The thermoucple may be one of two types. Does it have a flexible silver binding around two wires or is it a copper lead?
OK, it should have two simple wire connections at the gas valve, At the pilot burner it should be held in place with a brass compression type fitting. May be like 3/8" bradss hex... do you see that?
Let me see if I can grab a picture
See if this helps
I believe that is fixed to the pilot, the small one should turn, but I suspect you are saying it is not loostening?
Somnetimes they swell or corrode enough to make it tight... Once the nut is out, is there any chance it will go through the other way? OR can you use pliers to gently turn without crushing the element head?
your throwing the old one out so it wont matter, we just dont want to mess up the burner.
Yes since you are disposing of the old one
