I have an old HEATALATORgas fired fireplace and the valve went bad.
the new robert shaw valve is the same as the old one except the jumper wire for the magnet ithink it is called,is not the same as the old one.
The old one has a thermocoupler threaded into where the jumper wire goes.
what is the installation method for this new valve. Should Iremove the old thread in thermocoupler or is their a new wiring process??

Can you help me with this??

Exclamation wrong valve

You have two totally different valve. The older valves were powered by a thermopile only. The newer valve is designed for quick dropout pilots that have a thermocouple and thermopile. These quick dropout pilots came into general use in 1995 and are found on gas direct vent fireplaces.

You cannot modify the valve or you will void the warranty and listing. Get the correct valve from HL by providing them with the model, serial # and mfg. date code (4 digits next to serial #).

HTH,
