What could be causing the pilot light on my Noritz water heater to extinguish frequently?


James Thompson, Water Heater Repair Expert

There could be several reasons why the pilot light on your Noritz water heater is frequently going out. It could be due to a faulty thermocouple, a dirty pilot tube, or a problem with the gas supply. A thermocouple that’s not working properly can’t detect the pilot light and will shut off the gas, causing the light to go out. If the pilot tube is dirty, it can block the gas flow. Lastly, if there’s an issue with your gas supply, it can also cause the pilot light to go out frequently. It’s best to have a professional inspect your water heater to determine the exact cause.
