Thermopile low voltage on water heater

I have a State Select Water Heater with a Honeywell Control system with Advanced Diagnostics. I am getting 2 flashes with the Status Light, which indicates Thermopile low voltage. I can get a new thermopile and replace it. However, I see a WHIRLPOOL Water Heater Tune-Up Kit for a few bucks more, Will that work with a Honeywell Control system?

Try cleaning thermopile first with emery cloth.

As far as I know you cannot change thermopile only on State water heater. You have to change whole pilot assembly as you cannot pull thermopile from the rubber seal that seals the burn chamber without cutting the ends.
