Question about Heating & Cooling
That is not the fix ...although it works...the pilot light is dirty as you suggested...it really needs to be taken apart to be cleaned properly....the pilot should NOT fluctuate in size after any amount of time...if it does the pilot is dirty , it's windy , or the gas valve could be defective....the pilot should be large enough to envelop the thermocouple...outdoor units get spiders etc also that block the pilots etc.....the problem with your solution is when the pilot isn't of sufficient size it's supposed to go out...the reason being you could get "Delayed Ignition" if the pilot is too small to light the burner or as a result of being small...is too far away from the burner
