I have a new Atwood G6A-7 water heater. The pilot lights fine but gas flow, when it turns on, is so strong it will blow the pilot out. Certain times, it sounds and looks like a mini fire ball going


Clean burner tube with proper brush, such as long spring type for bar-b-Q burner tube that are available at most hardware stores, and make sure you have new burner tube aligned properly (straight on) with brass orifice on gas control. Then be sure to adjust air shutter for nice blue flame, with little orange at tip. Do not give so much air that flame roars or jumps off the end of the burner tube. Too many people think more air, less fuel, but actually, when flame roaring and jumping off end of tube, the heat passes through faster and it takes longer to heat the water inside the tank. Like I said, only enough air to have quiet, steady blue flame. If your not giving it enough air, you'll see dark soot on trailer above water heater, which indicates burning too rich, need more air, or perhaps pilot is partially plugged. Pilot flame should also be blue, not yellow/orange. Small air intake hole on side of fitting just before pilot tube can get spider web, or debris in it as well. Use air to blow that out or a piece of wire like a paper-clip to clean inside that hole.

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.

Sounds like it. Before replacing gas control, try removing thermocouple connection at valve and spray electrical cleaner in there and blow out with compressed air after, being careful not to get it in your eyes. If no electrical cleaner, try WD-40 and blow out after. If you twist up a piece of fine steel wool and insert in there as well and try to spin/twist it to clean contact inside may help as well. Blow out goo after and re-install fitting and try again. If that doesn"t work, replace gas control.
P.S. Highly recommend certified experienced tech perform this control valve replacement if necessary.

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...

Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine and shuts down after a couple of seconds. I can see the diode in the control board continue to spark after ignition I replaced the igniter.


If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.
