Water Heater Burner Knocks out Pilot...
Well my gas water heater pilot light will not stay lit and I did a bit of investigating and I think I found the problem but I do not know how to fix it. Apparently when the burner comes on the pilot light goes out. After lighting the pilot I will slowly turn the temperature know up until the burner lights. Then when I turn the temperature know down the burner shuts off but the pilot is out. When lite the pilot flame is a good strong blue with some slight orange hitting the tip of the thermocouple.
What can I do?
adjust the pilot lite flame up higher, if possible
some gas appliances have a small ajusting screw. look on the regulator out front. also tighten, if necessary the small pilot fitting going in to same control
