Question about Heating & Cooling
The pilot light lights the burner yet continuously goes out after having been lit for several moments thus shutting off the unit. How do I stop this?

I am not familiar with this heater but it sounds like it could be a blockage in the main gas line into the heater or perhaps a blockage to the pilot gas line and maybe starving for gas. Best bet first is to check the main gas line from the heater. Easiest way to do this is to remove it from the heater and blow it through with compressed air. Then try the heater again. If that doesn't fix the problem then you can try blowing compressed air down through the pilot line. Could be a little dirt creating a blockage there. Then try the heater again. If it still does the same thing then try removing the panels to expose the heater's piping. If you can remove the main pipe into the heater from the gas and blow compressed air through it it should clear any obstruction from both the main line and the pilot. If this doesn't work then I would think you have a more severe problem and will need to take it to your local Heater Repairer. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Pilot goes out!!
My manual shows three possibilities: 1) Insufficient fresh air available for combustion, so ODS kicks off gas flow 2) Low gas line pressure (should be between 11 and 14") or 3) ODS/Pilot is partially clogged. Toll free number for ProCom is 877-886-5989.

SOURCE: Torpedo heater wont stay lit.
Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.

take millivolt reads while main burner is on.i suspect you will see a drop in voltage until you get to point where it will no longer operate burner(around 200mv).if this is the case you probably have poor pilot characteristics due to dirty pilot,pilot out of adjustment ,obstruction or insufficient gas pressure
