Question about Heating & Cooling
Most likely is the flame sensor, or thermocouple that tells the gas valve to function. If this is not reading a flame the gas valve closes and you get no pilot light. Look at your heater and find the thermocouple that is located just above where the pilot light flame would be. Make sure it is clean and not covered in soot. If it is clean replace it with a new one, these are available at all hardware stores. If the problem still persists then you have a bad gas valve and it needs replaced.
