Pilot goes out after 2nd try.

i suggest that you get a gas fitter in to check the problem
It sounds like there is a blockage in the main jet and the pilot light is controlled by a sensor that turns all gas off after a set period of time to prevent an inadvertent explosion in the oven

Flames goes out when pilot is released

It sounds like the thermocouple that senses whether the pilot is lit is bad. You need to replace the sensor.

My Mod-n-Aire SST30 ignites but goes out after a short period. It is not the thermostat cutting in. Is blowing compressed air through the solution? Thanks.

Only if you're trying to clean the pilot and/or the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) if it's a Vent-free or Flue-less gas heater. It also sounds like the Thermocouple or Thermopile may be failing. If this is a Direct Vent heater, the air from the outside can blow back through the vent, strong enough to blow the pilot out.

The above are the first things you need to troubleshoot. Hope this helped you.

Pilot goes out once button is released

If the new thermocouple was installed properly, with its tip in or across the pilot flame so as to be heated by the flame, then the control valve may be faulty.

Note: The pilot primer button may need to be held down for a longer period of time.

Comercial deep fryer pilot light goes out

This problem could be caused by a few different things. You should check the condition of your pilot and the thermocouple, if the pilot is weak due to being dirty you will not generate the optimum Millivolts to run the fryer, you may need to dissassemble and clean the pilot. The thermocouple needs to be correctly placed in the pilot assembly, if it has dropped down to where it is not in the flame it will not work correctly. You may need a new thermopile as it may not be generating millivolts as needed. Gas pressure can cause this as well, if the pilot goes out then the main burners come on you should check the gas pressure. One more thing to check is the hi-limit thermostat, if this is cutting out early your pilot will go out. Imperial uses a self-resetting limit, after a few minutes your fryer will relight and work until if cuts out again. If your fryer pilot stay on with the thermostat off for long periods of time and does not go out immediately when the burners come on and the pilot is clean, you may need a hi limit. This is a lot of info, I hope it helps.
