are you sure the problem is with the thermocouple? is the pilot sharp and blue? it is unconnon for the magnet in a gas valve to go bad but it does happen. place the thermocouple in the valve and with it in front of you heat it with a match or lighter for 30 sec. now try and light the pilot quickly. if it lights the the problem would be the pilot, if not then the valve. is this a milivolt system or hydrolic t stat.

If you installed the new thermocouple, you may have overtightened it. It should be installed finger tight and only a quarter turn more. If it's to tight it won't allow the gas valve to open to light the burners. Be sure to turn the gas off, before attempting to work on the unit.

From what you have described, it sounds as if the Fan Control Switch, ECS Part # R-1941, which works in conjunction with the Limit Control Switch (ECS Part # 912073) is failing and needs to be replaced. You can order these parts directly from Empire Comfort Systems. If you decide to replace these parts yourself, it will give you an opportunity to thoroughly clean the interior of the Wall Furnace, if you haven't already. If you need further information, contact Empire Comfort Systems, Technical Service @ 800-851-3153 Monday - Friday.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot the problem. Please don't forget to rate my response. Thanks!
