Hi, this heater doesn't have a thermocouple, it uses a pilot generator which is more reliable so I doubt you need to change it out. First thing to check is that you have a clean "sharp" blue pilot, you should be able to hear it quietly roar. If it is yellow and appears "soft", the pilot need to be cleaned. The easiest way is to use a straw or tubing of some sort to blow into the pilot, gently tapping the pilot assembly. That should clean it up and heat the pilot generator properly. Tighten the the screw terminals at the control valve to assure good electrical connections and last but not least turn off the thermostat until you get a standing pilot. Good luck and stay warm.

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.
