If the water heater is leaking you have a rusted tank and it needs to be replaced. Turn off the water till it can be replaced. No fix for a rusted tank has to be replaced.

You have a water leak coming out of side of tank?
Water heater must be replaced. It is rusted, and could rupture.

I have a Jayco pop up with an Atwood water heater, serial # 37C14U-5. My problem is two-fold. The water heater pilot doesn't stay lit after initial run, and propane is leaking out of the vent on the...


Leaking propane is red flag #1 and fire hazard.
Immediately update your insurance and then turn off gas.
If pilot is not staying lit, then gas leak can be cause of pilot problem since pressure on the line is reduced.
Other causes include bad gas control valve, air in the gas line, bad thermocouple, burner parts need cleaning, or all the above.
After fixing leak, replace thermocouple, clean combustion chamber and burner parts, and bleed gas line to remove air.

Well you might have a pinhole leak than periodically puts out pilot light. Or you might have a bad thermocouple. Thermocouple is inexpensive and easy replacement.

When water heater is off a strong gas odor is present. checked by closing or shutting valve control assembly to off positon, where no gas ordor is present.


Hello,
You may have a leaking gas valve control. Make up a squirt bottle of soapy water (use dishwasher soap and water) and spray the On-Off-Pilot knob for leaks, as well as the pilot button. Look for bubbles forming. Also check all the gas line fittings and connectors hooked up to the water heater for leaks. If you are smelling gas, do not attempt to relight the water heater. Close the shut-off valve on the gas line and see if the gas smell goes away. If it does, you may have to replace your gas valve. Depending on the age and condition of your water heater, it may be more cost effective to replace the control or buy a new water heater. Reliance is a common brand sold at stores like Lowe's. Typically, parts like your gas valve will usually only have a 1 year warranty. Check the manufacturer decal on the tank to see what their actual warranty period is. If you find a leak on the gas line itself, you will have to turn the gas off at the natural gas meter before disassembling the line to fix it. Use a soft setting teflon based pipe dope for the pipe threads. If you are uncomfortable doing the work yourself or don't know how to proceed, then call your local gas supplier for help. Douglas

I have a Rheem glas fury model 22-40 gas water - leaking


Dear Hank McNeal; I have successfully used a "boiler plug" to seal a water heater tank leak in 2007. It was a 100 gallon electric commercial hotel unit. To this day it's still in use. It depends where the leak is located....Predrilling the leak is necessary to be sure the plug will ernguage it's threads into good material... Start as small as possible, then use the best suited plug. they come in an assortment of sizes. rheem-glas-fury-model-22-40-gas-water-qbzdprdp3yetvbzozs4dsujq-4-0.jpg
