No easy fix . your water heater should be fine most likely its up to temp ,thats why its not lighting its main flame . the frozen pipe is another story you need to get the heat up in the house open any cuppord doors that have pipes in them like under a sink ( to let heat from the room get it there ) leave a faucet on hot and wait . at some point you will unfreeze . but you migh end up with a broken pipe so keep your eye out for a water leak . good luck

When handle in shower is turned to hot cold water comes out when turned to cold hot water comes out how to fix


Who ever hooked the pipes up to the tap they put the cold pipe on the hot side of tap. Same the other side. You need to change the pipes to opposite side of tap.

No water on the hot side of line. Have rinnai gas tankless water heater. 22 degrees last night but had pipes wrapped. Have cold water pressure but not pressure on hot side. Tried to thaw pipes


You will need to have heat in the room to thaw pipes . Cold will come in from flue pipe and freeze pipes . its a slow thaw so pipes don't split .

Hot water in kitchen only froze


good idea to let the cold water to run a bit to stop freezing up . Pity that you didn't do the same with the hot water. There is only hot water in the tank but the water in the hot water pipes will freeze as the heat goes out of the pipes. (Always to have to wait for the hot water to come through when you use the shower or bath.) The water will freeze up right back to the hot water tank

Hello. When the pipe froze it may have dislodged a piece of scale or rust from inside the pipe. When the water flowed again the particle moved up to the small hole at the valve and caused a partial block. You'll have to shut off the water supply and disconnect the supply line on the hot side. You may be able to open the faucet and blow back through to try to remove the blockage. If this don't work remove the faucet handle and pull the cartdrige out to clean it. Remember to close the water supply.

Duissamble the faucet after turning off the shutoff vavev and look for an obstruction. The only shutoff if the tempature gets too high is the pressure/tempature pop off valve which would redrirect the discharge down another path. Go to the waterheater and see if it is coming out from another open pipe from the heater.

Washer won't drain


Yes Get a space heater and run it by the frozen pipe. Turn off all electricity to avoid shock and it should break free by the morning. Run it at a drip from now on during really cold night just like the sink but set washer on DRAIN this will help. Good LUCK
