OK
If you replaced the thermocouple and it did not solve the problem it sounds like that gas control valve is at fault. I would also want to verify the LP pressure at the back of the tank to make sure it is correct but it would be hard for you to do without a manometer. Below is a service manual for you if you do not have one, it might help some. Robert
