Question about American Standard Water Heaters
Will not light pilot light. Why? American Standard water heater Model GR-40t1-3-6 40 gallon.
I have followed the instructions to the "T". The only thing I cant confirm is the gas or air in the lines... Can any one Help? Thanks
Did you bleed the gas line?
you must loosen the connection at the water heater until you smell gas coming out, then tighten. wait at least 5 minutes before attempting to light. this will give time for the gas to dissipate
if it still wont light... are the connections to the thermocouple tight? if that is tight, might be a bad thermocouple, you will need to replace it.
