Question about DeLonghi Heating & Cooling
When i hold down the more gas button it causes the huge flame then i take my finger off and it goes out no heat nothing
SOURCE: pilot light will not stay lit
Clean the pliot light tube with a Q-Tip and alcohol. Clean 2 inches deep. This will increase the pilot light flame and it will heat up the thermocoupler so it will stay lit.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

THE flame from the pilot should shoot past the thermo-couple and heat this up and make a small amount of mili- amps to prove the pilot light is lit. ..So if the flame doesn,t go past the thermo-couple it won, make mili-amps or its tme to change out the thermo-couple, They only cost lest than $8:00 and you can change it!

Thr thing you need to do is take the pilot assembly all apart and blow the dust and dirt out of it.
After burning for many, many hours the air that is move up through the pilot assembly leaves dust and dirt which plugs off a bit of the air and makes the flame run rich. Meaning that it does not get enough air mixed in for complete combustion.
When you clean it you will see the dirt and dust com out of it.
Reassemble carefully just as you took it apart and it will be back to working great again!!
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!

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,
