How does the thermocouple in a gas geyser work in a junkers wall mounted gas geyser?


Thermocouple sits in the pilot light flame and generates a small amount of electricity that tells the control that the pilot light is lit. If the pilot goes out, it shuts off gas so the place won't fill with gas and explode.

Pilot lite won't stay lit


Thermostat flame sensor. Do you see a little rod next to the pilot? That is what tells the main gas valve that the pilot is lit and it is safe to give gas. Easy swap, and you can usually just pick up a generic one.

How and where do I replace a thermocouple on a warm glo wall furnace? Help


There should be a thermocouple in front of the burners that has a copper colored wire that runs from the gas valve to the thermocouple. It is located in the pilot flame as it is a pilot proving switch that tells the gas valve the pilot is lit and its okay to open the gas valve to the main burner.

WE can get the pilot light lit but it will not stay on


You will need to check the pressure regulator for the gas.
It sounds like the gas pressure is to low to keep the pilot lit.

The pilot light will not stay lit after I let the button go to turn on the heater.


you most likely have to replance the thermocouple, its a safly feature that tells the gas valve that there is a flame present, if its not working its telling the gas valve that the pilot is not on and not to turn on the gas. If you look at your pilot light its a small metal rod that sticks into the flame, it should trace back and go directly into the gas valve.
