SOURCE: pilot lite will not stay lite
You need to change the thermocouple on the unit.
First check to see if the flame is hitting the thermocouple when the flame is on when you hold down the button. If it is then remove the the thermocouple and replace with the same size. You should be able to pick one up at your local hardware store.
If when you replace the thermocouple the flame does not stay lit still you may have a bad gas valve.
Hope this helps and please rate this!

Make sure the blower access panels are on firmly. There is a safety switch on most gas furnaces that will prevent operation in the event the blower access panel is not on or loosened. Also make sure a power switch (sometimes looks like a light switch) was not accidentally left "off". :-)
I hope you find this to be very helpful moving forward.
If the blower access panel is not the problem, let us know and we'll dig deeper. :-)

The knob needs to be turned so the arrow is pointing at "Pilot". It is the only position you will be able to depress the knob all the way down. Once you light the pilot, keep holding down the knob for 30-60 seconds. When you release the knob, the pilot should stay lit if it's working properly. If not, here's a few things to check. Is the pilot flame blue? Is the flame actually heating the thermocouple end? The thermocouple has to get hot enough to allow the gas to stay on to the pilot. Also look at the tip of the thermocouple. It should be smooth and rounded. If you're pilot flame is a lazy yellow, after time it will burn off the tip of the thermocouple, causing pilot outages. Replacing the thermocouple is usually the easiest fix it and is probably what you will need to do. But if your pilot flame is that lazy yellow, you will also need to clean it by either a tiny broach needle or using canned air (with straw attached). Be careful and because propane is heavier than air, smell low to the floor before lighting it to make sure there is not a gas leak. To be safe, close the gas shut off valve and air out the room before lighting and always follow the manufacturer's lighting instructions printed on the heater. If doing this seems too difficult or scary, then call your local propane co and they will send out a serviceman to fix it for parts and labor. Good luck! Douglas
