hot pilot light supply line


Carrier furnace stopped working - noticed "yellow" pilot light. Removed and cleaned pilot light orfice - now have "blue" pilot light.

Problem: During restart procedure I turned on gas and then switched on power (per instructions on unit), unit has an electronic starter:

First, I heard the gas supply come on to the pilot light before I switched on the power - it then lit the pilot light and the burners iginited - everything seems fine:

Second, I noticed the pilot light supply line became VERY HOT.

Third, when the burners shut down (when room temperature reached setting) I noticed the pilot NEVER SHUTS OFF.

Question: Do I have a bad thermocoupler that is not shutting off the supply of gas to the pilot, or is there another sensor failing?

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks Dennis

This isn't making sense to me.

Do you have an electric start, or a standing pilot unit?
