There is a flame sensor on these units that senses that the flame is lit....it can become defective over time...it should be right on the housing right where the flame comes out of the nozzle and should have 2 leads coming off it...you can contact the manufacturer to find where and who carries parts for your model.

What would make our Rinnia Glo0Ray gas heater stop lighting?


Problem could be the thermocouple burnt out .FSD
(fail safe device) normally you push the button in and the pilot light or flame is ignited,this flame heats the thermocouple that generates a small voltage that holds the gas valve open.
if the thermocouple is burnt out or not set correctly in the flame or the pilot flame is to small , as you say when you release the button it goes out, looks like you need a new thermocouple.
The fan needs electricity. Is it pugged in or connected to a power source? No blown fuses? On/off switch on? Hope that helps.

I have an old belling farmhouse cooker the hob works fine but the oven isn't igniting manually or by the electric ignition The timer is manual and is stuck on the red patch I can't seem to shift it ...


, push in and turn the control knob to the full on position (large flame symbol). If your hob has an ignition switch on the facia, press it in until your burner lights. • Hold the control knob in for 15 seconds then release. If the burner fails to light within this time, release the control knob and wait one minute before attempting to re-ignite.
or
Push in the control knob and after a couple of seconds press the ignition switch. • Hold the control knob in for 15 seconds then turn to desired heat, If the burner fails to light within this time, release the control knob and wait one minute before attempting to re-ignite.

Gas ignites with lever ignition but when lever is released gas cuts out


I can't tell what kind of appliance you're talking about.... but, here's what I know.. This "lever" you're talking of kind of stumps me, but try, after the gas lights, to hold the lever in the position you had when you lit the flame. Hold it on for about a minute... then release it... and see if the flame will remain going. If you can't keep the flame going "no matter what", you probably need to clean or replace the flame sensor.

Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

Rinnai Royale IB35R ,the flame goes off once I released the press button, it wont hold on as usual


pamgee - it may be a case of not holding the ignition button in long enough ( at least 15 seconds) so that the flame failure device (Thermocouple) will get hot enough, to maintain the pilot flame and the low burner. If it fails to light and hold the first time, push the igniter button again and release it. Wait 30 seconds and try lighting it again.

In case you have misplaced the Owner's Manual, I have provided a link that you can download & print for future reference. http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Flames/Royale%20Inbuilt.pdf

I hope this helped you to solve the problem ... Cheers

I have a coleman evcon and the gas keeps shutting off


The click noise you hear is the magnet inside the valve dropping out. Which means, the voltage that energizes it is low or interupted. Possible, weak pilot flame, bad thermocouple or bad secondary limit switch. This limit switch is located left of the main control. made of ceramic. It can also be a bad gas valve...
