  1. Turn off the gas supply to the heater.
  2. Locate the pilot assembly on the heater. It is usually located near the bottom of the unit.
  3. Remove the pilot shield, which is typically a metal or plastic cover that protects the pilot assembly.
  4. Locate the electrode, which is a small metal rod that is located near the pilot burner.
  5. Adjust the position of the electrode so that it is directly in front of the pilot burner, with a distance of 1/8 inch to 3/16 inch between the electrode tip and the pilot flame.
  6. Replace the pilot shield and turn the gas supply back on.
  7. Test the pilot flame to ensure that it is stable and blue in color.

Empire dv-25. Pilot lights fine, good blue flame. Burner rail won't light or stay lit - sometimes it starts to catch. Orifice was removed and was clean - no debris. Not sure where to look next? T.Y.

Do you have an electrical meter that measures millivolts?This sounds like a millivolt system. The pilot orfice and pilot burner need to be clean so they are producing a hot flame, hitting the pilot generator to create enough millivoltage to open the main valve coil. If you know how to jumper the thermostat circuit try it, Millivolt systems will give you problems if there are loose connections or to much resistance through a switch. Again, there could be some type of safety switch that is wired into the thermostat circuit to prevent the heater from coming on if it isn't safe. Call a pro if its not obvious

Pilot is on, why do gas logs not ignite?

Make sure the control knob was turned to on. If so check control switch,wall switch or remote setting.

My pilot light will not stay on. when you go to turn the knob to keep it on it just goes out.

My recommendation is that you will have to measure the millivolts created by the flame on the thermocouple, under most circumstance the pilot will not stay on if it doesn't stay greater than about 20mv if it does reach or exceed 20mv then the gas valve that recieves the mv has an internal componant that is out and should be replaced (never repair the gas valve). Hope that helps!

Poilt is very week and will not open gas valve

The reason the control valve is opening slowly is the the Thermopile needs to be replaced. The Thermopile generates millivolts of electricity from the heat of the pilot flame, which then opens the gas valve when heat is called for. Also, check the pilot flame to make sure it's engulfing the thermopile. If it's not the pilot needs to be cleaned.

The Empire Comfort Systems, Thermopile part number is 672063

If I can be of further help, please let me know through the leave a comment link.

My empire wall furnace does not ignite. It has gas flowing because the pilot is light, i have changed the thermostat and wired it two different ways in case I reversed them. What is next? Could it be the...

It could be several things: Is the Control Knob turned from Pilot to ON? If that is the case, wait a few minutes after turning it to ON. That will allow the Thermopile to heat up sufficiently. Be sure the flame is touching the Thermopile. If everything looks correct turn up your Thermostat to higher than the ambient room temperature and see if the burners light. Remember to turn your Wall Thermostat down to the lowest temperature setting before turning the knob from Pilot to ON.

FYI - That Wall Furnace does not have a Thermocouple. It uses a Thermopile instead to generate millivolts of electricity to open the gas valve and maintain the pilot flame.

If it is the Thermopile, you can order it directly from Empire Comfort Systems, as well as download your Owners Manual at www.empirecomfort.com
