Question about Water Heaters
My water heater is only a few years old and since I bought the house it's in, which is only a few years old as well I've had it shut off and when I check it the pilot is lit, but the burner is not and the water is cold so I turned the switch off and back on and it lights and I'm good for a few months or less. this has happened several times over a year. Now the burner won't light and the pilot won't either. It has an electric pilot start and I don't hear it click even showing it's trying to start. I reset the thermostat and unplugged the whole thing and nothing seems to get it to work. The fan on top runs so I know it has power. What's up with this? Is it the starter messing everything up?
I found out that the switch at the top of the tank by the exhaust fan was bad.

The switch is broken, or the voltage on the power from the wall is lower than the voltage on the tank and therefore it could only powering one thing
