The flame rod could use cleaning with some steel wool. The other thing is the pressure switch on the inducer might not register the air flow.

SOURCE: Burner on new Whirlpool gass water heater will not stay lit

One of the proper ways to light a gas water heater, is to turn the black knob to Pilot, put a match to the end of the pilot light, while holding the match there, push the red reset button down and hold the match & the reset button down for one full minute. Then, release the reset button and turn the black knob to On. This should keep the pilot light on.

SOURCE: gas water heater kenmore model pilot will not stay lite

I have the same problem. Water heater operates on a very simple principle. of thermo-mechanical feed-back and response. In my case, I have a Kenmore Power Miser 6, NG heater with an electronic pilot ignition system. The heater is just over one year old and last month (conveniently just after the 12 month service warranty expired) the pilot light started extinguishing on a very regular basis. I find it interesting that the very problem I am experiencing, is happening to other Kenmore owners (victims). The solution can be found in replacing one of two possible components; the pilot assembly or the gas valve manifold. The price of DIY pilot assembly replacement is approx. $60 . The valve component is significantly higher. Water heaters are designed and built to provide years of trouble-free reliable service. This is the first Kenmore product I have owned. From a customer perspective, with regard to product performance, Sears/Kenmore needs to take a strong look at their supplier quality. Oh, by the way, contacting Sears for remedial relief only managed to frustrate and infuriate me. You see, I am in Quality for a world-class aircraft company. I understand what ethical steps are required to satisfy a valued customer. I plan on ripping out the defective unit this weekend and replacing it with a reliable Home depot special. At least with HD, if the heater fails to perform , I can return it. Hey Sears in Chicago, don't come crying to the consumer when you are looking for the trendy "bail out".

Sw6p suburban won't stay lit. My 6 gallon hot water heat on my 2007 camper won't stay lit, I go and light the pilot light and it lights but I turn the gas up and it blows out please help


the thermal couple is likely bad .
when you release does pilot stay lit or only as long as you hold the button .

if it stays lit then the thermal couple is good
if it only blows out as you turn on the heat then its draft issue.

Why suburban rv water heater won't fire?


Is the propane tank actually full? Is the valve turned on? You might want to try a different regulator on it.

I have a 640dors reliance capacity40 water won't stay hot long(electric)


remove the two covers one high and one low and set the temp higher. This time of year with colder water comming in the house the water heater has to work harder to raise the temp of the incomming water. In the summer the incommong water is much warmer. 40 gal is a small water heater and you will only get about 15 gal of hot water with the ice cold water entering the water heater as you use the hot water. You can get a bigger water heater. even better is to go tankless and a have never ending hot water and save money at the same time.

Get a electric water heater or not?


I'd stay with the boiler, electricity to heat water is very expensive. I would not bother with a timed shutoff for the reasons you said. The water will stay hot for some time.

Hot water heater doesn't work 2 years old


First I would check to be sure your propane tank(s) are not empty and valve is not turned off and that the required gas pressure is being delivered to the unit i.e. pressure line tubing is not kinked or leaking - pressure regulator is operating properly.

Another culprit could be the thermocouple is malfunctioning or is not positioned properly, hence not allowing it to sense the flame.
