Lynnkc304,

This is a classic reddy heater problem. They use the bleed air to determine the pump pressure and ultimately the mix of the air/fuel. Once the filter gets dirty the relationship changes and the unit gets too much fuel. The solution is to get a new filter and the pressure gauge necessary to set the pressure after installing the new filter.

I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem, where to get the parts and how to complete the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and the generous rating.

I have a whrilpool water heater model fg1f404053nov replaced the thermocouple, stays lit for a couple of days and goes out....change out the gas vavle ???


Resources for Whirlpool/Craftmaster gas water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html

Problem might be diminished air supply or bad venting. Clean the air intake located on bottom of water heater using compressed air or feather duster. Air intake screen is series of openings as wide as razor blade and can easily clog.
Clean the combustion parts and burner. Bleed air/water out of gas line. Check gas pressure.
Check for pilot and venting issues on link above, including tight house, and other gas appliances and vent fans pulling draft down the water heater vent pipe, etc.
Also see service manuals for each type of gas control valve, and replacement steps for each type.

Heater blowing hot air


If you have a new heater core inside, some of the probable causes of your lack of hot air include the two heater hoses, heater control cable, water pump, and damper/vacuum door. A handy diagnostic article that explains this will is the following:

the fuel line goes to the back of nozzle and the air line goes to the front.the air line and fuel line are not clear on that unit.sounds like some one changed them.also the fuel filter goes in the unit backwards from what the arrow shows.check your air pressure.you need to put a gauge on it so it is correct.

Heater on blowing cold on driver side and hot on passenger side


This sounds like an air damper is not operating, maybe a cable sticking or a vacuum line come off.

Kozy world propane wall heater. The pilot light will work


Sounds like you have a common problem with infrared heaters. They are very dust sensitive and they will light and then go out when they are dusty. If you have already tried to blow it out at home you need to take the heater to your propane dealer who will take the heater apart and blow it out correctly. They will then hook it up to their gas line and make sure that the problem is fixed. I hope that you haven't blown up into the bottom of the heater where the gas line is connected. There is a diaphragm up in there and if you blow into it you risk messing it up to where it won't work at all.

Blow Gun Specs


Specifications for air blow guns include pressure capacity and air line connection type. Pressure capacity or maximum rated pressure is rated at the air inlet and measured in pounds per square inch (psi). Many types of air line connectors are available. Quick-release connectors contain fittings that are attached internally. By contrast, push-on connectors include barbed ferrules. Air blow guns use several types of national pipe thread (NPT) connectors, most of which are inch-based and female. Important NPT measurements include threads per inch (TPI) and outside diameter (OD). 1/8” NPT connectors have 27 TPI and an OD of 0.405”. 1/4” NPT connectors have 18 TPI and an OD of 0.540”. 3/8” NPT connectors also have 18 TPI, but an OD of 0.675”. 1/2” connectors have 14 TPI and an OD of 0.840”. #10-32 NPT threads are also available. Air line connections that can swivel or pivot are suitable for applications that require versatile positioning.

Pilot light wont stay lit once heater shuts off/ light goes off randomly


Hi Watertec00,

I am not familiar with this heater but it sounds like it could be a blockage in the main gas line into the heater or perhaps a blockage to the pilot gas line and maybe starving for gas. Best bet first is to check the main gas line from the heater. Easiest way to do this is to remove it from the heater and blow it through with compressed air. Then try the heater again. If that doesn't fix the problem then you can try blowing compressed air down through the pilot line. Could be a little dirt creating a blockage there. Then try the heater again. If it still does the same thing then try removing the panels to expose the heater's piping. If you can remove the main pipe into the heater from the gas and blow compressed air through it it should clear any obstruction from both the main line and the pilot. If this doesn't work then I would think you have a more severe problem and will need to take it to your local Heater Repairer. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan
