B60 General Controls


Hello, I have a Furnace with a B60 General Controls gas valve. I have replaced the thermopile. However, I think I need to replace the Gas Valve. When I tap the gas valve itself, it comes on, but not when the thermostat is turned off and on. Which Model is the right one ? Its a millivolt system -750 mv. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

The one your supplier can make the best deal on THAT FIT's.
That'll probably be a RobertShaw 700 + a longer nipple.

Before you change that valve.....
make sure that the pilot flame is enveloping the powerpile head. Many of those pilot assy have a secondary air port that can get dust filled and need to be blown out or a soft pilot flame & low DCMV results.
