Question about Heating & Cooling
The problem may still be in the thermocouple. Not really the thermocouple but the setup.
You can have the wrong thermocouple type. Each type is meant for a different heat range and generates differant output levels.
Loose connections - We are talking about millivolts being generated by the thermocouple in some cases so every little bit can count. Check for cleanliness and secure/good connections.
Thermocouple is in the wrong position. Put it in the wrong spot and it doesn't see enough heat or too much heat.
Needs to be zeroed or calibrated.
Those are the basics to check. If you got replacement parts and they are right then I'd be looking at connections and placement. There is always a slight chance of defective parts but usually the problem comes back to those two things.
