Question about Heating & Cooling
Also to add to last answer if the thermocouple looks burnt out like a crack or just burnt off it needs replaceing at a guess about 100 bucks for part and should be the same for labour to repair as should take about an hour to change

The thermocoupleis about 3/16" in diameter and slides up through a hole right beside the pilot flame. Sometimes it doesn'tget pushed up far enough to come out the top into the flame. check the bottom of the pilot assemblynext to the silver pilot tubing, there the thermocouple is attached to a very small copper tube( 1/16") and this tube runs back to the gas valve. If it is there see if you can push iy up into the hole next to the silver tubing. unless the thermocouple can feel the flame the pilot will not stay lit, Hope this helps.
