How change robertshaw 110-32f

Turn off gas to the heater close water supply drain the water out of heater.Remove pilot tube assembly remove thermocouple/or thermopile assembly disconnect gas at the union and remove from valve. Use wrench that fits the hex shaped nut that holds the aquastat and water heater in the tapping. Usually the wrench size is 3/4" or 7/8" depending on the unit.

Put pipe dope on the male thread of the valve and keep it off the aquastat bulb, and rethread into the tapping.

Replace the ilot assembly being sure it was not damaged when it was remover if it was damaged replace it. replace the thermocouple/powerpile assembly replace the gas piping from the valve being sure to use pipe dope on the fittings and tighten them enough so they do not leak. Do not use teflon tape because it could get into the gas valve and cause problems.Test the gas piping for leaking do a tight test on the meter if possible or test with testing fluid and look for bubbles or use a gas leak detector that sniffs for gas and beeps when it detects a leak

Fill the water heater up with cold water and check to be sure there are no leaks at the thread where the valve is threaded into the tapping. Open a hot water faucet and be sure the heater is full of water.

Light the pilot and turn the gas on set to the temp that is best suited to you..

When you removed the burner and replaced it did you bump the thermocoupler? If that isn't in the pilot light flame or ignitor heat, it will not allow your gas valve to open and send gas to your burners.

If it isn't misaligned then it could be bad or just corroded/caked and need cleaned.

How do you remove a tmp valve out of a propane gas water heater and are they universal or do I have to go to a Bradford White dealer? Thanks

yes you can get a universal one at any hardware store[about 15$]. shut off cold valve at top of tank and drain tank through drain at bottom of only need to drain enough to get the water level below the t&p valve. you should use dope and teflon on the new threads of the valve to ensure no leaks. a big cresent wrench or pipe wrench will work to unscrew the valve in a counterclockwise direction

I have a raypak heater with robertshaw 7000 gas

Remove the wires from the gas valve and call for it to light. While it is trying to light, take a voltage reading on the wires that go to the valve. If it is sending voltage to the valve and it won't energize the valve then the valve is defective. Just make sure that the valve is being told to come on. It could just be a limit switch. Double check the manual reset limits also before doing the vavle check. Hope this helps.
