? re Duo Therm Furnace - 1968 GT

Question.

I light the pilot light, everything is OK. As instructed I turn the same knob to the "on" position. The pilot stays lit - BUT the burner lights up- even when the other knob, the thermostat knob is in the "off" position.

Does anyone know if this is correct? Seems wrong to me. When I turn the thermostat knob higher, the flame stays the same, now this is probably right, I think the actual thernostat cuts the burner off when it gets hot enough- the higher the setting the longer the burner would stay on.... Am I right here?

Any ideas, experience, thoughts, help????? Replacement parts???

Thank you

Bryan

Dosn't sound right

Sounds like a bad thermostat or shorted wire.

I would assume you can replace a thermostat? Are they fairly universal? I had the thing apart and it looks like it screws into the gas housing.

Thanks for your response.

Thermostat

Hmmm I was talking about the wall thermostat connects to the furnance with wires. I replaced mine with one from Home Depot compatable with RV furnance.
I have a Suburban and haven't worked on the Duro Therm.
There are several threads on furnace repair. You might do a search and get some good info.

Yeah, mine is as old as the hills! There is no wall thermostat, just one connected underneath the heater. No blower or anything like that.

Thanks
