Question about Heating & Cooling
Call a service engineer tomorrow morning. The thermocouple has a shade over the top to prevent the flame being blown out, yours is either fallen off or needs adjusting. Also the pilot jet might need cleaning or replacing. It MAY need a new thermocouple but it sounds as if it is doing its job.

Yes, this a symptom when the heat exchanger has a crack in it. Get someone there today! If there is a crack, you could be exposing yourself to Carbon Monoxide! GET IT CHECKED NOW.

if this is electronic ignition you have a dirty flame sensor.
If you have a standing pilot light you should remove, dismantle and clean the pilot assembley.
Makec sure you clean the small gas oriface located inside the pilot assembly.
When you put it back together I would install a thermocoupling. Can be purchased for about $10 -$14 at any hardware store.

Sounds like the pilot is dirty....when dirty it gets smaller and lazy...tends to go out easy...try gently tapping it with a screwdriver...make the pilot bluer and bigger....when it's dirty it has yellow tips or yellow completely , the pilot should fully envelope the thermocouple as well

Get a toothbrush and clean the **** off the pilot, could be partially blocked. Change the safety thermocouple. Check the plenum for cracks. A cracked heat exchanger can cause this.
