SOURCE: pilot light won't stay lit.
most common cause of the described symptom overheating the thermocouple! a thermocouple produces millivolts of electricity based upon a differential of temperature between the tip and the base. If it gets too hot it will not work correctly. If the pilot flame is too large or the main burner flame is contacting the thermocouple or the thermocouple is too cheap or old all can cause this issue.

It has a thermo-couple that lets the gas valve know that the pilot light is on. If it does not get the heat signal to the valve, it will not turn on the gas. The end of the thermo-couple has to be in the flame of the pilot, and tight on the other end, and must be tight on the other end.
