Question about American Standard Water Heaters
Assuming it is not an electric spark, but is really the type with a real pilot light:
Move the gas control on the water heater to PILOT
Push the valve handle on the gas controller down to start the gas flowing to the pilot.
Using a match, light the gas at the pilot while holding the gas controller valve handle down.
Keep the gas valve handle depressed for 30 seconds after lighting.
Release the gas controller vale handle - the pilot should remain lit. If not, repeat lighting one more time
Once the pilot remains lit, turn the gas controller valve to On - this should cause the main flame to come on.
NOTE: DO NOT LIGHT A MATCH IF YOU SMELL A HEAVY CONCENTRATION OF GAS - CALL A SERVICEMAN AND VACATE THE AREA
