When burner goes out, so does pilot

Looking for wiring schematics on tk45. When fire goes out, pilot goes with it. This was bought from auction buy one of our customers. I'm not sure if they tried to wire it or what.

If the fire is going out and the pilot is going with it you may have a problem with the gas valve or it could be as simple as you may be getting too much air which causes too much extinction pop which will make pilot go out on occasion. You may need to adjust your primary air.

Desa heater


For (fire) safety, there is usually a thermostat that will turn off the gas if pilot light goes out.

So when you try to light the pilot you will have keep press & hold the pilot gas supply for at least 10 sec until the thermostat is heated up. Then only when the pilot light stays on continually, can you turn on the burner.

Forget about changing to a High pressure regulator!

Hi there.
The thermostat will only shut down burner flame but not pilot flame.
Try tightening all wiring connections.
By using an ohm meter, check the continuity across the hi limit terminals when the pilot goes off, your hi limit may be tripping prematurely causing pilot flame to shut down.
Regards.

Gordon-Ray overhead radiant heater that won't go into high fire


Is this a standing pilot unit. So when it goes into high
fire is it just actually going from pilot to burner on ?
If this is the case and the burner shuts down, then
it is the flame sensor.

If it is two stage heat and 1st stage is fine, then when
second stage comes on and goes out, I would be looking at the supply of gas.

You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

No, do not mess with wiring. If the gas does not ignite and the pilot goes out, The thermocoupler is faulty. This is the probe that should be sitting at the tip of the pilot flame. When it gets hot enough it allows the main gas valve to open when you put it to ON position. If the pilot light goes out, It shuts off the gas for safety. Summary, Bad thermocoupler. Easy, inexpesive repair. Let me know please, if you need further help.

Gas boiler won't stay lit!


The burners and pilot need to be cleaned.
Turn off gas and power, remove the burners and pilot. Clean with a brass wire brush. (Steel wire can be used but very carefully) Remove all rust dirt etc. reinstall and it should fire right up.

Water heater pilot light


it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
