of its applicability to thecustomers particular situation Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 1 ENG0019 RevBSAFETY AND Force 10 Galley Range models are specifically equipped to burn Propane Gaswhile other models are equipped to use Compressed Natural Gas CNG Propane andCNG are not fuels It is therefore important to ensure that the model youhave selected is the correct one for the type of fuel system you intend to use If natural gasis used in a propane stove the burner flames will be inadequate for cooking If propane isused in a stove fitted for CNG burner flames will be unacceptably and dangerously installations for both propane and CNG systems are outlined in thismanual Follow only the instructions that are applicable to your specific model of GalleyRange If at some future date you want to convert your propane or CNG range to theother fuel a conversion kit can be obtained from Force 10 The model and serial numberof your range are required to obtain the correct kitPropane and natural gas are excellent and convenient galley fuels if used in accordancewith the installation and safety procedures listed in this manual If these procedures areignored there is a danger of fire and explosion We have done our best to design andconstruct your Gourmet Galley Range to be the safest marine galley range available Youcan do your part to ensure safety by following these installation and testing proceduresAll valves both tank and solenoid must be closed when the boat is unattended Theymust also be closed immediately in any emergency Force 10 recommends that manualcylinder valves be closed while appliances are not in operationGas gas pressures can vary depending on country of origin This may necessitate achange to your propane tank regulator and a need to adapt your galley

solenoid valve and hose from a reputable marine dealer or your local LPG service center Do not use unreliable or wornout equipmentWe specifically recommend that only a high quality regulator be used with your Force 10 Galley Range It must be set at 12 water column A higher pressure could result in a dangerously high flame setting If you question the quality or pressure setting of the regulator please have it inspected by your local LPG service center2 Locate the cylinder and regulator in a housing vented to the open air preferably on the deck or cabin top isolated from the hull interior by a vapor tight is heavier than air It can therefore accumulate at the bottom of enclosed compartments despite the provision of overhead ventilation To allow it to safely drain overboard the housing in which the cylinder is installed must be vented at the bottom A pipe or hose of at least 1 25mm id running on a downward slope to an outlet on the hull exterior is ideal Position the vent above the water line and at least two feet from any hull opening to the boat interior or engine exhaustWe recommend the installation of a vapor monitor on your boat with all propane fueled devices3 Propane is a twophase liquidvapor fuel and only vapor withdrawal from the tank is safe Firmly mount the cylinder right side up to ensure that liquid withdrawal does not occur4 We recommend that a solenoid valve which can be controlled by a switch located in your cabin be installed next to the manual cylinder valve The cylinder valve outlet and the 9 or 12 VDC solenoid valve should be clean and dry when they are connected to each attempts to seal this connection with substances like pipe dope or Teflon tape can result in the introduction of foreign materials into the system that can plug the tiny appliance orifices5 Tighten the solenoid valve to the cylinder valve outlet properly Use a 78 22mm or adjustable wrench not a pair of pliers and apply approximately 50 ftlbs 68Nm of torque6 A 0300 psi 020 bar pressure gauge should be installed next to the solenoid valve on its downstream side Again the fittings should be clean and dry It is not necessary to use pipe dope or Teflon tape for these connections Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 3 ENG0019 RevB7 Install the regulator downstream from the pressure gauge with its vent port pointing downward which prevents spray or deck wash from entering the fuel system Recommended LPG System Installation In some cases the solenoid valve is installed on the low pressure side of the system ie after the LPG regulator See solenoid manufacturers instructions for proper installation1 Starting from the propane tank itself the fuel line attachments should occupy the following positions a the tank shutoff valve b the solenoid valve c the pressure gauge d the regulator and e the range itself2 Affix the caution label plate supplied with your Galley Range in the immediate vicinity of the gas cylinder in a place where it will be plainly visible3 If the range is a gimbaled model the gas supply line should be a flexible fireresistant hose ULCGA approved for use with propane systems with 38 10mm forged female flare nuts machined crimped on each endIf your range is a builtin style you should use either soft copper tubing or a ULCGA approved gas hose with 38 10mm forged female flare nuts machine crimped onto each endBecause every connection is a potential leak the fuel line should be one continuous length of hose or tubing Do not make a T off ant fuel line between an existing appliance and the gas cylinder to feed another appliance You may install a T connection only within the fuel tanks enclosure so any leakage is containedPAGE 4 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev B4 Be sure you do not kink the hose or piping connecting the regulator with the range by bending it too sharply during installation remember that the pressure North American on the downstream side of the regulator is less than 433 psi 28 mbar5 Protect the hose against vibration and damage by securing it tightly to bulkheads and hull side with noncorrosive ties or clamps which will not cut abrade or pinch itOn gimbaled models the last two feet 60 cm of the downstream end of the hose should be unattached to bulkheads or the hull side to allow the range to swing freely on its gimbals6 Fuel lines must be protected by closefitting grommets and sealants where they pass through decks or bulkheads and the passage must be made vaportight They should be installed so that they are readily accessible to Gas CNG Fuel System Follow these instructions for natural gas model Galley Range ONLY1 Buy your cylinder gauge regulator and fuel line from a reputable marine dealer or your local CNG service station Do not use unreliable or wornout equipment2 Choose the location for the CNG cylinder away from any potential fire hazards such as a gasolinefueled engine a hot manifold or exhaust riser Should the CNG cylinder be adjacent to a fire and the safety valve rupture disc reaches 212 F 100 C and 3775 psi the disc will rupture and the gas contained in the cylinder will add to the fire already in progress3 As CNG is always a vapor all CNG cylinders are designed without a relief valve4 The CNG cylinders should be securely mounted either vertically or horizontally out of the way in an accessible area for easy operation of the CNG cylinder valve observation of the CNG cylinder pressure gauge and the removal of the CNG cylinder5 As each CNG cylinder contains less thermal energy than two gallons of alcohol or kerosene fuel but without their potential hazard of liquid leaks or spillage into the bilge the CNG cylinder may be located in the area of the boat which would be suitable for the location of a pressurized alcohol or kerosene tank

regulator system nut Have lefthand threads The cap and nuts are so marked with a slot6 The CNG cylinder valve outlet fitting does not require pipe dope or Teflon tape and should be clean and dry when attached to the regulation system nut to keep foreign materials out of the system7 Use a crescent wrench to tighten the regulation system nut to the CNG cylinder and valve connection Tighten the nut as you would a welding tank or CO2 cylinder using approximately 50 ftlbs 68Nm of torque8 If the CNG cylinders is to be located on deck or exposed to water spray point the regulation system so that water cannot run into the second stage gray regulator vent or into the body of the pressure gauge9 If the CNG cylinders is to be located inside a cabin enclosed in a lazarette hatch or in an area with little ventilation you must supply ample overhead ventilation in case of a leak or regulator malfunction10 Affix the caution label supplied with your Galley Range in the immediate vicinity of the cylinder in a place where it will be plainly visible11 The fuel line must be a type recommended for natural gas This line may be purchased through any of the natural gas dealers in the US If you have

the way to the plastic guard CNG hose seals well when it is pushed over the proper size barbed fitting hose clamps are unnecessary and should not be used Recommended CNG System Installation2 Run the hose from the CNG regulation system to the appliance with 6 minimum radius turns so the hose does not kink and cut off or reduce the fuel supply causing unsatisfactory operation of the range Note Fuel pressure is less than 217 psi 15 mbar3 Use only continuous lengths of hose from the regulation system to the appliance with no tees or splices Keep the number of fittings to an absolute minimum Every connection is a potential leak4 Keep hose away from heat or abrasion Use plastic ties or clamps to secure the hose to the boat structure or bulkheads Fuel lines must be protected by closefitting grommets and sealant where they pass through decks or bulkheads and the passage must be made vaportight5 They should be installed so that they are readily accessible to inspectionFuel System Testing LPG CNGTest your fuel system for leaks each time the cylinder supply valves are opened forappliance use Use the following procedure for the test Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 7 ENG0019 RevBFirst close all range burner valves by turning the controls to the OFF position Nextopen the manual cylinder and solenoid valves and make a note of the reading on thepressure gauge Now close the manual cylinder valve The pressure should remainconstant for at least 10 minutes If it does not gas is leaking out of the systemThe leaks should be located by applying a mixture of liquid of detergent and water to allconnections and other suspect points and checking for bubbles Do not attempt to locateleaks by using an open flame Repair and retest the system before putting it intooperation For more

Warranty Registration Form that is printed on the last page of this manual and send it back to Force 10 within 10 days of purchase Keep your model and serial numbers handy as they will be required when ordering parts or requesting assistance2 Do not locate cabinet storage units or any combustible surfaces at any point directly above the range3 Force 10 recommends a 30 75 cm clearance between the range top and any unprotected combustible cabin top or bulkhead This clearance may be reduced to a 20 50cm minimum if the overhead combustible surface is shielded with at least 14 6mm thick flameretardant millboard topped with not less than No 28 MSG sheet steel 0015 thick stainless steel 0024 thick aluminum or 0020 thick copper4 Gas consumes oxygen in the process of combustion For this reason it is essential to ventilate any enclosure in which you plan to use your Galley Range We recommend that at least nine square inches of fresh air ventilation be provided in the vicinity of the range5 Your Galley Range is equipped with a thermocouple device that will automatically turn off the gas supply within 15 seconds to any burner that might be accidentally extinguished Force 10 specifically warns that your range should not be used as a cabin or space heaterPAGE 8 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev BForce 10 manufactures a cabin heater specifically designed for the purpose of heating living space which is equipped with a an oxygen depletion sensor which will automatically turn off the gas supply if the oxygen level in the cabin should fall more than 5 below the normal level and b a stack to exhaust water vapor and carbon dioxide which would otherwise saturate the air and create a humid greenhouse atmosphere in the cabin interior extreme condensation around portholes hatches and on the exposed side is the usual sign For functional reasons these features essential to the safe and comfortable operation of a cabin space heater are not incorporated into the Galley Range6 The hinged burner grill and frame structure at the top of your range will become very hot during operation of the range top burners do not attempt to swing up or lift it without wearing oven mitts Keep children and pets away from the range when it is hot7 The whole range including the oven door becomes hot when the oven is being operated The top portion of the back of the range becomes very hot during oven operation Do not contact it with unprotected skin8 Always keep a Class ABC fire extinguisher mounted close by your Galley Range Grease fires should be extinguished by smothering them with baking soda or by using the ABC Class fire Models This section applies only to models designed for suspension from gimbal boltsBe sure to install the gimbal wall brackets so that your range will hang in the in relation to both countertops and adjacent cabinets or bulkheads For 3 or 4burner models there should be at least 1 25mm clearance between the back of therange and the nearest wall or bulkhead to allow free gimbal action For 2 burner models4 12 12cm clearance is required for free gimbal action Because of the slant on theback of the 3 4 burner ranges the clearance is less than what is needed for the 2 refer to separate diagram and installation instruction sheet for the and procedures for your specific model of rangeAfter installing the wall brackets and placing the range in position drill a 38 10mmhole for the sliding pin gimbal lock If the cabinet or fitting is not strong enough to holdthe range securely in the locked position install a metal plate supplied or a woodenblock with a 38 10mm hole Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 9 ENG0019 RevBThe bolt should be locked into the adjoining cabinet or bulkhead whenever the range isnot in use to prevent it from swinging in rough seas The bolt can be locked into either thein or out position by turning the knob clockwise For added security in roughweather bend up the retaining pin on the wall bracket over the gimbal knobBuiltIn Models This section applies only to builtin modelsPlease refer to separate diagram and installation sheet for the mounting dimensions andprocedures for your specific model of rangeOn builtin model stoves you must ventilate the back of the stove enclosure This can bedone by cutting holes at the side of the rear of the enclosure or across the back Somepeople do a very neat job of installing our builtin stove however please realize yourstove burners use a lot of oxygen Therefore make sure you have access holes to supplyplenty of fresh air either below the stove or through the adjacent cabinet side panelsMinimum required area is 10 square inches 25 sq cmLift the hinged top burner grill and you will see the mounting holeOperating Your Galley RangeLighting the Range Top Burners1 Before lighting please ensure burner caps are placed on burners2 Read and comply with all safety instructions in the vicinity of the gas and in this manual3 Turn all control knobs to the Off positionPAGE 10 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev B4 Open the manual cylinder and solenoid valves Turn the manual cylinder valve in the direction and switch the solenoid valve to the open position5 Push in control knob as far as it will go and turn it to High At the same time push the spark ignition button small button beside control knobs until burner is lit6 Sometimes the burner will sputter for a while before igniting Give your range 1015 seconds to purge the air out of the gas line7 Continue holding the burner control knob all the way in for about twenty 20 seconds after ignition This will heat the thermocouple and allow the gas valve to stay open The thermocouple is designed to cut off the gas supply to the burner if the flame should accidentally be extinguished8 This arrangement also ensures that the range is childproof to the extent that a simple twisting of the control knobs will not light any burners or allow gas to enter your boat9 If the ignition fails turn the burner OFF and apply a lit match or lighter to it before turning it back to the High position10 You should now be able to set the flame to any desired level between High and Low by turning the control knob further in the direction11 To turn off the burner turn the control knob clockwise to the Off position12 You must shut off both the solenoid and the manual gas cylinder valves whenever your vessel is unattended or if there is an emergency Force 10 recommends that you also shut the cylinder valves off whenever your Galley Range is not in useLighting the Oven and Broiler Burners Manually Controlled Oven1 It is essential to the proper operation of your oven that the stainless steel heat plate be placed on the bottom of each grill hanger in the oven to ensure even heat distribution2 Light the oven burner using the procedure described in instructions 1 to 5 for lighting the range top burners3 Close the oven door carefully to ensure that the oven burner will not be extinguished4 Before lighting the broiler burner not available in all models make sure that the oven rack has been adjusted to position your food at the desired height5 Remember that broiling is a rapid process Broil With the Door Open Check your food often and do not run the broiler for more than 20 minutes at a timeSetting the Oven Temperature Manually Controlled OvenThe manually controlled oven has a thermometer mounted in the face to monitor theexact temperature of the ovenAfter lighting the oven burner at the bottom of the oven close the oven door and keep theburner on High until the temperature begins to reach the desired setting Then turn theflame down and adjust the setting until the temperature holds at the desired level Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 11 ENG0019 RevBThereafter you need only check occasionally to ensure that it remains stableLighting the Oven and Broiler Burners It is essential to the proper operation of your oven that the stainless steel heat plate be placed on the bottom of each grill hanger in the oven to ensure even heat distribution2 Before lighting please ensure the oven burner cap is placed on the burner3 Read and comply with all safety instructions in the vicinity of the gas and in this manual4 Turn all control knobs to the Off position5 Open the manual cylinder and solenoid valves Turn the manual cylinder valve in the direction and switch the solenoid valve to the open position6 Turn the control knob to the desired temperature or to the broil position7 Push in blue safety shut button At the same time push the spark ignition button until burner is lit8 Close the oven door carefully to ensure that the oven burner will not be extinguished9 Before lighting the broiler burner not available in all models make sure that the oven rack has been adjusted to position your food at the desired height10 Remember that broiling is a rapid process Broil With the Door Open Check your food often and do not run the broiler for more than 20 minutes at a Controlled Oven OperationThe burner will operate on high until the set temperature is reached The burner will reduce to a low flame During operation the burner never goes offWhen the temperature has been reached and the flame is very low be sure to close theoven door slowly when checking your food To maximize the stability of this flame it wasnecessary for the burner to operate with a yellow flame when on high Do not be alarmedThe combustion is still very clean and safeCARE AND Galley Range is constructed of one of the hardest stainless However the surfaces can be damaged if the proper care is not given PleasePAGE 12 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev Bfollow these maintenance suggestions and you will have a good looking appliance foryears to come1 Do not use any abrasive chemical cleaners on the inside or outside of your range Any household liquid cleaner is recommended2 Use a clean cloth or sponge to apply cleaners3 Remove stains as quickly as possible before they become set4 Do not let food spills or burnt foods build up on any surface of your galley range5 You can use a household oven cleaner for the oven but remember to follow the product manufacturers directionsNote DO NOT use these cleaners on the oven face plate or oven door as the chemicals will remove the silkscreening6 Do not use steel wool or SOStype pads to clean any part of your range These products will embed fine steel particles in the surface of the stainless steel causing it to bleed rust in a marine environment Use bronze wool or some other nonmetallic abrasive if you must Be aware however that your range has a fine finish that can be scratched by some abrasive pads or cleansers7 If you purchased our optional bronze griddle to go with your Galley Range you should be able to keep it clean using regular dishwashing detergent We also recommend you use brass wool to keep it looking nice rubbing with the grain Do not use a copper polish or you will end up with green eggs and hamPROLONGED LAYUP The Force 10 Gourmet Galley Range has been designed to have a long life with everyday regular use However if you leave your boat unattended for a long period of in high heat and humid conditions the high temperature lubricant in the gascontrol valves may settle resulting in difficulty in turning the control valves and of the valveIn the event this should occur do not use force to freeup the valve stem It is best toremove the control panel from the range pull off control knobs and remove thermometer it will pull out Remove the two small Phillips head screws on the front of each controlvalve Once this is accomplished you can remove the cap that holds the valve stem in thevalve body Inside the body is a shaft that may also be dirty Using a pair of tweezers Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 13 ENG0019 RevBremove the shaft Remember its orientation inside the valve Carefully clean the valvestem and shaft using warm water or alcohol Replace the shaft back in the valveensuring it is in the proper position Lubricate the valve stem with a grease a small amount will do and replace the valve and its associated capSecure the screw and replace the control panelNote Do a soap test on the valve after assembly to ensure there are no something should go wrong with the operation of your Galley Range do not despairRead this section carefully and follow our suggested remediesIf these suggestions do not resolve the difficulty contact Force 10 directly or consultyour dealer quoting the model and serial number of your Galley Range The serialnumber on gimbaled models can be found on the bottom outside right panel and on thebuiltin models it is on the bottom inside left panelGas Smell1 Extinguish all open flames and smoking materials2 Close both manual and solenoid cylinder valves3 Make sure that all appliance valves are closed4 Ventilate all interior compartments thoroughly Use a fan to push the air from the bottom of all compartments5 Maintaining as much ventilation as possible open cylinder valves Making sure that the appliance valves are still closed apply a mixture of liquid detergent and water to all connections checking for bubbles indicating a leak Do not use a flame to check for leaks6 When repair of the leaks has been completed test the system with the aid of the pressure gauge using the procedure previously described for Fuel System Testing Page 7Inadequate Heat Flame Burning Low or Gas Out1 Your system may be low on fuel check your tank pressure gaugePAGE 14 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev B2 The gas cylinder valve may not be fully open make sure the handle is turned as far as it will go in the direction3 The burner orifices may be obstructed when cold take off the burner cap clean out the orifice and reinstall the part If the broiler orifice needs to be cleared added caution must be taken Inside the orifice is a red ruby Check to ensure the red ruby is still inside the orifice after cleaning If it falls out too much gas will be sent to the broiler and a new orifice will be needed Regardless of the orifice only use alcohol or a Qtip to clean the orifice Never use metal to clean the orifice4 Sometimes LPG gas will not flow as readily if the outside temperature is very low ie below System Fails to Spark or Begins to Spark Slowly Does not apply to 2Burner models without broiler which have piezo ignition1 Check the battery to ensure that it is an AA 15 volt that it is still giving power and that it is installed the right way The battery holder is located on the underside of the stove at the bottom front right hand corner Install a new battery if necessary In certain locations salt air can corrode the battery holder2 Check to see whether there is 332 2mm gap between the spark plug head which should be clean and the burner rim and that all the wires are securely connected to the spark ignition box located midway down the backside of the stove A quick way to check is to press the spark button and look to see if spark is sparking between terminals3 Remove control knobs and faceplate and check the wire connections at the back of the spark ignition switch Check the operation of the switch with a circuit tester4 Remove the stove and disassemble so that each spark ignition connecting wire can be checked for shorts Sometimes a minor nick in the wire will cause a short so the spark plug will not spark at that burner5 If none of the spark plugs will spark first replace the battery and check again If they still will not spark order a replacement spark ignition box from Force 10Sometimes the burner will sputter for a while before igniting Give your range 1015seconds to purge the air out of the gas lineBurner Control Valve Fails to Stay Open When Valve Control Knob is Released1 There could be a problem with the thermocouple The small upright attachment next to the burner on the range top is one end of the thermocouple Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 15 ENG0019 RevBThe outside of the thermocouple is a copper tube Inside the tube insulated from it is a nickel wire These metals are in contact with each other only at the point that is exposed to the burner flameRemember The Burner Control Knob must be held all the way in for twenty 20 seconds after ignition in order to heat the thermocouple and allow the gas valve to stay openWhen this point is heated by the burner flame a small amount of electricity 15 millivolt is generated This electric current flows to the other end of the thermocouple that is tightened into the gas valve Here it activates an electromagnet that keeps the valve openShould the burner accidentally be extinguished electricity will no longer be generated and the valve will be snapped back to the closed position by a stainless steel springThis is normally an isolated problem as all thermocouples and ranges are tested at the factory If necessary however remove the thermocouple following instructions 1 through 14 for replacing the thermocouple Lightly sand the end that has been removed from the valve with very fine sandpaper Replace in the valve and test If this does not work the thermocouple must have failed and will have to be replacedYou can also test the thermocouple by removing the end from the valve Heat up the other end with a torch or another burner on your stove By using a good quality voltmeter put one lead on the outside of the thermocouple and the other one on the far cold end If the thermocouple is okay it will show 15 to 25 millivolts on your meter2 The electromagnet solenoid inside the valve may have failed and will have to be THE Required Phillips Screwdriver 516 8mm Open Wrench or Crescent Wrench 38 10mm Open WrenchGeneral Information1 Thermocouples are made out of two dissimilar metals One end of each metal is fastened together When this connection is heated up a small amount of electricity isPAGE 16 Gourmet Galley Range ManualENG0019 Rev B created 15 millivolt and can be measured between the other two ends of these wires2 The outside of the thermocouple is a copper tube which acts as a conductor The inside is an insulated nickel wire which at the other end is separated from the copper wire by a very small insulating washer This end of the thermocouple screws into the gas valve which contains an electromagnet3 When the thermocouple is heated the electricity generated attracts the electromagnet in the valve and holds the valve open If the flame is accidentally extinguished the thermocouple cools causing the electromagnet to spring back and close the valve4 If the thermocouple is not holding the valve open check first that it is screwed into the valve tightly enough as a loose connection will not transfer the 15 millivolt If it has been tightened too much the insulating washer will be crushed shorting out the thermocouple and so it will not generate the 15 millivolt and must therefore be replaced Ideally the nut should be installed finger tight plus a 14 turn with a Instructions1 Get the stove on deck or on a bunk or table where you can work on it comfortably2 Remove both the back splash panel assembly complete with burner grill and the stove back panel secured with Phillips screws3 Remove the screws at the top front edge which secure the front face panel4 Remove screws on top side edges5 Remove screws from upper and lower clamps that hold the oven lines and spark wire in position against the rear outer wall of the oven You may have to snip the plastic wire tie holding the spark leads together6 The oven thermocouple tube is fastened down at the bottom of the oven by tie wrap plastic clip which needs to be removed7 Remove oven fuel line bottom part only with 12 12mm wrench8 Now slide the top burner tray out about halfway toward the back Be careful with the tubes and wires If you remove any spark leads mark them carefully for reinstallation Gourmet Galley Range Manual Page 17 ENG0019 RevB Broiler Models The broiler fuel line must be removed before the top tray can be slid backward The brass broiler orifice holder has a small Phillips screw in its right side Completely remove this screw and pull out the broiler fuel feed line from the broiler Now you can slide the top tray back be careful not to bend the broiler fuel line1 Remove the thermocouple end from the valve using a 516 8mm wrench or small crescent wrench2 Using a 38 10mm open wrench or crescent wrench loosen the hex nut connecting the thermocouple to the burner until the thermocouple is loosened from the burner Replace the thermocouple and proceed to Step 113 Reverse the above procedure being extremely careful when putting the end of the thermocouple into the valve If you turn too tight you will crush the insulating washer and need another new thermocouple Ideally the nut should be installed finger tight plus a 14 turn with a wrench Do not force or cross thread anything4 Make sure all gas lines spark ignition wires and thermocouples are not touching anything sharp5 When it is all back together mix some liquid soap and water and do your standard test for leaks with your fuel system pressurized and all control knobs turned to OFFTo Replace the Electromagnet Solenoid 1 on Page 21When you remove the thermocouple from the control valve remove the larger nut with a916 14mm wrench The electromagnet should fall out if not push the shaft wherethe knob should be and it will come out easily Install the new electromagnet with thespring end first Replace the nut and reinstall
