The gov. says the law required the safety switches like yours be in use.
The problem you have with these type of safety switches is, The thermocouple in the pilot flame will produce a millivolt current of about
30 to 32 millivolt When we test them a 18 or less is bad. Your safety in this
circuit might drop the voltage by 8 or 10. So this means you have to have a
good magnet in the gas valve, a real good thermocouple and a good clean
pilot or you will not get the pilot to stay light. Later Paul
