Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
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.
