What kind of flame is the pilot light of a gas stove?
Can not get pilot light to light on the fireplace?
If holding the controls in the LIGHT position for about 15-30 seconds does not keep your pilot lit, there is probably a problem with the thermocouple. That is the small tube that the pilot flame touches. Be sure it is not bent, and being missed by the pilot flame. They do go bad, and require replacement.

What is the problem when the gas pilot light goes out when the knob is turned to on?
There are two possible causes for this: 1. The pilot light is dirty. You can tell if the flame is a yellow color. If this is the case, it will need to be removed and cleaned. 2. The thermocouple is weak. This is the rod that the flame burns on. It is a safety device to show a pilot flame is on before main gas is allowed to the burners.

This is the gold rod that must see the flame in order to keep the gas valve open. it is a safety device that will not let the gas vavle open if there is no pilot. 2. The pilot is dirty and has a yellow flame. If this is the case, it will have to be cleaned.

How do you relight the pilot-light of the home heating furnace?
Turn the knob on the top of the gas valve to "Pilot" and hold it down. Put your match or lighter near the pilot and it should light. Continue holding the knob down for about 30 seconds then release, and the pilot should stay lit. If it goes out then you may need to replace the thermocouple (the gold color rod that the pilot flame burns on) or have the pilot cleaned if it has a yellow flame.

Where is the furnace pilot located?
The gas furnace pilot (flame is lit all the time) is sometimes referred to as a pilot light, but no matter what you call it, its purpose is to serve as a small ignition flame for the gas burner. And when this little flame fails to operate properly or go out, it's one of the most common reasons a gas furnace will fail to operate.
