If it is a standard gas heater and has a spark ignitor hanging in the side of the gas control of is probably not the ignitor. Usually that is the spark tip inside the chamber. Clean it with emery cloth and spark should restore. If gas control has ignitor built in you will have to replace the control. Try cleaning the spark tip first. If you have a power vent you have to pull the burner out of the heater and replace the entire flame sensor/ignitor assembly.

SOURCE: I need the basics for replacing a thermostat on a water heater...Bradford/White brand, model M250S6DS2 50 Gal, 4500 watt per element 240 voltage 50/60 hz. It keeps over heating even at lowest setting

Copy following link for replacing thermostat.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
Suggest you might also want to test the elements while power is turned off, just in case the problem is element shorted to ground across metal tank to ground wire.

At least you know the 240volt power to water heater and the circuit breaker are good.

How do I light my hot water heater?


It is pretty easy - make sure gas valve is open, change control know to pilot. Press the ignitor a few times and once pilot lights up switch control to warm or hot position.

Depends on source of leak: If gas water heater is leaking from bottom, then heater must be replaced.

Add a comment and describe type of water heater, and what you discover about source of leak.

I have a Bradford White water heater (model# MITW50L6LN10) that started making noise yesterday. Tonight when the family got home we started a bath for the kids and surprise surprise no hot water left in...


Probably cheaper to fix existing water heater.
The problem might be the power vent, or the power vent might be short cycling because the gas control valve is bad, or vacuum switch has gone bad.
Call Bradford White and get their recommendation for your specific model.

Bradford White is very good brand of water heater
Rheem, Richmond, GE are good.
I prefer the AO Smith, American, State, Reliance, Craftmaster. Kenmore, Whirlpool brand since air intake screen is located on bottom of unit and can be inspected and cleaned without removing burner.

2) if you have electric water heater, and too much hot water, then thermostat may be bad, or element is shorted and needs replacement. Test elements first, and if they're ok then replace both thermostats.

Hello we have Bradford hot water tank model #MI65R6DS13. Our problem, I keep having to press the tanks reset switch for us to get hot water. At the same time after I press the reset switch we have hot...


No the top thermostat is the first place I would start to replace. They run about 14.00 more than likely it isn't controling right. Turn power supply to water heater off and replace thermostat.

If you was getting scalding hot and then turning cold without tripping the thermostat it would be the top element working and the bottom one bad.
Bottom element good it will give you luke warm water for a while then gradually turn cold because it's heating the bottom of the tank.

Hope this will help you out.

Bradford White hot water heater - burner lights only 30 seconds


The slightly warm water makes me think of a thermostat problem. The fact that the heater is 10 years old I wonder how hard your water is. Calcium build up kills water heaters. But the yellow flame you mention could be the results of dirty orfices. May want to have a Pro look at that.

Noisy water heater blower


It may just need a new pump coupling. Fairly inexpensive. I don't think you need to replace the whole burner.
