You probably don' need to start with the thermocouple. If the pilot is burning with a yellow tip and is curled away from the thermocouple. What you have is a dirty pilot. The heater thinks you have a low oxygen level because of lint or bug in the mixing chamber. With the pilot off, take a drinking straw and blow backwards thru the pilot opening. Then try again.

I HAVE A VERMONT CASTINGS RADIANCE HEATER MY PILOT LIGHT WONT STAY LIT I HEAR THE THERMOCOUPLER TRIP THE VALVE BUT THE FLAME WILL GO OUT


We had this problem and struggled with it for over a year. We finally hired someone to come in and service the stove he cleaned everything and blew a piece of crud from the pilot line. NO Problem for 2 years since.
He told me the pilot light should look strong pointed like a pencil not curved up like a candle. He removed the pilot and disassembleed the line and used compressed air.

Lighting a glo warm heater


Is this a new heater or have you had it awhile? If new, yuo may have air in the line that will need to be bled out. The heater has a gas valve with a pilot setting on it. Make sure the gas is turned on. Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When uou release the knob, the flame should stay o. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on.
