I have a DESA gas wall heater.

The pilot light will come on but when the gas is turned on the pilot light goes off so I can not get it lit. It has always worked good until now.

Pilot light goes out after thermostat kicks off


If it's a direct spark ignition type heater maybe that's how it's designed to.work .When called for heat pilot open allowing gas then ignitor spark and ignite the pilot then gas valve open and allow gas through burner then unit fires off .
Once temp is met pilot valve closes and pilot out .

Pilot light will stay lit as long as i hold down the knob, but when knob released, light goes out....... i have a wall mount model# GWRN30t


Normally when you release the knob it work the same as a two way switch ,which mean gas will stop flowing through the small pilot channel and will flow to large channel where it will continue to burn.
In your case, you have to strip down the regulator switch and look where the gas passage is glogged.

WE can get the pilot light lit but it will not stay on


You will need to check the pressure regulator for the gas.
It sounds like the gas pressure is to low to keep the pilot lit.

Ventless gas wall heater. Pilot lights but wont stay lit.


The thermocouple may be worn out.
The thermocouple may have come loose from the valve.
The ODS pilot may be clogged with dust or lint and may need to be cleaned with air(less than 30psi)
The valve or regulator may be faulty.

The pilot light will not stay lit after I let the button go to turn on the heater.


you most likely have to replance the thermocouple, its a safly feature that tells the gas valve that there is a flame present, if its not working its telling the gas valve that the pilot is not on and not to turn on the gas. If you look at your pilot light its a small metal rod that sticks into the flame, it should trace back and go directly into the gas valve.

Heater will not stay lit


sounds like the thermocouple is going out this is the part the flame from the pilot burns on and tells the gas valve to stay open by producing a small amount of electrical current in milli-amps these can be purchased @ a good hardware store and you must position as it is when it comes out , and must be the same length , make sure to connect to gas valve clean and tight , also is there a moisture trap in the line if so you might need to turn off gas and make sure it is free of moisture , this is a good place to start with these items
