The yellow is caused because the flame does not have enough oxygen. Per your explanation that is being caused because the exaust is not working. Fix the exaust problem and it probably will begin opperating properly.

SOURCE: atwood rv water heater model G6A-8E heats water to

Normal causes for that would be by-pass valve not in proper position, or defective, allowing cold to mix with hot, or thermostat not touching up against tank properly, or defective. Do you know where that thermostat is?
Look where the black foam cover is, with white letters, below pressure relief valve. One is lettered ECO, other THERM. If you note where the wires go, so as not to mix them up , and pull them off, then peel back the foam cover, you'll see 2 little round discs, that are held against the tank by a small spring. They need to be checked that they are in there properly and are up against the aluminum tank.

If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.

Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine and shuts down after a couple of seconds. I can see the diode in the control board continue to spark after ignition I replaced the igniter.

Burner lights but will not shut off. then pressure


CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE WATER TEMP IS AT THE NORMAL OPERATING RANGE. USUALLY AROUND 120-130 DEGREES. IF IT IS, CHANGE OUT THE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE. IF THE TEMP IS OUT OF SCALE, CHANGE OUT THE ECO AND TSTAT.
