Pilot won't stay lit


A Pro said "Probably Work"? Thats like a surgeon saying "oops" when you are on the table. Not encouraging.

Pilot won't stay lit


Ok, the only reason I asked is that in some instances the valve will have what's called an ECO connection to it.

This would be two other wires that are part of the limit safety circuitry of the boiler. What they do is basically break the electrical circuit of the thermocouple to the gas valve if any of the safeties open...... effectively the same thing as if the pilot were to go out.
