I do not have specific answer.

Open following links to identify product, download service guide and download manual for the different model numbers, plus parts list and other resources:

This water heater has remote switch, which is the switch you are talking about. It also has limit switch and ECO (energy cut-off switch)

Hot water tap creates an annoying noise in the mh. The noise is coming from the Atwood hot water heater. (2007 Coachmen Mirada).


Like a buzzing noise? Check valve where water lines connect at back will make a buzzing noise, if you only hear it when running hot water and not when running cold. Remove and replace it after shutting water off, and draining tank down. Be sure to shut off any hydro to electric element prior to draining.You can buy a replacement check valve, or just put a short 1/2" pipe nipple in there instead and reconnect your line, and refill it. noise should be gone .

The two switches control the water heater either in the gas or electric mode. The switch with the lights would be for the gas operation, and the switch without lights would be for the electric mode. Prior to operating either switch, make sure the water tank is full of water. Turn your hot water tap on, if water comes out, tank is full. Connect trailer to 110 Volt source, turn circuit breakers on, Place switch without lights to on position. If water does not heat in 45 minutes, Install new heat proble. The gas mode should be repaired by someone that is familiar with that system. Atwood can provide you with a local service center.

When gas switch on an atwood water heater is turned on, the electric switch blinked and unit doesn't light


It usually only lights when starting up on propane, or if it didn't ignite for one reason or another. Usually light off indicates working o.k. Are you sure the electric element hasn't been on and water is heated already? Carefully open pressure relief valve slightly and see if water is hot or cold.
