    I keep lighting the pilot and then switch over to burner, however even when the burner is heating, the whole thing goes out. It hasnt happened in a while but it started again. could it be the thermo-coupler?

    Hello: It could be the thermocouple or the way the pilot flame hits it (or doesn’t). The end of the thermocouple should be in good contact with the pilot and heater to a dark red. If it is already that way, replace the thermocouple.

    Yours, Larry
