Pilot will not light in my Kenmore Model 153.336464 Water Heater.

The thermocouple was replaced a couple of months ago, now the pilot will not light. Prior to this the pilot light was very weak, could barely see it. I've cleaned the air vents, not dirty, and checked the small gas line going from the gas valve to the pilot and it's also clean. Could it be the a faulty gas valve unit, and is it hard to replace? Any info would be appreciated, thanks.
