By model number it tells me that you have Electric element, as well as gas with electronic ignition for the gas, is that correct?
Any 6 gallon Atwood will work, and if you want to have all the same features available, you simply order another 6 gal, with same features. If you decide to forget the electric element, and just go with gas and electronic ignition, they should be able to order you just that tank. You can even order a tank with manual ignition, and forget all the other options if you wanted to. Personally, if it's got hydro and electronic ignition for gas, I'd replace it with same, unless I have no access to hydro, and will never use that option. If all those options are working on yours, you can just replace the tank, rather than buy all those items new on a complete tank. Any 6 gal. Atwood will go in the hole, it just depends on what you decide you want. I don't understand what the confusion is about, but maybe I'm missing something here.

    HI
    I WANT TO BUY ANOTHER COMPLETE ASSY. AS THIS UNIT HAS WORK 24/7 FOR 11 YRS. BUT FOR THE MOMENT NO ONE CAN COME WITH THE RIGHT REPLACEMENT UNIT. I WANT ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLE IT COMES WITH. IF YOU HAVE A REPLACEMENT NUMBER, THAT WOULD BE GREAT. DUE TO THE AGE I'M AFRAIAD OTHER THINGS WOULD GO OUT AND THE UNIT IS IN VERY TIGHT QUARTERS.
    THANKS
    ROBERT

    Honestly, that's a good choice and I wish more people would understand that you may replace one part today, another will go tomorrow, so your better off to replace complete and be done with it, and you also end up with the benefit of warranty on entire heater that way. Here's a link to Campers World, and page for what you need. No picture but from description you'll see it is 6 gal, (LP)-runs on propane, (120V)-runs on hydro as well, (DSI) direct spark ignition, which means it's wired to same switch and wiring etc, that you already have and should be a simple exchange. (http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/ite... ) Hope that helps.

I have atwood GC6aa-9e, will not fire the ignition tries 3 sets


Have you tried temporarily removing the thermal cut-out from the circuit to see if ignites then? It's the little resistor looking thing inside the plastic sleeve/cover that runs to thermostat. Disconnect it from the thermostat terminal, and from wire that is on the other end, and you should be left with a female spade connector at end of that wire. Connect that directly to thermostat terminal where the other part was connected, and try it. If it works, the thermal cut out is no good and needs to be replaced for safety reasons, in case of flame out of control, it blows and shuts gas valve off.

I have atwood pilot relight model gc6aa-8 pilot will light but after tank heats up & there is no call for hot water,pilot is out and very hard sometimes impossible to relight.


So are you saying that the first initial lighting of the pilot, without turning to on, works o.k., good flame etc, ? If not sure, try lighting pilot only, and leave setting at pilot only, and see if it's a good flame, and get back to me.

Does yours have the little cut-out diode looking thing in the plastic jacket installed between power wire and thermostat? If yes, remove it from the circuit and connect female spade of wire, to male spade of thermostat,(just removing it to by-pass it) and try it now. Let me know what happens.

I have a GC6AA-9E and the Pop off valve lifted and sprayed all the electrical components and now the igniter will not spark. Any ideas where is the best place to start troubleshooting the controls.


Look for the little round temp switch inside little plastic sleeve, below pressure relief valve . Look where is plugs into at both ends carefully. Now disconnect it (take it out of the circuit) and hook the one end, to terminal where other end went to. Now try it.

Atwood GC6AA-9E water heater isnt working properly


The ignitor is also a flame sensor. If it's not working to ignite, good chance it's not sensing flame to keep gas flowing as well. Could also be board.

I have model gc6aa-9e water heater. I think i blew the 120 element by turning on breaker B4 filling water tank after winter; The schmatic that came with camper shows part # 91160. Is this corect and if so...


Yes, That will do it. Most RV appliance parts can be purchase at RV dealerships that have parts department. Camping world has always been very helpful. As far as A part # is concerned I can't confirm although it is good to have it and the make and model of the unit. Good Luck
