Hi,
The ignitor has gone bad... you will need to find a replacement ignitor and change it..they are not had to change but are very fragile to handle.
That will get you working again...

I have no hot water, how do I change the filter in a Bock Water Heater 32E 32 gal oil-fired hot water heater ?


Unfortunately, looking at the manual for the water heater, the filter is a separate item. And the recommended Delavan line filter page just shows a picture and part numbers of the item, not how to remove it.
I suspect it works in such a way that you hold the end nut portion and turn the large nut portion with open end wrenches. You will need the internal filter replacement and possibly new seals, probably in a kit.

Line Filter

You'll want to turn off the power to the oil pump so you don't make a large mess.

What is the purpose of the magnesium rod inside the water heater (bock)


These anode rods, sometimes made from aluminum, prevent corrosion. The rod emits ions that line the tank and help prevent corrosion. The rod isn't solid magnesium or aluminum; it has an iron core. If your hot water smells of sulfur (rotten eggs), the anode rod has gone bad or there is a presence of hydrogen sulfur gas that is overwhelming the rod. Usually replacing the rod will stop the odor, but sometimes chlorination of the tank is necessary.

Hi,
This has to be one of two problems....
Either the dip tube is not in place properly or the hot and cold are reversed....
That is the ONLY way that you can be having that problem....

Make sure you have another person look at the heater...
Take off the piping on both the hot and cold lines and VERIFY that the dip tube is in place in the cold side, and that there is NO dip tube in the hot side....then also that the pipes are connected correctly...

The nozzle size and gap completely are designed to each burner, if the bock water heater had a becket burner than you would be okay with the gap, if not then what I would do is check the manufactures manual for proper nozzles and gaps of electrode assembly

How do i clean out my system for my oil hot water heater? some how we ran out of oil, i guess we used way too much oil, it usually lasts until november but went out mid sept, i had oil delivered and now it...


It sounds to me like you probably have a clogged oil nozzle. Of course I'm am assuming that you bleed all the air out of the oil lines that run both to the hot water tank and the heating appliance. If you have solid flow at the water heater pump, and the unit still does not ignite, it is most likely the nozzle. Hope this helps
