Gas Fireplace Thermocouple Troubleshooting:A thermocouple uses the heat from the pilot light to create millivolts to hold open the magnet in a gas valve, Thermocouples come in different shapes and sizes, Not all fireplaces have Thermocouple, some just have the thermopile too, and some just have the thermocouple. Before you test a thermocouple, you want to make sure the pilot is a strong blue flame, and the thermocouple is clean from build-up, if the pilot is weak or the thermocouple has build-up, it can cause low readings. First, locate where the thermocouple is screwed into the gas valve, Then, unscrew the thermocouple from the gas valve, The readings are taken by placing the red probe from the voltmeter and placing it on the very end of the thermocouple. If the thermocouple is reading less than 7mV, you should replace the thermocouple, So, to recap, the readings to look for are 8 to 30mV, and if the readings are less than 7mV, you should replace the thermocouple.
