The thermistor is low cost relative to the pan. If you can idenify it by the component number you can replace it or maybe find an equivalent. How did you get the controller apart?

Have to keep lighting water heater

Clean air intake. Change thermocouple.
American Standard appears to be Bradford White or Rheem product from the one image that appears on the AS site.
Air intake located on side of unit funnels air to arrestor screen located under the combustion burner.
Remove burner and blow out screen with compressed air.
If this is Rheem product, then also inspect for broken glass vial that indicates high-temperature FV event, which might also require other parts to be replaced.

I have a williams model 4007732 heater. It just stoped working. I replaced the thermo coupler hoping it was the proble. But no, the heater still will not maintain the pilot light. So should I just...

if you have replaced thermocouple make sure your connection to valve is tight enough as i have found new heaters where a slight tighten on connection is all they need if not its the pilot spring inside valve some valve this can be fixed others replace valve altogether an old trick we used to do on solanoids that work similar was to give a tap on the area where slide or spring located it worked sometimes and sometimes only over night so probably easier to change valve in heater, one more thing before you change valve take pilot assembly out and check where pilot flame comes from found spider webs inside before stopping the pilot and in some cases pilot lights but like a lighter straight up missing thermocouple all together and is yellow because oxygen is reduced because of web sounds unbelivable but i ordered a full pilot assembly for a flame fire once changed to new took old one apart and found spider web then talking to the service guy who trained me said it was a common fault for him so it does happen

Hi ,,, replacement cords for counter top appliances can be found at most appliance or building supply stores. Try Home Depot, Ace, Lowes. Take the unit with you to make sure you are getting the correct cord.

Rival electric skillet # S16g-CN

I have just taken apart the probe / thermostat of this model for a friend. I am an amateur, but it is such an amazingly SIMPLE piece of equipment (in the non-digital, i.e. mechanical thermostat model I'm looking at, that it is clear that the light will be "on" if the thermostat is sending electricity to the heating element, WHETHER OR NOT the element is broken or even connected to thermostat: In other words, if the light is not going on with thermostat knob in any position but OFF, the problem is with the thermostat: The pilot light goes on even if thermostat is NOT PLUGGED INTO the pan; when functioning properly, which one can observe on working pan even w/o taking it appart. But if you have digital model, this will be of less sure use to you, tho the way two yellow wires go to pilot light INDEPENDENT of power returning from pan itself, it suggests the same may be true with all their models.
