Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


The pilot generator most likely; if not there is a short in the gas valve and it will need to be replaced. Generators are a normal wear-and-tear replacement part...gas valves are not. The generator should be under $40 and is pretty easy to replace. Some places call the part the thermocouple but either name works. It is the metal 'stick' with a metal-clad set of wires from it the sticks up next to the pilot flame and is in turn heated up by the pilot to power the rest of the heater.
