Question about Heating & Cooling
Pilot light went out on furnace followed instructions but when it wouldnt work the gas valve wont turn to get it back on
Is the knob on top of the valve not turning when you press it down to light the pilot light?

Make sure all the wire connections are good and tight. Next lift off the cover and look for a little thermal disc mounted up by top of the heat exchanger. Most have a re-set button but not all. If you have this ,by-pass it ,see if that solves the problem, if so it may be defective, or doing its job and you have a venting problem. If you don't have this and have changed the thermocouple (was it a copper tube with a fitting that screwed into the gas valve, or did it have 2 wires, that is a pilot generator, kind of same thing) make sure the probe is set correct, with the pilot flame heating the top 1/3rd of the probe. The only thing left is the gas valve.

SOURCE: Pilot will not light
The Pilot indicator will appear to line up with the arrow on the base, and even push in as though allowing gas to flow, but if it is just 1mm out of alignment, no gas will flow. So the solution is to move the valve in the Pilot mode slightly in one direction or the other to see if/when gas flows.

sounds like its not venting properly...it likely is shutting off on a "Spill switch" or "Vent safety switch"....check the vent/chimney first off.....also the pilot could be dirty..,..a lazy pilot tends to blow out easily....pilot should be blue and sharp,,,big enough to fully envelope the thermocouple

Testimonial: "I checked the pilot light and it's clean. I will have to check the chimney next week but thanks!"
Go to www.grainger.com and look for a "power pile generator" this is a millivolt thermocouple that may be just what you need to make your heater work again
