Replacement 120 Volt Thermocoupler for Chili Pepper & GS Controls - Jen-Ken
This thermocouple is for all 120v GS (infinite switch) kilns and all Chili Pepper kilns. It senses the temperature inside the kiln and sends the signal to the pyrometer. This part usually lasts many years. When it goes bad, the tip of the pyrometer will not rise. You can usually find a break in the thermocouple wire somewhere, normally at the tip.
To change this part you will need a small Phillips head screwdriver, a 1/4" nut driver, and about 10 minutes. On the Chili Pepper, no screwdriver is needed.
