This is normally caused by the thermocouple. This is the part the pilot light heats up to let the heater know the gas is on and the pilot light is lit. The heater will shut off if it thinks the pilot light is not lit for safety reasons. You will need to change the thermocouple for it to work again correctly.

The pilot light will not turn off after the burner is on... I think it over heats, because it will just shut off after several minutes.... any suggestions? Thank you


The pilot light must remain on, even when the main burner is on, to keep the thermocouple hot. If the thermocouple cools off, the gas flow shuts off. It sounds like something is interrupting the gas flow. If this is an LP heater, try replacing the regulator.

Oven malfunctioning, not getting hot; smell of "gas"


Check that the pilot is lit., If not, light it after gas is shut off for 10 minutes. Then turn to pilot, hold down, light, keep holding down for exactly 1 minute, then turn gas knob to ON and you should be good. If gas shuts off, then valve is bad.

After a few minutes of burner heating the water, gas shuts off.


A couple of things to check:

If possible, remove the pilot gas assembly and clean the gas jet and thermocouple - they can get carboned up and stop working properly. Make sure the pilot flame and deflector is aimed properly and making the thermocouple glow red hot. If the problem persists, you may want to replace the thermocouple and also check the propane regulator.

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.
