Problem with Truma S3002 P gas fire

Recommended Posts

My fire has not been used since March this year, and when I went to light it it won't fire up. The pilot lights instantly when I press the piezo ignition, but when I release the control knob there is not even a hint of it firing up, the pilot simply goes out.

I've found  a long post elsewhere which suggests that thermo couples just don't fail so it's unlikely to be a failure, but the cold end may need cleaning.

My question is how difficult is it to disassemble the cold end to clean it? Do I have to get underneath the van to do it? Or do I need special tools?

Any advice gratefully accepted.

I know it's not exactly the same, but the thermocouple on the fire in my lounge recently failed - so they do fail!

I have so far failed to find any description of how to replace them, so for the time being I won't be attempting it. It looks to me like the entire fire has to be dismantled.
