I'm looking for a manual w/ parts list or just a replacement

Customer Question

Hello. I'm looking for a manual w/ parts list or just a replacement part number for the thermocouple in a Rennai HET-25T-P unvented propane wall heater. Do you have sources?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: It went out yesterday afternoon. Fortunately i have a wood stove, so as long as i'm at home, that will do.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: The screw retaining the thermocouple is a security Torx type, so if i can find a bit to fit, then i can replace the t-couple.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: If there is a Rinnai dealer within a hundred miles of 81144, please let me know. Their website isn't working today, for any sort of search.

Most of these heaters use a standard thermocouple you can get at Lowes or Home Depot.Does it look like this one?
