If you are talking about the pilot flame being low it probably needs to be cleaned. you would need to shut off the gas to the fryer first. Then remove the gas tubing from the pilot assembly. inside of the pilot is a orifice. Looks like a tiny thimble. Remove it and clean the hole in the orifice. (Very Small hole) Reassemble and test.

There is an adjustment screw on the main gas valve, usually under a cover screw. It will be near where the small pipe that goes to the pilot light.

Check and clean the thermopile, it is the cylindrical piece of metal standing behind the pilot assembly.Try also to tighten its wiring connections to the gas valve and high limit.If it does not correct the problem, replace the thermopile.

SOURCE: I have a pitco frialator and the pilot will light

Check if the unit receives the right amount of fuel as stated on its nameplate, if it does, check all wires for loose connections, Milli volt wont pass on loose wiring. If this does not correct the problem, you have to replace the gas valve, the main valve coil may be shorted that's why the pilot is shut when main valve is energized.

I have a VC Wonderfire model 2610. The pilot flame is perfect blue on both sides... however, when I hit the switch for the main burner to come on...the pilot goes out... any ideas ???


You may have moved the safety sensor or pilot flame tip. The pilot light heats a wire. The wire is the safety sensor. The wire has to be clean and in the pilot flame near the flame tip.

I have a Mr Heater infra red propane wall heater. My problem is it turns itself off (pilot light) after running for an hour or two. I have no problem getting it turned back on but for some reason it d


Your pilot flame should be blue with a small yellow tip, and it should cover the thermocouple (a small rod in front of the pilot light). If the flame is too small and doesn't cover the thermocouple, it may be adjusted too low, or you have low gas pressure or you have a leak in your gas line coming in to the heater. If the flame looks like a lazy yellow flame, you are probably not getting enough air to the flame. Check that your air openings around the pilot are not clogged up. If the flame looks like a waving blue flame then you probably have excessive draft at the pilot. If the pilot flame looks good and covers the thermocouple, then the thermocouple might be bad. Best of luck. I hope I have helped.

Why won't the pilot light stay lit?


You have a "pilot generator" that sits in the flame of the pilot light. This generates a low voltage output from the flame of the pilot light. This voltage goes to the gas valve and tells the valve that the pilot is lit and to keep the pilot gas line open.
In almost all cases replacing the pilot generator will resolve the issue . They run about $60-$75.
Other causes may be the gas valve itself or a short in the safety loop, in either case should be looked at by a pool tech.

The pilot light goes out. When I go to re-light the pilot and turn the temp for vacation to medium the flame goes out again.


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

Pilot light won't light the low flame or stay on


If the pilot light will light at all but not have a good strong flame I would remove pilot assembly and clean it thourghly,being careful not to damage pilot orifice. Reinstall pilot and seeif you have any improvement. If pilot still won't stay lit I would replace thermocouple being careful to make sure top inch or so is in pilot flame. Hope this helps. Thanks

Floor furnace pilot won't stay on.


Change the flame sensor (Thermocouple) Then go ahead and fire it up. If the flame sensor is not sensing the flame you will be able to light the pilot then everything will shut off. There is a way to agjust the pilot but 99.9% of the time the adjustment is ok, Specially with a floor furnace so change the thermocouple and you will be ok. You can get one at Ace, Home Depot Lowes, or a local appliance store

Cozy heater 35000 btu pilot light goes out every 4 days


The thermocouple needs to get red hot. If the pilot flame is too low or too high or if it is not pointed on the thermocouple well, it won't stay hot enough. If the pilot flame is too low, a draft caused by opening a door could blow it out. If correcting this doesn't fix it, it could be a bad thermocouple or control. The factory assembly on these heaters is not the best.
