Is there supposed to be power to the unit? I was told that there was no power needed. sounds strange considering that there are wires involved. where does power hook up if needed?

First of all, I'm assuming that your heater has a pilot and not self ignition.You will need a jumper wire ( 16" of wire with an alligator clip on each end)attach one end to the terminal on the gas valve that the red wire from the pilot generator is connected to ( pilot gen. is the thing the pilot flame touches).
Now attach the other end of the jumper to the terminal where the wire from the connects to the knob where you set the water temp).
NOTE:
JUMPING BYPASSES ALL BUILT IN SAFETY DEVICES AND IS FOR TEST LEAVE THE JUMPER CONNECTED TO RUN THE HEATER FOR HEATING PURPOSES!!!!

    run a wire from terminal on lighting assembly to high limit switch on top right of the heater.

We have a teledyne gas furnace whose pilot won't stay lit. Any ideas?

Is this a standing pilot,or pilot always on.

If so a bad thermocouple will cause pilot to go out.

Thermocouple is a small copper tube running from the pilot light area to the gas valve. easy to replace.
