You need to check the electric elements they are under removable covers on the front of the heater and check the fuse/breaker. May need to replace upper and lower elelments

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.

Bradford-white water heater wont heat water.the blower motor hums but wont blow.also,pilot light wont light,is this just a safety feature?


Water heater is not identified and gas valve is not known.
Review options below:

1) Add a comment and describe what gas control valve is on the water heater, and model number from label on side of unit. Include what you have tried so far.

2) Try unplugging water heater and see if water heater resets.
Disconnect blower from gas valve, then plug blower in to see it it operates.
This will eliminate or include blower as suspect.

3) Open following link to download service and product manuals to help troubleshoot exact model.

We have a bradford defender model # MI403S6FBN7. How do we reset it. lost manual


Water heaters are a huge field of knowledge. Problem is not 100% clear.
There is a resettable thermal switch on the combustion door. This switch is round and has two wires that come from gas control valve. Thermal switch trips when combustion parts have not been cleaned and they cause overheated condition, or sensor reads temperatures above 180, or thermal switch has gone bad, or gas control has gone bad.

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


There really is no way to do this. If you put a cap you will restrict the air flow which will cause you to have problems with the water heater, same thing if you where to put screen on it. You can try enlarging the pipe to a 3 inch and see if that works. But 15 years in the trade nothing has been made to reduce the noise
