    Hello, I am installing a gas stove that has a gas vavle that operates at 750MV. The problem is that the run to the stat is rather long, about 100 Ft. I am worried that the voltage drop will cause a problem. I was thinking of connecting a 24VAC transformer to the stat and having it close the gas valve thru a relay. The 24VAC would throw the coil in the relay and the 750MV would simply be closed thru the relay to the gas valve. Any problems with this idea?

    Exellent idea, but I have to question the thermostat location. No way in hell a thermostat for a gas stove should be located that far away from it...
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    HI Mark, you are correct. The stat is only located 25-30 feet away. The problem is with the routing of the 18/2 wire. Unfortunately all walls are finished and no access above. I had to go down thru the floor into the attic below and then route. That is why the wire is so long.
    Thanks for the assurance.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
