pilot light going out
5 burner steam table, usually the lights on either end will go out, maybe once or twice a day. Tech has come out, and re-placed thermocouples, modules and such. Told kitchen staff same thing I have tried to tell...draft problem, but they insist it's the table itself. So just to prove our point, I said to re-place the parts, to a $1000 + bill. Pilots still going out. There are a couple of fans around, so I take them down (excuse to clean them) and monitor the situation. The ladies on night shift say they have no problems with them going out, just the day shift.
Question, how much of a draft does it take to blow out a pilot light? Any other solutions or things to try? Remember, working with women who "know it all"
