    The thermocouple is fine.. pilot flame is large enough...its not brand new so the auto clean idea may not be the right one and the delayed ignition does not happen all the time the owner says ...one day it will be good the next not so much

Check the thermopile if it is receiving enough heat from the pilot.
if your fryer is a new model one and little explosion happens during the start up, that is the new self cleaning burner feature which cleans burner face during start up.

My kozy world wall heater makes a boom pop when it lites. It's like a delay in lighting and then it lites.


If the furnace made a clicking noise trying to turn on and then makes the BANG noise at the furnace, it’s most likely a delayed ignition. Imagine a room full of gas and then someone decides to light a match. Big problem. That's what’s happening in your furnace if the ignition of gas is delayed.

A variety of issues can delay the combustion of that gas. So the gas builds up in the furnace until—BOOM—it ignites, causing a mini-explosion. This can harm the heat exchanger, which is very expensive part to replace. Some causes of delayed ignition includes:

1. Dirty burners
2. Flames are lifting away from the burner outlet due to too much primary air
3. Too much gas

If you're handy enough to understand what I've said then burners can be cleaned/replaced, and primary air can be adjusted. With some units gas flow can be adjusted as well; other times the gas valve will need to be replaced.

If you've no idea what I've described, GET HELP before you ruin the heat exchanger and have a more expensive problem on your hands or worse...

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

Delayed oven ignition


see the next steps and proceed with common sense:God bless you

Fuel Type
If this is a new installation make sure the gas valve has been properly adjusted for the type of gas. Lp and natural gas use different orfices and pressures. A conversion kit is available.

Burner
The burners may need to be cleaned. There are small holes that allow gas through holes that are ignited by the igniter. These holes can become clogged up. You can usually clean these with a toothpick or small wire, watch the video. If it is the oven burner and you have a small flame or it does not stay lit check the video on troubleshooting a gas range.

Gas Valve
The gas valve rarely fails but this can. If the gas burners are clean and the gas valve is properly adjusted replace the gas valve. This should be done by a professional. Leaks can be very dangerous and also the gas pressure needs to be adjusted for the type of fuel you are using.

Hi I have a pitco sg14 fryolator. At the time of firing off main burner there is a false ignition at start of heating cycle of oil in tank and there is a woosh sound that shakes front door so basically the...


for the latest design of pitco frialator, the manufacturer added what they called the self-cleaning burner system.during start-up, ignition is delayed so that dust accumulating in the burner face will be removed once the gas build up on burner chamber ignites, it creates a weak explosion like sound.the next time you hear that during start up, the unit is cleaning its own burner, no need to worry.

The oven has a delayed ignition and when it lights, it does so with an explosive pop. Any ideas?


The pilot igniter could be dirty or have build-up. Fumes build up a little bit before the igniter has a chance to ignite

The ignitors/burners need to be cleaned properly.

Build up of grease, dirt, rust, mineral deposits, etc can cause improper gas flow resulting in a delayed ignition. That causes a build up of gas and the delayed ignition ignites it all at once, and you have your WHOOMP mini explosion.

Explosive Ignition


Check the alignment of the igniter to burner. It should be in the flame of the burner but to one side or just below. Does the igniter glow about 15 seconds prior to the gas valve opening or just a second or two. The igniter should glow 10-15 seconds prior. If the temperatures outside are unseasonably cold, you could be experiencing a gas regulator condition. If so, as the temperature rises, the condition would lessen. Call your gas company to get the regulator tested and gas pressure checked.
