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

Replace your orfices. You probably have #40 and you will need #55. Write down the Model number, and any information from your regulator. A plumbing/heating parts supplier will help you. You may need a new regulator also.

Wiring diagram on whirlpool gas water heater


Whirlpool is AO Smith tank-type heater.
Year, model, type of heater not known.
So add a comment and then expert can look up the manual.

You probably have power vent, or dampered water heater, otherwise the only wiring would be for thermopile, thermal reset, and igniter.
Power vent, or dampered, of flow control water heaters plug into outlet, and wires from gas control run to the various components.
Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:

Don't forget to add comment and include model number that shows on label located side of tank.

I have an old whirlpool gas water heater and the pilot will not stay lit.


Suspects include bad thermocouple, thermocouple slipped down and not in pilot flame, dirty combustion parts and pilot tube, dirty air intake, backdraft caused by other vent fans pulling air down water heater vent, water dripping down vent because of poor venting, air in gas line, low gas pressure, bad gas control valve, hot attic environment, tight house not allowing enough air:

Replace thermocouple:
