Does the pilot have a strong flame too it? it shouldn't get blown out during light, unless you have too high of gas pressure...this would cause the flame to blow out. Where is the main fuel burner regulator?
I could see if the gas pressure coming in was too low that the main burners would starve the 1/4" pilot burner and cause it to flame out. The regulator or main shut off valve for the system could have a semi-clogged orifice.
Hey Viper16, I think you are on to something.
The pilot light seems strong, blue flame, no flickering, will burn for days until we demand the furnace, then all is well until the furnace cycles off.
We moved since last winter, bought a new propane tank and regulator (at the tank). Maybe they sold us the wrong regulator? Plus, maybe some trash got into the system.
I will have the pressure checked and see if the main burner is starving the pilot, but the furnace flame seems strong.
Maybe as you said, it is too strong.
The pilot seems strong, doesnt go out by itself, and it is windy here.
Thanks for the idea, i was reaching on this one.
