Question about RTO Atwood Water Heater - 6 Gal LP

I have an Atwood water heater model G6A-8E. When

I have an Atwood water heater model G6A-8E. When lighting, it fires up as long as the igniter is creating a spark. When the spark stops the gas valves close. I have tested for voltage on the upstream and dowstream sides of the ECO switch. I have 12 volts in both places. When the igniter stops the voltage goes to 0 closing the valves. I checked voltage coming to the unit it stays at 12 volts.

Atwood g6a 8e


The yellow is caused because the flame does not have enough oxygen. Per your explanation that is being caused because the exaust is not working. Fix the exaust problem and it probably will begin opperating properly.

Check and adjust igniter probe(s) so that they are in front of the flame good. When you say it goes to re-ignite, can you hear, or see spark happening at igniter, but burner just won't catch?

I have a G6A-7E electronic ignite water heater.


Make sure propane is on and getting to your stove burners ok, first, then try switching it back on. If it fails to ignite, shut switch off and try a couple of times, if still no ignition, get back to me.

Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine and shuts down after a couple of seconds. I can see the diode in the control board continue to spark after ignition I replaced the igniter.


If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.

I have an Atwood Direct Ignition Model G6A-4E 6 Water Heater


I am a RV service tech and that is an old unit. Your control board is bad but with the age of that unit I would strongly suggest replacing the whole water heater, you can shove a pile of money at it and still have an old water heater when for 3 to 500 bucks you can have a new one with a 2 year warranty
