Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Check the power output of the thermocouple. Often times as they weaken the power output drops well below the 750mV they should develope and will not be high enough to pop open the vgas valve unless you help it with the 'bump'. Even then it struggles with holding the valve open and eventually lets it close.

Thermocouples wear out over time and are a common part to replace every several years. You should be able to remove the old one and take it to any local appliance parts store for a replacement.

I have brand new Whirlpool gas water heater and forgot to put on air filter. Have tried to light the pilot light and it will not stay lit. Can you tell me if the air filter could cause this


Not unless the system has a fault switch whereby the switch requires a filter to activate the heater. Generally Not.
As a rule, your GAS company will come to your residence FREE of charge to check the heater and start it for you.

My ford econoline e150 van wont start unless you sray starting fluid in it then it runs but barely


Check the fuel pump pressure and volume. Fords also have a fuel inertia switch/relay. If the vehicle was bumped hard and then no t starting, find the switch and press the red reset button. This will restore fuel pump activity.

The pilot and flame dont stay on in my gas water heater


Different water heaters have different problems.
Look at label on side of water heater for brand, model and type so expert can identify correct action.

If this is tank heater, the air intake could be clogged, gas pressure low, bad gas control, etc.

Low boy water heater leaks at point where cold water pipe enters caseing.The leak is below the threads.The caseing is rusted at the point where the pipe goes through.Can this rusted place be patched or...


1) Your water heater needs to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
Tanks rust out after anode rod is depleted unless anode is inspected and replaced 1-3 years.
Water softener causes anode to deplete quicker, so inspect every 2 years.
Also stray household current can cause tank to rust out. Put bare copper ground wire between hot and cold pipes on new heater.

2) First thing is protect yourself from tank rupture where water heater bursts open and water runs until it's shut off. Ruptured tanks are big topic in homeowner insurance industry today because they cause major damage inside house.

- Turn off heat source so tank is not under pressure:
Gas: Rotate dial to pilot so pilot light stays lit, but burner does not turn on
Electric: turn off circuit breaker

- Turn off water going into tank using shut off above tank.
- Open hot side to bathtub to relieve pressure from tank.
- Check label on side of tank to get tank specifications for replacement.

3) What to do until replacement.
You can get by for a while on leaking tank by turning it ON only when needed.
Make sure tank is full of water before turning heat source back on.
This will buy time until replacement.
Electric tank heats 21 gallons water per hour.
Gas water heater 41 gallons per hour
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water, bath uses 12-15 gallon hot water.

4) Additional reading so next tank lasts longer

Atwwod 10 gal gas/elec water heater won't work on elec.


THE LIGHTED SWITCH SHOULD BE THE 12V ENERGY SOURCE TO ACTIVATE THE LP SIDE OF THE HEATER. THERE SHOULDN'T BE A LIGHTED SWITCH FOR THE 110 SIDE. THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH OR A COMBINATION OF SWITCHES. ONE ON THE WALL LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH AND ONE MOUNTED BEHIND THE HEATER.
