John J BS: Pilot Light/Water Heater (38) RE: BS: Pilot Light/Water Heater 05 Mar 13

Melissa - where are you located? UK?

What is the make and model of your water heater?

Some piezo igniters are incorporated into the main gas control valve - press the button a few times so it clicks and sparks, hopefully lighting the pilot light.

You'll see when the pilot light is ignited by looking through the little glass window that will be located somewhere on the front of the water heater.

The button needs to be held down to allow the pilot light to stay on until the thermocouple gets up to temperature and 'holds' the gas supply on.

PM me if you would like further guidance.
