Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It sounds like the thermocoupler is bad. I had similar issues with a machine, as long as I left the cover off it would stay lit but as soon as I tried to install the cover it would snuff out the pilot. It could be lit with some difficulty and would work good as long as I left the cover off then it finally got to where it would work sometimes for an hour or two and go out or maybe two or three days and go out. I finally figured out that the thermocoupler was not sending the proper information back to the gas valve in order for the valve to work properly which was causing my problem. I replaced the thermocoupler and haven't had a problem since then(about two years now).
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
