Re: Thermal coupler

Could be the milivolt generator was adjusted too far in the flame causing the tip to burn out. all it has to do is detect the flame not be in the flame path!.

Will only throw flames if holdin button in

the thermal coupler could be bad. try and hold the gas button down for about 15 to 20 seconds and see if the flame will stay on after that amount of time when button is released. if it still goes out - then replace the coupling with a new one and all should be good after that.

Thermo coupler is held in place with a clamp bracket at the pilot end and a small brass line nut on the other end going into the gas valve.The pilot flame must surround the sensing bu or wrap itself around it Press the pilot button for a few seconds and fire up the pilot flame. Wait a few more minutes and turn the gas vale on for the main burners. If it fires, your set.Good Luck,Ned

Won't stay lit..

I contacted and talked with their support department (866-883-9312). They instantly stated "your thermal coupler is bad". They had 1 in stock for 19.99 + shipping. I ordered it and plan to have it installed and tested by next weekend. The model I have is Reddy Heater Propane 35k to 55k (RLP55V).

Wall furnace model # SFB50146B Thermal Coupler. Does it have 2 wires?

if the pilot light stays lit, but the burners don't kick on, it's a problem with the thermostat or thermostat wiring, or a problem with the valve inside the gas actuator

Black & Decker BDCH200C Ceramic Heater

There is a thermal fuse in this heater. A 133 deg. C fuse along with a bimetalic thermal cutout is attached to the top of the ceramic heater housing. This fuse is probably open, and is the most likely cause of your problem. This fuse is riveted in place, and is not easy to change.
Opening the heater case requires a special anti-tamper screwdriver. B&D don't want you inside this unit.
