Customer Question

I have an old Waste King indoor grill. The pilot light will not stay on. I think I need a new thermocouple, but have no idea where to get one. This one seems to be welded to the pilot light.

Hello I'm Larry and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

does the pilot go out as you release the pilot button?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
it is the thermocouple then and its not welded and once you unscrew it from the unit you can slide it out from the pilot and you can get one at any local hardware store ,, Glad i could help you with your problem today so please press the accept button for me before you leave so i may be paid ,, Thanks

It does not unscrew
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
take the valve with you and they can show you how it comes apart
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Already did and they could not tell me how to get it apart. They also thought that it was welded to the mounting bracket.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
take it to a local heat/air parts supplier and they will be able to do it for you ,, the guy at the hardware store most likely never seen haha
