I have an Enerco Group 30,000-80,000 BTU heater

I have an Enerco Group 30,000-80,000 BTU/HR heater that puts out a lot of soot. At minimum valve opening the flame is totally yellow and at maximum valve opening the flame is blue about half way up then becomes yellow. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

The pilot goes out when the heater cycles


The thermocouple is not working correctly. sometimes you can clean the soot build up from it and it will work again. sometimes they just need replacing. the thermocouple is what the pilot light flame heats up when you turn on the heater. when the thermocouple gets hot it sends a 20 to 60 millivolt signal to the gas valve to activate the gas flow to the main burner.
