You may need to be more detailed in what your asking, for most connections involve couplings! If you could write back with a full model and serial # and the full problem, I would be glad to help.

Gas Hot Water Tank Not Producing Hot Water

Pilot will not stay lit



Trying to light your pilot light and it keeps going out when you turn on you gas valve. This is a common problem when your thermo-couple goes out. The thermo-couple sends a small electrical charge to the gas valve to keep its self lit. When the unit calls for heat the pilot flame gets bigger producing more electric and tells the gas valve to open the main gas valve to the burner tubes. The thermo-couple is an easy item to change most of the time. You will need to follow these steps to change out your thermo-couple:

1. Turn off the gas (there is an inline shut off on the supply line before it reaches the gas valve, you need to turn this crossways to the pipe)

2. Locate the thermo-couple it will look like this and be attached to the gas valve

3. Unscrew the thermo-couple from the gas valve

4. Remove the other end of the thermo-couple from the pilot holder

5. Measure or take the old thermo-couple to the hardware or appliance store with you to get the proper length (there are many different lengths of thermo-couples)

6. Reinstall the bulb end at the pilot

7. Reinstall the threaded end on the Gas Valve (make sure not to cross thread the thermo-couple it should start by hand)

8. Turn the gas valve to the pilot position and hold down the red button wait a few seconds then turn off and do again (you will need to do this around 5 times in order to get the gas back up to the pilot light then try and light the pilot)

9. Try to ignite the pilot light.

10. Once you get the pilot light lit you will want to hold down the button for 60 seconds then turn the gas valve to the on position.

Here is an image of a thermo-couple (they will all look similar to this):

When you first turn it on the gas will light for a couple of minutes then just run no heat. and sometimes it wont light at all. frustrating only 14 months old


check the thermostats in the rear of the machine, one is faulty , its telling the gas to turn off too soon,, remove the wires from them, with needle nose, and check for continuity, if you have that ,, then move to the next one, also, if you have the 2 coil system on the gas valve itself, one or both of those could be going bad,

I have a sg14 fryolater that when main burner ignites there is a backdraft w delayed ignition...basically a little explosion...any ideas..gas valve?


check the thermopile if it is receiving enough heat from the pilot.
if your fryer is a new model one and little explosion happens during the start up, that is the new self cleaning burner feature which cleans burner face during start up.

Igniter comes on but gas won't light


It should glow almost a bright white. If its just an orange glow then replace the ignitor. Its probably just weak. If its weak it will not allow enough current to flow through it to open the gas valve. Good luck _MJ_

Heater won't light


YOU HAVE A BAD THERMOCOUPLE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE FLAME you should see a little match size piece of gold metel connected to a metal tube like then screwed into the gas valve. what happens is when you light the pilot, the gas heats up one end of the thermocouple and the other end changes that heat into microvoltage. the gas valve senses the microvoltage , knows the pilot light is lit then opens the main gas valve. when they go bad they cant send voltage to valve and th valve locks out. you always have to start at off. then depress valve button and turn to pilot and light it. hold button down 3 minutes then turn to full open or main the thermocouples are cheap, call supply houses or service companoies till you find one that will sell you one. unscrew the thermo couple from the valve with a little wrench unwravel the excess tubing , size of a pencil lead in diametor, then the probe part usually slids up through a spring like holder, note position of old sensor before reoming. get end half of new sensor into good pilot flame. reuae old retainers or new ones that come with new t couple.
