Question about DeLonghi Heating & Cooling
The problem more than likely is not the gas valve, it's the Thermocouple or Thermopile that has failed. Replacement of the gas valve is not necessary. The Thermocouple and the Thermopile (also called Thermo-generator or Pilot Generator) are safety features designed to stop the gas flow if the pilot light flame goes out. When you continue to hold it down, you are overriding them. But, the flame goes out when you release it. Right?
Be glad it's not the Gas Control Valve. It cost more than you want to spend. Whereas, the Thermocouple or Thermopile are comparatively inexpensive. Any qualified gas technician can replace either for you.
Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.
