let us know what you find--

FL 4 error, Jandy Lite 2 pool heater


I believe you may have a draft restriction and this may stop the start up diagnostics. The draft detection switch is sometimes restricted or weak. Common problem. Tap the gas valve to see if the winter has caused the valve to seat heavily and stick.

Pilot light


When you smell gas...is it all the time? If so, this is dangerous. If it only happens when you're trying to start the oven, no problem. Push the red button and hold it while lighting the pilot. Hold for 30 REAL seconds more. Release. The pilot should stay lit. If not, get a service tech.

Gas meter was changed upon relighting,top burners pilots are on but oven not


under each (the) oven behind a panel, is a red button it may be a different color from time. this has to be pushed and held while the pilot light under the oven floor is lit with a match. it has to be held to allow enough heat to activate the thermocouple, which will keep the pilot on. if this does not work there may be an additional problem
