warm morning stove (by sid [MO]) Posted on: Dec 5, 2008 2:26 PM

I have one small unit with a "warm morning stove" as its primary heat source. This is a freestanding natural gas stove with a fan blower that is vented via a small chimney. I'm not sure what its real name is, but someone I had look at it once called it this.

Anyway, when my last tenant moved in I replaced the thermocouple because the pilot light wasn't staying lit. Seems like that worked fine for about a month. Now pilot doesn't want to stay lit again. New tenant had utility company come out to try to relight it last night and they said they thought it might be the gas valve (whatever that means).

Any thoughts or suggestions here? Also, is there something else to call this kind of heater? Is there a way to tell if my thermocouple has gone bad again?

The other end of the thermocouple attaches to the main valve (various types). When it is working it creates a small electrical current that keeps the main valve open. When the t-couple fails it closes the main valve and keeps the heater from blowing up.

When you light the pilot you manually press down on that springy thing and it bypasses the main to allow gas to pass to light the pilot.

Being old and with a new t-couple it is very likely the main operating valve has failed. Good luck replacing it easily. --71.166.xxx.xx

Warm Morning was a brand name for the type heater you are describing. I heard a few years ago the company is no longer in business. --75.183.xx.xx

You have a unit with a space heater as it's primary heating source. The gas valve assembly probably can be bought and swapped out. --69.253.xx.xxx

Remove the gas valve - oops you prolly have to be licensed to get these at a reasonable price, go to the place you purchase furnace fan motors and see if they have one like it, set the manifold pressure on the low side of a similar unit specs. because warm morning has been long gone 20 year that I know about. --99.147.xx.xx
