SOURCE: Atwood GCH10A-4E won't heat in electric mode. 12v

CHECK THE FUSES AND CIRCUIT BREAKERS IN THE CONVERTER BOX. MAKE SURE THE 110V SWITCH BEHIND THE WATER HEATER IS TURNED ON. IF THERE IS POWER AND "ALL" THE 110V SWITCHES ARE ON, TIME TO OHM OUT THE HEATING ELEMENT, LOCATED UNDER THE BOX BEHIND THE WATER HEATER.
IN ORDER TO HAVE 12V AT THE CIRCUIT BOARD, 112V POWER HAS TO GO THRU THE RELAY. SOUNDS LIKE U HAVE A WIRING PROBLEM SOMWHERE, EITHER AT THE SWITCH OR AT THE WATER HEATER SOMEWHERE.

SOURCE: I have an Atwood Direct Ignition Model G6A-4E 6 Water Heater

I am a RV service tech and that is an old unit. Your control board is bad but with the age of that unit I would strongly suggest replacing the whole water heater, you can shove a pile of money at it and still have an old water heater when for 3 to 500 bucks you can have a new one with a 2 year warranty

SOURCE: The water heater on my motorhome guit working on

Obviously breakers are marked wrong, and good thing you checked. I always double check as well, seeing how I've found many mislabeled right from factory, or perhaps previous owners switched them and never changed original labeling. I need to ask though, are you sure the light is not just for the electronic ignition for the propane? Most have a red light to indicate propane side did not light when tried, and no light for hydro side. Have you also checked for another switch on side of cover at back of water heater where you see hydro cable going in to it? I guess I should ask as well, if you've owned this motorhome for a while, or is it new to you? I'm not trying to be sarcastic, but sometimes I forget to ask that and then find out they're new at this.

SOURCE: Switch left on now Atwood

If no water in it when switch left on for hydro use, you probably burned out the element. They burn out pretty quick when no water. You have to shut off breaker to it for safety, and remove back cover where you see hydro cable going in to access it.

How do i replace the power cord in an rv that has been cut off


3 wire cord or 4 wire cord?
3 wire would be normally 120 volts
4 wires would be 240 volts
don't know if that would be common in an RV? If 120, is it 15 amp or 20 amp?
Again, would not know if 20 A would be found in an RV? If 20 A you would have one position in the cord - Sideways.

Any with the presumption 120 Volt - Same for either 15A or 20 A , Black wire onto Gold lug.
White wire onto Silver lug.
Green wire onto Green lug

if 220, comment back

My Atwood GC10A-3E will come on the first time I flip the switch. After that it will not relight until I turn it off and back on. When it relights it sounds like an explosion in the tube. I feel it is...


Sounds like some adjustments are needed. Air shutter for one, and ignitor/electrode. Have you by chance observed outside with cover open when it tries to re-light? My guess is that it is sparking/trying to ignite, but adjustments are needed for proper ignition. A good cleaning of burner tube, electrode, and proper adjustment of electrode & air mixture should cure your problem.

I have a Atwood GC10A-3E and the gas is working fine but the electric is not. i checked the element and went ahead and replaced it since i had it out anyways. i then relized that one of the wires had been...


Sounds like the new thermostat and ECO you installed, You may have got them mixed up. The ECO will have a small reset push button in between the 2 spade connectors. The ECO should be second in line, as in power to it comes from the thermostat. Hot (black) line from switch goes to thermostat first, then from opposite spade on thermostat to spade on ECO, then out from ECO to element. Double check wiring or positioning of thermostat and ECO, and correct as needed, and make sure to push reset in center of ECO, then try again. Be sure both are touching up against tank well too.
The thermostat has a little lower temperature setting, and if it fails, ECO takes over and cuts out at a little higher temperature. That's why I suspect they got mixed up, otherwise thermostat (without reset) should have cut power at proper temperature, unless it's faulty, or not touching against tank properly.

Let me know how you make out and what you found.

Have we met? Getting some Deja vue here.
Make sure you have propane to the heater by lightly loosening the line at the heater. If so, turn the heater off for 30 minutes make sure the gas line is tight. then attempt ipilot light again
