How To Relight A Pilot Light


Relighting a pilot light is an important task that can be done relatively easily if you know the right steps. A pilot light is a small gas flame that is kept alight in order to ignite the main burner of a gas appliance. If your pilot light has gone out, you can easily relight it yourself. Here is a step-by-step guide to relighting your pilot light.

Before you begin, make sure to turn off the gas supply to the appliance. This is important for safety reasons. You will then need to locate the pilot light, which is usually located at the bottom of the appliance. If you can't find it, consult your appliance manual.

Once you have located the pilot light, you will need to locate the pilot light knob. This will be a small knob or switch, usually located near the pilot light. Turn the knob to the “Pilot” position. You may need to hold down the knob while doing this.

Now you will need to press the knob or switch and hold it down while you light the pilot light. Use a long-necked lighter or a match to light the pilot light. Keep the knob or switch pressed down for about 30 seconds. This allows the gas to flow through the pilot light and keep it lit.

Once the pilot light is lit, you can turn the knob or switch back to the “On” position. You should now be able to use your appliance. If the pilot light goes out again, you can repeat the steps above.

In summary, relighting a pilot light is a relatively simple task that can be done by anyone. Make sure to turn off the gas supply to the appliance before you begin. Then locate the pilot light, locate the pilot light knob, press the knob and hold it down while you light the pilot light, and turn the knob to the “On” position. If the pilot light goes out again, you can repeat the steps.
