In this way, is my pilot light out?
The pilot is a small flame that ignites the gas burner on your waterheater. When it goes out, first try relighting it, following the directions on the water heater label. If the pilot doesn't relight, or if it goes out right after lighting, by far the most common cause is a bad thermocouple.
How do you light a pilot light on a gas furnace?
Once the gas has had time to dissipate, turn the knob to "Pilot." Then, hold down the "Reset" button and bring the flame of a long lighter close to the pilot light opening. This should light the furnace pilot light. Once you are sure the pilot light is on, release your pressure on the reset button.
How do you light a pilot light on a stove?
Place your lit match or lighter by the gas jet. It should light immediately with a small blue flame. If the pilot lights for the stove are both on and you can still smell gas, please check to see if the third one for the oven is lit. You can see it if you open the broiler door and look all the way in the back.
