Hi i have a atwood 22.7 litre water heater model mpd93754 . IT ignites heats water, but wont shut off when it gets too hot. could you please help solve this problem . many thanks rod baker.


Gas control valve thermostat might be bad.
The copper cylinder located on back of gas control that sticks into water is the thermostat.
If thermostat is not reading correct temperature, then gas might stay lit.
Usually the gas control will sense overheated water and trip the ECO so no gas will flow to burner.
In any case, the gas control valve is replaced.

I have a Jayco pop up with an Atwood water heater, serial # 37C14U-5. My problem is two-fold. The water heater pilot doesn't stay lit after initial run, and propane is leaking out of the vent on the...


Leaking propane is red flag #1 and fire hazard.
Immediately update your insurance and then turn off gas.
If pilot is not staying lit, then gas leak can be cause of pilot problem since pressure on the line is reduced.
Other causes include bad gas control valve, air in the gas line, bad thermocouple, burner parts need cleaning, or all the above.
After fixing leak, replace thermocouple, clean combustion chamber and burner parts, and bleed gas line to remove air.

Pilot light stays lit BUT burner will not light


Sounds like gas control needs replacing. Before you do, Shut gas off at valve and your tanks and take a 3/8 or 7/16 wrench and remove the end of the thermocouple that screws in to gas control. Now spray a shot of WD-40in the hole it came out of. Now take a piece of fine steel wool and twirl it in your fingers until it's a few inches long and small enough round to put down in that hole and spin it with your fingers to clean surface where thermocouple seats, well. Use compressed air and blow it out now. Take a little piece of fine steel wool again and rub end of thermocouple that goes in the hole, so it's nice and shiny and clean. Now re-assemble, snug it up and re-try lighting. If pilot stays on, but burner won't light, and your 100% sure water is not already hot, ( check temperature coming out pressure relief valve, carefully) and temperature lever is over to hot setting, then replace gas control. One good indication of a faulty control is if you move the temperature lever all the way over to coldest and back all the way over to hottest and you don't hear it click.

Burner lites but goes out after 2 or 3 min.


the white rodgers gas control needs to be replaced;
the way it works is: the thermocouple opens the pilot gas circuit and, holds it open
when it heats up by creating a magnetic field in the gas control then: when you turn
the knob on the gas control to "on" a valve inside the gas valve opens the main gas circuit and, electricity supplied by your RV keeps it open.
the main gas coil inside the gas valve is defective and, can not hold the main gas circuit to the burner open anymore.

The pilot on My atwood water heater will not stay lit after I release the knob. I have replaced the thermocouple and have a nice blue flame.


Did you make sure the connection between the thermocouple and the control is tight and that the tip of the thermocouple is in the flame?

10 gal atwood water heater goes through 2-3 cycles on gas befor it will stay lit


If propane has been off for some time, good chance air in line, and it takes 2 or 3 tries to bleed air out. If this happens while you've been using it regularly, then maybe a cleaning of electrode would help, as it is a flame sensor as well.
