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.

how to check the On/Off gas fireplace switch circuit in a millivolt fireplace system, First you will need to make sure there are good thermopile readings before you continue. First, make sure the pilot light is turned on, If the fireplace is not turning on by the switch, a common mistake is that the gas valve has been left in the “pilot” position. The gas valve must be in the on position for the main burner to light up, There are different types of switches for millivolt gas fireplaces, a fireplace may have one switch or a combination of switches. Some switches are like a unit switch or toggle switch, a remote control, a wall thermostat, or a wall switch, Keep in mind that the switch circuit will sometimes have other safety switches in the circuit such as a temperature limit switch, or a door switch. A fast way of checking to see if the main burner is not coming on because of the switch circuit is to put a jumper wire on the valve, so This takes the switch circuit out completely. If the fireplace works with a jumper attached but does not when the jumper is removed, it means there is a problem with the switch circuit, Another way to check if the switches are faulty, is to bypass them.
