Question on manual stove pilot light.

Customer (PF13x160): 

I have a question on the operation of the pilot light (manual light version) of my current burner. If I light the main burner and turn the valve to ignite the pilot light, it will simply extinguish if I turn off the main burner. I’m wondering what the purpose is for the pilot light, since I cannot ignite it without the main burner being lit.


The pilot flame needs to be maintained about ½”~1” in length.   If too long pilot flame, it becomes yellow.  If too short, it can go out easily.    Hope this helps.
