If you brought the heater to our shop, and gave the above description, the first thing that we would do is check the air pump pressure.

Then, if the pressure is correct (not just close) we would check the photocell for signs of insect nest or something similar blocking the view of the eye.

You must troubleshoot to find out if the problem is fuel related or electronics related- maybe these tips will help (click for link).

Heater will not light when turned on.


depending on your ignition sorce pilot light or glow plug check for cracks or chips. if you have a glow plug do not touch with your hands. oil from hands will cause them to burn out.

The electronic ignition on a gas water heater will not heat up and glow red to ignite the gas to heat the water atwood r/v water heater


You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

hi, there maybe problem with the ignition, the heater trigger on the ignition may be a little loose thats why you have to shake it and comes to contact on a certain time. check the heater relays too for it maybe faulty already. hope this helps
