        Used to replace left handed thread thermocouple with a right handed thermocouple in whirlpool water heaters. Solves a big headache.

              Comments about Thermocouple Adapter for Flame Guard (Left Hand Thread):

              I discovered that left handed thread thermocouples are no longer made and was in need of a replacement adapter. I was under the impression that this adapter would allow me to convert to the standard right handed thread thermocouple. It does not. It is left handed thread on both ends. This is not an adapter at all. It is just a flame rollout sensor for a left handed thread thermocouple which is no longer made.

                  No, the adapter has left hand male and female threads. It is a fail-safe device (switch) designed for water heaters equipped with a damper that closes when the burner is off. I ended up getting a BFG Manifold/adapter kit which included Manifold door assembly, one Ferrule nut, one thermocouple adapter, two leads with push-on connectors with a label and installation manual. I believe I purchased this from SupplyHouse.com or similar supply house.

                Q:

                does the thermocouple adapter for left hand threads require connections to the electrical posts on the adapter. My heater is not equipped for this. I assume it is for some sort of fail safe purpose. Can you speak to this. I replaced the thermostat on my heater several years ago and it was not not one for my unit although it worked fine until recently when the pilot occasionally goes out. Can't get a left hand thermocouple. Please advise.

                  This unit is not an adapter to change a left hand thread to a right hand thread. It is a replacement part for a flame guard.

                  You can use this adapter to covert lh to rh thread thermocouples. The spade connectors are used for a flame roll out safety device. If your heater does not have this feature, build a jumper with two female spade connectors to complete the circuit at the adapter.

                  The part you have is an adapter for a gas control valve on a wall furnace. If you can't find a replacement thermocouple you can either replace your w/h control valve or take a right hand thermocouple and tighten it until it remakes the threads. If you try this just make sure you hold the thermocouple end square. You can use a pair of channel locks and push while turning it , the brass threads are soft enough that they will re-thread. It make take a couple tries, but it works and is the cheapest way to go, I have done it several times when parts weren't available.
