replaced thermocouple on rheem water heater now burner turn off
 
what is making the burner ti turn off after it lights up for a few minutes

With a new (and properly installed) thermocouple the pilot light should stay on.
At this point you turn the controls from light (or pilot) to on and turn up the thermostat.

If the pilot light stays on, the valve is in the correct position and the main burner won't ignite...
then the issue is likely the operating valve itself. It happens.
