A thermocoupler is nothing more than a sensor that detects heat and can be replaced with a few tools such as a screwdriver.


Go to sears.com. Click the tab at the top of the screen that says parts direct. Type in the model number and buy the part. While you are at it, buy the owners manual, so that you can see how to replace it. It's usually just 3 screws and it comes out.

Hope this helps!

Grill starts then turns off


Need more information because if you have an appliance with some kind of safety valve using an electric sensor or thermocouple there are a few ways to test the problem in order to determine where the actual failure is happening.
With normal residential barbecue grill models I hear this complaint usually with infrared models. If an infrared burner ignites and then blows itself out this indicates the ceramic tiles at the top of the housing are cracked. Over time this will grow worse and can pop or even throw-out flame which can make it scary since infrared burners are so effective because they pressurize the gas for maximum heat.

I was just wondering my rotisiree burner dosent work .. please help asap! thanks


If it is not igniting and hold the flame and getting red, it could be that the burner is dirty and clogged or the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit has failed.Please keep in mind, when lighting an infrared burner, you must hold the burner control knob in for several minutes. At least until all the ceramic plaques are glowing brightly. if the igniter won't light it, try match lighting it, while you hold the burner control knob in.

Most gill manufacturers recommend lighting and burning the infrared rotisserie burner on a regular basis, whether you use it or not,. Doing this helps to keep the burner clean.

I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Have a home depot ducane 5 burner. just replaced burner tubes. have never used the rotisserie burner on it before. it lights but won't stay lite after releasing knob...any suggestions? Thanks


Infrared burners requite that the gas control knob be held in for 2 minutes or so, to allow the thermocouple on the infrared burner to heat up completely. If it's windy were you are, the wind can blow the burner out, while trying to light it. That's why it has a thermocouple on it, to stop the gas if the burner goes out. All cooking on the rotisserie is doon with the lid/hood closed, at temperatures around 250 degrees F. Once the infrared burner turns bright red, release the control knob.

Hope this helped you to get it lit. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Rotisserie infra red value would come on,it comes on when I hold it in...


I'm assuming, that after you release the burner knob, the infrared burner goes out. You need to hold the knob in until the infrared burner gets glowing hot. If it doesn't remain lit after doing that, the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit, either needs cleaning due to a grease build up or replacing the thermocouple entirely. To clean it, alcohol and a cotton ball works well.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Fire goes out and gas continues


What you described is not unusual with the main burners of a gas grill. As, there is no thermocouple on each burner, that would shut the gas off to that burner. You must turn the burner off, yourself. To the best of my knowledge, there is only one American made grill that has a thermocouple on each burner and it isn't a Weber grill.

If it's the infrared rotisserie burner, you're talking about, then that's a problem. That burner does have a thermocouple that may need cleaning or replacing.

Hope this helps to solve the problem.

My rotisserie burner keeps shuting off


If yours is an infrared rotisserie burner, it's equipped with a thermocouple. Since infrared burners are hard to see if they are lit or not (depending how the sun shines on it), the thermocouple provides a safety net, in case the burner goes out (blown out by the wind) for whatever reason. I assume, yours is going out without the wind blowing it out ... the thermocouple may need cleaning due to a grease splatter build up. A cotton ball dipped in alcohol works well for this. In addition, check all the connections for the thermocouple (from the gas valve to the thermocouple) to make sure they are secure. If they are loose, tighten them with the appropriately sized open end wrench. But, do not over tighten them.

Troubleshooting what I listed above should solve the problem.
