I have a new Atwood G6A-7 water heater. The pilot lights fine but gas flow, when it turns on, is so strong it will blow the pilot out. Certain times, it sounds and looks like a mini fire ball going


Clean burner tube with proper brush, such as long spring type for bar-b-Q burner tube that are available at most hardware stores, and make sure you have new burner tube aligned properly (straight on) with brass orifice on gas control. Then be sure to adjust air shutter for nice blue flame, with little orange at tip. Do not give so much air that flame roars or jumps off the end of the burner tube. Too many people think more air, less fuel, but actually, when flame roaring and jumping off end of tube, the heat passes through faster and it takes longer to heat the water inside the tank. Like I said, only enough air to have quiet, steady blue flame. If your not giving it enough air, you'll see dark soot on trailer above water heater, which indicates burning too rich, need more air, or perhaps pilot is partially plugged. Pilot flame should also be blue, not yellow/orange. Small air intake hole on side of fitting just before pilot tube can get spider web, or debris in it as well. Use air to blow that out or a piece of wire like a paper-clip to clean inside that hole.

Hot water heater sweeting from top


Water on top of gas heater can be caused by poor venting, or inadequate combustion.
Make sure water is not coming up from under tank top, indicating tank leak requiring tank replacement.
Have a plumber look at problem to make sure home is not filling with deadly, odorless CO gas.
Inspect pipes that they are not corroded and covered with condensate.
Check that roof cap is in place.
Let heater fire and burn for a few moments so the fire is going good, and then light match just outside the draft hood on top of heater. Blow out match and see if smoke draws immediately into vent and upward.

Burner lights but then shuts off after about a minute


What's happening is a good indication that the pilot assembly and the burner assembly may need cleaning. Insects can really clog it up. If after thoroughly cleaning the pilot and burner assemblies the burner still shuts off,check the gas tank and make sure it's at east 2/3rds full. After reconnecting the hose to the tank, open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until the valve is full open. Then attempt to light the pilot and the burner. If every things works as it should, you solved the problem.

If you find you need to order a thermocouple, I have provided a link to the Blue Rhino Company, the manufacturer of Uniflame Patio Heaters and you can order it thru them.

It does not light either by pilot light switch or with a match


If you are sure that your propane tank is not empty you may have a safety feature malfunction. Unscrew the propane tank. wait two minutes and then reinstall the tank. That will reset the safety feature.

How do i set my my motorola h350 into discoverable mode


Plug the Motorola charger into the end of

minute for the light to turn on. When the
headset's battery is fully charged (about 2
hours), the blue indicator light turns off.

With the headset power off, press and hold
the Call button for 6 to 10 seconds until the
blue indicator light turns on and remains
steadily lit.
Note: The blue light will flash as you press and hold the Call
button. Continue holding down the Call button until the blue

Note: If you let go of the Call button before the blue light is
on and steady, ensure that your headset is off before trying
again.

Blue light blinking, tank full, water not heating up

You need to prime the machine with water. Fill the water tank. Plug the machine in and turn the power on. Instructions state the lights will flash, but they won't. Blue water drop will illuminate indicating the machine is empty (the water tank is full, but the pipes in the machine are empty until you do the following). Place a cup under the steam wand, and rotate the steam knob fully to the "on" position (fully clockwise as you view it from the side until you hit the hard stop). No need to use force, just rotate until you hear the pump turn on. At this point, you'll hear a pump running, and after 10-30 seconds, water will be ejected from the wand. Continue until the blue light goes out and you're ready to brew. At this point, I think the lights flash and it comes up to temp. One more thing, when using the steam wand, always turn the knob until the pump engages, or you run the risk of emptying the water line. Hope this helps and enjoy!

My Rheem hot water tank just started leaking alot of water from underneath im looking for any advice on what the problem could be also how to obtain a copy of the user manual Thanks Kelly


If it's leaking at the bottom of the tank, this is usually an indication that the tank has rusted through.
It's most likely time to replace.
Make sure it's coming from the tank by looking in where the pilot light is... with a flashlight..

Empire corcho ventless propane wall heater 15000 btu


LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

Vulcan oil heater


1. Check electricity is on.
2. Check oil is in the tank and valve turned on.
3. Switch the fan off at the bottom left hand corner.
4. Switch oil knob to No.1.
5. Set Air knob to No.3.
6. Operate re set button (right hand corner of heater under settings dial). Either press in until it clicks or if the pull out version pull out until it clicks.

Wait - ignition should take place in a few minutes and flames will appear on the left of the burner under the radiants.

You should get occasional yellow crests above the pure blue flame just visible below the top row of burner holes under the radiants.

After the red warning light goes out you can adjust to higher settings.

The radiants do not glow on low setting.

You can adjust the heater on to higher settings but this should be done gradually - no more than 2 settings at a time.

Some warnings:

* The unit must be correctly earthed.
* Do not use anything except heater oil.
* Never attempt to re-light the heater when it is hot.
* If the red light does not appear when the oil knob is switched on, immediately turn the oil knob off. Reasons include: Heater is too hot; Electric plug turned off; failure of ignition system.

Good luck - no responsibility taken for the advice (but it is largely copied from my Vulcan heaters instruction manual which I still have (installed in 1967).
