These Flame Sensor Rods are the most common replacement part for gas fireplaces manufactured by RE/MAX. They are used to sense if the pilot flame is present or not. If it is not present, the flame sensor rod will send a signal to the gas valve and turn off the gas to prevent any gas leaks or fires. For safety reasons, they need to be replaced every 2 years and should be tested regularly by a professional.
The flame sensor rod is used on gas-fired water heaters to detect flame failure. It is used in conjunction with a flame switch and a control valve. When the temperature of the flame sensor rod rises due to an open flame, the Flame Sensor Rod will close a contact in the Flame Switch, allowing gas to flow to the pilot assembly.
The RHEEM AP17872 Flame Sensor Rod is used with the Rheem AP1787 Ruud Furnace. It is a single rod flame sensor rod.
