I have a standing...

I have a standing pilot unit heater (75000 btu)

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

I replaced the pilot/thermocouple assembly this year. the unit lights just fine, but once it goes through a cycle and the main gas valve shuts off, the pilot also goes out.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If i can, I did install this unit, and i also replaced the main valve a few years ago.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nothing that i can think of

What is your second suggestion?

2. adjust air ventury air inlet less open and try and pilot assembly and burner a little further apart so that when burner flame goes out it will not suck pilot out
