Pick up a can of compressed air. After shutting the gas off to the appliance, blow the compressed air directly into the pilot tube and count to 5. Use a shopvac or vacume cleaner and thoroughly clean the burner and pilot area of any soot or ash that has dropped. Use the can of compressed air to blow across the burner ports as much as possible and then revacum the area. This is a typical gas problem that creates carbon monoxide and most gas companies charge anywhere between $75 to $150 for this service call to do what I just described. After completing this process, turn the gas back on and relight the pilot. Be sure the burner lights. Please maintain a safe distance. After blowing with compressed air the burner and pilot my hesitate to light and cause a flash. Please post me with any updates. Good luck!

There are a few possible causes but this is usually caused by a problem with the safetythermocouple
there is usually a thermocouple that is designed to be in the pilot light flame (it normally looks like a small metal cylinder with wires leading away from it)
if the thermocouple isn't hot enough, that indicates that the pilot light has been blown out or something, and it is no longer safe to keep feeding gas to the pilot light (it isn't burning so the gas could fill up a room and cause an explosion)
there are several reasons why the thermocouple might not be registering the temperature
1. the pilot light gas nozzle is partially plugged and so the flame is not as big or as hot as it should be and isn't heating the thermocouple (sometimes you can clean the nozzle with a pipe cleaner or one of these cans of pressurized air)
2. the thermocouple has moved (been bumped or broken) and is no longer in the right place to be heated by the flame
3. the thermocouple wire is broken or unattached at the other end
If it isn't the thermocouple, then it may be the gas valve itself which is usually not repairable and kind of expensive to replace
it could, of course, also be something else
