There could be something stuck in the pilot assembly since you added a new tank to system. Check to make sure flame is hitting thermalcouple. Can you wait for a repair man to come and take pilot assembly out and clean. He will also replace thermalcouple. If you can't wait and you feel comfortable with taking pilot assembly out. Turn gas and electric off to unit then pull cover panel off. Pilot assembly is held in with two screws. Take tube off of gas valve and take off thermalcouple line off gas valve too. take out pilot assebly. Once you have it out take gas line off bottom of pilot assembly. There is a orfice in side make sure you can see through the orfice. You can also clean thermalcouple with a wire brush or sand papper. Reinstall pilot assembly make sure all fittings are tight. turn gas back on and light pilot. If everything looks good turn power on. Turn heat up run heater for a few minutes then turn heater down and let sit to see if it will stay on.

Pilot lite will not stay on when I release the igniter pressure knob REH-18-N wall heater!


IS there gas? YES ok. So if you can get the pilot lit, but when you let up on the button it goes out. Few things to check. On some heaters the manf. install a safety switch to drop the pilot out if its not venting or if its over heating.

Since this heater was only purchased last year, if it is faulty they should cover it under warrantee. If you call Hayward technical support they should be able to help you figure out what the next step is. I hope this helps.

First, I've had a motorcycle for almost 50 years and have never drained the gas. At one point it was not used for 3 years. It started, I added gas and it ran fine.
Second, next time you are running the machine and it begins to stall, immediately loosen the gas cap. If it starts to run good again, drill out the air vents on the cap.

Low boy water heater leaks at point where cold water pipe enters caseing.The leak is below the threads.The caseing is rusted at the point where the pipe goes through.Can this rusted place be patched or...


1) Your water heater needs to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
Tanks rust out after anode rod is depleted unless anode is inspected and replaced 1-3 years.
Water softener causes anode to deplete quicker, so inspect every 2 years.
Also stray household current can cause tank to rust out. Put bare copper ground wire between hot and cold pipes on new heater.

2) First thing is protect yourself from tank rupture where water heater bursts open and water runs until it's shut off. Ruptured tanks are big topic in homeowner insurance industry today because they cause major damage inside house.

- Turn off heat source so tank is not under pressure:
Gas: Rotate dial to pilot so pilot light stays lit, but burner does not turn on
Electric: turn off circuit breaker

- Turn off water going into tank using shut off above tank.
- Open hot side to bathtub to relieve pressure from tank.
- Check label on side of tank to get tank specifications for replacement.

3) What to do until replacement.
You can get by for a while on leaking tank by turning it ON only when needed.
Make sure tank is full of water before turning heat source back on.
This will buy time until replacement.
Electric tank heats 21 gallons water per hour.
Gas water heater 41 gallons per hour
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water, bath uses 12-15 gallon hot water.

4) Additional reading so next tank lasts longer

DO NOT USE this heater until you have an expert look at it . Propane or Natural gas heaters that are not burning properly can and will emit C.O. (Carbon Monoxide) a deadly gas . When C.O is produced , although odourless in itself , does have a very strong burning type odour that comes from Aldehydes that are also produced along with the C.O.

Wall heater not working properly--sputtering blue flame


Ok, either your fuel pressure is too low or too high.. When you light the unit, Light it in low, then turn it up slowly Just crack open your tank valve.about1/4 turn. The air in the tubes has to be displaced with gas before you get a good flame
