Looking at the manual that Denise posted, it looks like the thermocouple works like I thought it did. Check out the trouble shooting section toward the end the the manual. You may just need to reposition the tip of the probe and/or make sure the other end is properly attached to the valve assembly.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
