Turning Gas Back On

The natural gas was turned off for repairs. Service was turned on at the curb and at the meter, but I can't get the pilot lit on the furnace or hot water heater. The gas company cannot get here for a few days. I am familiar with shutting the gas off at the meter and turning it back on. I am wondering if there is a valve inside the meter that needs to be reset? Thanks

Turning Gas Back On

No valve need reset, you have to hold in the button until all the air is purges out, it will lite back up, give it some time.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
