9. Gas Water Heater Thermocouple replacement question?

You should not have to remove the burner assembly to remove the thermocouple. But you have seen it's going to be darn hard to remove that thermocouple and install a replacement. Disconnect the thermocouple nut on the outside control box, and you should be able to pull the thermocouple body out of the bracket it is installed in, as it should be just a simple friction fit that is not very tight. Installing a new thermocouple just involves pushing the new one into that bracket. Years ago I had a gas water heater and over the years had to replace the thermocouple twice. That heater lasted 30 years before the valving quit working, probably worn out. I had to lie on my stomach and struggle to get the new thermocouple installed, as the heater was not on a platform that lifted it several inches off the floor. I also have big hands, and it was difficult manuevering my hand in that small space to install the new thermocouple body in the bracket.
