ALOHA, and yes at high elavations it is COLD in Hawaii too! Rural area, not only no techs around..the only 2 tech tel #s for 2000 sq. mi. county dont return calls...swamped right now. SO Its obvious...my thermocouple needs replacement. Been a property manager, DIY for years, and done many on water heaters...BUT on the this gas stove, getting it removed from the pilot assembly plate has been so far impossible. The end connecting to the regulator is easy...but the other end after 4 years of heat, natural condensation at 4000ft elevation in rain forest with light rust , ad proximity to thermopile/pilot assemby nuts is creating much difficulty. Any neat tricks or suggestions? Getting a generic replacement is easy enough, but still will require removal of original. Its LP version, with hig elevation adapter, if that matters. THANKS! from cold on the mountain.
