Old Glenwood Range with delaware ohio inside stove but no model or serial #s which have worn off. Side heater thermocouple is gone and element with it. So we need another. Pilot will light, but will not stay lit when turning up thermostat. Ellen Mass ***@******.***

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

Non-licensed handyman has the element out, but we will get a licensed plumber to put in a new either thermocouple or thermostat, whatever is needed. If something needs cleaning, handyman will do that.

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

Sounds like it needs a new thermocouple and a good cleaning. Universal thermocouples will work. They vary by Length and come with the necessary adaptors.
