Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dono Perfect part and easy to install!
This saved me over $100 in parts and labor! I found the effect art for $12 and was able to replace it perfectly and had hot water in 30 minutes! My wife and daughter think I'm "Mr. Fixit" now!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DTD52 Water heater with no pilot light / thermo coupler fixes it
The water heater pilot light went out. I google the tutoring for replacing the thermo-couple,
and I was able to replace the thermo-coupler in my water heater, GE brand Model PG40T9XA. Since the thermo-coupler basically is a solid copper wire, a conductor with a thermo sensor at the end. It’s very simple to go to Home Depot and buying an UNIVERSAL THERMO coupler typical one of two sizes 24 inches or 36 inches. For example, My GE water heater has the thermo sensor / copper wire 15 inches long. However, I bought the universal thermo coupler 24 inches long at Home Depot and folding the extra copper wire / thermo sensor .
The point is we don’t have to find / to buy OEM manufacturing part for the exact length of the thermo coupler. An universal thermo couple works just fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trancha best fit for my carier gas furnace
it is very convenient to get this from a local store when i need rather than searching from the web and wait for a few days to have it arrived. one thing need to know is to adjust the tip 1/2" above the pilot light. otherwises, the pilot won't be able to maintain the light after you release the gas's button. recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DD21 Good Design. Quick Install
This universal was easier to install than the original design. This part has a separate mounting assembly from the sensor, which made it easier to install past a tight fitting corner.
I woke up on a cold morning to no heat. Pilot was out. Tried relighting pilot several times. It would ignite everytime, but once I let off the pilot button it would go out. A quick trip to my local Home Depot and 15-20 minute install later and we have heat again!
Save some $ and do this one yourself.

I have a Bradford White 40 gallon water heater and found the pilot light out this morning when getting ready for work. I tried to clean up the old thermocouple with sandpaper, but to no use. I picked this up and had it installed and working in no time. This is a bit longer than the OE so I just put one coil in it before I hooked it up to take in the slack.

Worked great on a GE (Rheem) water heater. In fifteen minutes I was out of hot water with my wife and into hot water in the shower. You gotta love it!

The thermocouple was/it great. Was easy to install and fixed the problem I've been having with my hot water heater.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a4andrew worked well for me
Though the package says the swap would take only 15 minutes, don't believe it, especially if you have to take apart the housing (refer to the manual). It took about an hour for me to pull out the parts after diagnosing the problem where my pilot light would soon go off after lighting and running for awhile then going out again (a 5+ year old Whirlpool water heater). Anyway this 24" was just the right side (with flexibility to making it "shorter" should you have to get it closer. Getting a repair person to do the job probably would have cost over a $100 to do, but googling and youtubing helped me save lots of money on this fix.
