Water heats up then trips off red button


The lit red button may be an indicator that the water temperature inside the water heater flow channel has become too hot. If the outflow facet is adjusted to allow more water outflow (opened more) the water temperature should drop some and therefore with increased water flow, the temperature inside the water heater will also decrease. Or, if there is a manually adjustable outflow valve on the water heater, adjusting it to a more open position would also decrease the internal temperature.

Electrical ignitor on Kenmore Hot Water Heater Not Working


The water heater uses a thermocouple to generate a small voltage from the pilot light. This voltage is used to blink the led and allow the main gas jet to turn on. Either your thermocouple or the wiring from it has failed and needs to be replaced, or realigned if perhaps it moved out of position above the pilot light.

My 3 year old "Smart Water" heater will not turn on. No hot water


It sounds like there is air in the line, so open the gas line just a little for a few short seconds to let some gas out, after that, keep the one red dial on pilot then turn the other to about medium. Light the pilot by depressing the red button, then once the pilot is lite, continue to hold the red button for about 1 minute, Once that is done slowly release the button and then turn the dial that is set to pilot to on position and give it about 1 hour to heat up

I have a 2003 pace arrow motorhome. i can not get any hot water presure. the tank is full and hot. no water flows.


Check by-pass valves at back of tank for wrong positioning. Cold goes in bottom, hot out top and both should be open, and any valves in between should be closed.

Trying to find out if my new hot water heater is shot


The red button you pushed on the hot water heater was probably what is called a "piezo-electric" ignitor. It's normal for it to make a snapping sound and then pop back out. It sounds like you just lost the pilot light.

That being the case, do this:

Turn the gas valve on the hot water tank to the "off" position - it should be silver in color and down low on the tank. You may have to push it down to do this
Leave it off for about two minutes or so
Rotate the valve back on to the "Pilot" position
Hold down the pilot gas valve - it should be red and immediately to the left of the main gas valve.

While holding the pilot gas valve down, push the other red button to the right of the main gas valve - this is the piezo ignitor - push it several times in a row quickly

The gas pilot light should light
You can stop pushing the ignitor now, but continue to hold down the gas pilot valve (the one just left of the main gas valve). Let this valve up after about another 20 seconds or so.

Now rotate the main gas valve to the "on" position

Listen carefully - you should hear the main gas light and feel heat at the water heater flue outlet on top - don't touch it with your hand - you could get burned

If no luck, repeat the process until the heater re-lights

TIP - the instructions for re-lighting the pilot should be written on the heater

Just a potential diagnosis - the thunder clap, if as close as you describe, may have been intense enough to create what is known as a "draft inversion" that may have snuffed out your pilot light. The air pulse came down the flue pipe.

Hot Water Heater in 1991 Pace Arrow RV is not working


If you look on the outside of the RV, you will find the vent for the water heater behind and access door. There usually is a drain plug and valve located as well. Generally they will be tucked away under the kitchen sink area with internal access as well. You will need to find where the valve that shuts the water off to the unit is and turn it on. Most times the water heater is either electric or propane. But sometimes they are only propane. Once your find the access door, you will know where the water heater is. You can also contact Fleetwood who makes the Pace Arrow to see if they have any information on your unit. Usually your unit info or trim number will be located on a little plaque right by the entrance to the RV. You will need this when you contact them. Hope this helps.
