Re: Diesel Fireplace

Thermocouples are common the any hvac supply (even home centers) have them. If you do have one the it's connected to a millivolt type of switch or solenoid. If the flame isn't hitting it it won't produce any millivolts to operate.

It looks more like a thermostat valve to me. The knob on top (guessing again) is the temp setting for higher fuel feed. that would mean what appears to be a thermocouple is really a sensor bulb with capillary tube that controls the flow rate. I just can't tell from the photo.
Found this discussion with photos on CF
I do believe you have a "Drip feed oil burner" I found this on CF 2nd photo shows something like you have on yours.
