Yes, exactly. I light the pilot, holding the button down, and it burns normally. But, as soon as I turn the knob to ON, the pilot goes out. Or, if I let up on the pilot button, it goes out as well. I've tried lighting the main burner by turning the switch to ON, then trying to light it manually. No go.
Any idea if there is a way to test the temp sensor? I assume that if it did not register the heat from the pilot, it would prevent the main burner from starting, right?
Any help greatly appreciated....
Oh, one more piece of info, when I bought trailer, I was able to get the water heater to work, but barely. It always wanted to go out, or not burn very clean and evenly. What about cleaning the
"regulator", or what ever you call the device with the switch , main burner, etc... on it.
