take the thermo couple loose at the regulator { the block where your on off pilot button is. The thermo is the round solid piece that sets in pilot flame so you can trace it back to the reg, after taking it out of the reg just scrub the end on your pants leg real good and make it real shiney then reinstall it and try lighting again also chek and make sure the bulb is clean and right in the piolot flame if that doesn,t work you'll probably need a new thermo couple
