Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a lennox elite series gas fireplace L20 VDF-2. I'm needing to replace the thermocouple that fits the 52L15 Pilot Assembly. Can I just purchase the replacement thermocouple and if so what is the part #? I can find the replacement part 52L15 for the whole pilot assembly, but only need the thermocouple.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what type of fireplace is this?

Standing gas vented fireplace. L20 VDF-2 Model

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I just need to know if the thermocouple can be purchased separate from the pilot assembly and who would have the part. Thanks,
