Question about Dayton Gas Furnace Heater
I could not get to stay lit
Is this a standing pilot furnace, or electronic igniton?
If standing pilot, does the heater use a fan to blow air through the heat exchanger?
If the answer to those questions is yes, then check that the pilot orifice is not partially plugged and that there is a strong pilot blowing against the thermocouple. If there is, replace the thermocouple. If not, check the orifice again, and check that the inlet screen to the gas valve is not filled with gas line trash.
If the the pilot flame is good and it continues to go out, the thermocouple magnet in the gas valve may be weak. Replace the gas valve as to get just the magnet and coil is not easy.
Reply back any questions you may have.

well if you have 6.2 psig at the valve that is your problem. most valves will only take an inlet pressure of 14" wc or about 1/2 psig. as pilot gas comes out of the valve with no regulation it would be blowing like a son of a gun. so if you have 6 .2" wc,water colum you are in good shape. have you tried to jumper the limit connections? a paper clip would work just fine. but if it does work no fair leaving it in place as a great danger may come your way. tell me what the pilot looks like blue and sharp or yellow and layz. there is a magnet in the valve that the thermocouple screws into but these dont often go bad.
