Water is leaking out opening holding a thermobulb on ABG100

Water is leaking out of an opening that holds what looks like a thermo bulb on the water inlet manifold. The probe sits in an open (now that is) tube on the top of the manifold. Is there a fitting or gasket that is missing?

    There are no threads to thread a well into. It is a plain (approx. 1/2" copper tube nipple). Looks like there shoould have been some type of compund that sealed the probe in or something like that that. This is on a Hayward, above grond heater, ABG100. i assume a 100,000 heater. Natural gas fired. The probe is on the water inlet manifold just past the 1-1/2" coupling that joins the heater to the pool intale line. Do you have another thought?

It sounds like you need a new well. If you can get the make and model number off the heater we can quote you the part. Contact us thru www.arrowpools.net.

    Unfortunately, you're only option is to replace the heat exchanger or the heater. That well is part of the heat exchanger itself and can not be replaced. Once it leaks, it is shot. The rest of the metal is also going to be compromised making it not worth fixing anyway. New exchangers are nearly half the price of a whole new heater. If the leak has been going on for some time and damage to other parts from the leak is possible replace the heater. If the leak is recent and not much water has flooded the heater compartment, replace the heat exchanger.

Why after cleaning my thermos with bleach does it no longer holds heat?


The bleach would not have affected the inside of the thermos, but it may have deteriorated the seal of the cap? Try filling it with water, cap it and turn it upside down and leave it for a few hours, see if you get a leak. Or you could submerge it in the sink and look for air bubbles.

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):

After my faberware perculator brews it will reperk after a lil while Is this a themostat problem


Thermo is OK

The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers. I have the parts. send the model # callahanronald@att.net. Good luck

My bosh water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out.


Very possible the thermocoupler is no good. The thermo coupler is that bulb that is in the pilot flame. It controls the main valve It's not expensive and fairly easy to change out.. Make sure you get no dirt in the cspillary tube hole.brass screw end. The bulb must be just in the flame tip when adjusting. Good Luck, Ned-
