An excellent tool,

"The CHECKER" will let you know if your thermocouple or safety valve is not operating properly. Also used for thermostat thermocouples.



Thermocouple - 'A'

Thermocouple Checker - 'b'


Just unscrew threaded end (A) of thermocouple from the safety valve and into the checker (B). 


Hold in for 1 minute. If end pops out the thermocouple is bad.


Requires no electricity or batteries - no meters to read or technical knowledge necessary. 

Can also be used to test thermocouples outside of stove with just a lighter. Good for the life of your stove. 


“For the first time since I bought the house, my oven is working beautifully...

...refurbished for half the cost. My plumber re-installed the thermocouple and refurbished safety valve..."

P. Dautel - Texas


Last February I bought a house that was built in 1950. It's a lovely house with red oak hard wood floors, lots of windows and a wonderful Universal gas stove in excellent condition, except the oven didn't work. A local plumber diagnosed the safety valve problem. J.E.S. responded quickly by email and I arranged for my plumber to disconnect the thermocouple and safety valve so the parts could be mailed to JES. Now all is working again!


"I'm a Baker....

and I'm So Happy"

Thank you soooo much for fixing my oven. Since  I got it in May of this year I have never been able to use it. I'm a baker!!! I'm so Happy!  :) Thank you and your team.

Outstanding Service

Outstanding Service. I asked a million questions and got answers to all of them in a very prompt manner. I have an antique stove that has been in the family for over 60 years and they helped me keep it working by providing a hard to find replacement thermostat. Not only that, but detailed easy to follow instructions on how install it.

I live in an area where finding repair people to work on one of these impossible, but with their help I was able to tackle this job and keep a great piece working. I can't say enough good things about them.

My Oven is Working Beautifully.


J.E.S. did some diagnostics on the safety valve and told me it could be refurbished for half the cost of a new safety valve. My plumber reinstalled the thermocouple and refurbished safety valve. For the first time since I bought the house, my oven is working beautifully.  And just in time for the Holidays!

1952 O'Keefe & Merritt -  Working - Totally!


I'm happy to report that our 1952 O'Keefe and Merritt stove is finally working - totally!  I installed the parts you shipped, did a bubble test and all seems well. Just wanted to give you guys a big American-Flag salute for helping me get our stove up and running. My wife is so happy! Our stove is like a new toy and it's our Christmas gift, too! My wife can't believe she got her X-Mas present. Finally! 

Have a great holiday.

Thanks again for your help.

Stove Works Great!

I would like to thank you for your help in locating a replacement safety valve for my gas on gas stove. I installed it a couple of weeks ago and it works great. The pilot takes 30 sec. or less to light, and when you blow out the pilot after running, the unit will not run with the pilot out as it is suppose to.  THANKS AGAIN!
