If you keep relighting the pilot and it keeps going out it is most likely a problem with the thermocouple. They are inexpensive and generally easy to replace but only if you are familiar with this type of work. If you plan on DIY be careful because you will be working with gas and electricity. Be sure to shut off both before replacing it. or.. call a technician to be sure it is indeed the thermocouple that needs replacing and they can safely replace it for you.

What should you do if your Laars pool heater takes a long time for the main gas valve to open and the pilot is lit and the thermostat is turned up?

Answer . Possibly not enough gas flow. Have a monometer test done along with a complete check up of the heater. Has this been a problem from the time the heater was installed? Could also be a gas line that is not large enough for the length of the run. Also, do you have flexible tubing connected (MORE)

What should you do if the pilot won't stay lit on a Teledyne Laars pool heater but will stay on as long as the button on the control unit is pushed down but the flame goes out when released?

This is probably due to a faulty thermocouple. The thermocouple generates a small voltage when hot that is used as a security device that keeps the gas flowing to the pilot. These are relatively inexpensive (UK about �18). You can check if this is the problem by measuring the voltage on the wir (MORE)

The small metal cylinder that is heated by the pilot flame, the generator thermopile thermocouple forces 0.25/0.5/0.75 Volt min/typical/max on to the approximately 10 Ohm input resistance of the electrical input to the gas valve. The gas valve is that metal box that the gas pipe routes through. Use (MORE)

How does a gas wall heater work?

Wall heaters operate by heating a stream of air moving through the unit by convection. There usually is no blower.

What should you do if the pilot light won't stay lit on a Teledyne Laars pool heater and the pilot generator registers up 500 MV?

From what I have read, 500mV is not enough to keep the pilot light lit. Here is what I read on a different site: "You can check if this is the problem by measuring the voltage on the wires coming back from the pilot. When you have the red switch depressed, check the voltage (should be about 200mV). (MORE)

Why wont your pilot light stay lit?

The thermocouple needs to be replaced - not a hard thing to do. The thermocouple is the bullet-shaped object that is near the pilot light. It is screwed on to the tip of the thin gas line.

How do you wire three electric hydronic baseboard heaters and a wall mount t-stat?

Assuming they are all serving the same room and you are talking about 110 volts. Wire the 3 heat strips in parallel and break the power source feeding the closest one to the stat with the stat and connect the common wire wherever you can catch the house common. Be sure the stat is rated to carry the (MORE)

Your LP gas valve fails to stay lit?

Check that the temperature sensor is properly located (generally right above the pilot flame). If it doesn't stay lit after holding the pilot button down (per the instructions), have a repair person correct the problem.

Where can i find a thermostat for martin stamping electric wall mount heater model fw430 serial number e 7215?

A King WT-1 (single pole) or WT-2 (double pole) replacement thermostat will work for Martin Industries heaters that do not use a thermocouple (which looks like a length of copper tubing with a bulb on the end). Check your thermostat. If it does not have a thermocouple, count the number of wires com (MORE)

Why does the Power Lit stays lit but car runs fine?

Are we talking about the charge warning light (Red, usually with a picture of a battery on it these days)? If so, it means your alternator isn't working properly. You need to get this seen to fairly soon, or you will kill the battery (and end up having to replace that as well as the alternator).

Gas logs wont stay lit what to do?

Your problem is likely due to something with the thermocouple. That is the device that senses heat fom the pilot light- no heat, it turns off gas as a safety measure. Get a gas appliance repairman to check- they do go bad, get bent, etc. Not incredibly expensive to replace.
