Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Canon Coalridge B F gas fire Serial Number 02787. I note that there was a product recall in 1998 from the London fire Brigade owing to the need for a modification due to these fires not igniting properly. In the case of my fire the pilot will ignite on the 4/5th try but aftre waiting the requisite 10 seconds for the pilot to stabilize and then releasing the knob the pilot is then extinguished. The thermocouple has been replaced but I still have this problem. Any ideas ?

SOURCE: I have been told that

I think before I went to the expence of buying a new fire place I would remove old thermocouple and take it to a heating equipment supply house and see if they can find a replacement. Most equipment manufactures don't make their own controls, such as thermocouples,gas valves ,sensors and other equipment. Many chain stores such as true value have good knowedgable people and if they don't have what you need they may know someone that does. I hope this helps you. thanks

SOURCE: after igniting pilot and allowing gas to continue

sounds like you need a new thermocouple. Its the sensor that sits in the pilot flame and has a copper tube going back to the gas valve. All you need to know to get one is its length. They are cheap and usually found in hardware stores, It sends a signal to the gas valve, telling it that there is a flame once it gets hot.

SOURCE: try to ignite pilot on

First, I'm assuming you have a residential Gas-Fired Heater or Water Heater that you are having problems with. My answer is based on this assumption.

Most thermocouples require that you hold the button for at least 45 seconds. Try holding the button for 60 seconds prior to releasing it. If this does not work, you can test your new thermocouple if you have a multimeter...preferably one with an alligator clip for your leads. To test your thermocouple, disconnect the end that screws into your gas valve. Set your multimeter to read Milivolts. Put your red lead on the copper line of the thermocouple.....it's easier if you have an alligator clip. With your pilot lit, hold down the button for 45 seconds and continue to hold while you put the black lead of your tester on the very end of the thermocouple (the part that attaches to the gas valve). You should read a minimum of 12 milivolts. If you do not read 12 milivolts, your new thermocouple is bad. If you are reading 12 milivolts, screw it back into the gas valve, relight, hold the button for minimum 45 seconds. Release the button. If the pilot goes out immediately, the problem (>99% probability) is with your gas valve.

SOURCE: Pilot light ignites, but fire

Not sure what type of gas appliance you're having a problem with. If it's a vent-free gas heater, fireplace or gas log set, this problem is usually associated with a clogged Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS), which is a safety feature. In addition, based on the age of your unit and whether or not it has had regular annual maintenance, it could be the Thermocouple or Thermopile has failed. The latter can occur with both Vent-free and Vented Gas appliances.

If you will get back to me through the comment section of this page, with more specific details of what you have, I can help you further.

SOURCE: Valor flamenco unigas 2 fire

Valor uses either a Thermocouple or Thermopile, depending on the unit. In some cases, it has both. And, yes, your assumption is probably correct. Some thermocouples are a part of the Pilot Assembly, which means you have to replace entire pilot assembly. If you check you Owners Manual in the Parts Breakdown section, it will indicate if it is or not and whether you need a Thermocouple or Thermopile or both.

If you're not familiar with repairing gas fireplaces, replacing the parts listed above, can be a little challenging. Especially if you don't have the proper tools. But, before you jump on this project, try cleaning the Pilot Orifice first. You can easily do this, using canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) by blowing out the pilot tip. And while you're at it, clean all around the pilot assembly with the canned air. If cleaning the pilot solved your problem, you're back in business. If it didn't you'll have to go the other route.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please be kind enough to rate my reply to you. Thanks!

I would normally give a pointer to articles I have already posted this response on, but as this is such a potentially serious matter, I have posted my entire response here for you.

According to several sources I have checked, including the London METRO magazine ( http://www.metro.co.uk/news/868330-beko-fridge-freezers-fire-risk-warning-issued-to-homeowners-amid-recall ) The MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:

From what I can ascertain, the fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006 (So, after shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probably extend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008)
