Question about Heaters
My sister has purchased a thermocouple for her whirlpool water heater as she's finding is notorious for becoming defective..ne who she has it and asked me to install it..is it that hard to get in there and connect one?
Nope, turn off all gas to the heater. Remove the enclosure containing the burner. Disconnect both the gas line and the thermocouple line from the gas valve and pull out the whole burner assembly. Take a pair of needle nose plyers and remove the thermocouple from the pilot assembly. Install the new one and reverse the removal procedures to put it all back together. Check to make sure there is no gas leaks and this is important, The nut to turn off the burner tube from the gas valve is reverse threads. Righty to turn off, Leftie to tighten.
