For a gas appliance to work it must pass a series of tests for safety reasons. there is a flame sensor that "sees" the flame and allows the system to proceed normally. If it is blocked by dirt, insects, or whatever, the system will shut down. By your own admission the system has sat idle for a long time. find and clear the flame sensor and it will probably work. You could go to the manufacturer's website and get a diagram, showing where the sensor is located. good luck, John

"Infinity 20" probably 8yrs old now. Recently started making a humming noise whilst in use. The noise continues 15secs or so after hot water tap has been turned off.


Sounds like the diaphram in the gas control valve which is not replacable. You would have to replace the gas control valve and I would also suggest replacing the thermocouple. However since the heater is 8 years old you may think about replacing the entire hot water heater. Depending on how much water has gone through it in these past 8 years it will probably rust out soon and then you will be dealing with a flood.

Good luck,

Marty

I have a GG40T06/487-246 GE SmartWater Water Heater, it is about 10 years old and now there is leak on the position of the stem of the reset button connecting to the gas valve. Any suggestions to replace...


A 10 year old water heater is at the end of its life expectancy. No sense replacing a gas valve to have the tank rust out next month. I'ld replace the whole unit. Also, install a drip pan, under it and a WAGS safety device. Any water in the pan and the WAGS will shut off he Water and Gas. If your water heater has an expansion tank near by, replace that too.

Pilot light will not stay on Bosch natural gas tankless water hea


Check to make sure the flame of the pilot is hitting the thermocoupling. If not then you can use compressed air to clean the pilot port and relight and check again. If the flame is hitting the thermocouple, then it may need to be replaced.

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.
