I mean FloodChek brand name, google it. US made, quite expensive (for supply hoses), 20 yr warranty, sound really nice and good reviews. No 90 degree model though. Just going on a LG front loader...

PS there are 2 BLACK wires which I believe go to the thermoCOUPLE, again this I don't think relates to my problem, as I believe that is only for the pilot light. I just see a little discrepancy in...

Pete
Seems to be all correct. In the manual, with the on/off switch off it should be 325mv minimum, I get more like 560mv.
With it on it should be over 100mv, at first I had 206mv, slowly dropped...

Yes, I think when I said "she went down to light it", maybe you thought I meant to light the pilot. She just went down and flipped the switch to get some heat is what I meant, the pilot was ON, the...

The pilot light is NOT going out, the flame itself (the big one, the reason you have a fireplace), is what is going out.
When I say she went down to light it, I mean she flipped the switch on the...

I would describe the pilot light as looking normal, like it always has.
Also, I can see the point about the pilot light size if the problem simply was not lighting, but now it has gone out on us...

Heat N Glo Townsend fireplace won't light

We have had this for awhile, over 15 years without a problem.
Back story is probably unrelated, the city replaced our gas meter recently, and this was the farthest from the meter so he had me light...

I guess I have it figured out, I need a trim kit. I have Moen products, the Posi-Temp valve. It must be a more current style as the screws are at 2 o'clock and 7 o'clock. I assume any Moen trim kit...

Replacing just the tub faucet and handle, not the valve

The chrome on our 20+ year old faucet is etched, looks like water spots but at some point something must have etched them in. The faucet uses a set screw to hold it on to 1/2" copper pipe, there is...

We have this KitchenAid KUDI01DL, black smooth-front dishwasher, bought it new.

Bud, good to hear from you BTW! That is continuous to the main house. If you look over a few of the pictures, that is just outside the front door above the "stoop" or porch. It is a Wausau home, so...
