Most likely it is the thermocouple. A 10.00 item at Lowe's or home depot. Easily removed and replaced. This devise is a safety device. It heats up to a certain temperature and the resistance changes back to the gas flow valve. After about 30 seconds of having the pilot on and the valve held down while lighting the pilot it should stay lit. If it does not, it is the thermocouple and has to be replaced. I did this on our apartmen'ts boiler a week ago and it works fine.
Hope this helped....
