the flame detector rod is dirty? try cleaning with sand paper and scraping also. there should be a small amp. reading threw wire coming from flame detector rod. in milli amp range. increases when running. some times i use a jumper to hold gas valve on once started to allow time to test amps.

Very possible the thermocoupler is no good. The thermo coupler is that bulb that is in the pilot flame. It controls the main valve It's not expensive and fairly easy to change out.. Make sure you get no dirt in the cspillary tube hole.brass screw end. The bulb must be just in the flame tip when adjusting. Good Luck, Ned-

SOURCE: Pilot on logs won't stay lit
Hold pilot button longer. if this doesn't work your Thermopile has gone bad and will not generate enough Millivolts to keep gas valve pilot open. A new thermopile will generate 750 millivolts. It cost less than $20 dollars but is difficult to replace. You should call a certified technician. They will charge you about $100.00
