Question about Vanguard International Vanguard BY Rheem G91-200LP Gas Water Heater
I removed the door below and see a hole that goes to the gas line....I assume this is where I light it? I turned the nob to pilot and push the red button down and stick a lighter up in the hole and get nothing. Is this the correct spot to light it. There is not Piezo on this unit.
Your thermocouple is bad, that's why it won't stay lit. But you are in the right place. The thermocouple is located right in front of the pilot burner. It generaly pulls out and then you follow the copper tubing back to the valve, unscrew the fitting and it will pull out. Go to your local hardware store and purchase one about the same length and install it back in the same order. Good luck.
