First, I took the entire burner assembly out (shut off pilot and shut off gas supply first, disconnect supply lines to regulator).
Second, I removed the plastic screens at the base of the heater and scrubbed the dust off of them with soap and water (dusty storage area which houses the furnace, the water tank and the cat litter box) and allowed them to dry.
Third, I rigged up a piece of 12" long 1/2" pvc with a 90 degree elbow to my shop vac. Basically just duct tape it and create a seal to the vacuum's hose.
Fourth, buy a baby bottle brush. Gently brush the filter beneath the tank (I needed a light in order to see for this project as well) and inside the tank.
Now, put the vacuum on "discharge" and blow the dust down through
the filter in the bottom of the tank (this is where the 90 degree elbow comes in handy). Put on a mask of some type if dust bothers you - I generated quite a bit. Switch around the hose and put it on "vacuum" mode and **** up all of the dust that you've created, both in the base of the tank and beneath the tank.
I also vacummed the entire area around the tank and have now been
cleaning the screens on a weekly basis. Yes, I know it stinks but
it saved me a service call. Will the tank fail in the future? From what I've read, probably. However, I like to think that the money I save by taking preventative measures will be a deposit on my Bradford White unit when I put it in or have it installed
Thanks for contacting Fixya
