SOURCE: need parts: pilot assembly and thermocouple

THe thermocouple either has 2 wires or a coppr tube going to the gas valve. They can be bought at a good hardware store or a plumbing supply. The length of the wires or copper tube will be the determining factor as to which one you need. As these thermocouples, when heated generate a small electric charge tha keeps the gas valve open. Should cost no more than $10-15 USD

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.

Sort of but, only compared to a do it yourself type repair. I'll admit however that most people are too afraid to do these repairs and rightly so. I once repaired a water heater, needed a thermocouple and someone prior left the main gas feed tube loose at the gas valve. I need not tell you what that could have done, not good! This was my brother in-law, his wife, with kids living there and came very close to the big one.
Your not likely to find it much cheaper unless you have a fair amount of experience with working on this stuff and so what do you do? after all the service truck alone sucks gas, could be worse.

SOURCE: PILOT FOR EMPIRE WALL HEATER WONT STAY LIT. I HAVE

are you sure the problem is with the thermocouple? is the pilot sharp and blue? it is unconnon for the magnet in a gas valve to go bad but it does happen. place the thermocouple in the valve and with it in front of you heat it with a match or lighter for 30 sec. now try and light the pilot quickly. if it lights the the problem would be the pilot, if not then the valve. is this a milivolt system or hydrolic t stat.

I need a thermocouple for a dyna glo heater model #RMC-40GT


I believe on your particular model , that you have to replace the entire pilot assembly. As the thermocouple is an intricate part of it. In which case any LP or Natural Gas heater's pilot assembly will fit it. You will have to secify either Natural Gas or LP Gas when ordering.

I have provided 2 links to where you can purchase the pilot assembly you need.

Williams Wall Heater thermocouple replacment I was told by service person that the thermocouple needed to be replaced on my 1992 50,000 BTU wall heater. He quoted $300 for the job. Doesn't this estimate...


A standard thermocouple will cost you approx $10.00 to $20.00 at a hardware store. I'm including a link to a site with a video to help you identify and replace the thermocouple. The video demonstration is on a gas-fired water heater; however, the principle operation and replacement of the thermocouple is the same for a standard gas-fired furnace. Let us know if this was helpful to you and good luck in your endeavor! :-)

I HAVE MODEL GP30 WALL HEATER. I CAN LITE PILOT BUT WHEN I TURN CONTROL KNOB UP PILOT GOES OUT AND DOES NOT LITE HEATER


The thermocoupler is bad.Replace it,or if you can adjust it to where the thermocoupler is in the pilot flame.You know you have to hold the knob down for about 30 seconds or a minute,don`t you?If the flame will not touch the thermocoupler,it will not stay lit.You can cut a piece of copper tubing,or steel tubing to slidde over the old thermocoupler to make contact with the pilot flame,and it will work,if the thermocoupler is not in to bad of shape.

We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
