Light Pilot light - hot water heater

I had to turn off my gas main in order for my oven to be repaired.  Now, I cannot light my hot water heater pilot.  It is very old, a Montgomery Ward heater model srm 33713.  It tells me how to light the pilot (the steps), but I am not sure where to put the flame?

I don't know how high the water got but if only the burner was covered it is probably just dirt. Try replacing the thermocouple this is usually less than $10. If the gas valve itself was wet REPLACE THE WATER HEATER!!!!!!! Never trust a gas valve that has been wet!!!!! It can seem to work just fine but get stuck in the open position defeating all safety measures.

Ward Floor Heater, Model 570 EDR, works but is outputting much less heat than normal. Any information about where to look, parts I might need, etc would be greatly appreciated.


"The valve stem labeled Hot at 12 oclock and Off at 3 oclock,"
Is probably the problem. I'd try wd-40 overnight to see if it would free up the valve. It worked on a similar problem outside gas grill valve.

you didn't specify whether it was electric or gas, so i'll assume it's gas. Clean or replace the thermocouple that the pilot light heats. Yes it could be the thermostat as well.

You need a very kong wire and a kitchen match. Turn the knob on top to pilot and push down have your flame already down thru the pilot hole at the bottom of the inside of furnace. Hold for a few seconds and release knob trun to heat. This unit works on a power pile systm and generates milivolts from the flame. Rus

I believe I had the same problem with my water heater about 15 years ago. It started with a small leak, then the tank broke flooding the room. I think it would be be best to replace the unit. Water heaters tipically have a 8-10 year life.
