  • Ignition System Malfunction: The ignition system might be faulty and require repair or replacement.


  • Pilot Light: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to relight the pilot light or give us a call to assist. If it won’t stay lit, we’ll come out to check the thermocouple.

  • Ignition System: Contact your Midtown technician to inspect and repair the ignition system.

  • Dust and Debris: Dust and debris can accumulate on the burners, causing a burning smell.
  • Incomplete Combustion: This can result in a sooty odor, often indicating a problem with the burner or venting system.
