Pilot flame is coming on, however, once I release the pilot knob and try to turn knob to low or high the flame goes out immediately.. I took the top off and nothing appears to be clogged... Any suggestion?
Make sure there is no dust dirt spider webs in the pilot hood if u have a nice blue flame coming from the pilot and u held the pilot knob down for at least 30 sec
and it still doesn't work then u have a bad THERMOCOUPLE

You will not be able to blow through a gas valve when it's disconnected. You may have air in the lines which would cause the pilot to go off when knob is released if not held in long enough. Try lighting again. Once the pilot lights - hold knob in for 5 minutes then release. Try twice, if pilot will not stay lit it's probably the thermal coupler. (metal prong right next to flame of pilot burner.)
do you have the pilot light burning if not then you have to get in burning first Put knob in pilot position push down and hold for at least 30 seconds or longer then if there is an igniter push and release it push and release till pilot light comes on .Continue to hold pilot light button down for another 10 seconds or so, release pilot button and turn button to on or up a number or set T stat Main flame should come on and burn
When you light the pilot, are you holding it down for 30-60 seconds. When you release the pilot button, does the pilot flame stay lit? Or does it only go out when you turn the knob to on position. Make sure the pilot flame is heating the end of the thermocouple and that it's a strong blue flame, not a lazy yellow pilot flame. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is not burn't off, which usually happens with lazy yellow pilot flames. Replace thermocouple is nothing else works.
You have to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON. If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it needs a new flame sensor, or thermocouple. Same thing different names.
