Essentially all gas devices regardless of which gas used, are equipped with a thermocouple that monitors the pilot light's condition and if it fails, it will not permit the main flame to light or the pilot light to stay lit. In your case, it may be that the TC failure also prevents the lighting of the pilot light.

If the egnitor won't work will the pilot light with a match or lighter on a pro-com 300H P A


If you in fact have button to push and hold, that indicates the system has a standing pilot with a thermocouple. Usually a standing pilot does not have an ignitor. I say USUALLY because I do not know all systems by heart. At any rate, I have to assume your system has a manual igniter like a barbeque pit and you push and hold the button while pushing the ignitor manually then release the button after 30 seconds or so of burning.......

IF THIS IS THE CASE, you more than likely have a bad thermocouple. The thermocouple when heated generates electricity that holds the safety coil in that is held in when you depress the button. If it fails to hold in by the thermocouple, the likely culprit is the aforementioned thermocouple HOWEVER, there is a slight possibility that the coil internal of the gas valve is defective if it does it AGAIN with a new thermocouple installed.

I have a Vanguard wall heater model VN18TB that will not stay lit and the electric igniter won't work


The ignitor is battery operated. Remove the button and replace the AAA battery wit the (+) going INTO the body (-) against the button.

The heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shutoff system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature for vent-free room heaters. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not enough fresh air. If the heater will not stay lit with plenty of fresh air available - this may be faulting. Likewise, a mispositioned thermocouple will not sense a flame and fail, too.

We have a fairly new heater. went to turn on the pilot light and it won't ignite. what do you think is wrong? gas has been turned on before igniting


Sometimes it takes a few seconds for gas to reach the pilot. When you place the thermostat knob/gas control in the pilot position you must then depress it (push it down and hold it down). Wait a few seconds while holding it down, then press the ignitor button with your other hand while continuing to keep the thermostat knob depressed. You may have to hold the knob down and press the ignitor several times. You should see a spark at the pilot if the ignitor is working properly. Continue to hold the knob down for 30 seconds after the pilot lights, then release the knob, it will pop up & you can then rotate it to lo/med/hi and the heater will come on.,

Can we relight the pilot manually or do we need an electronic lighter? Ours appears to have gone out. Also please verify that what we're looking at IS the pilot light! Thank you!


if it is a permant pilot then you can light it manually , if is a hot surface ignitor then you will have to replace it , some electronic ignition has to be replaced , as it self lights .

Hope this helps you

The fan will blow but not in heat mode. The gas heater sounds like it wants to work but there is no heat.


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The problem is probably with the ignition. Check the pilot if its a standing pilot or the hot surface ignitor if it has a HSI ignition If you ohm the hotsurface ignitor and it doesn't show resistance the HSI is shot. If its a standing pilot try lighting the pilot if it lites and doesn't stay lit then the thermocouple could be bad its the rod that sits in the pilot flame easily replaced with a universal replacement that can be found at most hardware stores.

New gas water heater pilot light will not ignite


Hi .. if this is a brand new heater, then you probably need to have the gas line bled. This means getting all the air out of the gas line feeding the burner. This can be done by constantly trying to light the burner or poilot . or it can be bled down by a HVAC tech.

Sounds like the thermocouple is bad , if , your holding the ignitor pressed long enough . Rating of 1 - 10 , this would be a 4-5 . Don't replace the pilot assembly , just the thermocouple .
