Question about Water Heaters
My water heater stopped working however when I removed it from the wall and gave it a good shake and re-fixed it - it worked fine for about a week and then stopped. The ignition is not firing up and the gas is not coming through (can't be lit by hand) when the hot tap is turned on. It seems to me some sort of valve is sticking which also shuts off the gas.............any ideas
Yes that is going to be the contoll valve on that heater. You can probley fix it very easy with the right part. You will need to locate a plumbing supply over there in the UK. Give them the make and model number and tell them you need a unitroll gas valve for it.
