SOURCE: Whirlpool energy smart water heater

Two flashes means that the high limit temperature has been reached. Once this happens, the temperature control system will shut off. Make sure that all element access doors are in place. Push the "Push to Reset" button to restart the temperature control system. The water heater will self test for ten minutes before it will start to heat. If you get the 2 flashes again then you may need to replace one or both elements. Each element should measure 5-25 ohms.

The "thermostat" is the knob marked "Temperature Control". Make sure that the operating mode is set to 1,2 or 3.

SOURCE: No hot water

The code # 11 is a code that warns of "no ignition" and the causes of this error code are too many to list. I would suggest that a qualified tech. perform a diagnostic test and repair.

This is not a task for the "do it yourselfer"

SOURCE: Natural gas hot water heater not stying lit

Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

SOURCE: I have whirlpool gas water heater sg1j5040t3nov.

Called whirlpool and explained the problem. They said I need to replace that upper sensor and so they sent me a part in the mail which cost roughly $25. (usd) not including the overnight shipping which is around another $25 or so. This picture is what I received in the mail. Comes with directions of installment. _273.jpg

I have a valliant atmo gas water heater and no hot water just the red bulb flashing


Gas (natural or propane) water heaters require electrical power to make the igniter work. The most common source is two (2) D batteries. When the batteries become weak an visual alarm will be visible, such as a red blinking light. Try installing new batteries.

Electrical ignitor on Kenmore Hot Water Heater Not Working


The water heater uses a thermocouple to generate a small voltage from the pilot light. This voltage is used to blink the led and allow the main gas jet to turn on. Either your thermocouple or the wiring from it has failed and needs to be replaced, or realigned if perhaps it moved out of position above the pilot light.

7 flashes: Gas control valve might be bad.
4 flashes: FV overheat, clean air intake.
Soot indicates clogged air intake slowed combustion venting possibly causing overheating and lockout. Clean air intake screen located on bottom of unit.

Lowe's hot water heater pilot light will not stay


Hi,

If it is one of the new ones with the fancy gas control and the blinking light... does the light blink?? or not??
If it is blinking then the pilot should stay lit...
If it will not blink then the sensor is bad or not in the right place...

Or... the gas control is bad... this is happening alot...

If it is brand new... take it back...
