Yes, they go bad, but not nearly as ofter as thremocouples.  The thermocouples are cheap. I would try another first. I have had new, bad ones.  Make sure that flame is licking the thermocouple well.

How to light the pilot


From looking at this parts list, I see that the gas valve is powered by a thermal generator. The generator holds open the gas valve AND operates the gas valve solenoid. Their are 2 thermostats one of which determines the desired cooking emt and another which is a limit that kills the operation if the oil exceeds 450 f. To light this puppy you move the gas valve selection knob to the PILOT position. Press in on the knob and light the pilot with a match. Keep holding down the knob till the flame stays on without the knob being pressed. Advance the knob to the ON position once you have the pilot lit. Most common problems for this rig: Bad thermal generator/thermopile. Weak thermal generator holds the safety pilot on till heat is called for then shuts down when the solenoid is energized. Bad solenoid operator on gas valve (non replaceable you must buy a new valve) Bad thermostat or limit. Pretty easy fix if you like getting greasy. LOL

I have a evcon 7200erc S-1 The pilot will not stay lit.ignitor cycles while i hold lever to pilot,pilot lites i hold for 60 seconds release lever and pilot goes out.I replaced thermal couple to correct...


Check the following: Pilot orifice or line partially clogged --- remove and clean.
use a fine wire or drill bit to do this.
Gas control valve going bad --- replace gas valve. Gas valves cannot be repaired.

Pilot light will not stay lit.


More than likely the thermal couple is defective. The thermal couple is a safety device that shuts the gas off if the pilot goes out. If it is defective the pilot light will not stay lit. The thermal couple is the device that the small copper line goes to. It is mounted beside the pilot flame and the flame much touch the TC for it to work. If the flame is not touching the TC bend it until it is in the flame. If it is touching the TC then replace it.

Pilot won't stay lit, replaced thermalcouple but


I would remove pilot light assembly and clean orifice and blow out gas line to pilot. Check to see that thermocouple is centered in pilot flame. It is possiblethat your gas valve is bad but it is also possible that you got a defective thermocouple. I would change the thermocouple again as they are much less expensive then the gas valves. The next time when you are sure you have the thernocouple mounted as close to the center of the pilot flame hold the pilot button down for several mins. If none of this works then you may have to change your gas valve.Thank you.

Pilot light is not staying lit. woke up to cold water.cleaned flame sensor. still no luck. any ideas?


sounds like a bad thermal coupling! if the coupling goes bad it will shut gas supply off as a safety precaution. it acts similar to a thermometer, if its bad then you will not get any gas through. it is screwed into gas valve and shuts the gas off. have a good day!! replace thermal coupling!

Burner does not stay on .replace the gas control thermostat


it may be the thermal coupling. because if its bad it will shut the gas off. if the coupling gets hot on the end, it will turn gas on. it has to be in pilot light flame, to turn gas on. change thermal coupling. good luck !!

Warm morning propane heater. new thermal couple. pilot won,t stay lit. turn gas on and pilot blows out


There are basically three things that can go wrong with the Warm Morning .
Sensor shut off. There is a sensor button on the back of the unit with a wire going from it to the thermocouple. This sensor turns the heater off if the flue is blocked, however it will also shut the heater off if the wire contacts are dirty, or if the sensor has gone bad.
You can test this by bypassing the sensor. Disconnect the two wires from the sensor and reconnect them directly together. If the pilot stays on, your problem is here. Try cleaning the wire contacts first.
Pilot orifice. If the pilot flame is small and doesnt look healthy, the pilot orifice may need cleaning. The hole is very small and can get dirty. Disconnect the silver tube and clean with electrical parts cleaner. Never try to clean the hole with an object like a pin, you may damage it. You may have to slide out the burner unit to get at the silver tube. (Always shut off gas before disconnecting lines and after you reassemble, spray joints with soapywater and look for small bubbles which may indicate a gas leak. Dont use parts cleaner around an open flame.)

Thermocouple can go bad but this is not as common as the first two problems.

Will not light


Is the gas on? If the pilot won't stay on, then it's the thermo couple. It either needs cleaning or is bad. Sometimes, the connection at the thermocouple and the gas valve can be damaged and the gas valve not receiving the "signal" that the pilot is lit therefore the pilot will not stay lit. Make sure the temperature on the gas valve is set high enough to come on. If after you have changed the thermocouple and it still doesn't heat then you have either a clogged gas line where the line enters the valve or the valve its self is bad and needs to be replaced.
