SOURCE: Easy way to replace the thermocouple

I suppose it would be easier to replace the thermocouple than the thermostat. Once you have the thermocouple in your hand, the installation is self explanatory. If you describe the problem, maybe the correct solution will come.

I HAVE A PROPANE 75-125000 BTU REDDING HEATER. WHEN I RELEASE THE STARTER BUTTON THE FLAME GOES OUT. I TRIED HOLDING SEVERAL MINS AND IT STILL GOES OUT. HELP!!!


You will need to replace the pilot safety or commonly called Thermocouple. It is the probe located in the flame disc and works its way back to the gas valve. Remove it and take it to a good hardware store. You may have to purchase a longer one but you can keep it coiled to make it fit. Real easy to replace.

My oven is on warming mode from last six hours. Please adivse


First, check the back of the oven. See if the lil red button can be pressed in. Then check the IR Element, usually you can see the wires burned or damaged where it enters the oven by the snap rings. This was a design flaw from the manufacturer of the element of which turbochef has taken care of.

COMPONENTS
IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control
board.

Its typically an easy quick fix.

Pilot will not relight properly on 40 gallon natural gas hot water heater


Hi,
The thermocouple needs to be replaced. That is what keeps the pilot light lit. The thermocouple is the little metal probe that sticks up into the pilot flame. Very easy to replace.

Patio Heater won't stay lit?


The first possibility is a bad regulator, easy and cheap to replace. The second possibility is a bad thermocouple, and the third possibility is a blockage in the pilot assembly. The last two problems require you to take the head apart to replace the thermocouple or clear the blockage. If you are not comfortable taking the head apart, hire someone to do it.

Pilot wont stay lit installed new gas valve and new thermocouple


Is this a standing pilot furnace, or electronic igniton?

If standing pilot, does the heater use a fan to blow air through the heat exchanger?

If the answer to those questions is yes, then check that the pilot orifice is not partially plugged and that there is a strong pilot blowing against the thermocouple. If there is, replace the thermocouple. If not, check the orifice again, and check that the inlet screen to the gas valve is not filled with gas line trash.

If the the pilot flame is good and it continues to go out, the thermocouple magnet in the gas valve may be weak. Replace the gas valve as to get just the magnet and coil is not easy.

Reply back any questions you may have.
