Question about Water Heaters
50 gal. ge hot water direct vent. I had the gas valve replaced and the ignitor replaced. Now about every 5-7 days I then have to reset the power vent to get the ignitor to start. It will work fine for about a week and I have to do the same thing again.
Check the amp draw on the motor, If its above the draw specified on the data sticker on the motor itself, then the windings are going bad causing the reset to pop.
If not, then the switch itself is going bad.
