Furnace Thermocouple Repair

furnace thermocouple repair
  • A thermoelectric device for measuring temperature, consisting of two wires of different metals connected at two points, a voltage being developed between the two junctions in proportion to the temperature difference
  • A thermocouple is a junction between two different metals that produces a voltage related to a temperature difference. Thermocouples are a widely used type of temperature sensor for measurement and control and can also be used to convert heat into electric power.
  • (Thermocouples) small devices placed near the nostrils or mouth to measure air flow by sensing temperature changes; expired air is warmer than inspired air.
  • a kind of thermometer consisting of two wires of different metals that are joined at both ends; one junction is at the temperature to be measured and the other is held at a fixed lower temperature; the current generated in the circuit is proportional to the temperature difference
  • An enclosed structure in which material can be heated to very high temperatures, e.g., for smelting metals
  • An appliance fired by gas, oil, or wood in which air or water is heated to be circulated throughout a building in a heating system
  • an enclosed chamber in which heat is produced to heat buildings, destroy refuse, smelt or refine ores, etc.
  • Used to describe a very hot place
  • A furnace is a device used for heating. The name derives from Latin fornax, oven. The earliest furnace was excavated at Balakot, a site of the Indus Valley Civilization, dating back to its mature phase (c. 2500-1900 BC). The furnace was most likely used for the manufacturing of ceramic objects.
  • Furnace is the first album released by the industrial music group Download. It was one of the first albums released with a lenticular cover. Their follow-up EP Microscopic also made use of this new type of packaging.
  • restore by replacing a part or putting together what is torn or broken; "She repaired her TV set"; "Repair my shoes please"
  • Make good (such damage) by fixing or repairing it
  • the act of putting something in working order again
  • Fix or mend (a thing suffering from damage or a fault)
  • Put right (a damaged relationship or unwelcome situation)
  • a formal way of referring to the condition of something; "the building was in good repair"

Once again, we paid over $100 to have a piece of copper wire threaded through a hole in the furnace and attached to the gas valve. I watched, but lots of coils had to be removed, so it's not something I can do myself next year. The guy asked me when I last oiled the motor for the furnace. I said that I didn't know it had to be oiled; we've been here since 1993, and we've never known to oil the furnace. He said, quite rudely, "Well, you put oil in your car, don'tcha?" I replied, "Yeah, I put tires on it, too, and drive it up to the store for groceries. Can't do that in a furnace." He said, "It's got a motor. It needs oil, like a car." But it's not a car; it's a furnace. I asked him whether we ought to replace it, and he told me to wait until it leaks water. But, he said, it's not energy efficient; heat's going right out the chimbley. (Sorry, he didn't say chimbley.) But a new, energy efficient model is about $6,000+. A few sentences later, he told me that most people would have to live to 140 to see any energy savings on the newer furnaces, once they pay for the furnace. It's not worth it. Of course it's not. I asked him if there were other thermocouples that lasted longer than the one I had installed last year, and he told me he'd be putting in a bigger one, a commercial one. But there's no saying how long it will last. "People ask me all the time how long something's gonna last. I can't tell 'em that. I could leave, and it could break the moment I'm out the door. I don't know why they all ask me that." "Well," I said, "some brands are inferior. It would be worth it to most of your customers to buy the $15 thermocouple, rather than the $7 one, if it means that you don't have to come back next year for another $150." Hell, that dude ought to pay ME for having come in my house. Asshat. I wrote in the memo portion of the check, "car repair." Asshat. So now there's heat, in more ways than one. I learned, to my great pleasure that my laptop has been repaired and is scheduled for delivery (really, it was like having an orgasm, and since my clothes haven't been off since Friday—well, never mind). So now I have no choice but to write. I'm still waiting for my backup drive, which has been sitting in Capitol Heights, Maryland at some postal facility since last Friday. Grrrrrr. But at least it's not Brrrrr.
The 1/2" diameter, 8" long pipe houses the removable thermocouple. It is internally insulated with glass fiber, two cement plugs seal the ends. The TC is inserted into the wall through the same hole used for the rotisserie shaft. The 8" pipe length gives an idea of the thickness of the brick wall plus the insulation and stucco. I'm checking the hot air exhaust.
