SOURCE: How to reset vent safety switch
the reset is at the top left side of the furnace. take the cover off n press the red button. the switch could be failing but CHECK drafting through the furnace. hold a flame at the top of the furnace n make sure its pulling inward. u could have a blocked vent pipe or vent cap which will cause excessive heat n tip the safety switch. good luck!

Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

This heater has 2 type gas valves one valve has the thermostat built into it. No wiring needed for that puppy. Looks like this:
So I am guessing that one ain't you.
Your heater must use a millivolt gas valve with the 2 wire wall thermostat. The pilot generator does 2 things. It holds the pilot on and it produces voltages that operate the solenoid and open and close the valve when the room thermostat makes contacts. So what goes wrong with these? The pilot generator will sometimes hold the pilot flame but whn the 2 wires are touched together or you tun on the wall thermostat the whole thang just dies. That my friend is a weak thermopile generator. The other thang that goes wrong is the solenoid on the gas valve is open and therefore the gas won't come on. Their is also a fuse mounted on there that melts and kills the magnet that the generator holds in for the pilot.
