Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have no idea what a millivolt heater is. It is wall mounted with outside vent stands roughly 84" high by 15"wide, and is about from the late 70's. The stove is an Empire Propane 65,000 BTU unit, serial No A03514 Model WCC-65. Short of finding a new replacement valve, can it be rebuilt or a newer valve be substituted by a qualified tech? I have downloaded the entire factory description with their parts nos., but Empire no longer can replace the valve. They said Baso may be the mfg., but I think Essex. I called for help but got no reply.Jeff Goulart

Does it have electricity to it or stand alone?

It has electricity.

OK, is this a 24 volt valve? It should be marked on top. If you can upload a picture here it will help me find a suitable replacement.
