    What kind of system do you have and what brand is the gas valve. is it a honeywell gas valve? if so just remove the gas pipes from the old valve and install them on the new one and remove wires from the old one and place on the new one

After you do that be sure to check for any gas leaks with a solution of soap and water thick enough so that it will buble and stay on the jonts of pipe.

    also you cannot tighten the piping thru the valve.(always have a wrench on the side of the gas valve that you are putting the piping on.

Our Rinnai Infinity HWS is displaying error message 12 and no hot water is available


The following could cause this. I would call a licensed plumber to fix this issue.

Check that the gas is turned on at the water heater and gas meter. Check for obstructions in

the flue outlet.

Ensure gas line, meter, and/or regulator is sized properly.

Ensure gas type and pressure is correct.

Bleed all air from gas lines.

Ensure proper Rinnai venting material was installed.

Ensure condensation collar was installed properly.

Ensure vent length is within limits.

Verify dip switches are set properly.

Ensure appliance is properly grounded.

Disconnect keypad.

Disconnect EZConnect™ or MSA controls to isolate the problem.

Check power supply for loose connections.

Check power supply for proper voltage and voltage drops.

Ensure flame rod wire is connected.

Check flame rod for carbon build-up.

Disconnect and reconnect all wiring harnesses on unit and PC board.

Check for DC shorts at components.

Check gas solenoid valves for open or short circuits.

Remove burner plate and inspect burner surface for condensation or debris.

The above is what #12 indicates.

No way to fix it without further hands on investigation. I seriously recommend you call a licensed plumber.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Pilot light won't light and I changed the thermo coupler.

Don't know what type of gas appliance your are working on, but if you installed a thermocouple, the biggest mistake made is screwing it into the control valve to tightly. When installing a thermocouple, it should be tightened only finger tight and with an appropriately sized wrench turned only a quarter turn more. Over tightening it will casue the gas control valve to lockup and gas can't reach the pilot.

Also, after reinstalling the thermocouple, be sure the control knob is really in the Pilot position. You can tell if it is, as knob will fully depress and bottom out,. And you'll feel more than spring pressure pushing back at you.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I'm replacing my gas furnace with a ac/heater unit that uses 240 voltage and want to know how many volts my furnace uses

If it's a 240 volt system, the maximum voltage required is 240 volts. Which would be what the furnace needs/uses to operate properly. But, I suspect what you really wanted to know is what is the amperage that's used/required. In most installations, it requires to 60 amp circuit breakers. However, yours may require less or more. Check the installation manual for more specific requirements.

I just had it installed and smell gas. if it says unvented , does it need vented or am i ok. im 73 yrs old and dont know much about gas heaters

An un-vented heater should never smell like raw gas, you may get an odor of combustion by-products but never raw gas. If you are getting the raw gas smell you either have a gas leak or incomplete combustion. Always follow manufacturers operation instructions that state "open window 1/4" to allow combustion air" If the unit is brand new, you will get an odor for 20 minutes or so of oils burning off of the heater but that smell should go away. Do you have a Carbon monoxide detector in the house? You should!

Just installed an A O Smith 50gal NG water heater.and can not get it to lit. I have checked the presence of gas at the control valve inlet. I have mechanically held the pilot knob on the gas valve...

Did you have the main gas valve shut off to the house? I know this sounds like a really dumb question, but if the gas line is installed and sealed properly where it goes into the control valve inlet, how did you go about checking for the presence of gas there? If there is in fact, gas going into the valve and no gas coming out at the pilot when you are holding the pilot knob, then you have to have a defective control or a pilot gas tube that is smashed completely shut. It is also possible that dirt and/or debris got into the control unit during the installation process and has things clogged up.

We are installing a kelvinator ksv70hra split system air conditioner. What size pipes does the electrician need to install?

If the installation is not done by an experienced AC technican who does not know the size of the piping , I would not recommend you to proceed further as you might end up with a faulty installation. Please get this work done by a person who knows the subject or else the pipe connections and fittings may not be good enough to prevent leak of the gas thereby reducing yourr efficiency and reduce cooling.
There is more to this than just fitting the pipes and I advice you follow them wisely.

How do you install a plenum on a trane 4ycy gas pack unit

Hi, The first thing you need is the experience. I can not give you this kind of information over the Internet. Gas packs come in so many different sizes, makes and models, you would have to have the proper tools and know how to install a return/supply air Plenum. Contact you're local wholesale house as they have duct-u-lators to figure the size you will need and they do have prefabbed Units. I would strongly recommend this. Good Luck,

Furnace blowing cold air

Hello , I think I can help , It sounds like the gas valve as long as your sure there is plenty of gas going to the unit and you have an electronic ignitor , if there is a pilot light its not electronic. the gas valve should come as an assembly to install and its pretty easy to complete. Let me know if you need more help. Good luck
