Change the thermocouple. The thermocouple scenes the heat from the pilot lit and signals the main gas valve to remain in the ready condition. The main valve will not receive the signal if the thermocouple is bad and will revert to the safety shut down when the control knob is released.

Light pilot light


Turn control knob to "Pilot" and press it down. While holding knob down, light pilot with a match. After pilot lights continue to hold knob down for about one minute. When you release the knob the pilot should remain on. If it goes out then the thermocouple needs to be replaced.
