Have a richmond 6G40-36F1 hot water heater had to turn off gas for another issue, now igniter doesnt spark and pilot wont light


Not to sound silly, but are you pushing the igniter button down hard enough so it snaps? If so, your igniter is no good. Try to light the water heater the old fashioned way by using a match. I would use fireplace matches since they are long enough to reach the pilot light point.

When trying to ignite electric pilot light, when pushing button to ignite, pilot doesnt spark to create flame


Pull out sparking rod and lightly polish with fine steel wool. then put back together. Could be in control box but I doubt it. You will probably see mild corrosion on rod.

Water heater not making hot water


1) Electric water heater can be repaired, no need for new one.
Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Water-heater-ther-ele-600.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#veryhot

2) Ordinary homeowner can turn 6-year electric tank into a lifetime tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-maintain-water-heater.html

3) If you replace heater, then buy inexpensive tank-type from local box store, and use coupon or offer 10% off. Read the product manual.
Avoid tankless at all costs unless you are rich.
No need to buy expensive water heater on the promise of thicker insulation or higher energy factor, or 'lifetime elements' or 'advanced technology', any other slicker promotion aimed at folks with the promise of a golden rainbow of money-saving-bliss if only you would spend more money. All costs are energy. Expensive water heaters do not pay back, and 1 repair will dissolve all anticipated savings. And expensive heaters can never be maintained to last as long as ordinary tank-type electric.

5yr. old aquastar 125x lp wont stay lit after about 5min. use. just started happening out of the blue... a clicking noise preceeds the flame shutting off. any ideas?


The gas valve makes a single click sound when the pilostat shuts off. That is a safety holding coil for units with standing pilot lights and closes if it thinks the pilot went out. In electronic ignition, the same holds true except the sensor is electronic.

My heater is not getting hot i can not tell if their is a pilot light or a reset button i don know what to do with the heater it is very different how can i heat my water heater


Reliance makes gas and electric water heaters.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/

Best way to start is to look at label on side of tank.
Label has serial number, model number, plus it will say if heater is gas or electric.
Reliance water heater age is shown in serial number: first digit is letter, second two digits are numbers: for example numbers 02 would be the year 2002.
If water heater is 8-12 years old, it might be time to consider new tank.

Gas water heater has 3 inch metal flue pipe coming out of top of tank.
Gas pilot is probably off.
Relight pilot light: Most gas water heaters today have instructions on side of tank just above gas valve that say how to relight pilot light. Instructions vary by model.
If you have gas water heater that is older, it might be easier to call a plumber.

Electric water heater has panels on front.
Open top panel and push in red reset button.
If you have electric water heater of any age, you can usually fix it yourself same day:

We believe we are to turn on the water electric button to start the heater. Directions say the light should go out when ignition occurs. It won't go out.


If your water heater has an electric element, as well as electronic ignition for gas operation, you may be getting them mixed up. One switch should show like a lightning bolt beside it,(that's for hydro use) the other will show a small gas flame beside it.(that's to turn on ignition for gas operation.)
If you only have one, my guess is it's for electronic ignition. When you turn that on, you should hear the water heater trying to ignite outside.("click,click,click) and then burner should ignite if you have your propane on. Get back to me with your model number of the heater, behind cover outside, and I can tell by that what you have as far as just gas, gas and electric, etc.

Wont light


Is there a spark? or do you need a long match? The button usually just opens the pilot so it can be lit. If its not electronic.
