The problem is the thermocoupler. it is the other small tube next to the pilot light. this tube sends a signal to the main valve to let the fuel go through. sometimes you have to change the whole pilot unit.

Pilot wont light


Pilot won't light ...

If we are talking about an OLD TIME "open flame"
PILOT...

There is a lighting sequence... Push & hold the button
put a MATCH to the gas and count to 30 (thirty seconds)...

Will USUALLY get the job done...

The HOLDING for 30 seconds... ALLOWS
time for the THERMOCOUPLE to warm...
assuring the flame is active and RAW GAS is
not escaping (important safety feature)...

MOST common cure for FAILURE to stay lit: REPLACE
that THERMOCOUPLE...

Still carried by most hardware stores... it is important
not to OVER-TIGHTEN the new replacement...

Ideally... you should MEASURE THE LENGHT and
make sure you are buying the right length/size...

Amazon example
Honeywell CQ100A1013 24 Inch Replacement Thermocouple for Gas Furnaces...

eBay example
Universal Thermocouple 24 works with Most Gas Furnaces water heaters...

I buy two...
(I have a SPARE IGNITER or Thermocouple for
every oven, water-heater... heater and patio heater
that keeps my wife happy).

When I try to start my mr. Heater I hold the pilot button down and the starter knob won't do anything? I can't get it to light the pilot, I've only had it a month.


Gas is turned on? Pilot button is in pilot position? Push and hold pilot button down, keep holding it down, push igniter many times, while keep holding down pilot button, keep holding until pilot lights. May take several minutes.

verify the inlet pressure to the heater. those pezioelectric spark lighters are garbage. make sure all manual shut off valves to the heater are open. Pilot tubing may also be blocked

Just moved; gas was turned off now heater wont come on


If this is a newer furnace, you don't light the pilot. It has electronic ignition.

Let me know and I can give you additional instruction.
