The voltage from a pilot should be a minimum of 30 milli volts, the thermocouple sensor must be in the blue part of the pilot flame and NOT in the yellow, or away from the crown of the flame...the most common cause of this issue is a bad connection where the thermocouple screws into the 100% safety valve, unscrew the thermocouple and clean with an ink pen eraser and screw it in again trying once more. If the unit has been dormant a while have someone hold the button while its lit, then have someone else at the same time tap the safety valves aluminum body with the plastic handle of a screw driver a couple of times sharply but lightly...this oft unsticks a moody safety valve.

My fridge ignites just fine, but as soon as I take my finger off the knob the pilot goes out again. I held that knob down way over the 60 seconds it says to, and it is lighting up just fine. Soon as I release the knob the pilot goes completely out. I am doing it in the dark so I can see that the pilot died out. Any suggestions???
