Your gas control valve is bad and needs to be replaced more than likely.
When the unit calls for heat watch to make sure that the pilot light gets larger. If it does then the pilot circuit is OK. You could have a bad thermal valve but more than likely the main gas valve is defective.
After the pilot light gets larger count to 5 and if the main gas valve does not turn on the main gas valve/control box is bad and needs repalced. If you are not sure of the procedure you should hire a competent technician to replace the unit.
Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating!!!!!
