A professional heating technician is recommended if suspect that the problem is significant. The information in this blog can assist you to determine and then relight the pilot light by yourself.
Identify the pilot
You must follow the gas line through your furnace until you reach that gas valve. The gas valve indicates pilot off, and on. You will find the thermocouple’s pilot light as well as the safety measure, and the gas tube that comes out of the valve.
You must turn off the gas valve “off” and let the furnace cool for five minutes. If you can smell gas or gas-like odor, turn off the gas line and call a professional if you think that there’s been something to do with a leak.
It’s a new beginning
For gas to be delivered to your pilot, turn the valve to ensure that it is in the pilot position. Make sure you hold the bypass key. A barbecue lighter should be placed at the pilot’s nose. The flame should be lit to activate the pilot’s lights. In order to keep the flame burning until the thermocouple is warm you need to hold the bypass switch down for 30 minutes.
On the gas valve, turn it on and then set the thermostat at the temperature you want. If the pilot light continues disappearing, there could be an issue with the thermocouple. It will require cleaning.
