SOURCE: Hello.i spilt water on superser gas heater and now switch does not ignite fire. what can I do

It will probably be ok when it finally dries out. Unless you are competent to partially dismantle it and help with towels and warm air from a hairdrier waiting is all you can do.

Meanwhile you will be able to light the fire manually with a match - just turn it on and hold down the knob or button to send gas to the pilot light and apply a lighted match so the pilot light and one burner is alight or as usual. When the pilot light has been on for perhaps a few seconds to half a minute it should remain on as usual.

If the radiants got wet I advise you to run the fire for only a minute or two initially and then when it is thoroughly cold another couple of minutes and repeat until you are confident the radiants are quite dry. You should then be able to use the fire, lighting with a match until the spark begins to work again.

If for some reason there is a yellow flame or soot begins to appear it would be wise not to use it until it has been serviced and certainly never use it in a small enclosed space that is unventilated.

Heater is cycling on and off, less then one minute cycle time between cycles. Sometimes SPK code comes on and stays on without firing. Have shorted water press switch with no effect. Pretty sure gas...

The SPK Code, indicates that there is power to Igniter and should be producing a Spark to ignite fuel! If this is actually the case, then it is NOT a safety sensor issue, The igniter serves a dual purpose: produce a spark, and then CONFIRM a flame is consuming the fuel. If it does not get a proper Milivolt reading, then gas valve will shut off, hence a cycle occurs. Not enough reading is the same to the heater as no reading! Safety issue. If gas valve stays open, and no flame to consume raw fuel, it will build up and accumulate then when ignition takes place, it go...BOOM! Not Good.
Either insufficient fuel supply/pressure or faulty igniter. It's also not a Gas Valve. It's a simple switching valve, either open or closed.

Clicking noise Rinnai Avenger Gas heater

Is sounds like it could be the automatic ignition. If the sound only happens when you are pressing or turning the knob, I would say that is all that it is. Most gas heaters have an ignition switch under the knob. This triggers the ignition to try and spark. light the gas when the knob is depressed.

I have 2 Superser heaters. The newer one ignites at the 2nd or 3rd push of the plunger. However, the older one is a real pain. Some years ago after a summer of inactivity, it failed to ignite so I took...

The first thing I would do is make sure that ignitor is in the proper placement. Compare it to your other one. You can carefully clean ignitor and pilot assembly. Check to see that you have a good strong spark when you push plunger. If not you probably need to replace the ignitor. One thing you can do is to hold pilot control down like usual and light with a match. You can check but a lot of these units use a spark ignitor like they use on propane grills, about $15.00 in most hardware stores. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have a Dyna Glo-pro multi fuel heater. When I turn it on the ingitor starts working and than the fan comes on for a few seconds. Then the system shuts down because it willnot ignite. The tank is full and...

Since it does not ignite, Please check the ignition transformer. This have a secondary voltage of about 20,000 to 25,000 volts, enough to make your igniter
spark, thus, causing the atomized fuel to ignite and burn the fuel. So, please include igniter high voltage cable for ground leak. Ground leak is visible as line sparks when your heater is switched on. If your ignition transformer does not produce sparks at the
igniter, it means it needs to be replaced.
Have it done to make it work. Hope this will help you.

Water heater with electonic igniter will not work in power outage

What type of heater is this? I need to know the model name and make and then we can go threw the process of how to do it. Most gas heaters do not have power to them and I only know of a few tankless heaters that do.
