WATER HEATER GOES OUT OVER NIGHT


you either have a back draft blowing out the pilot light, or a bad thermal coupling. if coupling is bad it will shut down the gas flow therefore shutting off pilot light. its a safety measure to stop the gas flow if pilot goes out. replace thermal coupling, that may do it. good-day ! but shut off gas first !

Pilot won't stay lit, replaced thermalcouple but


I would remove pilot light assembly and clean orifice and blow out gas line to pilot. Check to see that thermocouple is centered in pilot flame. It is possiblethat your gas valve is bad but it is also possible that you got a defective thermocouple. I would change the thermocouple again as they are much less expensive then the gas valves. The next time when you are sure you have the thernocouple mounted as close to the center of the pilot flame hold the pilot button down for several mins. If none of this works then you may have to change your gas valve.Thank you.

Pilot is not heating thermalcoupler


You may have a dirty pilot orifice. Try this. Turn off the pilot by turning the control knob to off. Remove the front panel to get access to the pilot orifice. Use a can of compressed air with attached straw (the same stuff you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the pilot orifice, which is inside the pilot assembly where the pilot flame burns. Blow it out from the top and from the sides through the air holes. Then relight the pilot and see if that improves the flame size and color (blue) to heat the thermocouple. Douglas

WE HAVE CHANGED THE THERMOSTATS BOTH OF THEM, WE HAVE CHANGED BOTH ELEMENTS AND THE WATER STILL DOENT GET HOT ENOUGH. WE HAVE TURNED UP BOTH THERMOSTATS AND STILL NOT HOT ENOUGH. WHEN YOUR RUNNING THE HOT...


WE THOUGHT WE NEEDED ANOTHER THERMOSTAR, BUT WHEN WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE PART THE EMPLOYEE ASKED WHAT WAS THE TROUBLE. WE EXPLAINED, HE SAID YOU DEFINATLY DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR TANK AND ASKED IF WE HAD A SINGLE HANDLED FAUCET WITHIN THE HOUSE. NO WE DONT. HE SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE WATER IS MIXING WITH THE COLD WATER THATS THE REASON FOR THE WARM--COLD--WARM WATER. COME TO FIND OUT SINCE WE ARE REMODLING THE BATHROOM, WE HAD BOTH THE HOT AND COLD WATER TURNED ON IN THE SHOWER--BUT WERE PLUGGED OFF AT THE SHOWER HEAD AND THE FAUCET UNTIL THE TILE IS INSTALLED. SOOO ALL MY HUSBAND HAD TO DO WAS TURN OFF THE WATER IN THE SHOWER. NOW WE HAVE PLENTY OF HOT WATER, NO WARM COLD. YEA!!!

WATER IS NOT HOT


Check the thermastat, located in removable panel. warning dont set above 120- 130. If not the case it could be a bad heating coil. Easy to change in electric just googl a how to sitr. If your not Real Handy with Your Handa I would recomend calling a plumber to check heating element, Could be cheaper to replace
