I have an Atwood 6 Gallon (model-G6A-7) water heater in my travel trailer. My pilot wont stay lit, but looks strong, I've changed the thermocouple but still have the same problem. It goes out once the...

Make sure flame is good under thermocouple probe so that it gets proper sensing of flame, and if that's o.k., before you change gas control, remove thermocouple fitting where it attaches to gas control and spray wd-40 in the hole and twirl up some steel wool and push it in the hole and twirl it to try and clean the surface inside there as well. Then spray it out with WD-40 once more to flush out shavings etc, and if you have compressed air, blow it out as well. Now re-attach fitting and snug it, then re-try pilot again. If it works, great if not replace gas control. Let me know the results. You do realize that it should be a certified technician who changes that gas control if necessary, correct?

How do I change the termocouple on an older Dayton furnace

Locate the gas valve,there will be three lines coming off the bottom and going into the burner compartment. The center one is the largest and is the main gas feed to burner. The one on right is usually silver and about 1/4 inch in diameter. It is the pilot feed line. The third is usually coppercolored ,this is the line for the thermocouple. You can trace thermocouple line down into burner comparment. The tip of the thermoucople usually slips into a friction fit mounted right in front of pilot burner.Slip old thermocouple out of holder and unscrew fitting from the bottom of gas valve. Install new thermocouple into pilot burner assembly,make sure thermocouple is fully seated and in direct line of pilot flame. screw fitting into bottom of gas valve. Set gas valve control to pilot,depress pilot button and light pilot. Hold pilot button down for about 2 mins.Tip of thermocouple should be cherry red. If it'snot try to reposition so thermocouple is more covered by pilot flame. Relese pilot button and if pilot stays on rotate gas valve control to on.Hope this helps you. Yhanks

I have a desa fireplace model CGCFTP 26K btu, THE PILOT WILL NOT STAY LIT, I believe that it is the thermocouple, would you confirm or deny

Many times this problem is because the thermocouple has developed a bad seating connection between the thermocouple fixing nut and the Thermo-Electric valve located inside of your actual control valve assembly.

Meaning the connection between the end of the thermocouple wire just above the thermocouple fixing nut and the seat which is inside the Thermo-Electric valve have a bad connection that does now allows current to pass through the connection and into the Thermo-Electric valve.

When you have a good connection here it allows the control valve to stay open and allows gas to pass through the control valve into both the pilot and the main burner, but if this connection is bad then each time you release the button the pilot light will goes out.

Now to try and resolve this service problem with having to purchase new and sometimes expensive parts.

Remove the thermocouple wire from the gas control valve Thermo-Electric unit by turning fitting counter clockwise with a 5/16 wrench

Once the thermocouple fitting has been loosened and the thermocouple has been removed inspect the thermocouple Power Unit Connector Contact (PUCC).

Although the PUCC may appear clean may times the PUCC has developed a thin layer of corrosion that prevents the thermocouple from sending the needed current to the Thermo-Electric unit resulting in a pilot flame that may only remain burning strong as long as the pilot button is being pushed by the operator.

After removing the thermocouple PUCC from the valve you will need to clean both the power unit connector contact and the Thermo-Electric valve seat contact.

The connecting will require that a small amount of new "Clean Metal" be exposed providing a new fresh metal seat for the PUCC and the Thermo-Electric valve.

With a safety blade or a metal pick expose some new metal on both the PUCC and then up inside the Thermal-Electric valve seat scraping just a small amount of old surface from each item.
Now reassemble the thermocouple wire back into your gas control valve and tighten the nut firmly to achieve a good solid seating connection.

This new fresh metal seat should allow the millivolt current generated from the thermocouple to energize the Thermo-Electric valve and allow the gas control valve to remain in the open position.

If this does not work you may need to order a ned Pilot/ODS assembly.

The pilot light doesnt stay on to light the fryer... is there anything i can do? it is a lincat twin gas fryer....

Hi and welcome to FixYa. Most of the time this is as simple as changing the thermocouple. Any Appliance parts source will most likely have one that will fit your unit. (GAS VALVE OFF) It is a matter or unscrewing the thermocouple nut from the gas valve and then un-mounting the thermocouple probe end to change it out.

Take your OLD thermocouple with you to your LOCAL Appliance parts source so they can match the total length. Heating and Air-conditioning stores may have the thermocouple but your going to pay up to purchase a thermocouple from them. Same goes for restaurant equipment sources! $$$

Just make sure before you reinstall the new probe assy that your clean / wipe out the gas valve hole where the thermocouple nut mates to the gas valve very well. The probe works via micro volts and any dirt / corrosion / debris can affect the way the probe operates.

After changing out the thermocouple everything should work normally again. If not then the gas valve itself has a problem (highly unlikely) In the future if you need detailed info please pass your units model number in your response.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where would I find install instructions for a thermopile (lennox 11450097) to go into a gas earth stove model TG300DV

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You do not even have to turn off the gas to the stove to change the thermocouple.

It is a matter of unthreading the fitting from the gas valve and routing the new thermocuple in the same matter as the old one. There usually are 2 -3 mounting screws for the thermocouple head. Remove the screws and install the new thermocuple head in the same place as the old one.

Before you screw the new thermocouple into the gas valve make sure the mating area inside the gas valve is clean then thread the thermocouple fitting into the gas valve.

Sometimes the igniter is also mounted on the same bracket as the thermocouple just be careful not to damage it if yours is installed in the same manner.

It should not take more than 20 minutes......

That is it.... simple as that.

Thanks for using FixYa
