Is there an adjustment to have pilot light stay on after given length if time. Our rev oven pilot takes longer then one minute. About 1 1/2 min


No it is a safety feature that the pilot has to heat up the thermocouple to assure the main gas valve that the pilot is alight and hot.

Help! I have a cozy wall heater model W355F-D. I have never ever lit a pilot light in my life and honestly, Im a little nervous. Can you maybe help me and walk me through it?


You should have control knob on the gas valve that has off, pilot and on , turn knob to pilot and hold in you should have igniter button press this in and it will spark at the pilot you may have to press this a few time to get pilot to light . when pilot is alight still hold knob in for 30 seconds then turn to the on position .

The heater will light then you let the knob go and the gas goes out even after leaving alight for several minutes. I have lubricated the gas controlled and there is full movement it is approximately 12...


Lea, the problem is not the gas control valve. It's the Thermocouple that needs replacing. When the Thermocouple fails, the pilot flame will not stay lit. The Thermocouple is a safety feature that stops the gas, if the pilot flame goes out for any reason. If you've never replaced it before, I'm surprised the original one has last for 10 years.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

I have a readyheater model 65-85 the flame will not stay lit im thinking thermal couple is there a way to test this part? or could it be another problem?


If your pilot light will not stay lit when you release pilot light button then chances are that your thermocouple is bad. Make sure that the tip of thermocouple is directly in line with pilot light. Tip of thermocouple should be cherry red if it is properly placed. If pilot will not stay lit then replace it. If you aren't sure about placement of thermocouple you can heat thermocouple with a seperate heat source. If you do this and pilot light stays lit then reposition thermocouple in pilot flame. If it still won't keep pilot burning then replace thermocouple. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Pilot l.ight will not stay lit


The pilot light jet may have got a little bit of dirt or grit in it which is preventing it from keeping alight. Try probing the jet with a fine piece of wire to see it the blockage can be dislodged. You may have to unscrew the jet to clear it by blowing air through it. Make sure gas is turned off first before removing any parts.

The pilot light also has a thermocouple that allows gas to the pilot light while the flame is burning. If flame goes out it shuts gas off to the pilot jet. The thermocouple is bypassed by a switch during the initial ignition and once the thermocouple warms up after a minute or two of holding in the bypass switch, it should maintain the pilot. If, after cleaning, the pilot light keeps going out, it would seem that your thermocouple is faulty and needs to be replaced

The pilot light of my Vulcan Compact 60 Airconditioning unit can be lit but will not stay alight.


Hi.

Air duct must be checked. Poor ventilation is common cause for the problem.

If ventilation is OK, then the other possible cause is a defective flame sensor. The flame sensor is connected in parallel with the valve solenoid. For safety reasons testing must be done by a technician.

To get a quote on repair ring the service number listed on the user manual.

Light pilot on Royal deep fryer. Pilot will not stay lit. Second fryer has larger pilot have no trouble keeping it lit. How can I adjust the pilot so that it will stay lit?


there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple
