We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
ordered thermocouple from www.masterparts.net

Since the thermocouple body is made of metal, and often these have a copper or brass sleeve, that *should* provide good grounding for the thermocouple.

Obviously some engineer at the heater company did not agree with this, so he added an extra ground wire.

Most gas valves are not all that sensitive to exactly how many microvolts the thermocouple feeds to it.

My guess would be that if there is a cheap metal bracket that holds the thermocouple, such as unplated steel or tin, the extra ground wire counteracts the effects of corrosion over time.

So if the heater were stored in a damp garage, the thermocouple connection would get corroded, and the heater would not stay lit. The fix is the extra ground wire.

There are two types of failures with thermocouples: the safe-failure is when the gas is shut-off, even when flame is present, and the unsafe failure would be when gas is not shut off, even when no flame is present.

If the thermocouple somehow was not adequately grounded, then the most likely failure would be a 'safe failure' , such that the burner would not stay lit.

You could rig up some sort of extra grounding wire, but unless the part is subject to extreme vibration or is in an extreme (wet/salty) environment, it's probably not needed.

Of course, to be safe, do a flame blow-out test after you install the new part. While it's highly unlikely that an unsafe failure could occur, better safe than sorry.

Billy here's a link to A & B Sales. They have what you're looking for. Whether your heater is Natural Gas or Propane makes no difference when it comes to thermocouples.However the length of the tubing does when it's a wall or stand type vent-free heater.

My natural gas glo warm gwn6 wall heater keeps shutting off


Julie, the problem you're having with your DESA, Gas Glo Warm heater may be the result of a clogged Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the pilot. I have included a link on how to clean the pilot and the ODS, as well as the burner, that you can download and print for future reference.

I need a thermocouple for a dyna glo heater model #RMC-40GT


I believe on your particular model , that you have to replace the entire pilot assembly. As the thermocouple is an intricate part of it. In which case any LP or Natural Gas heater's pilot assembly will fit it. You will have to secify either Natural Gas or LP Gas when ordering.

I have provided 2 links to where you can purchase the pilot assembly you need.

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.

Glo-Warm Model #WMN20 20,000btu. Can hold down and ignite the pilot but as soon as i let go the pilot goes out and with out igniting the unit.


WITH THE HEATER OFF, clean the pilot flame unit with a can of compressed air. Blow directly into flame hole then try it again. if it continues to "not" stay lit then you need a new thermocouple.
