Water heater pilot light

I have a Reliance self cleaning gas 808. The directions for re-lighting the pilot light are on the tank itself but no diagram as to WHERE the pilot light is located! I took the cover off & got down on the floor but can't see it. Any ideas how I can find it or where to get a diagram?

thanks

I don't understand, you say the pilot won't light but it does light when the stove lights?

Walk me through the procedure step by step.

Check with Ebay seller s.a.w.inc for available thermocouples. If that doesn't solve the problem the valve unit will likely need replaced.

SOURCE: kozy world propane wall heater. The pilot light will work

Sounds like you have a common problem with infrared heaters. They are very dust sensitive and they will light and then go out when they are dusty. If you have already tried to blow it out at home you need to take the heater to your propane dealer who will take the heater apart and blow it out correctly. They will then hook it up to their gas line and make sure that the problem is fixed. I hope that you haven't blown up into the bottom of the heater where the gas line is connected. There is a diaphragm up in there and if you blow into it you risk messing it up to where it won't work at all.

If you can jump out the thermostat connections on the gas valve and the heater still does not turn on, check to make sure the thermopile is well into the pilot and getting hot. If it is, replace it. That is the safety for the main burner.It will have two wires wrapped with metal and note which terminals it is connected to on the gas valve.

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!

Kozy world propane wall heater pilot will not light


This can be caused by several things:

1. The inline gas valve running to the the heater is OFF. Turn the valve ON.

2. The gas control knob on the heater is not exactly in the PILOT position. Unless the knob bottoms
out and you feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you. It's not exactly
in the PILOT Position. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds
to allow the Thermocouple to full heat.

3. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned, as do the burners.*

4. The LP Gas Tank is empty or to low to maintain te proper gas pressure.

* Here is a link to a demonstration on how to properly clean the pilot & burners.

Full tank, igniter clicks, i hear the flam come on but it wont light. What to do?


I am not sure which flame you hear light. The pilot light flame or the burner flame? In any event, the burner and the pilot assembly need to be cleaned. Insects love to build nest in these types of heaters, when they're not in use. When that happens, the pilot and/or the burner get's clogged.

A shop vac with a hose and brush attachment work well in cleaning the heater parts. Canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) does well in blowing out the pilot tip and around the entire pilot assembly.

Be sure to turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose and remove the tank, before attempting to clean the unit. When you replace the tank and reconnect the hose, be sure to open the gas tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion slow).

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Coleman heater model 5445c700 propane camp heater wont light. It did work fine. When I hold the knob in the light position you can hear gas but it barely ignites then goes out. I've tried new gas and...


If you're using a 20lb propane tank (Gas Grill Tank), that may be the problem. Turn off the propane tank at the tank valve and disconnect it from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reattach the heater hose to the tank. Turn the propane tank valve on very,very slowly until it's all the way open. Try lighting your heater now. If the pilot flame height returned to normal, that was the problem.

FYI - The Thermocouple has nothing to do with the length of the pilot flame. It's a safety feature that stops the gas if the pilot flame goes out for any reason.

Hope that solves your problem. Please let me know.

On my patio heater the pilot light will light but goes out as soon as I release it, even after holding it down a long time. I can't get it to stay on to light the heater.


Check that the pilot light is directed at the thermocouple, a copper 'tube' that heats up when the pilot light is lit. You should be able to see a copper coloured small tube that the pilot light is directed at - if the pilot flame is not heating that tube then the main burner will not light.

If the thermocouple is being heated correctly, then it could be a fault with the thermocouple itself (can be replaced) or the gas valve.

If the pilot flame is not heating the end of the thermocouple you should be able to adjust its position so that the pilot flame is directed at it more accurately

Can't get propane heater to lite


Not enough information to solve the problem correctly but I'll take a guess at it......

This heater requires a 100lb propane tank (approx. 25gal) with 1/2" or larger piping to deliver the correct volume of gas to the heater. If you are using a smaller tank (like a 10gal) or the piping is not the correct size you will not get enough gas to the heater to light the pilot. Also you should have a regulator set at 11" to 14" of water column installed between the tank and the heater. If the tank is connected directly to the heater you may have damaged the internal regulator in the heater.
