One time this happened to me on a gas stove. I used an electric drill with drill bit to clean it out. It will only work if the line is straight, no bends in the line.

Did you clean the pilot orfice?? It has a very small opening about the size of a hair. You may have to use a needle to open the opening....Are you getting gas to the pilot orfice assembly from the Gas Valve when you set it to Pilot?? If not then check the pilot adjustment screw on top of the gas valve at the pilot tube. CW decreases flow.

How do I clean the thermo coupler tube?

Most of the time if you are having a problem with keeping the pilot lite and you supect the thermocouple. Just replace it, cleaning it won't help unless its the pilot not burning right then taking a wire brush to it helps and blowing it with an air compressor. You can also use a wire brush on the thermocouple if it has a lot of deposit on it. If the pilot orfice is blocked then blowning it out with air or opening it up with a broach needle. Good Luck

If it has been off for a while there might be a spider web in the orfice.
You would need to remove the pilot assembly and unscrew teh orfice to see if there is something blocking the orfice.

Gas is on pilot won t light

Hello there: The problem you mention is not that clear. The pilot won't light or the pilot lighted but won't stay on is two different problems. If the pilot won't even light or no gas coming out off the pilot when you push down the pilot button it means the pilot orfice is blocked and what it need is cleaning the pilot orfice. If the pilot light is on but goes off when you release the button then the thermopile need to be changed. Hope this can help.

Pilot light keeps going out

Either the pilot light orfice is dirty, and you will need to pull it out and clean it, or the thermocouple is bad. If the pilot goes out as soon as you let the button go then it is most likely the thermocouple. If the pilot stays lit for a few days or hours then you will need to clean the pilot orfice, heres how:
1 turn off the gas supply
2 unhook the main burner gas line from the thermostat, this is the line that goes to the burner
3 unhook the pilot supply line it is usually next to the main burner line
4 unhook the thermocouple from the thermostat
5 remove the burner assembly
6 take the orfice out of the pilot line and clean it out by blowing thru it, use an air compressor if needed.
7 reassemble and light pilot

Pilot light keeps going out

probably need to clean the pilot orfice out. You will have to pull the entire burner assembly to get it out. Pull the tube going to the pilot light out and the orfice will be in the end closest to the pilot light. Once you get it out there might be a white fuzzy substance on it, clean it off, the hole in the orfice is very small, DO NOT make it any bigger, find something to push thru it like a single strand off a wire brush. After cleaning re assemble and re light, this should cure your pilot problems.

The pilot light will not stay lit. A new

Try cleaning the orfice for the pilot light. You will have to dis-assemble the fuel lines from the thermostat to the burner to get at it. The orfice has an extremly small hole in it, do not make it any larger, just clean it out.

I can't get the pilot light on my furnace to stay lit.

take out the pilot assembly. there is a small burner and an orfice. the orfice does get clogged if it has not been operated for awhile. you can clean it out with a small sewing needle. if the pilot wont light or stay lit, replace the thermocouple.
