-perhaps you have resolved your issue, which is why you have not responded to my questions...this is great if it is true, but just incase I will attempt to answer it anyway
-the pilot does not require much fuel to maintain (more than you think..when you look at the summer bills)
-when the thermostat calls for the burner to fire, it opens the valve and the fuel SHOULD flow
-when insufficient fuel is provided, the increased demand actually causes the burner to extinish itself, which results in the valve automatically closing (safety feature)
-if the fuel is liquid (i.e. heating oil) there will be a filter which is likely the cause of the lack of fuel delivery....this is a $15 filter...available at many hardware stores..or even you fuel supplier
-the process is simple.
if you are uncomfortable at all...then call a fuel burner technician...please!
Remember....anything other than a FIX-YA will lower my rating...so please if you have any other questions....ask....if not...then FIX-YA

take a needle and put it into the end of the gas pilot hole. Wiggle it around in there, it just might have dust build up in there. Hope this helps ya.

take millivolt reads while main burner is on.i suspect you will see a drop in voltage until you get to point where it will no longer operate burner(around 200mv).if this is the case you probably have poor pilot characteristics due to dirty pilot,pilot out of adjustment ,obstruction or insufficient gas pressure

A polit generator produces about 750 MV without a load. Under load it will drop to about 200-250 MV. If the system is working don't worry about it. If the system is not working replace the pilot generator and retest. Pilot generators usually go bad slowly.
