Hi Robert, the pilot light is either dirty or the thermocouple needs replacing. Take it to a gas specialist for safty reasons.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

I have a propane reddi heater and I can't get it to stay on after I light it, it won't stay on. Is there something that needs to be cleaned or replaced


Generally speaking a propane heater stays lite because the pilot stays lite. The pilot flame touches a thermocouple which produces a current which keeps the main valve open. Pilot goes out or you have a bad thermocouple or the pilot is slightly clogged (reduced heat to thermocouple) or maybe the thermocouple is not touching the flame enough. Most times when a propane heater goes out the problem is somewhere in that neighborhood. Thermocouple - pilot. I have always had luck carefully taking those parts off, cleaning, and reassembling, but check the position of the thermocouple first. Looks like a small brass rod which sticks into the flame. This is a safety mechanism to prevent the flame being blown out and leaving the gas on. Good luck
