SOURCE: new gas water heater pilot light will not ignite

Hi .. if this is a brand new heater, then you probably need to have the gas line bled. This means getting all the air out of the gas line feeding the burner. This can be done by constantly trying to light the burner or poilot . or it can be bled down by a HVAC tech.

SOURCE: I have a G6A-7E electronic ignite water heater.

Make sure propane is on and getting to your stove burners ok, first, then try switching it back on. If it fails to ignite, shut switch off and try a couple of times, if still no ignition, get back to me.

You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

You are correct, there should be no flame after it shuts off. Pull the + wire off at contacts as well and see if flame remains, if it does, the gas valve is faulty (leaking by) and should be replaced.

Very simple, do you have a 12 volt light tester, or multimeter?
First thing to try is to remove the thermal cut-off from circuit and try it. That's the little diode like thing inside the plastic sleeve below pressure relief valve. Remove it from the circuit and hook female spade from end, directly to thermostat where other end was before. If that does it, replace thermal cut-off.
If not, start testing for 12 volts when trying to ignite, from one side of thermostat, then over to ECO, or just go directly to gas control connection. If 12 volts getting to gas control, thermostat and ECO are o.k.
Are you getting spark at electrode?

Igniter on gas water heater only sparks once


First pull the ignitor wire off the ignition module...hold a screwdriver 1/8 to 1/4 inch away from the electrode pin on the module then turn the unit on to see if it sparks differently than what you described before you replace the ignitor.

We believe we are to turn on the water electric button to start the heater. Directions say the light should go out when ignition occurs. It won't go out.


If your water heater has an electric element, as well as electronic ignition for gas operation, you may be getting them mixed up. One switch should show like a lightning bolt beside it,(that's for hydro use) the other will show a small gas flame beside it.(that's to turn on ignition for gas operation.)
If you only have one, my guess is it's for electronic ignition. When you turn that on, you should hear the water heater trying to ignite outside.("click,click,click) and then burner should ignite if you have your propane on. Get back to me with your model number of the heater, behind cover outside, and I can tell by that what you have as far as just gas, gas and electric, etc.
