Question about Heating & Cooling
No-- it should normally keep the pilot burning...
How about we learn a few things together, and see what to do next:
1.) Does it have a little device right next to (in the path of..) the Pilot flame, that is supposed to stay HOT (and thus be safe for the Pilot gas valve to stay open/'on')-- This is called a Thermo-couple.-- (Actually a very low voltage generator, that tells the gas valve it is safe to let gas flow.)
Here is a link to a Thermo couple for GloWarm heaters-- not sure if this is your exact model or not -- but it may help you know what I am talking about?)
2.) How old is the Thermo-couple?-- and is it dirty from soot build up?-- It can be polished-- that might help.
3.) THe Pilot flame needs to be just slightly in the path of the flame, so that it generates sufficient electrical power to keep the gas vale 'on'.
Any questions from the points listed above?
Hope this helps-- Mack B.
