My problem has been solved. A friend looked at it and discovered that I have a short in one of the wires. Thank you for your quick response in this matter.

If this is a standing pilot you will want to check your voltage out put from the pilot. For this you will need a milivolt meter. The pilot should supply 500-700mv (1/2-3/4v) It only takes 200mv to open the pilot valve but needs another 300+ to open the main half of the gas valve. This would be the first thing I would check. If this is the problem you will need to replace the pilot assembly. If your getting the power you need from the pilot then it is probally your gas valve itself. Good luck.

Does the pilot light stay light? Or light then go back out? If it is doing that then it is the thermocoupler. looks like a wire that is in the flame of the pilot light. Other than the sparker. That is what dectects that there is fire in the pilot light before it starts the gas. Safety thing. So if that isnt detecting fire, then it will never let the gasvalve open up, Try taking some steel wool or real fine sandpaper and clean up that sensor. The wire. It builds up a thin film on it from gas burning.

you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
the pilot generator or the pilot head itself is the issue. You need a good,
solid blue flame across the generator to get enough power to hold the switch
open when you let go of the knob. If the pilot flame is week or not aimed
across the generator it will not stay lit.
it is but the generator is old and weak, it will go out as well. If you can see
the pilot flame and it is a nice blue color, replace the generator. If it is
not, disassemble the pilot and either clean it out or replace it.
