This is caused by a failing pilot safty bypass inside the gas valve itself. You will need to replace the gas valve.

Pilot lights only while depressing knob. Once knob is released to turn to on position the pilot goes out. Bad thermalpile?


It can take a up to a minute for the thermocouple to get hot enough to latch, the flame is to low, not in the position to hit the thermocouple or just bad. Some valves need to be turned to the ON position after lighting the pilot and waiting for the thermocouple to get hot. Sometimes the nut that holds the tube to the valve comes loose and requires being tightened but not to tight.

If pilot stay lit, then thermocouple is working.
If pilot will light, then you have gas. If pilot goes out when pilot button is released, then thermocouple is next suspect.

Thermocouple tip must sit in pilot flame.
The pilot light heat applied to two different metals inside thermocouple causes small current.
The current travels back to gas control valve through copper line.
If the gas valve receive this current, then a magnetic switch stays open and allows gas into the gas control valve.
The magnetic switch is on the end of the red button you push down when lighting pilot. Essentially the red button is an override to the magnetic switch.
If the gas control valve does not receive the current, then the magnetic switch does not stay open when you release the red button.
When replacing thermocouple, note that it is not screwed very tight into the gas control valve. Finger tight + 1/4 turn. If it is overtightened, then the small thermocouple current shorts out against the gas control body.

Check if the unit receives the right amount of fuel as stated on its nameplate, if it does, check all wires for loose connections, Milli volt wont pass on loose wiring. If this does not correct the problem, you have to replace the gas valve, the main valve coil may be shorted that's why the pilot is shut when main valve is energized.

My pilot won't stay on i've tried several times.


Your problem is easy and frequent. The pilot light should heat up the thermouple which in return by the heat will keep the valve on for pilot light first and the burner light.

So either the pilot light is not reaching the thermocouple - this only if someone moves the pilot light

Or the thermocouple became weak and can hold the gas valve open - so replace the thermocouple with new one.

There is a very small possibility that the gas valve is faulty but you should replace the thermocouple in any case which is very cheap first and is the most possible cause.

I have a gas fryer (pitco) that has no electric running to it,why does it have wires running from the thermocoupling


The thermopile on gas operated equipment acts as small voltage generator when heated that energizes the pilot valve and main valve of the gas valve,. Without it, you will not be able to fire up your fryer.

Pitco rtg 14 gas pilot goes out


Sounds to me the thermopile (thermocouple) is at fault, it's a safety device to detect if the pilot flame is alight or not. If the pilot should go out for any reason, the thermopile will detect this & shutdown the gas valve (ie the unit will cease to operate).
A new thermopile should solve your problem. It's not a task I would attempt yourself if you are in any doubt.

Pilot light will not stay lit


You can not check a thermocouple by resistence. You have to check it by millivoltage when it is hot and sensing it should be above 500mv. I would be willing to bet that you have some type of particulate in the gas valve that is causing this problem.

Pitco fryer pilot out


if you changed the thermopile and still have the same problem make sure that the sensing bulb is directly over the flame. If it is and the thermopile is installed correctly the next thing would be the gas valve.

Hope this helps
