Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

There is no reset button on the controller of this model. Depending on which gas valve it has there might be one on an overtemp sensor on the burner compartment access panel. If you can light the pilot but it goes out when you release the dial/knob then you probably need a new thermopile/thermocouple. Some versions require a new pilot assembly. Can you give me a picture of the gas control valve?
