Pilot light goes out


Hey all,

The last couple of mornings I'm waking up to a freezing cold house and a gas heater with a pilot light that is out. Non of the other gas appliances have lost their pilot so it's not a gas problem. I'm new to gas, is this normal or the symptom of a problem?

Thanks

It is not normal and is a problem. Could have a bad thermocouple or dirty pilot burner etc etc. Post a pic of the unit and brand and model # to get more help.

There was a small crack in the box that allowed some of the air to get the combustion chamber and blow out the pilot light. When the gas cycled off the flame left and the coupling closed.

Hanks guys ... Now we all know and I have a new heater.
