Ok a couple things to check here would be a thermocouple or a flame switch depending on the the type of ignition source. If it has a standing (continious) pilot you need to look for a small copper line returning from the pilot source to the gas valve most likley this will be it. The other will be a small copper line returning to a switch with 2 wires on the backside this will be a flame switch. the thermocouple could most likley be purchased from your local hardware store but a flame switch will have to come from the heater manufacturer.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Pilot will not stay lit after button release


most likely you have a thermopile that has low output. it takes about 100mv to maintain pilot light

Pilot low when release button, goes out after turn on


Try replacing the pilot generator which is in the pilot assembly. It is the piece with a silver cable coming out of it and that cable splits open into a red and white wire at the gas valve, That piece holds the valve open once it is hot enough and is likely not putting out enough voltage to do its job.

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!
