Pilot won't stay on

I have a raypk pool heater and the pilot will light but won't stay on when I release the button. It does this every year when I try to light it. then all of a sudden the pilot stays on and it works fine all summer. So far this year, the pilot will not stay on.

Any suggestions??

The pilot assembly may need cleaned out and the orifice cleaned, also the gas valve may need to be replaced, to check for proper voltage from the thermocouple you need a flame source and it takes a meter that can register DC milliamps, and should be 350 to 750 millivolts. Heat the thermocouple with the pilot or other flame source and check, if OK, gas valve is weak.

Heater won't stay lit after releasing the pilot button


The most likely cause would be a weak or broken pilot generator, also referred to as a thermocouple. It is the 'stick' next to the pilot head with a metal braided wire that separates into a white and red wire at the gas valve. Replacing it should allow the heater to start working properly.

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.
