I have a floor heater that my parents dont use often. My father turned up the thermostat and it wont turn on. The pilot stays lit. It did eventually turn on and now the flame stays a little higher (or burns higher) than the normal little pilot light.

1. Does this sound like a thermostat problem?
2. Could it be a thermocouple?
3. Could it be a gas valve down there?
4. Please any suggestions

I think there is a problem with your thermostat and it is also advisable to check up your whole unit too. If it was not used often, it might already build up some dirt inside it.
