    We could not find any parts online for the specific model of your Gas refrigerator. However thermocouples are mainly similar and the main difference is the length. So we have here below a link with a list of the thermocouples and you can compare with one you have mainly the length and you can match it with one of the list in the link.

    You can contact them also directly by phone or email or even online chat and they can be more than happy to help you find the one you need.

The liquafeed did not dispense much during about 10 minutes of spraying, (Only about 1/4"of Liquafeed was dispensed.

I'm sorry to hear about the problems you are having with your LiquaFeed Sprayer. Your water pressure needs to be at least 45 PSI. If your garden hose is longer than 50 ft, this can lessen the water pressure. If there is any foreign matter or crystalization on the bottle or the sprayer where the bottle inserts, this will need to be soaked in warm water, as it may be clogging the sprayer. With the bottle of LiquaFeed apart from the sprayer, squeeze the bottle to see if any product comes out. If none of these troubleshooting steps help, please call us at 877-465-5160, and we will be happy to assist you further.

I changed the thermocoupler but problem remains the same: pilot goes out after about 10-15 minutes. I have Williams model 250912. Please help! How do I test if new thermocoupler is also bad, beside...

Remove the thermocouple and take a pencil eraser to the hole. Clean the corrosion out the hole. Reconnect the thermocouple tight. The tip of the flame must hit the tip of the new thermocouple.
If the flame is hitting the middle of the thermocouple that is called wash through (no good) The bimetal tip of the thermocouple is made of nickel and copper layered. When heated it produces millivolts. This holds the electromagnet in and that is your safety feature. Thank you Ralph Nader.

You may have changed the thermocouple, but did you clean the pilot assembly? Dust & dirt can get pulled in and restrict the gas/air mixture. The "blue flame" needs to impinge on the thermocouple in order for it to stay lit. Or, couId there be a possible "crack" in the heat exchanger ?

I have been told that I need to buy a new gas fire because the thermocouple is not working and needs replacing.Unfortunately the fire is approx 10-12 years old and no longer made hence the heating engineer...

I think before I went to the expence of buying a new fire place I would remove old thermocouple and take it to a heating equipment supply house and see if they can find a replacement. Most equipment manufactures don't make their own controls, such as thermocouples,gas valves ,sensors and other equipment. Many chain stores such as true value have good knowedgable people and if they don't have what you need they may know someone that does. I hope this helps you. thanks

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.

Pilot assembly parts or thermocouples

Hardware store thermocouples don't work on patio heaters. The fittings are not the same thread and they are not set up for the anti tilt safety switch. You'll need to purchase the parts from Blue Rhino.
