I doubt that you will be able to obtain one. Those sorts of parts just aren't available.

Suburban SW6DE Gas Solenoid 161109 burnt up, has anyone else experienced this?

YO Phatfender, Get a grip, the guy said he already ordered it. His question was not are they obtainable. Read the question before you make a stupid response!! He was asking if anyone had this experience before and was likely looking for someone who had some constructive insight. Obviously you are lacking in that dept. I personally would read your owners manual and determine if both gas and electric should be running at same time

Water works on electric but not on gas it will light but will not keep running

It sounds like your thermal coupler needs to be replaced or maybe just cleaned. P.S. have you tried a different LP tank If its new or the person didn't pressurize the tank when filled you may not have pressure enough to keep the water heater lit.

Open flame remain out of the outlet manifold in the air shutter vent when i turn off the cabin switch of my suburban 6gl water heater

If flame remains after power shut off to gas valve, then the gas valve is obviously leaking by and can cause a very dangerous situation. PLEASE !! Shut propane off until that can be addressed.

Is the valve no or nc i have conanuity on one side but not both

Easiest way to check that is to put 12 vdc to + terminals, and ground to valve body, and use air in inlet, which should come out orifice side when energized. Jumper wires to a 12 or 14.4 volt cordless drill battery makes it easy. No flow, 1 or other or both solenoids stuck or shot, replace valve.

Suburbun rv waterheater 10 gallon with electric ignitor makes clicking noise because it'strying to ignite but it's like no fuel is getting to it to start.

I had a similar problem, I could hear the valve clicking and spark working, but no flame. I checked for voltage as per the previous post, and checked continuity of both coils. Both showed voltage and continuity, but the ohm reading on one coil was less than the other.

I called a rv repair shop looking to buy a new valve ($120 - ouch). He didn't have one and when I explained what I had checked, he said could be that only one valve is opening. He suggested I remove one wire from each coil, turn the heater switch on and when I hear the spark igniter, touch a wire to one of the coils at a time. If it clicks, then it's fine, if it doesn't, then it could be the coil that needs replacing or the valve is stuck. If you see a spark as you touch the wire but no clicking, then it's a stuck valve. If there's no spark, then it's most likely a defective coil. A stuck valve can sometimes be freed by tapping with a screw driver.

In my case, one valve clicked, the other didn't and no spark was seen so I had a defective coil.

The previous poster is right, replacement coils are not offered as a replacement part - but - the repair shop I talked to saves all the coils out of old heaters and I was able to buy one from him for $10.

Problem solved, heater now works!!
