!990 Bounder By Fleetwood Water Heater is not lighting the propane

I have a Atwood 6 Gallon Gas Water Heater Model #G6A-6E electronic ignite water heater. When I turn the switch to on I hear the mechanism clicking to try to ignite but then the light goes red and all clicking stops. Any advice? I did try turning it off after 5-15 seconds but nothing, no gas is getting to the tank, just the clicking

Check the gas line orifice for a spider web. Its possible the gas is not able to get past the web.

Need to add electric heating element and thermastate to g6a-6e gas water heater


I don't know how you can drill into aluminum tank and install element.
That seems a good way to ruin the heater.
Why not just buy small 'under counter' 1500 watt electric water heater at local box store and install in-line before the water reaches atwood gas heater.

Otherwise I do not have a solution.
Don't blow yourself up by messing with gas appliance.

Need to replace G6A-6E Atwood waterheater, what replacement model can I use?


Why not the same model/size? Atwood 6 gal, works on propane with electronic ignition. Or, you can get the 6 gallon with electronic ignition, and electric element as well provided you are willing to run hydro to water heater as well, if not already there. Check any RV parts site for prices and availability. Some places are out of stock currently. I assume your current tank is leaking?

I just replaced my gas valve thermostat on my 6 gallon Atwood water heater model G6A-7 and the pilot lights fine, but as soon as I turn up the gas, the flame almost engulfs the tank. There is even a flame...


Hi,
There are a couple of things to check....
I am assuming that the gas is LP or Propane....
make sure that the gas valve is for the right gas and not natural gas...
Also, it is possible that the regulator that cuts the pressure from the tanks is bad and that maybe why the original gas valve failed....
If you have the correct gas valve installed, get a gauge and check the pressure of the gas right before the gas valve...it should be somewhere between 8 and 12 inches water column...
If the regulator is not working properly, check that the vent hole in the regulaor is not plugged by a mud wasp nets or something like that...

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.

How hot are the 12 volt house lights suppose to get? I'm plugged in to a 20amp. I have a 2000 Fleetwood bounder


They get hot, just like a regular bulb. It will burn your fingers. Ever see a car's brake lights that have melted through the lens? Hope this helps.

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
