    Is this the exact model number? If so how old is the unit? And lastly, how do you know it's the thermopile that's giving you an issue?

Where can we find thermocouple for adru richelieu fireplace?


I apologize I do not recognize the brand but since a month has passed without an answer I can tell you we have often had to find a replacement without being able to go through a manufacturer. For a fireplace we would need you to upload pictures of the control valve because it is very common for a fireplace valve to have a thermopile and not a thermocouple. If the valve has a battery pack or a electrical plug then the chances are that you have a thermocouple but if there is not an external power source the flame is probably heating a thermopile in order to generate the power needed for the controls.
If that is the case you would need to physically bring it to a shop to be tested for the proper amount of power needed because thermopiles can have a tremendous range.

Ambient remote control 5884 won't turn fireplace on and off


  • Make sure your valve is in the "on" position and not "pilot".
  • Install fresh batteries in both remote and receiver (remotes are finicky about good batteries.
  • Ensure the switch on your receiver is in the "remote" position.
  • Follow manual to re-sync handheld to receiver if necessary.
  • A burner not lighting could also be the fault of the appliance (bad thermopile). Check this too, and replace if needed.
  • Replace remote if necessary: Universal Fireplace Remotes

Napolean fireplace burner wont light


If your pilot is running fine, but your burner will not light:
  • You may have a bad thermopile.
  • There may be blockage in the burner orifice.
You can test the voltage of the thermopile per your owner's manual (replace if necessary).
You can clean out the burner orifice with some compressed air.

I have a desa fireplace and it is not working. it is model T36N and would like to know where i can purchase parts to fix it. I live in las vegas nevada zip 89141 thank you


Most parts in gas fireplaces are universal, the valve/thermopile and thermocouple are generic parts and should be found at your local gas fitting supply stores.

If you describe what you tried to fix the fireplace thus far I could give you better advice to which part you need to replace in order to get it running.

I installed a Napoleon Gas fireplace model BGD33NG . I get pilot lite but no flame . Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong ?


Make sure the pilot is turned to the ON position, otherwise you might have a broken thermopile which will need to be replaced as it controls the burner.

Yes, hopefully changing the thermocouple (skinny sensor) or thermopile(fat sensor) would do the trick.
Start with these fairly inexpensive repairs first.
Unfortunately if the honeywell valve is bad a new one can be expensive.
Also it is hard to order parts from Majestic, they just went bankrupt, not to long ago and Martin is taking them over. You might look for your valves model# and check online for other suppliers of that model# or ask for a compatible Direct Vent gas valve that's not as problematic. (eBay and HVAC dealers, etc.)
FYI:
You said it's been about 5 years, you might decide it's less of a hassle to have new gas fireplace installed. Martin and Empire are probably two of the best, with 5 year parts and labor warrantys.
Hope you find some success in your endeavor.
