Question about DeLonghi Heating & Cooling
You need to replace the thermocouple. This is a small metal rod that is positioned in such a manner that when the pilot light is burning, the flame is contacting the thermocouple. When heated by the flame, the thermocouple produces a very small amount of electricity that it sends to the gas valve. The valve then interperets the electricity as confirmation that the pilot is burning and it is safe to conitinue delivering gas. Thermocouples wear out and stop producing power. The gas valve thinks that the pilot has gone out and thus turns the gas off for safety.
Please rate my solution Fix-Ya as I put alot of effort into the detail and accuracy of my solutions.
