In response to Re: reliance 501 water heater
If the pilot stays lit and the thermostat is turned to the full on position, and the burner will not come on then the control is bad. I normally do not replace gas controls unless the heater is fairly new, since they are expensive and by the time they fail, the heater is old enough that it could start leaking within a short time and require changing anyway.

.: Does not ignite any more when I turn the termostat. I replaced the termocople and have a good pilot light. Where can I get a new fitting termostat (if you think I need that)?
: Thanks
