Thats what I thought...99% chance of a dirty plugged pilot. The unit has a very tiny hole for the pilot gas...these are notorious for plugging due to sitting extended periods of time without use and through weather. If you are handy....follow the aluminum tube from the gas valve to the pilot...remove the tube and blow/clean out pilot. This fixes the ilo code most all the time. Billy
