Question about Atwood LP Gas Water Heater 6 Gal 96117 GC6AA-8
Burner clicks off right away
Are you sure of model number, as it doesn't indicate electronic ignition. That said, if you do have electronic ignition, there is a small thermal cut-out in power line (brown wire) to thermostat terminal. It is inside the clear plastic sleeve and is connected between power wire and thermostat. Pull it apart and remove that thermal cut out temporarily and just connect wire direct to thermostat terminal where other end came off. Now try it, if it ignites and runs good, replace that thermal cut out. If no better, get back to me. That thermal cut out is a safety device in case of flame up, so be sure to replace it once diagnosis confirms it is defective.
