You have to remove the burner to clean the screen. But you can try resetting the gas valve first which might solve the problem. To do this turn the temp knob to OFF then disconnect the plug on the bottom of the gas valve from the thermopile. Then wait 3 minutes and plug it back in then relight the pilot.
There are 2 female spade type thermopile connectors on the bottom of the gas valve.
Sorry only got 1 word in your last response
No the thermopile is the flame sensor in the pilot flame. Like I said in a previous response there are 2 female wire connectors on the bottom of the gas control valve (where you adust the water temp). That what you have to disconnect.
The 2 connectors are separate and on the right side of the gas valve. NOTE which color goes on which post so you put them back on the right terminal. They just pull straight (down) off.
Red & White wires
Red should be on the left and white on the right. You might need needle nose pliers to pull them off. If you can't get them off there's nothing else you can do by yourself.
Do you have any more questions?
