Help Finding a Thermo Coupler for a Magic Chef

Hello All, I am sure this is covered somewhere on this thread but I am having trouble finding the info I need.
I have a 79 31' Excella. I can not get the stove or the oven pilot light to light any more. I have a Magic Chef which I know they are no longer made anymore. The stove works fine so I believe I need a new Thermo Coupler, the problem is this thing is so old there is no readable model number on my stove/oven. Can anyone tell me the part number, or a link to the Thermo Coupler I need in a Magic Chef? It is a 4 top.

Magic Chef went out of business a number of years ago. When the oven door glass shattered on mine, I replaced the entire range with a Suburban 3 burner. I left my old magic chef with Oasis RV in Tucson AZ. Call them (520) 889-6361 and ask Gene about having that part scavenged and sent to you.

Maybe have one. You'd have to post a pic of yours. Bought a box full at a garage sale for 5 bucks just to get one. If a match yours for the postage.

Take the old one out. Go to a well stocked hardware store. They are still used in residential water heaters.
You might try disconnecting it at the gas valve and cleaning the contact point on the end of the tube and inside the valve.
It is only a 20 millivolt signal. Doesn't take much corrosion to interupt it.
Be sure to push the tube all the way into the valve before tightenimg. DO NOT overtighten.
