Hi there. You must continue to hold the knob in for at least 30 seconds before releasing. If the pilot still goes out, the "thermocouple" is bad. It's the little tube in the pilot flame. To replace, remove the main burner assembly/pilot. You can get a thermocouple at any hardware store. Ask questions while you are there.
Thanks
Paul

Pilot goes off as soon as I release the button


You need to hold the button down for about 3 mins. If it goes out after that long the thermocouple is probably bad. Look at how long the wire is from the pilot light to the gas valve. They come in different lengths.

hey Carli suspect you mean the pilot goes out as soon as u turn your gas control valve back to the on position!? If this is so, you will have to probable reset the flue spill switch located right at the exaust outlet. OR, SOMETIMES THEY HAVE ANOTHER LIMIT switch in the same circuit in series. If the pilot goes out when u release the pilot press down knob, then it is your thermo couple is loose or fininshed,or the pilot flame is not aimed properly at the sensor (thermo couple)

40,000 btu Charmglo patio heater, brand new, pilot light stays lit as long as you keep the knob depressed. As soon as you release the knob, and turn it to the high position, the pilot goes out! Please...


There is a thermocouple that detects that there is a pilot flame so that main gas won't come on unless there is a pilot. That thermocouple is faulty. These are available from a plumbing supply house. The thermocouple will be attached right in the flame from the pilot and connects back into the gas valve.

My electrolux oven won't stay lit


Right above your pilot light, there is a little temperature probe. It either needs to be cleaned, replaced, or adjusted closer to the top of the pilot flame. Hope this helps. Good luck!

On top of the gas valve you will see a knob. Turn the knob to the position that says pilot. It's on the side of valve. Press the knob down with one hand and take your long lighter stick it by the pilot tube looks like a small aluminum tube should light pretty quickly hold for 30 seconds release the button you have been holding down. Now turn the knob to the on position. Make sure the thermostat is turned off so the flame don't fire up as soon as you turn knob. If you are uncomfortable gas your gas company and they should come out for free.
