Pilot light wont stay lit when button is released
If the thermocouple is being well covered by the pilot flame, then it sounds like the thermocouple or thermopile is bad (a thermocouple and thermopile both perform the same way, but are entirely different devices. I am unsure which yours has.
Also, make sure all connections from the t-couple of generator are snug tight to the gas valve. There may also be a temperature sensor that has tripped that prevents the pilot from remaining lit. Follow the thermocouple/thermopile tubing to locate any inline sensors that may be open, preventing the signal reaching the gas valve.
Let me know if I can help more. I have not been able to find any information on this specific unit, so will have to speak in general about what to look for.
