Question about Water Heaters
Th piezo electric pilot clicks and sparks, but won't light. the burner won't light,we checked for gas leaks, and there are none. What could have been installed improperly?
All new tank-type gas water heaters for the home are designed with Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant systems. It sounds like the unit has shut down because of a venting problem. If it is a Rheem or Ruud (General Electric for Home Depot) you have to reploace the heater. Other brands alow for resetting this safety device. Don't take chances with gas if you are not absolutely sure of what you are doing - have a professional licensed plumber check out the problem.
