SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit
Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

It is most likely the water valve stuck open, telling the controls to heat water, that it thinks is flowing through it, but without actual flow it overheats. Depending on how comfortable you are with taking it apart yourself, you could open the valve to see if it just needs cleaned out, or if you have a ruptured diaphragm or some other cause.

This is more than likely the thermocoupler. The thermo Coupler is a solid cylinder shape with a point on one end and a thick aluminum wire on the other the tip is situated so that it is in the pilot flame. When it reaches a certain temperature from the pilot it sends a signal for the gas valve to stay open and keep the pilot light. If it does not send the signal the valve closes and shuts the gas off for safety. Solution first make sure you hold button long enough to heat Thermocoupler (about 30 sec) if pilot still goes out then replace Thermocoupler. Can purchase at most hardware stores and all plumbing shops.
