I had the same problem, checked the ignition wires and found of them has a loose spade connector, repaired it but did not cure the problem.
when I started the boiler again and started to wiggle the loom of wires coming out of the PCB box, I noticed the relay started to click, so I pulled out the plugs from the PCB and found the Red and the Black wires on the green plug very loose, I think they supply the power to the PCB.
I re-tightned the screws for these 2 wires in the green plug, and that has cured the problem.
I hope this will help. Omar

It sounds more like you have the ignitor wire shorting out on metal and won't allow it to stop trying to light the burner, hold the wire away from any metal and see if it helps, if this isn't the caee your circuit board needs to be replaced,

Atwood water heater g6a8e lights but flame goes out after 5 to 10 seconds. I replaced igniter / thermocouple and it worked for a while but problem is back. So I need to replace circuit board?


Make sure you pull connector off and clean it and contacts on board. Be sure igniter is in flame good too. Does it have the thermal cut off in-line? Its the little resistor looking piece inside the plastic cover. If it does, and still running a few seconds and going out, remove it from the circuit, and connect wire end to where you removed cut out from, thus eliminating it from the circuit, and test it. If that cures it, replace that cut-out, as it is a safety device in case of flame up, it cuts gas off to prevent fire. Just leave it out long enough to test it.

Rheem RTG-64DVN model, brand new unit installed during the weekend. fired up but shout down automatically within about 5 seconds. showed error code 12.


contact your gas company if the error code is "12," indicating that the gas supply was interrupted.

have a good day !! In LP models, the 12 error code may also appear if the LP gas supply has gotten low. To clear the code, replace or refill the LP gas supply.

AO Smith Burner Issues


This system uses an electrical test to make sure that the burner is lit. The flame sensor will either be broken or will be covered in deposits (clean with an emery cloth).

The flame sensor is usually a small metal rod that would be in the direct line of fire of the burner with 1 wire attached.

CAUTION:

The ignitors can be very fragile and are expensive. They are very brittle, do not touch it.

I have atwood GC6aa-9e, will not fire the ignition tries 3 sets


Have you tried temporarily removing the thermal cut-out from the circuit to see if ignites then? It's the little resistor looking thing inside the plastic sleeve/cover that runs to thermostat. Disconnect it from the thermostat terminal, and from wire that is on the other end, and you should be left with a female spade connector at end of that wire. Connect that directly to thermostat terminal where the other part was connected, and try it. If it works, the thermal cut out is no good and needs to be replaced for safety reasons, in case of flame out of control, it blows and shuts gas valve off.

We dont think our cylinder is on we have just moved in and have no hot water


The question is? I'll assume you cylinder is the water heater, right?
On the heater (water) you will find or see the red controls and a sheet metal cover over a hole. Remove the cover and this is where you light the pilot light. Press down on the red dial and turn it to pilot. In that position you will be able to press the red button . Geyt a long match or bbq lighter, then, holding down the red button dow for a minute or so and place a match or lighter into yhe area where the lines go The flame will catch the gas and lite the pilot if yo simply move your glame around. When the flame catch on the pilot, continue holding the button down for sveral minutes until the buld the flame isheating gets hot. Then release the buton and turn the main dial to on. The main burner should fire up. If not, and the pilot goes out, repeat the process. The bulb in the pilot flame is a thermocoupler that shuts all gas off if it doesn't detect a pilot flame, so hold the button down longer. If the pilot goes out when you release the button, The thermocoupler is no good and needs replacing. Good Luck_Ned_

Protherm 100EC boiler not firing up


You likely have a flame sensor problem.

If you can wath the ignition proccess, see if you ever notice a flame. If yes, and it then shuts downm, you have a flame sensor failure, replace the sensor and clean the flame burners and orifices.

If no flame at all, then your ignitor is failing, or you are not gatting gas to the ignitor.

Water heater pilot light


it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
