I have Laars Lite2 125k BTU Propane. pilot stay lit and after some time hear click sound in gas valve but it will not fired up and also pilot goes off right away.

It sounds like you need to replace the pilot generator. This is the metal cylinder that sets in the flame of the pilot and supplies voltage to the system. When it gets weak, it will support the pilot valve to remain open, but when the main valve tries to open the pilot generator cannot provide enough electricity, and everything shuts down. It's a prime suspect in your situation.

I need to order a gas valve for a Laars Lite 2 Model LG250P

Usually unless you are a Licensed Gas or Pool company the odds of someone selling you a gas valve to install yourself are slim to none.

Pilot is lit, but burner will not come on. I jumped TH/PP to TH then burner comes on. Pilot generator = 350mV.

More than likely the tempature control is defective, since you effectively bypassed that connection. I found a manual for your unit which shows different types of ignition. I'm not even sure if the millivolt system is covered in this manual. Here's the sight

I have the exact same problem

I've had the problem twice. The company told me 500mv on the pilot generator was too low. 3 years ago I replaced the pilot generator and that seemed to fix it. This year same thing, 500mv on the pilot generator, I replaced again and this time didn't fix it and was still 500mv. After poking into everything, here's what I conclude:
- 500mv on the pilot generator is fine, maybe even less.
- you can check the valve and the amount of current the pilot generator provides by clipping a wire from the white to the black on the valve. If this forces the burner on your pilot gen is strong enough and the valve works. Be careful running it this way though, because it bypasses all the safety devices.
- Then check the safety switches and wires. I used an ohmmeter and started working my way from the valve through the fusible link, pressure switch, etc. With that method I found high resistance in a wire from the fusible link when I jiggled the wire. I bypassed just the link, and it's working fine. I've also gone through several pressure switches over the years and a control module as well.
- Everything fails in this heater. It's just a tough environment. the wires and connectors corrode. I live in the northeast, and now in the winter I take out the burner, control module, and thermostat/switch module and wrap a tarp over it. I guess next year I'll pull out the fusible link too, or maybe just solder the connections.
