Gas forge FAQs

Q. My forge won’t stay lit when I release the flame failure device (FFD/safety valve)

  1. Make sure the tip of the thermocouple is being licked by the flame and that the chimney is clear.
  2. Make sure the thermocouple has been fastened finger-tight into the interrupter block and that the interrupter block has been fastened finger-tight into the FFD (safety valve).
  3. If the forge still isn’t working, remove the interrupter block and thermal sensor leads and screw the thermocouple directly into the FFD (finger-tight).
  4. If still unsuccessful, replace the thermocouple, interrupter block, thermal sensor and leads with new parts.
