Gas Hot Water Tank Not Producing Hot Water

Pilot will not stay lit

Trying to light your pilot light and it keeps going out when you turn on you gas valve. This is a common problem when your thermo-couple goes out. The thermo-couple sends a small electrical charge to the gas valve to keep its self lit. When the unit calls for heat the pilot flame gets bigger producing more electric and tells the gas valve to open the main gas valve to the burner tubes. The thermo-couple is an easy item to change most of the time. You will need to follow these steps to change out your thermo-couple:

1. Turn off the gas (there is an inline shut off on the supply line before it reaches the gas valve, you need to turn this crossways to the pipe)

2. Locate the thermo-couple it will look like this and be attached to the gas valve

3. Unscrew the thermo-couple from the gas valve

4. Remove the other end of the thermo-couple from the pilot holder

5. Measure or take the old thermo-couple to the hardware or appliance store with you to get the proper length (there are many different lengths of thermo-couples)

6. Reinstall the bulb end at the pilot

7. Reinstall the threaded end on the Gas Valve (make sure not to cross thread the thermo-couple it should start by hand)

8. Turn the gas valve to the pilot position and hold down the red button wait a few seconds then turn off and do again (you will need to do this around 5 times in order to get the gas back up to the pilot light then try and light the pilot)

9. Try to ignite the pilot light.

10. Once you get the pilot light lit you will want to hold down the button for 60 seconds then turn the gas valve to the on position.

Here is an image of a thermo-couple (they will all look similar to this):

Stop water to sweat (solder) water line.

If you have any water, just a trickle, a occasional drip in your waterline near were you need to sweat(solder) the pipe together, your in big trouble if you have no experience in dealing with this problem. As you heat the copper pipe or brass with your torch the water turns to steam actually keeping the temperature of the pipe below the melting point of the solder.

Safety First
Always have a fire extinguisher near by. Remove any materials from behind or around your work area that are easily ignitable, like insulation. In tight areas, use a spray bottle of water to soak any surrounding wood, and if possible use a heat guard, like sheet metal.

What you'll need, Ball valve, pen, (Torch-Mapp Gas), flux, sand-cloth, solder, channel locks and a piece or two of white bread, yes bread, your pipes are hungry.

First thing is to prep everything. Clean your ball valve and pipe end with sand-cloth, make it nice and shiny. Flux ball valve. Remove crust from bread, do not crush or roll bread up into a ball. We want the bread to remain porase to soak up and slow down the flow of water to your joint, water is pulled towards the heat source.

The pipe will have some flex to it depending on if it is secured tightly near by the joint or not, if you can, pull down slightly, not to hard or you may break a good joint down the line, try and get as much of that water out as possible. Make sure all faucets, spickets and shower valves are completely open, if not that will create a finger over the straw effect.

Now heat further back the line to draw the water away from end. Put pieces of bread in pipe, creating a 6" to 10" long sponge, "Bread must not be rolled up or crushed" push it lightly back with finger or pen. Wipe off any bread crumbs from your already cleaned pipe end and flux, put ball valve on, leave valve open. heat ball valve were the copper end has entered. Heat rises, so work from the bottom as you heat the fitting. The faster your able to heat the joint, the more likely you'll be successful. Do not have two people with two torches, you may burn each others face off, not advised. !!!Always be aware of were your lit torch is pointing!!!

Having an extra set of hands in this frustrating time will make things much easier. The trick is to get the water away long enough to sweat the pipe, since you didn't roll the bread up, it will flush out easily when you turn the water back on, Always turn the main valve back on slowly.This is the cheap version of the JET-SWET. Good Luck.

Blazer pocket micro torch will not spark. Gas comes out, but no spark to ignite it.

try to open up the part where the spark would come from. there should be a screw on the bottom or top to open it. This is where the flint would be.

The flint is probably worn down or it broke (you can buy new flints at pretty much any convince store around they are i believe $1-2 for 5 of them.

replace the flint and you will have a spark.

My miller sychrowave tig welder is not blowing sheilding gas when it strikes an arc. The gas is on at the tank. I can hear what sounds like gas or a valve opening when I press the foot control, but my...

Remove the tig torch twist lock from the front of the machine. Step on the pedal as if you were striking an arc and gas should flow out of the twist lock port. If gas comes out of the port, your torch probably has a valve built in (many do) often this is a sleeve on the torch body which you rotate but may not be obvious.
If no gas out of port then its the solenoid or regulator.
You do have the machine in TIG mode and not stick?

Heater won't light

YOU HAVE A BAD THERMOCOUPLE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE FLAME you should see a little match size piece of gold metel connected to a metal tube like then screwed into the gas valve. what happens is when you light the pilot, the gas heats up one end of the thermocouple and the other end changes that heat into microvoltage. the gas valve senses the microvoltage , knows the pilot light is lit then opens the main gas valve. when they go bad they cant send voltage to valve and th valve locks out. you always have to start at off. then depress valve button and turn to pilot and light it. hold button down 3 minutes then turn to full open or main the thermocouples are cheap, call supply houses or service companoies till you find one that will sell you one. unscrew the thermo couple from the valve with a little wrench unwravel the excess tubing , size of a pencil lead in diametor, then the probe part usually slids up through a spring like holder, note position of old sensor before reoming. get end half of new sensor into good pilot flame. reuae old retainers or new ones that come with new t couple.
