did you replace the thermopile?
yu said you got a new thermocouple...not the thermopile.
Thermopile creates millivolts which 500 are needed. Thermocouple creates a magnetism to hold a coil open.
I have to ask because some valves have both...a thermocouple to hold pilot and a thermopile to work valve.
What you replaced,,,did it have a flexible braided wire with two wire inside with u shaped terminal ends? Or a stiff copper tube that scrwed into the valve?
I am separating links...but which did you replace?
Here is what I am referring to. Part 071515
and the part I sent link for? The thermopile part 071515?
Is that new
if you yake the 2 terminals from the thermopile...and put one direct to TP and one direct to TH...NOT the TH/TP...does the unit start?
TH/TP is a dummy terminal just to connect wires...the TH and TP are the coil terminals...we want the 2 terminals from thermopile one on TH and one on TP...remove all others for test
Just respond when you can
