Question about Honeywell Water Heaters

1 Answer

HI, I'm having trouble lighting my honeywell water heater. The directions say to push down the knob and push the igniter until pilot light is lit, then wait for the LED light to flash green before you can switch the knob to your prefered settings. well the pilot light lights but the LED light will not flash, and if you try to switch the knob to your setting the pilot light just goes out again.

Check the pilot is clean not a short flame so its missing the sensor. Also check flame sensor and connection .

Where is the pilot lite to the hot water heater


There is a small (usually ) aluminum slide door. You need to air out the immediately area of any possible gas, then turn the knob on the regulater to pilot, hold the button down for a minute or so then use a long match to light the pilot light inside that little door. Hold lit matches up to the little tube until it lights. Then turn knob to temp.

How can we ignite the pilot switch


The directions are on the inside cover of the water heater as well as on the paperwork you received with the unit.
If you have none of these, get the make and model number of the unit and look it up on the internet.
General directions to light a gas appliance:
1.Turn the switch to, "Off"
2.Remove the 2 panels at the base of the unit.
3 Identify the pilot device.
4.Get a long lighter or match on a stick that reaches the pilot.
5.Turn the gas knob to the, "Pilot" position
6.Light the match and put it next to the pilot while pressing down the knob
7. Keep the knob pressed for about 45 seconds after the pilot lights
8. Let go of the knob so it's in the, "up" position
9. Turn the knob to the, "On" position
-the water heater should fire up in under a minute.
10. Put the metal panels back into position.

Wont light


Is there a spark? or do you need a long match? The button usually just opens the pilot so it can be lit. If its not electronic.

Burner on new Whirlpool gass water heater will not stay lit


One of the proper ways to light a gas water heater, is to turn the black knob to Pilot, put a match to the end of the pilot light, while holding the match there, push the red reset button down and hold the match & the reset button down for one full minute. Then, release the reset button and turn the black knob to On. This should keep the pilot light on.
