Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will assist you today
I would bet they are not built where they used to be. We are getting parts now that used to be made in the USA (don't know where you are from ) then they were made in Mexico and now they are made in China. We go through the same thing with capacitors.
You might check that the thermocouple is not getting too hot. That could be that it is in the main burner flame or the pilot too much. A simple adjustment like this may help
What can I do to adjust the pilot light?
there should be a pilot adjustment on the gas valve
follow the 1/4" aluminum tube back from the pilot
it may have a little cap over it that unscrews
then you can get to the adjustment screw.
are you near enough you can go look at it?
I will wait
You do not want the thermocouple getting flame from the main burner.
no, I will have to look at it tonight.
can I assist you further?
no, thank you.
