Turn off LP tank valve. let sit for 5-10 minutes, then slowly open LP tank valve. opening the valve too quickly cause a ck valve to close. It's a safty in the event of excessive gas escape like a damaged regulator or hose. just barely crack it open and let the system balance. do not open suddenly.
Good Luck

Igniter on gas water heater only sparks once


First pull the ignitor wire off the ignition module...hold a screwdriver 1/8 to 1/4 inch away from the electrode pin on the module then turn the unit on to see if it sparks differently than what you described before you replace the ignitor.

I have an Atwood waterheater model # G6A-8E. I am having issues with no spark from the ignitor , I have used a long stem lighter to light the burner. It lights and burns well for a couple second seconds...


When you turn it on and hear the ignitor clicking, test for 12 volts at power wire to gas valve. If your not getting 12 VDC to gas valve when ignitor is sparking, replace module.

The electronic ignition on a gas water heater will not heat up and glow red to ignite the gas to heat the water atwood r/v water heater


You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

Time to get a new tank. The life expectancy is between 10-15 years. You are probably spending more in natural gas to heat than the tank is worth.

New gas water heater pilot light will not ignite


Hi .. if this is a brand new heater, then you probably need to have the gas line bled. This means getting all the air out of the gas line feeding the burner. This can be done by constantly trying to light the burner or poilot . or it can be bled down by a HVAC tech.

Cannot light


some times the wire for the ignitor will get burned inside the chamber, if this happens you will not get a spark and will need a tech, but turn the gas valve to the piliot position hold down the button on the gas valve while clicking the electric ignitor button, look thru the site glass towards the left side of the burner assembly while doing this, if there is no spark it will have to be taken apart and replace the spark ignitor, not a big job you just have to make sure the seal on the burner cover doesn't tear or get damaged

Honeywell water heater. It's about 2 1/2 years old. I went to press the red button because the water was cold and it never got hot. The pilot is completely off and it won't go on after I press the red...


turn the gas valve button to piliot position, push it down and hold it, click the ignitor to light it... look thru the site glass to see the spark all at the same time, if it lights hold the button on the gas valve down for 30 seconds, let it up if it doesn't stay lit you need either a thermo coupling or a gas valve thermo coupling would be the first choice, the is also a filter around the bottom of th tank near the floor it needs to be clean that is the only soirce of air to run the heater
