We got a new waterheater for our mobilehome the one we had was a 40gal we could not find a 40gal so we got a 30gal the water does not get very hot and does not stay hot could it be the wrong orfice because they told us this waterheater couldbe used for propane or natural gas we have natural gasa
DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!
Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.
Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.
A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.
The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.
