Question about Heating & Cooling
You probably have a bad thermocouple/pilot generator. This is a tube that is in the pilot flame when the pilot is lit. If the gas valve doesn't get a good reading from it, the gas valve won't allow ant flow. They are easy to replace, a thermocouple has a copper tube that inserts into the body of the gas valve, a pilot generator has two wire leads. The gas MUST be turned off while you change it out. If it's a tube type (thermocouple), be careful not to kink the copper tube during installation.
