Call a service engineer tomorrow morning. The thermocouple has a shade over the top to prevent the flame being blown out, yours is either fallen off or needs adjusting. Also the pilot jet might need cleaning or replacing. It MAY need a new thermocouple but it sounds as if it is doing its job.

SOURCE: furnace problems

Yes, this a symptom when the heat exchanger has a crack in it. Get someone there today! If there is a crack, you could be exposing yourself to Carbon Monoxide! GET IT CHECKED NOW.

SOURCE: burner and pilot run then kick off

if this is electronic ignition you have a dirty flame sensor.
If you have a standing pilot light you should remove, dismantle and clean the pilot assembley.
Makec sure you clean the small gas oriface located inside the pilot assembly.
When you put it back together I would install a thermocoupling. Can be purchased for about $10 -$14 at any hardware store.

SOURCE: pilot light goes out when burner kicks off

Sounds like the pilot is dirty....when dirty it gets smaller and lazy...tends to go out easy...try gently tapping it with a screwdriver...make the pilot bluer and bigger....when it's dirty it has yellow tips or yellow completely , the pilot should fully envelope the thermocouple as well

SOURCE: pilot light goes out when burners kick on burnham

Get a toothbrush and clean the **** off the pilot, could be partially blocked. Change the safety thermocouple. Check the plenum for cracks. A cracked heat exchanger can cause this.

Pilot light goes out after thermostat kicks off


If it's a direct spark ignition type heater maybe that's how it's designed to.work .When called for heat pilot open allowing gas then ignitor spark and ignite the pilot then gas valve open and allow gas through burner then unit fires off .
Once temp is met pilot valve closes and pilot out .

I have a Dayton furnace in my garage. It is well over 20 years old and it is a gas one. Long and narrow with blower on the top and burner on the bottom. Last year I had someone come to look at it because...


I would check and see if the heat exchanger is not spilt and the blower on top is blowing out the pilot .Also clean pilot and check thermocouple .

There are two at the beach and they won't stay lighted. The pilot kicks on, then you hear gas, then it ignites with a big swoosh and immediately goes out. This happens over and over.


Sounds like the pilot sensor is dirty if you can see where the pilot light burns the will be a metal rod that senses the heat of the pilot and tells the burner it can come on. clean the rod with steel wool. even a little build up can shut the burner down.

There are 4 -steps for full run time to kick in a furnace.. step-1, inducer fan runs & prove thru the air tube which closes a switch and tell the circuit board to go to step-2, the igniter lights the pilot & prove its lit by heating the thermocouple, which tells the circuit board to go to step-3, opens the gas valve to dump gas in, which will light from the pilot light, and prove by a flame sensor metal stick on the last burner , which heats up and tell the circuit board Saying, ok , I've got flame.. step-4. when the box heats up, it closes a switch and turn on the main fan...! (Some gas-valves has a brain -or circuit board on top of them and are real sensetive to moisture..)
