Customer Testimonials - Reviews For Portland Plumbing Plus

Fair Plumber

Dav Griffin
Portland, OR
I had a storm drain issue and hired a P3 plumber based off many good reviews I read online. When the plumber arrived I asked for an estimate which he didn't give upfront. He told me a storm drain problem could turn into something big and he'd want to start off at his hourly rate and see how goes. Well, he did fix my storm drain problem but the hours added up to a sum that I thought would have been lower if I got a flat quote from the beginning. The plumber was thoughtful enough to cut me a rebate there and then. I didn't ask for any discount but he saw the need for it and did the right thing. It shows his integrity and that's why I'm writing this review. He is a fair plumber. I'd definitely call p3 for any plumbing need.

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...
