Title: CH-6-229-FT34 Gas safety/t-cpl on Wolf
Post by: outaluck on March 29, 2010, 10:05:43 PM
Anyone have a tech manual for this oven?  I'm looking at replacing the t-cpl but some suppliers say it is only avail as the whole safety valve assy.  However I am able to find an individual part number for it.  So has anyone changed it out before or am I stuck with getting the assy?
Thanks.

PS: T-cpl  part # 714268
Valve part # 705387-A

The  thermocouple is  part of the oven valve. Not a separate part, plus your part number does not check out either.

Dang, my ESP  needs a little polish (that makes 2 this year)...as well as my links to Wolf parts lookups :)

Thanks Brnt, for clarifying...hope he did not  buy the valve already. I notice you only clarified the part he asked about, not to provide the manual.

To be perfectly honest, if I had the manual, I could have figured that out  (wink:wink)

Well, as it turned out having the oven available for use became more important than cost.  So Since the valve was available in town and the t-cpl not, I got the whole valve and replaced it.  Works fine now.  Looking at the valves while they were outside the range, it appears that the t-cpl is a cap tube, and although it may be unscrewed from the valve body, it's probably not wise.  It does not look like the image you guys found.  Thanks for the manual, It will come in handy in the future.  This particular range is quite old: bad for getting parts, but good in that there is no electronics in it - all tubes, valves, and pilots :)

Thanks for the help all.

Looks like the snorkel valve is a robertshaw safety valve

http://www.erepco.com/ is your best bet, They rebuild them & give a better warranty than new. You can send them the one you have or if they have it in stock,send yours as a core replacement.

Safety Warning RECALL (http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml06/06222.html)
That flame switch in your first pic is an FM flame switch that has been recalled.

Fortunately the valves I have referred to have been rebuilt and should not have that problem. Interesting, thanks for the heads up! The thermostats and valves I have had rebuilt have exceeded my expectations, all have been accurate in temperature and safety. No bad units in over 300 installed. Warranties of 1 year to 2 years. Can't beat them. Best pricing as well!

Yeah those are beautiful. To read about a recall from Robertshaw is a rarity.
Very good products that have carried the industry literally from day 1.
Robertshaw invented the gas safety devices for boilers.

They rebuild the thermostats for 1930's 40's 50's and early 1960's ranges,my specialty. As well as commercial range controls and then some.
