Thermocouples are generic. They come with two adapters in the package to mount in different equipment. The local hardware should be able to help you out.

I need a thermocouple for a dyna glo natural gas wall heater


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.

Heater will not stay on, pilot light won't stay on,model VH3000E


Depending on the age of your heater, from what you described, it sounds as if the Thermocouple needs to be replaced. because it's an Infrared Heater rather than just a Blue Flame model. I would recommend, that unless you are very handy with tools and gas heating appliances, not to undertake the repair yourself. The Thermocouple itself is not an expensive part at all ($10.00 to $15.00). So having a professional repair it is the safest way to go. Because, during the repair he/she can also clean the interior of the unit and check or test for any of problems.

Keep in mind, DESA International who manufactured the Vanguard Heaters is no longer in business. But, some parts (like the Thermocouple) are still available.

It's always best to have your heater cleaned and service at least once a year. Normally, in the Fall, before you fire it up for the season.

The part is ordered by Model number, a serial number is no help, and yes there is a part called the flame sensor that allows the gas to stay on, I am sure if you contact a local supplier they can provide a suitable substitute gas valve or sensor if it is a stand alone part, on most the sensor is part of the gas valve. I think you will end up having a local shop try and match up the valve.

You probably don' need to start with the thermocouple. If the pilot is burning with a yellow tip and is curled away from the thermocouple. What you have is a dirty pilot. The heater thinks you have a low oxygen level because of lint or bug in the mixing chamber. With the pilot off, take a drinking straw and blow backwards thru the pilot opening. Then try again.

Where do i get a thermocouple for my Vanguard VP2800BTD


Those thermocouples are expensive. I have sold them in the past. They come from Italy. It has been my experience these thermocouples are not the problem.
Dust gets into the pilot safety and makes it shut down thinking the oxygen is low in the room. You must flush or blow out this dust. I have a demo movie HERE of this system and a
page showing where and how to clean the safety pilot without messing it up HERE

My pilot light keeps going out on my comfort glow infrared propane heater what could be making it go out?


The thermocoupler is faulty. It is that bulb that sits i the pilot flame. It controls the gas valve so you won't get any gas if the pilot goes out.. So, the thermocoupler needs to be replaced. Inexpensive and easy fix. Good Luck _Ned_

Burner keeps going out


It might be the ODS Pilot Assembly. It could be clogged with dust or lint.
It might be low gas pressure.
It could also be the pressure regulator.
