    Our 2004 hot water heater's pilot light will not stay lit. Whirlpool Model #FG1F4040SN3NOV. It has
    spark ignition; the burner will light a blue flame. After 3-4 minutes
    it turns to a yellow flame and then after 10 minutes, it goes out
    completely. Repairman said this model had a recall on the burner about
    a year ago and said it'd be best to replace the unit. Help! Haven't
    had a shower in 3 days!

Whirlpool Hot water heater pilot light keeps going out.


Your thermal couple needs to be cleaned (sand paper the portion where the pilot light heats it) or possible replaced. It sounds like it is not sending the correct signal to the gas valve.

The whirlpool water heater does not light bright enough to lite the pilot lite for the burner


Check the gas control valve and also the thermocouple. Be very careful of a back flash it will burn your hands, arms and face if they are to close.

I have smoth's hot water tank. problem is pilot lite is off. how do u turn it on?


You have tank-type gas water heater with standing pilot light.

Instructions for lighting pilot light are usually on front of water heater.
Since water heaters vary widely, if you want specific information without guessing, then add a comment with model number that appears on label on side of tank, and also describe the gas control valve on front of unit.
This information will let expert located manual and look up specific information plus troubleshoot steps for that model.

Reliance 606 natural gas water heater - model #640YORT - water does not stay hot. pilot has to be clicked to heat and then u can use hot water til tank empty and it will not continue to heat water.


If I understand correctly, the pilot light is not staying lit.
You light the pilot and water in the tank reaches temperature.
Once hot water is gone, then pilot light has to be lit again.

Gas pressure is good, and gas is flowing.
Thermostat is working at high end because it cuts off heating.
Vent is working because tank heats up.
Air intake is working.

Gas control thermostat might not be reading low temperature. Replace gas control valve.
Pilot tube might be dirty. Clean burner parts and combustion chamber, and air intake, and vent.
Backdraft might be blowing out pilot. Check for constant updraft by running water heater 5 minutes, and then light match under vent hood and see if smoke goes up.
Very hot air can put out pilot, especially when water heater located in attic. Add ventilation.
Improper vent might have water dripping back down into combustion chamber and putting out pilot light and rusting out the parts. Inspect for rusted parts and water.
