Question about RTO Atwood Water Heater - 6 Gal LP
I have cleaned all f the electrical connections with scotch brite and still same outcome. I have changed out the ECO and Tstats as well. There was one weekend in two years which it had worked
Can you give me your model number off the sticker under outside cover?
Need to know as this will tell me if Manual ignition, or automatic spark, and if just gas operation, or electric element as well.
One thing you may want to try, if it has electronic ignition, is to remove the thermal cut-off diode from the circuit temporarily. It's the little diode inside the clear plastic tube, that is connected to your incoming power wire, and connects to thermostat. Simply remove it from the spade connector at the thermostat, and pull it apart at spade connector from incoming power wire, and connect incoming power wire to spade connector on thermostat. If you try to light it now, and all works good, the diode is faulty, and should be replaced.

Testimonial: "Sounds good, my model number is G6A-4E it uses a direct spark ignitor, where would I find the diode all of my wires enter then leave the ignitor box."
