There are many more
parts inside your cooker than you even begin to imagine! To ensure your cooker
is working properly, all of these parts must be fully functioning to allow you
to cook with no interruptions and perhaps more importantly, cook with no safety
issues. Below we will discuss what a flame failure device and thermocouples do
when they are attached to your cooker, and why they are so important in
allowing you to use your gas cooker safely?
So what do both parts
do when they are attached to your cooker, and why are they important? Let’s
start with the flame failure device or as it is also commonly referred to, the
FFD. A flame failure device is responsible for shutting off the gas supply in
your cooker if the flame is extinguished for any reason. So the reasons why it
is an important safety mechanism are very clear, as it ensures the gas supply
in your appliance is cut off safely when the flame is extinguished.
Now let’s move on to a
thermocouple. Again it performs a similar function to an FFD, but in a slightly
different way. The thermocouple on your gas cooker is responsible for closing
the gas valve to help prevent gas leaks. So you can agree that both parts are
an important in terms of keeping you and your appliance safe, whether it is
being used or not.

over the functionality of either your flame failure device or thermocouple,
