    It is fairly simple. Yank out the thermocouple at the pilot. Use a good fitting 3/8ths wrench to remove the thermocouple from the gas valve. (MORE)

Thermo coupler is held in place with a clamp bracket at the pilot end and a small brass line nut on the other end going into the gas valve.The pilot flame must surround the sensing bu or wrap itself around it Press the pilot button for a few seconds and fire up the pilot flame. Wait a few more minutes and turn the gas vale on for the main burners. If it fires, your set.Good Luck,Ned

Rheem #22DV50-38,pilot light keeps going out.Thermal coupler has been changed.


Most gas water heater problems can be solved by cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, and bleeding air out of gas line, checking gas pressure, and making sure gas shut-off handle is turned-on and parallel with gas line:
Many things cause pilot light to go out including dirty parts, air in gas line, and hot-unventilated atmosphere.

Will only throw flames if holdin button in


the thermal coupler could be bad. try and hold the gas button down for about 15 to 20 seconds and see if the flame will stay on after that amount of time when button is released. if it still goes out - then replace the coupling with a new one and all should be good after that.

How to repair a thermal coupler on a 1994 gas water heater


Time to get a new tank. The life expectancy is between 10-15 years. You are probably spending more in natural gas to heat than the tank is worth.

Physical difference between natural & propane orfice


Merry Lynn, there will be no physical differences between Natural Gas heaters and Propane Gas heaters. Check the model number of the unit, it may have a N or P or LP printed at the end of it to distinguish which gas it uses. The plate that is attached to the heater should indicate the type of gas it uses.

 

DO NOT try to convert this heater to another gas.
