How change robertshaw 110-32f


Turn off gas to the heater close water supply drain the water out of heater.Remove pilot tube assembly remove thermocouple/or thermopile assembly disconnect gas at the union and remove from valve. Use wrench that fits the hex shaped nut that holds the aquastat and water heater in the tapping. Usually the wrench size is 3/4" or 7/8" depending on the unit.

Put pipe dope on the male thread of the valve and keep it off the aquastat bulb, and rethread into the tapping.

Replace the ilot assembly being sure it was not damaged when it was remover if it was damaged replace it. replace the thermocouple/powerpile assembly replace the gas piping from the valve being sure to use pipe dope on the fittings and tighten them enough so they do not leak. Do not use teflon tape because it could get into the gas valve and cause problems.Test the gas piping for leaking do a tight test on the meter if possible or test with testing fluid and look for bubbles or use a gas leak detector that sniffs for gas and beeps when it detects a leak

Fill the water heater up with cold water and check to be sure there are no leaks at the thread where the valve is threaded into the tapping. Open a hot water faucet and be sure the heater is full of water.

Light the pilot and turn the gas on set to the temp that is best suited to you..

How to Change the Gas Valve and Thermostat on a Hot Water Heater


<p>If you are having<b> trouble with the temperatures</b> of your <b>gas hot water heater</b> fluctuating too much, or after <b>changing the thermocouple</b> of your gas <b>hot water heater</b> then you may need to change the complete <b>gas valve and thermostat assembly</b>. Also if you have changed the <b>thermocouple</b> and the pilot still will not stay lit, then the gas valve could be bad or the <b>ECO (Emergency Cutout)</b> may have activated and is open. This is a onetime device and cannot be replaced.<br /> <p><br /> <p>These instructions are for the older style <b>gas valve and thermostat combination</b>. These commonly have a large red knob that adjusts the temperature of the water. Also note that the burner tube nut for <b>natural gas</b> is right hand thread, but if you have <b>LP or propane gas</b> the burner tube nut is left hand thread.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The newer <b>gas valve thermostat combinations</b> that have come out recently are similar, but they have a well in the tank that the sensor slides into. The assembly is held fast with a set screw. With this type of <b>gas valve and thermostat unit </b>the tank does not need to be drained, but most of the rest of the change out is similar.<br /><br />To change a <b>gas hot water heater thermostat</b> you will need to first buy a new gas valve for your <b>hot water heater</b>. The <b>gas valve</b> and the <b>thermostat</b> are integrated into one unit.<br /><br />To <b>replace the thermostat on a gas hot water heater</b> you must follow these procedures....<br /><br />1.

Get a <b>pump pliers</b> or a<b> wrench</b> in behind the gas valve and turn the whole assembly CCW to remove it from the tank.<br /><br />4. After applying pipe dope or tape to the new gas valve threads, turn the new gas valve into the tank by turning in a CW direction. Be careful not to damage the small wires to the <b>ECO</b>. They are the little red wires on the back. If you break them the assembly is irreparably damaged.<br /><br />5.

Gas Control Valve replacing!


Shut off the water and gas to the heater. Drain the heater. Disassemble the gas line to the heater starting at the Union and working to the gas control. Disconnect thermocouple, burner and pilot tunes from the bottom of the old gas control. The old control will screw out of the front of the heater. Grab the entire housing of the control and twist counterclockwise to remove. Perform new gas control install and connections in reverse. Remember to apply at least 4 wraps of Teflon tape on all threads before assembly. (Teflon paste may be used) Do NOT put any sealant on the thermocouple,burner tube or pilot tube connections (these are compression connections, make them fairly snug.) upon completion, fill heater, turn gas back on relite and check for water or gas leaks

Water heater leaking from top


Presumably you are referring to a water leak - not gas. The pooled water could be condensate from a "sweating" pipe but, depending upon the age of the heater, it may be time to replace it

Sweeting from top of heater


Water on top of gas heater can be caused by poor venting, or inadequate combustion.
Make sure water is not coming up from under tank top, indicating tank leak requiring tank replacement.
Have a plumber look at problem to make sure home is not filling with deadly, odorless CO gas.
Inspect pipes that they are not corroded and covered with condensate.
Check that roof cap is in place.
Let heater fire and burn for a few moments so the fire is going good, and then light match just outside the draft hood on top of heater. Blow out match and see if smoke draws immediately into vent and upward.

I have a reliance 501 propane gas water heater how do i change a thermostate


Hi,

To change a gas hot water heater thermostat you will need to first buy a new gas valve for your hot water heater. The gas vaive and the thermostat are integrated into one unit.

To replace the thermostat on a gas hot water heater you must follow these procedures....

1. Turn off the incoming water and drain the water heater.

2. remove the pilot tube, the burner gas tube and the thermocouple from the gas valve. Turn off the gas line and remove from the gas valve.

3. get a pump pliers or a wrench in behind the gas valve and turn the whole assembly CCW to remove it from the tank.

4. After appliying pipe dope or tape to the new gas valve threads, turn the new gas valve into the tank by turning in a CW direction. Be careful not to damage the small wires to the ECO. They are the little red wires on the back. If you break them the assembly is irreparably damaged.

5. reinstall the gas line, thermocouple, burner tube, and the pilot tube to the gas valve.

6. Fill tank with water. Make sure to open a hot water faucet and purge all air from the tank.

7. Check for leaks where the gas line hooks up with soapy water.

8. Relight pilot light and check operation.

9. Set the new temperature setting to a medium setting and then adjust the temperature to your likeing from there and adequate time for heating completely.

How do I drain the tank for maintainence?


Turn the gas valve to pilot and leave it there. This way the pilot will stay on but it wont try to heat and you dont have to re light the pilot. Turn off the water supply valve to the heater. Open the drain valve at the bottom of the heater and hold the lever open on the pop off valve towards the top of the tank. This will allow air into the tank and it will drain faster. If there is not a floor drain nearby you can hook a garden hose to the drain valve. When you are finished do not turn the gas valve back on until the heater is full of water. Open sink faucets when filling tank with water to avoid excess pressure.

The water pipes that carry the water throughout the house makes a loud humming noise every three seconds


Hi, it says you are having problems with the relief valve, I am not sure what it is, but they will blow water if the water temperature exceeds its rating and water pressure. Also, says you have a humming every 3 seconds or so in the pipes? This sounds like a classic case of hard water deposits have formed up around the control valve probe that's inserted into the water. Also if the pipes are galvanized and not copper, they will rust up the walls of the pipes over time with deposits also closing of the amount of room for the water to get through. It would really help to know the age of your home and if the water heater is gas or electric? When this happens, you will hear a popping noise at the water heater and you will get air in the pipes that will cause all sorts of noise, humming, growling, the pipes will rattle and with the restricted lines and build up of sediment, the pressure relief valve will let loose to relieve the pressure. If you are having any signs of low and uneven pressures and hot and cold problems, depending on the age of this water heater, you will need to replace it.If it is a gas heater, you will have a round plastic drain knob located at the bottom of the heater. You can turn it ccw all the way open and let the water coming into it from the fill valve on top flush out as much of the sediment as you can. When you have done this, close the valve off to fill it up again and repeat the draining or flushing process. This will also remove any air trapped in the lines. Important! When you are filling the heater if you had shut the fill valve off on top, open the water valve and on the relief valve, pull the lever up to lock it open as this lets all air from the lines out of the heater and the water pipes. If this relief valve is blowing a lot, replace it. Just turn the water valve off on top and use a pipe wrench to turn it ccw to remove it. Look for sediment on the rod to see how much has build up on it. This valve is around $25 and will be cheaper to replace then the heater. The size is 3/4". Temperature range for it to open will be stamped on the old valve. This you can get at any hardware store such as Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace and so on. Pick up a small tub of pipe dope to coat the treads when installing and once it is in, turn water on and raise the lever up as you turn water back on to fill the tank to remove the air. This should solve this problem. Please keep me posted on this and your progress and if you will tell me the age of your home and if its a gas or electric heater this will be helpful if the instructions I have given you do not solve this problem. I do believe it is just trapped air and a faulty pressure relief valve at this point. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind and please keep me posted as I will check on you as I store your information in my files to look in on at any time I may need.
Sincerely,

Water Heater Replacement


1) After shutting off the water and gas or power supply to the tank, connect a hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the tank, open the valve, and run it to a nearby drain or outdoors. Use two wrenches to unscrew the inlet and outlet fittings from the top of the tank. 2) For a gas water heater, shut off the gas inlet valve and use two wrenches to disconnect the union or flare fitting between the gas supply pipe and the inlet valve. Also remove the flue hat that expels gasses into the flue at the top of the tank. 3) After removing the old unit, set the new one in place with the controls and burner accessible. Allow at least 6 inches of clearance around its perimeter, and keep it away from flammable materials. Use a level to check it for plumb; shim the base with pieces of asphalt shingles or plastic wedges. 4) Wrap the threads of the heat trap fittings with pipe-wrap tape, and screw the fittings into the water heater (blue into the cold water inlet and red into the hotwater outlet). Be sure the arrows marked on the fittings point in the direction of water flow. 5) Install new flexible connectors on the water inlet and outlet pipes. If there is no shutoff valve on the cold water side, install one before connecting the water heater. After all connections are complete, open the shutoff valve to fill the tank. While it is filling, open several hot water faucets in the house to bleed off air in the pipes. 6) Assemble the gas pipes as shown. Spread pipe dope on the threads, and screw together the parts, tightening them with one pipe wrench on the pipe and another on the fitting. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for connecting the unit with gas supply tubing. After turning on the gas, test all connections by brushing soapy water on them and watching for bubbles.
