If you can not,do this,take a piece of 3/16 tubing,and cut it to fit over the pilot light,and make sure the tubing is cut long enough to extend into the flame of the pilot light,this will save you money,and time,most of the time the problem with the pilot light is,that it burns away over time,and does not stay into the flame .If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
What you are experiencing is the lack of a signal from the thermocouple to the gas valve. I.e. the thermocouple is not passing heat information at all. This is caused by either a defective thermocouple, a dirty mating area where the thermocouple connects to the gas valve or... an improperly positioned thermocouple that is not "in the flame" with the pilot lit.
You can remove your old thermocouple and walk in to almost any appliance parts supply or Plumbing and heating supply to purchase the correct thermocouple without a part number. They will match it up with yours.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

It sounds as though the Thremal couple is bad . some haave fire eyes . check to see that the little tube is in contact with the flame when you light the piolet and hold it for a minute or so . if it goesout again then it is most likey the thermocouple lead. hope this helps let me know Jon
