SOURCE: pilot won't stay lit
Your unit has a "vent safety limit switch" which is a high temperature limit. It gets hot enough to trip over time because you do not have proper venting. It is a safety switch and SHOULD NOT be disabled - instead find and fix the venting problem(chimney bad?)!

Sounds like the thermostat for the blower motor (not the gas thermostat) has shorted. Remove front cover on stove. Follow the wires from the blower motor back to the blower thermostat. Replace with new one. Blower model # DRB-1.

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.

SOURCE: need a gas valve for
Being an ECS dealer, I'm not aware of a recall. The following link will give you a list of master parts dealers that you should use, if your heater is no longer under warranty. Select the one closest to where you live. http://www.empirecomfort.com/EMPIRECOMFORT/pdf2010/forms/Master-Parts-Distributors.pdf
If your heater is still under warranty and you still have your Proof of Purchase. Order the part through your local Empire Dealer.
Hope this helps you get the gas control valve you need.
