Question about Montgomery Ward (223600UP) Heater

1 Answer

Wall furnace model # SFB50146B Thermal Coupler. Does it have 2 wires?

I am working on a "made for Montgomery Wards" wall furnace for some elderly people. Pilot light is working however the burners never kick on. Suspected the thermal coupler, so purchased one from my work and went to install it. Upon arrival, I notice a small copper tube, which I thought was the thermal coupler, but it was open on the top and hooked into a port marked "bleed" on the control valve. The new suspected thermal coupler runs down and has a red and white wire hooked up on the front of the control valve. So my question this the thermal coupler and is there anyway to check it to see if that is the problem?

If the pilot light stays lit, but the burners don't kick on, it's a problem with the thermostat or thermostat wiring, or a problem with the valve inside the gas actuator

Have a wall heater thats wont stay lit think i need to change the thermal coupler. what do you think

Check and make sure the pilot flame is hitting the thermocoupler.Flame must touch thermocoupler, if the flame is not touching it, you may have to remove and clean pilot orfice to make flame stronger. check this before replacing thermocoupler, good luck.

I need a new thermostat for a Montgomery Ward SFB50145B wall furnace but I do not know what model or brand to get. Carlos R.

If this is a gas wall heater, any millivolt thermostat will work. Thats millivolt as opposed to a 24 volt type. There should be only 2 wires and the thermostat is just a switch.

Hi i have a montgomery wards riding mower 1990

I might know what the problem is, on those models there should be a ignition switch, or a killswitch under the seat of the mower. When the 2 people sat on it, it might have jarred or broke the switch. You might want to check it to see if thats your problem. I hope this might help.
