if you are familiar with the thermopile...it is the fat rod in the pilot assembly. It generates millivolts for the gas valve...

In this case you have 3 options

no gas

bad gas valve

Bad thermopile

If you have gas then it is down to 2...and the thermopile is much cheaper than the valve to start with
