my hot water heater is doing the same thing as dussiej and tjmach. Have yall found any solutions to this yet? I light it, it fills the tank, heats it up and then shuts off...the pilot goes out.

my question is: the pilot light stays lit once i let up the ignite button, and the water heater heats the water. but when it's done heating, the pilot light goes out

This was one of the easiest DIY projects I've done. The directions say to remove all tubes/connections including taking out the burner. At least with my unit, the thermocouple was so easy to get to, that I was able to replace just this piece without touching anything else. Took about 5 mins.
