My question. Is it possible for the gas pilot "safe lit" thermocouple to have a "soft" failure. By that I mean I can easily relight the pilot, but as noted it may go out several days later. If yes, I am I correct that it is easy to replace that thermocouple??
BTW Is it possible, when relighting, that I may have inadvertenly physically moved the thermocouple, so it is not now optimally located above the pilot light? I am not sure I would recognize that issue ?? Note: When relighting, I have not noticed any extensive delay (ala slow to heat up, due to placemant before the pilot remains on, ergo themocouple active on.
