Assuming the pilot is clean and sharp. Before replacing the valve, clean any spade connections, those going up to the spill switch in particular. Clean and tighten all 4 connections. Good luck.

I would suspect not. It's very, very rare for a control valve to go bad, unless someone tried to force it to urn with a pair of pliers or something similar.
If you have provided annual service to the heater, it's probably just residual gas remaining in the burners. To test this theory, turn the flames down to low and then turn the burner OFF. Do the burners and the pilot light go out? If it doesn't, you'll be that rare consumer that needs the Control Valve replaced.
Just to help you out a little bit more. I have provided a link to the Owners Manual for your heater. It's in a downloadable, printable, pdf format.
Hope this helps. Please let me know.
