this does not answer my question I know the thermocouple was broken because my pilot light stayed on but now although the pilot light ignites the fire when I push the switch down and turn it, the fire will not stay on I have tried longer times but as soon as I let the control switch up the fire turn off, incidentally the thread to the gas valve is different than that on a universal thermocouple that I purchased and is smaller than the adapter with the universal thermocouple that I bought
it came with two fixing nuts and a adapter with an internal and internal thread the problem is the thread on my baxi thermocouple is smaller and a different thread than the one on the universal one I am now going to buy one from baxi but my question is still why should my fire not stay alight and yes I do have a multimeter to check the voltage
yes I have just tried it and got a zero reading
yes but why will my fie not stay on
on the fire
so a new thermocouple should solve the problem?
