If you in fact have button to push and hold, that indicates the system has a standing pilot with a thermocouple. Usually a standing pilot does not have an ignitor. I say USUALLY because I do not know all systems by heart. At any rate, I have to assume your system has a manual igniter like a barbeque pit and you push and hold the button while pushing the ignitor manually then release the button after 30 seconds or so of burning.......
IF THIS IS THE CASE, you more than likely have a bad thermocouple. The thermocouple when heated generates electricity that holds the safety coil in that is held in when you depress the button. If it fails to hold in by the thermocouple, the likely culprit is the aforementioned thermocouple HOWEVER, there is a slight possibility that the coil internal of the gas valve is defective if it does it AGAIN with a new thermocouple installed.
you need to replace the thermocouple at the burner tip it will be a copper line with a bulb in the flame tip with a copper tube leading back to the gas valve and it senses the flame and keeps the gas valve open
