If the thermocoupler is defective the gas to everything is shut off. The coupler is the bulb that sits ib the pilot flame If it doesn't heat up it will sense no pilot and shut the gas off. They don't cost much and are easy to change. Good Luck, Ned

The ECO is short for emergency cut off.
The ECO is either tripped or it went bad. You may be able to reset it or you will have to contact a rep the sells your heater to get a new part. Some are resetable and some are not... not sure which you may have. The reset ones will have a little red button to push in the center.
The next rpoblem is to figure why the ECO went or tripprd in the first place. There is probably a reason or a cause. When you refire it make surte you donot have flame roll out and proper venting. Also make sure the the thermostat works and is not letting it get too hot.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!

Hi, first check and try and reset the breaker feeding the water heater. That should be a two pole breaker. The next thing to check is the red safety button on the top thermostat control. It is under the top access panel of the heater, along with a good amount of insulation. Push the red button to reset the safety switch. If these do not remedy your situation, then you will need someone on site to check the water heater in more detail.
