How to Light a Pilot Light

Many older gas appliances have a small, continuously burning gas flame, the pilot light, that ignites the main burner. Newer models have electric igniters. Keep the manufacturer's relighting instructions within easy reach and follow them carefully in reigniting pilot lights.

Danville Utilities strongly recommends that for safety reasons, you either call us at 434-799-5284 or a qualified service company to relight pilots. However, if you relight the pilot yourself, please follow the manufacturer's safety precautions and relighting instructions applicable to your equipment.
