Reliant 501 Natural Gas won't stay lit


Reliance water heater?
Thermocouple is good if the pilot stays lit continuously.

501 is older model. Unknown if this unit has FVIR protection and sealed combustion chamber or open air intake on front of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Reliance-2006-Service-Handbook.pdf

With FVIR protection:
Get more fresh air to the unit.
Clean the flame arrestor screen.
Test and replace the thermocouple:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermocouple.html
Inspect and clean burner and combustion parts
Test gas pressure, bleed air out of gas line.
Replace gas control valve.
Test draft air by lighting match and see if smoke is pulled into the vent pipe at draft hood on top of tank.

My water heater pilot light won't stay lit


you need to clean the filters in the bottom of the water heater and have the thermal couple also check and see if there is a gas leak by spraying all visible gas lines if this doesent work then you more then likely need a new watter heater

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

Rheem 22V50F1 pilot won't stay lit. Changed thermo couple & it lit, ran then went out. Let it sit overnight & it lit, ran then went out. What next? p.s. The unit is 5 years old. Thanks


If pilot lights and flame is robust and clear blue, and pilot goes out later, then some suspects can be excluded: air in gas line, low gas pressure, thermocouple is overtightened (finger-tight + 1/4 turn), thermocouple not positioned correctly in the flame, dirty pilot tube.
If flame is yellowish and small: then clean pilot tube and combustion parts.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#clean
Remaining suspects can include: air in gas line, low gas pressure, bad gas control valve, tight house so household vent fans pull air down water heater vent that blows out pilot, hot attic with inadequate ventilation, water dripping down vent.

Hi, I have an Everdure natural gas room heater and the pilot light has increased in size recently, comes halfway up the heating panels/plates. The heater is also hard to light sometimes.


Mark, Natural Gas pilot flames are fairly long. Usually about 2" to 2 1/2" long. However from what you are describing about the pilot flame licking the ceramic plaques of the heater is not normal. Plus, you indicated that you're having a hard time lighting the pilot. All of this leads me to believe, that the unit needs to be thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Especially, if it hasn't been professionally serviced on at least, an annual basis. Vent-free or Flue-less heating appliances collect a lot of dust, lint, etc when in operation. Because whatever is floating in the household is going to eventually work it's way into the heater and clog things up.

Cleaning the unit is something you can do yourself, with minimal tools. A vacuum cleaner with a hose, brush attachment, crevice tool and a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean you computer with) is all you need. The compressed air with a straw nozzle is used to blow out the pilot tip. this won't be mentioned in the Owner's Manual. http://www.everdure.com/MANUALS/HEATERs/Gas/EC%20&%20ECR%20User%20manual.pdf

I hope all of this will help you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Cheers....

Vent less gas heater wont stay burning. starts nice blue flame and than goes out no polite lite no flame.


If your heater does not stay burning then you should check each of the internal components over to ensure that they are working properly. Look at your heater's manual to do this. Failing this, the best thing to do is to buy a new one as the cost of repairing one can cost loads of money. Good luck :)

Rinnai 556 F sputters when starting


As a licenced plumber the only thing I will suggest is to call someone and have them service the heater.

Gas is deadly, and it sounds like there is something blocking the injector port, causing the gas/air mixture to not mix properly, which will make the flame change colour and characteristics.

The burner may need to come out, the inlet gas pressure will need to be checked and other things.

The rinai heaters are also expensive, as you would know, and trying to fix it yourself is dangerous. Also, once serviced by a plumber you will have the peace of mind to know it has been serviced properly and will run well for many more years.

You will need to find a licenced gas fitter.
