My YS640 will be three years old in July. The thermocouple has a lot of gunky grease and/or creosote buildup on it which makes me wonder if it is reading the temperatures correctly. Should the thermocouple be cleaned periodically? If so, what is the recommended process?

I do. I just take a stainless scrub pad and wipe it off when I do a major cleaning/scraping. You don't want to get it wet. If water seeps in it can ruin the bits inside,

IF it is really dirty, I squirt simple Green on it and let it sit a bit, then use a green scratch pad to gently clean it.
