Question about Heating & Cooling
Sounds like your thermocouple is shot.It's that little tube that the pilot light heats up.I am assuming that you have started this heater before.The thermocouple has to stay a certain temperature to keep the gas flowing.You can buy universal thermocouple kits at your local hardware store.Make sure gas is turned off.Loosen the coupling nut on the outside of the tank then remove the tin and remove the heating part.The whole thing is a small 1/8 tube.Bend new one like the old one and put it back in place.If the kit has yellow Teflon tape wrap the threads on the coupling and tighten.Turn the gas back on and test for leaks with soapy water.Thanks for choosing FixYa.com.
