    Hello all, seen to be having a little trouble with gas fire (carver 3000) the pilot light ignites no problem but the main burner doesn't and will not come on.
    I have tried to do a little research it seems that Truma have bought out Carver and have discontinued Carver parts.
    Checked on ebay etc etc and it turns out that there are 3 different types of burner valves for the same
    gas fire.

    Just wondering if any one else has had a smiler problem

    could just be the thermo-couple, which sits in the pilot flame and when hot opens the main gas valve allowing the main burner to light.

    I believe the part number is 602699

    also, check the nut on the 'cold' end of the thermo-couple where it enters the gas valve....is it tight.

    if not, tighten finger tight plus 1/4 turn.

    Hi, Replaced the thermo coupling September last year as the fire kept going out.
