The thermostat on the wall is not working-no response to pressing any keys


Hi John:
I'm confused. Thermostats on walls typically control room temperature, and the thermostats for water heater tyemperature are typically set where they can not be easily adjusted. Can you tell us what make and model of heater you have, and what you are trying to do? We'll try to help.

Pilot Orifice


Okay you don't ream pilot injectors hence the 3 inch pilot which is now no good to you nothing to be done with that .

Take you manual to heating / plumbing shop tell them you need a new injector for you pilot block they might be able to sell you just the injector or a new pilot block Most pilot injectors are the same size . Or get you gas fitter back to replace it as the injector was only blocked and needed a clean . in 40 years of gas fitting I have never reamed a injector .

How do I wire around upper heating element until I can get an other one to replace it?


Question posted under marathon electric water heater.
Marathon is 240Volt dual element non-simultaneous water heater.
Non-simultaneous means that upper part of tank has to reach temperature before power is sent to lower thermostat and element. So if upper element is bad, then water heater has no hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html#audibleBW

1) You need to by-pass upper element without by-passing upper thermostat.
2) You should never by-pass upper thermostat because it has ECO-reset protection.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-water-heater-thermostats-work.html

3) Open following link for image of wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Marathon-wiring-700.jpg
4) Take photo of your wiring in case color code is different on your specific model

5) Look at upper thermostat.
Remove yellow wire from terminal 2 on upper thermostat, and cap off temporarily.
Remove red wire from terminal 4 on upper thermostat, and move it to terminal 2 on upper thermostat.
6) For more effective operation, look at lower thermostat.
Remove black wire from lower thermostat terminal 1 and move wire to terminal 2 on lower thermostat.

Call service technician.

I don't see a service manual posted on internet.
Without a service manual showing ohm-readings for testing different parts, you are left guessing which part is problem.
Most water heater manuals today recommend yearly service to catch up on most causes for failure including air in fuel line, dirty or corroded burner parts, defective sensor, loose connection, etc.

Make sure you have power to unit. Check the breaker in your breaker panel and look around unit for a timer or disconnect that may be having problems. I don't know if you are electrically inclined so if you are scared to take off front panel, don't do so. If you believe your breakers and/or any disconnects etc., are on and working, you can remove the screws holding the inspection panel on and press the reset button on the thermostat. There may be insulation covering the thermostat. The thermostat should have a plastic cover on it shielding the live wires while making it possible to press the reset switch. Again, if you are electrically inclined, you can check for power at the thermostat. These are the simple things you can check. If you reset the button, within about 3 to 5 minutes, you should here noise from inside the unit if it is working.

Why does my self cleaning gas water heater make clicking noises?


zdriscoll-

All tank water heaters make some amount noise, clicking and "snapping" sounds, particularly after much of the hot water in tank has been used (like after a long shower) and has been replaced by cold water that is being heated vigorously.

If the noises are accompanied by poor or erratic performance, or obviously if something malfunctions, you may require the services of a repair connection.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
