SOURCE: I have a Heat Dragon

Sounds like the thermocouple is bad. Pushing the knob bypasses the thermocouple and permits ignition once you let go after thirty seconds it is supposed to stay lit. This is common with heaters.

The oven turns its self ON every 20 to 45 mins. The electric ignition glows and the gas comes on and burns for about 30 to 60 secs then turns off. The oven control knob is turned OFF. There are no aut


Seems to me you have a defective control panel board.. Ovens should never do this. Time for the Serviceman right away, this could be dangerous if you are not home.

Pilot goes out when I try to turn the knob up


If the pilot stays on when you are holding it down (you are manually opening the gas valve) but won't stay lit when you let the knob go, then the thermocouple is bad. The pilot knob needs to be held down for 30 secs or so. The pilot flame has to heat the tip of the thermocouple long enough to for it to output a small electric signal (that holds the gas valve open). If you look at the pilot flame, you will see the tip of the thermocouple in the flame. That copper tube runs from the flame to the gas valve and is easy enough to replace. They sell them at most hardware stores. If you see a lot of ash buildup on the tip, you can turn the pilot off and clean the tip and try again.

The thermocouple is what tells the gas valve to supply or not supply gas. Several things can cause the thermocouple to malfuntion.
1. pilot light jet is clogged and will not allow the pilot light to reach and heat the thermocouple. Repair by cleaning the pilot light jet out.
2. corrosion on the thermocouple which will also not allow the flame from the pilot to heat the thermocouple properly. Repair by sanding the thermocouple lightly with sandpaper
3. Thermocouple is bad and needs replacement.

One year old heater


Try to hold the button down for 30 seconds at least before turning the knob to ON.
If you are doing this and it still goes out after you let up on the knob, then it may needs a new flame sensor.

No hot air


If you have a pilot light (small flame) you can try to re-light it by turning the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position and pushing the knob down while lighting the pilot, you may have to hold the knob down for up to 30 seconds before releasing it. The pilot should stay lit and then turn the knob to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit or the main burner will not light it could be the gas valve or the temperature sensor.
