I thought the whole idea of Gas Safety Cut off valves, was to prevent un-lit gas from emitting.
The gas fire Pilot light has ignited and the Thermocouple is heated sufficiently to allow gas through but pilot flame is not reaching the burner ?
The pilot light assembly has an L shape channel, which is intended to direct gas to both, the burner and over the thermocouple.
This is my elderly Father’s gas fire, which he ignited correctly, and then turned it to heat settings 4; luckily, I was there and I noticed the burner had not lit.
My elderly Father has Dementia, he was totally oblivious.
I hate to imagine what could have happened if my Father was by his self and a build up of Gas had occurred and ignited.
So, it this an issue that occurs from time to time and the fire requires a replacement Pilot light assembly or should I be notifying the gas fire manufacturers?
