    I have the same problem with my SR-1001. I took the gas control apart and found the mechanism controlled by the thermocouple does not pull in when the thermocouple is heated. The shaft sticks. There is a coil of wire on two poles and the thermocouple isn't inducing enough of a current in the coil to get a magnetic field to pull the shut off down. I cannot find another gas control or parts. Thank you Home Depot for not standing behind the products you sell.

Sounds like a sensor problem or a gas blockage. Get a gas expert to look at it. Gas is dangerous and can cause severe burns or explosions resulting in loss of life and property.

New Reliance gas water heater won't stay lit


There is a sensor that shuts off the gas to the burner if a flame isn't detected within a few seconds. It will usually look like a tube that extends into flame of the burner. It may be defective or it may just need to be repositioned so more of it is directly in the flame.

Gas log will not stay lit for more than 5 minutes


Sounds like the gas regulator has failed.

There will be sufficient gas flow to light the pilot and get a flame prove, then the main burner lights, you will probably see the pilot flame reduce somewhat, and no longer fully surround the flame prove sensor.

When the unit is relighted, the complete sequence starts all over again.

Have the gas regulator checked and adjusted (if adjustable) or replaced by a qualified technician.

Dryer is gas model dg212 flame come on but will not stay on long enough to dry clothes


if burner lights but fails to relight after several shut offs suspect burners solenoids change both they come in a kit ..once the solenoids get hot they will sometimes open electrically and fail to reenergize after cool down they will open gas valve and alow burner to reignite..also be sure vent to outside to clean and vent behind dryer is not flattened or kinked has know flame to not be properly burning due to exhaust problems and flame sensor would shut burner down
