Need thermocouple
« on: March 11, 2010, 09:33:56 AM »
Does anyone have a source for the thermocouple for the tank top infrared heater.
Standard thermocouples do not fit.
Too large.

Never mind. Been searching a couple hours. Finally found a pn.
FYI part number is F273117. Made by Honeywell.

Jumpy I used to stock them, they are pricey and rarely fail. Most folk think it is a bad thermocouple but dust in the pilot makes the safety shut down.

These go on the tank top propane heater.
Depending upon supplier they are priced from 7-36 bucks.
7 makes sense. The heater sells for 42.
The nut is smaller than a standard "universal" t-couple.

This one is clean and burns fine as long as you can stand to hold the pilot button in.

If I had to pay 36 for it I would just buy another heater and save that one for parts.
