I don't believe it's in a thermowell. If memory serves me correctly, I asked Craig about that before I bought my stove. I think he told me that the thermocouple is attached to the wall of the waterjacket and then spray foamed over. I work with industrial controls, and in 20yrs I've only very rarely witnessed the thermocouple going bad. I won't say it doesn't happen, but my money is on the controller. And now that I've said that, it probably will be the thermocouple...........Sorry.......
