Check your connections on the coils. They probably need to be tighter. Seen it.

Kenmore gas dryer 80series model 110.c72852101

if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

Heater goes on for about 30second and goes off and the lights goes on services heater

Heater is probably not coming on. What you hear running for about 30 seconds is the blower. After they blower comes on you should hear a obvious click. That is the igniter coming on. If you don't hear the click you have an electrical problem. If you do hear the click then either the heater is not getting gas - check the valves inside and outside the heater - or the flame sensor is not working correctly.

Good Luck

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.

igniter stays on, no flame.-flame sensor

Electronic ignition tries to lite, clicks 5 times, then goes POOF

Gas burners go "poof" when they have too much gas in the area upon lighting. This is normally due to the ignition source not being close enough to the initial source of gas. This is normaally corrected by ensure the main burner is clean so that it distributes the gas correctly and having the ignition source at proper strength and location. I would have to have good schematics of your heater to be more specific. I hope this helps.

Suburbun rv waterheater 10 gallon with electric ignitor makes clicking noise because it'strying to ignite but it's like no fuel is getting to it to start.

I had a similar problem, I could hear the valve clicking and spark working, but no flame. I checked for voltage as per the previous post, and checked continuity of both coils. Both showed voltage and continuity, but the ohm reading on one coil was less than the other.

I called a rv repair shop looking to buy a new valve ($120 - ouch). He didn't have one and when I explained what I had checked, he said could be that only one valve is opening. He suggested I remove one wire from each coil, turn the heater switch on and when I hear the spark igniter, touch a wire to one of the coils at a time. If it clicks, then it's fine, if it doesn't, then it could be the coil that needs replacing or the valve is stuck. If you see a spark as you touch the wire but no clicking, then it's a stuck valve. If there's no spark, then it's most likely a defective coil. A stuck valve can sometimes be freed by tapping with a screw driver.

In my case, one valve clicked, the other didn't and no spark was seen so I had a defective coil.

The previous poster is right, replacement coils are not offered as a replacement part - but - the repair shop I talked to saves all the coils out of old heaters and I was able to buy one from him for $10.

Problem solved, heater now works!!
