Pilot Light Replacement & Repair for Milwaukee Area Residents

Reignite Your Water Heater Pilot Light with Midwest Water Heater

You’re getting ready to wash the dishes when you notice that the water is running cold. When you check your gas water heater, the pilot light is out. It’s possible that the heater ran out of propane. Other possible causes include:

  • A Dirty Thermocouple
  • A Bent or Broken Thermocouple
  • A Dirty Pilot Tube
  • Strong Drafts

Turn off the gas if the valve hasn’t shut off automatically. Pilot lights do not create carbon monoxide, but the natural gas they use can cause sickness. Do not attempt to relight the pilot right away— wait at least three minutes. If you’re not comfortable with relighting the pilot yourself, call a professional.

Midwest Water Heater offers 24/7 emergency plumbing services for dangerous or timely hot water heater problems. If your pilot light goes out often, is hard to relight, or burns yellow instead of blue, contact Midwest Water Heater’s plumbers for help with your water heater.
