I wonder if the problem you’re having is similar to the problem I’m having. My pilot goes out when the burner cycles off at anything over about 100 deg F. But if I leave the thermostat setting low, my pilot will stay lit–I’m not sure for how long since the water at that temp isn’t very useable, and I just keep going to the garage and relighting the pilot every few hours.

See my rather lengthy post with a description of what’s been going on, and see if that’s similar to what’s happening with your heater.

Monday the thermostat gets replaced, so I’ll let you know whether or not that solves my problem.

Best of luck with your water heater, Todd
