Question about Water Water Heaters
Try removing the thermocouple where it attaches to gas control, and spray a little WD-40 in the hole, then spin a rolled up small piece of steel wool in the hole as well, then blow it out with compressed air if you can. Then reconnect thermocouple. Make sure thermocouple tip is getting good flame under it, and if that doesn't cure it, then it's time to replace gas control.

Did you make sure the connection between the thermocouple and the control is tight and that the tip of the thermocouple is in the flame?

Your on right track. When this happens and small flame still there, pull wire(s) off at gas valve, or test for voltage from ECO to gas valve. No voltage, then there should be no gas. Change gas valve.

Testimonial: "Changed the gas valve, now heater works as it should, No fumes and no flame after shutoff."
Make sure flame is good under thermocouple probe so that it gets proper sensing of flame, and if that's o.k., before you change gas control, remove thermocouple fitting where it attaches to gas control and spray wd-40 in the hole and twirl up some steel wool and push it in the hole and twirl it to try and clean the surface inside there as well. Then spray it out with WD-40 once more to flush out shavings etc, and if you have compressed air, blow it out as well. Now re-attach fitting and snug it, then re-try pilot again. If it works, great if not replace gas control. Let me know the results. You do realize that it should be a certified technician who changes that gas control if necessary, correct?
