I didn’t know what these were so had to google it. Looks like one of the ones that mount on a 20lbs propane tank if I’m not mistaken....if so, I had or maybe still have a week thermocouple on mine. I bent the steel tab that holds the thermocouple so that it’s closer to the mesh/hot surface and haven’t had a problem since. Mine was acting up on “low”. Is the end that screws into the valve snug? Check that as well. Try bending the tab like I mentioned. Other than that take it completely off and take it to a few HVAC suppliers with hopes they’ve got one that threds into the valve. Post up your findings. Good luck.

Maybe try an RV shop for furnace repair shop. There are some pretty common use parts out there.

If all else fails here is a link to Paulin itself.....beware anything you buy will prolly be in American funds from them.....you might want to email/contact them to see if they have a Canadian distributor.

Just remember when putting in the new one, don't go berserk with the wrench and tighten like a gorilla. The small end of the thermocouple is very fragile and if you over tighten it, it's toast.

I will Check Home Depot, Thanks for that one never thought they would sell Thermo Couplers.
Fisherman thanks for the advice. I know the can get a little finicky, I am a RV Specialist and I run into it with H/W Tanks. None of my Suppliers can come up with One as Small as I need.
Thanks Everyone for your input.

He stated in the original post that it is a 3500 model. I'm not familiar with the brand however if a standard thermocouple doesn't fit, they may use one similar to a fireplace. There is a wholesaler in Mississauga called Target that carries some specific sizes...you could try calling them or bring the thermocouple there and try and match it up

Thanks Everyone for all your suggestions to make the Heater work, But my problem was that the lead was Broken just behind the head of the main part of the thermo coupler. The good news is after a lot of digging I found a Company called LionsCove in Oakville that carries all parts for Mr Heater and other Products and ship across Canada. So hopefully the one I ordered will fit.
Thanks Again Everyone

Yes they supply warranty parts for Mr heater... a friend of mine had 1 in his garage that broke... you could get it to light if it was in the right position... he was thinking some electronics solder but we never did try it... instead installed a NG fireplace with a fan kit

Hi Simcoeslayer, I just Built a 720sqft Mancave and I put in a 24k Senville Mini split Heat Pump System and it cost me around .95cents a day to heat it.
