A pilot light is a tiny flame produced by gas which is kept burning so that it can work as an ignition supply for a more potent gas burner. To clean a pilot light, switch off the equipment and let it cool down. Take out the nuts that hold the pilot gas line and place the thermocouple on top of a used towel. Use a brush to scour the soot stained areas. Put back the pilot light, fastening the thermocouple to its original place.
