Why the pilot light on my gas water heater won't light?


  • Bad gas valve
    • More expensive of fix
25422352-di2jpn2pb5nzkrgf0hzbmyq5-4-0.jpg

  • Bad thermocouple
    • Less expensive of fix, try this first
    • It sits in the pilot burner assembly, right next to pilot flame. It senses the heat on the tip of the thermocouple and then generates just enough electricity to operate the heaters gas valve. It makes just under 1 volt, these are called MiliVolts.

  • No fuel?
    • Is there a shut off valve, did someone turn it off?

Valve goes to vacation mode


Am I right to assume that you have an intelligent gas valve? If so, google 'Intellivent Gas Valve error codes'. You will find all of the error codes and what to do to fix it.

Drain wont stop leaking


1) Copy following link for fixing drain valve on 38 gallon gas water heater with plastic drain valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-drain-valve.html

2) According to serial number, your GE (Rheem) water heater was made in 3rd month of 2007. No service manuals are available from Rheem. Warranty period is probably 6 year. Unit appears to have reliable White Rodgers gas control valve.

Whirlpool 6th sense natural gas water heater 50 gal. Bought brand new today. Upon installation, discover low gas pressure running to unit. Turned out that gas line had under ground leak so had to turn...


1) Be careful before you Call Whirlpool 1-877-817-6750.
Be careful what you report so not to void warranty because installation protocol was not followed. Whirlpool will cover gas control valve, and possibly the installation of valve which takes about 15 minutes and does not require emptying water heater.
************So make sure you report installation that is consistent with installation shown in manual.

2) Whirlpool will also answer this same question later today with invitation to contact them.

3) Copy following link to identify gas control valve, and download service manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

4) If dirt or debris gets into gas control valve, it will cause it not to work. Such as broken gas line. Debris can enter gas line.
Or if too much pipe dope was used on gas connection, or stray teflon tape got into line and then into valve, or end of pipe got dirty during installation, and then dirt got into gas control.
Take off gas line and use vacuum cleaner to see if something can be removed by suction. Clean up the joints.

5) It appears you have ordinary Honeywell gas control valve on atmospheric vented water heater with 9 year parts-labor warranty..
Unknown error code, so it is hard to look up solution in service manual.
Add a comment if you want expert to look up error code in service manual.

Thank you for providing clear description of product:
Your water heater has intellivent gas control thermostat.
There are always problems with water heaters. It is a huge field.

1) Open following link for AO Smith service manuals.
I do not see service manual specifically for the GP series.

2) Open following link to identify gas valve and download typical service manual:
Some AO smith power vent models have intellivent gas valve, and some have smart valve gas vent. Older models might have knob-type gas valve.

Noise in the water heater valve. How do I fix it?


Valve is not identified.
Cold water shut-off valve, TP valve, check valve, mixing valve, drain valve are the usual suspects associated with electric water heater.
Gas water heater has additional valves: gas shut off valve and gas control valve thermostat.
Check valve, TP valve and mixing valve probably need replacement.
If drain valve is leaking, put garden hose cap over end.
Shut off valve probably has a bit of blockage, or is not completely open. Try closing and then opening shut-off valve all the way, and if problem persists, replace or clean out valve.

What kind of noise? Are you sure the noise is from a valve or is it inside the tank caused by sediment build-up inside of tank?

Had the unit for seven years, it started to leak water around the water valve. Bosch aqua Star 125x ng


You have to fix this leak around the water valve before
it causes damage to your equipment.
1. Close the water supply valve going to your tankless
water heater.
2. Unplug or close the natural gas valve.
3. Now, you can work fixing the leak.
4. Once completed, you can proceed to open the
natural gas valve as well as the water supply valve.
5. Then, have it tested to get it done.

On demand water heater won't stay lit


It's the gas valve. This pretty common. The thermocouple produces a small amount of current from the heat and this current holds the safety valve open inside the gas valve. Sometimes the safety valve gets sticky and your symptoms describe it exactly. People are always frustrated by the time it is certain to be the valve. You need to replace the valve. No one is allowed to fix a gas valve - liability - gas etc. Replace the gas valve and your problem will be solved. I am a master plumber/gasfitter and I am confident that this will solve the problem. Been there - done that.

Yes that is going to be the contoll valve on that heater. You can probley fix it very easy with the right part. You will need to locate a plumbing supply over there in the UK. Give them the make and model number and tell them you need a unitroll gas valve for it.
