Question about Atwood White Rodgers Gas Valve 93844
Blowing cold air.Where is the pilot and how to turn it on to lite the gas
There are two types of Gas Fired Water heaters, depending on the vintage, Older style ones that had a "Pilot" flame that burned gas (a small amount) all of the time, and had a "Button" that had to be pressed as the pilot was warming up the safety lockout, as it was being re-lit, -OR- the more efficient, but more complicated, GLOW START , that turned a piece of tungsten / nichrome red hot to start the main burner. CHECK FOR THE SMELL OF GAS FIRST.... there should never be any, IF THERE IS , STOP (Don't turn on or OFF any other Lights, in the house, open a window to the area, and call your gas company from the Neighbour's house if it is really odorous).
IF the hot water tank is the newer type, you need to get a certified gas repair person there to fix it, because it is GAS, there are a few things to verify before any repairs are done.
IF it is an older model there are instructions ususally on the side, and a trap door to light the pilot where the main feed goes under the tank after the regulator / thermostat.
You will need a long match, but if you have never done it before , check with your gas company first.
