Question about Garden
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
This is a sure sign of a bad thermocouple or a dirty mating area where the thermocouple terminates at the gas valve.
Try this first.
Disconnect the thermocouple at the gas valve by removing the thermocoup0le mating nut and thoroughly clean the mating surfaces. The reinstall the thermocouple nut firmly. Any corrosion or dirt in this area can cause the thermocouple to no pass the milli-volt signal to the gas valve. Test the pilot light after cleaning.
If you still have the problem after doing the above remove the thermocouple and carry it to any well know appliance parts supply OR home heating and air conditioning supply and purchase a thermocouple. The thermocouples are not brand specific. What you need to make sure of is that the length and mounting hardware are the same.
I am pretty sure this is all you need to do.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
