Customer Question
My pilot light went...

My pilot light went out in the recent storm. How do I relight it? Thanks!! Ted

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Hi! Pearl - I'm hoping that we weren't disconnected. Thanks.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Ted

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I think not - it's a matter of getting to the pilot light which I assume is behind the small glass window - how do I remove that? I don't want to break it. Thanks. Ted
