Pilot valve overlander

Hi all. Would anyone know where to buy a replacement valve for refrigerator pilot light in 59 over lander
the one that keeps the gas flowing when the pilot is lit (looks like wire attached to diaphragm type valve) thank you.

Photos would help. It sounds like you have a conventional gas valve, not the earlier "Klixon" style. If that is the case, you may be better off replacing just the thermocouple (the part that looks like a copper wire). Replacement thermocouples can be purchased at almost any hardware store or home center.

There is no pilot in your refer. It is just a burner. If you can light it and the flame goes out when you release the override it may be a bad thermocouple or bad connection where the thermocouple is screwed into the gas valve. It is only a 20millivolt signal. Make sure the contact area is clean.
