Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly.

So the pilot will not stay lit anymore? If not you may have a bad thermocouple for the unit. Have you tried to test it with a Millivolt meter?

no i did not test with millivolt meter...the pilot was on, but I thought I would turn off and try to restart when I jumped the thermostat and the fp would not come on.Now the pilot won't even relite..should I get a new thermocouple?
