Question about Water Heaters
I ignited the pilot and it still doesn't warm up water
Every part has been replaced by new units except the tank and the water do not heat up the water. The water is hot 3 inches on the bottom and three hour later the water is still cold on the top of the tank.
The ingnitor is still lite and the flame is still going but I dont get hot water. The Gas Company assured me of no leaks and ever part was in place. Whats the problem?

SOURCE: Electric Water Heater Problem
When an electric water heater fails to heat water, either the power to the water heater has been interrupted or there is a problem with the controls or the heating elements. 1) Be sure electricity is being delivered to the appliance. Check the main switch on the water heater and the circuit breaker (or fuse) that serves the water heater. 2) Check the high-temperature cutoff in the water heater. Open the panel, and push the reset button. 3) If these steps don’t solve the problem, call an appliance repairperson.

LP OR NAT GAS , IF IT IS LP CHECK GAS PRESSURE @ TANK AND MAKE SURE NOT TO HIGH , IF NAT STILL COULD BE THE PROBLEM HAVE THE GAS COMPANY CK PRESSURE

Hi .. if this is a brand new heater, then you probably need to have the gas line bled. This means getting all the air out of the gas line feeding the burner. This can be done by constantly trying to light the burner or poilot . or it can be bled down by a HVAC tech.

You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you have a defective gas control, thats the big metal unit, with the dial on it, it needs to be replaced, no repairs can be made to it.
THIS IS A GAS PRODUCT, INCORRECT REPAIR CAN CAUSE A EXPLOSION, AND DEATH CAN OCCUR. IF YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER TOOLS SUCH AS MANOMETER AND LEAK DETECTORS, I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT A SERVICE COMPANY
