Got a new one for you. A couple of weeks ago we got a lot of rain around here and our basement got flooded. Twice. Both times, the water got high enough to douse the pilot light. Each time, I got the pilot re-lit and everything was working fine. This past weekend, we went out of town on vacation and when we came back the pilot was out again. We got some rain while we were away but not enough to flood. This time when I went to relight the pilot, it would light but it wouldn't stay lit. Could the flooding have damaged the feeder or something?
It's a Rheem model 21V40-7 and according to the energy savings label was built in 1994.

Reason: Wrong model number and figured out how old it was
Just wanted to let you know that the new thermocouple worked just fine. I haven't had a chance to go back in and re-center the burner. I tried to identify the new burner part in the parts catalog but I wasn't sure which one it was. Do I have to buy the entire burner assembly?
