Re: Diesel Fireplace

Thats exactly opposite how I thought it worked. I thought the thermocouple was suppose to shut off the fuel line if it got too hot. Either way, I cant imaging the thermocouple is even replaceable as I don't even know who made the unit. I assumed it was made by Bristol but it may have been manufactured for Bristol by someone else. There are no markings on the unit to be found.

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.

Looking at the manual that Denise posted, it looks like the thermocouple works like I thought it did. Check out the trouble shooting section toward the end the the manual. You may just need to reposition the tip of the probe and/or make sure the other end is properly attached to the valve assembly.

Re: Diesel Fireplace

Thanks guys, It looks like Taylor's uses the same set up and parts for the new ones and they have upgrade parts. Just an aside... DIY waste oil heaters are working the same way... and the old orchard heaters.. same sort of "low technology" IE heat the fuel as you burn it....

Denise, OMG, you're absolutely brilliant! I emailed the company from the information you had sent me and I just got an email back confirming that this is indeed their product and that is indeed the manual as the product number matches what he confirmed! Simply outstanding! I don't know how you did that, I have been trying to find something out with regards to this fireplace and got nowhere.

My absolute best to you and yours throughout the holiday season.

Again, thank you very, very, very much!!!!
