Are thermocouples for gas fireplace inserts universal?
Posted by Elite Deals - Chris M. on 24 October 2013 02:48 PM

Our Answer:

Thermocouples are different from unit to unit. While some thermocouples in home improvement stores are marketed as "universal", they will not work for all appliances. Millivoltage for a thermocouple can range from 50 to 250, depending on the appliance. It is important to use a thermocouple that is properly sized to the unit, as damage to the magnets in the gas valve can result otherwise.
