Best quote and prompt service leaking pipe fixed

Cary
Portland, OR
I had a pipe leaking in my  kitchen which started pouring out water. I surfed around and got a hold of this company. When I called, I got his voice-mail and left a message. I became impatient when I didn't hear back from him immediately so I called other plumbers. All of the other plumbers had trip and emergency prices attached but I didn't mind because I should have fixed the pipe when it was just dripping water but I kept procrastinating until  it turned into an emergency. While I was still on the phone with one of the plumbers, someone called me back from P3 and gave the best quote with no trip or emergency attached. That was really excellent and unexpected so P3 got the job and came out promptly to fix the problem. I am highly satisfied with his service and his price is just awesome. I recommend this company to everyone.

Question: My Water Heater Pilot Light Wont Stay Lit

Question
Yesterday my water heater went out and didn't come on, so I replace the thermocouple and the gas valve and the pilot now wont stay lit, but the old thermocouple was shorter than the new one, been the new thermocouple longer than the old one could that be why the pilot doesn't stay on?

Answer
The length of the thermocouple has nothing to do with the problem you're having. The longer thermocouple is the universal type with longer lead. Just uncoil as much lead as you need for the installation, then roll the excess in a tight roll and tuck it behind your gas tube.

I suspect that you didn't install the thermocouple properly. There are other possibilities though but if you didn't install the thermocouple properly against the pilot, it wont heat and open gas control valve.

I suggest that you do the following:
1. Make sure that the end of the thermocouple is raised at least 1/4 inch above pilot lit to heat properly.  Use a pair of pliers to bend pilot and thermocouple 1/4 closer to each other
2. While igniting the pilot, press down and hold the pilot button for 30 seconds. Pressing down and holding the button on gas control valve for 30 seconds allows the gas to enter pilot to heat thermocouple.

Other Common Problems Why Pilot Wont Stay Lit

  • No gas
  • Low gas pressure
  • Blocked pilot line
  • Faulty thermocouple - note that some thermocouples may have factory faults. So the one you just bought could be faulty.
  • Faulty thermostat
  • Air in gas line
  • Moth and dirt in gas line...
