Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a Rheem Classic 80 furnace that would ignite but not stay lit. Cleaned the ignition sensor which was easy to get to and the flame sensor which was under the burner plate and it fired up and stayed lit. The flame sensor was about 6" under the burner plate. Easy to get out, but tough to get back in. Used the old piece of paper shim trick to get the screw to "stick" in the socket and it was much easier to position the screw and get it back where it belonged.

Sounds like you may have a bad thermocouple. Little unit/sensor at the pilot flame that reads the pilot light is on so that the gas will flow.Usually has a coiled small copper tube.
