Question about General Electric Water Heaters
Sounds like you should be replacing the valve. The old one should turn off with a pipe wrench, counterclockwise. Be as gentle as possible so that you do not break the threads off inside the tank. You will have to add pipe dope or teflon tape to the threads of the new valve prior to putting it in. Also, when you take off the old valve, the water in the tank will start flowing out. You need a way to handle this. Prior to removing the old valve, turn off the gas and turn off the water supply to the tank. Good luck!
