The nozzle size and gap completely are designed to each burner, if the bock water heater had a becket burner than you would be okay with the gap, if not then what I would do is check the manufactures manual for proper nozzles and gaps of electrode assembly

SOURCE: My rv water heater ignites, I have a steady flow

If your lighting and not getting hot water then you have a valve closed or your by pass is in the wrong position, if it is burning on gas it will heat water

SOURCE: 2010 view winn- the hot water faucets, when wide

Double check that washers inside fittings attached to back of tank, are not wedged or pinched in there restricting flow. Drain tank, relieve water pressure prior, obviously. The other thing is to check that the by-pass is allowing good flow in to tank when in normal operation mode. Have seen those only go half way inside valve, but lever is at wide open setting. If all that checks out, try removing the check valve on tank, and replace it with a 1/2" galvanized pipe nipple, ( or certified plastic/nylon fitting same size) and reconnect water line direct to that, without a check valve. That should do it if nothing else was wrong. Now you have a choice, either change it or leave it out if everything seems ok, but double check that hot water isn't siphoning back to another utility such as toilet if you leave it out and toilet is close. Feeling that cold line (inlet) when water is hot should tell you. I've seen the check valve in both locations, hot (at top of tank) and cold (at bottom of tank -inlet) Not 100% sure why, right from factory that way, but I say, put it on bottom fitting if required at all. Let me know how you make out.

Central heating boiler (oil) will not start up - can you assist.

can you look inside combustion chamber and see if fuel is being coming out of nozzle and if you have a spark across the electrodes?. How long has it been since it has been taken apart and cleaned ? Has the oil filter been changed? You probably need to have it cleaned if this has not been done over a year.

My Atwood GC10A-3E will come on the first time I flip the switch. After that it will not relight until I turn it off and back on. When it relights it sounds like an explosion in the tube. I feel it is...

Sounds like some adjustments are needed. Air shutter for one, and ignitor/electrode. Have you by chance observed outside with cover open when it tries to re-light? My guess is that it is sparking/trying to ignite, but adjustments are needed for proper ignition. A good cleaning of burner tube, electrode, and proper adjustment of electrode & air mixture should cure your problem.

How to replace thermocouple in 42v50-50f

Copy following link:

Rheem 42V50-50 is ordinary atmospheric-vent gas water heater with mechanical (non-electronic) gas control valve, which says that unit has ordinary thermocouple, and not thermopile.
Buy generic thermocouple from local hardware.

To replace the thermocouple you need to remove entire burner assembly from water heater, and have replacement Burner access door gasket on hand. 1-800-268-6966
Combustion door held in place with tamper-proof screws

Since the water heater problem may be more complicated than just the thermocouple, and water heater flame arresor screen may need to be cleaned, and burner parts cleaned, door gasket replaced, and gas pressure checked, and piezo electrode checked, it might be best to have qualified service technician do the work for $300.

Atwood 7920-11 furnace will not light. I am trying to light the furnace on my 2006 Jayfeather 19H camper that is an Atwood and looks to be an automated pilot lighting system but I continually get a flame...

Your electrode acts as flame sense as well. Remove electrode and clean it thoroughly/carefully especially at end where flame would be sensed and retry. Be sure connections on high tension wire is good and clean as well as connector and contacts on circuit board as well. If still same result, replace electrode.

I have Crown Tobago boiler that cut off two days ago

Possibly due to a power failure, control unit needs to be reset. Hit reset button. Hold for 30 seconds. Also no fire typically due to nozzle clogged, no fuel which means control will shut down. Water in fuel will also shut boiler down. Clogged filter will decrease fuel flow. Electric eye face is dirty which will also shut it down. If you have a two line system, open up bleeder and see if you get a good flow. Check electrodes for burned ends or out of gap specs.

I have a Bosch AquaStar 2400ES-NG, Error Code EA appears, I hear ignitor clicking, heater tries to activate 3 times then EA code reappears.

There are three electrodes (connected next to each other by a single piece of metal) that run up into the heat exchanger. They are situated behind the black plastic air intake in the lower half of the unit. Pull out the electrodes and clean them off with steel wool or fine sand paper. Also take the opportunity to blow the dust out of the inside of the unit and clean out the air intake.
