This is normal. It has a time limit to fire off. The heater will cut off if it does not light.It sounds like it is never lighting up. Check your ignition source. I am not sure if you have a spark plug type or a glow bar.

I do not know if I will get an answer, but here it gos, my moniter heater cuts on, starts to heat up a little and then makes a small click noise and then shuts off


Remove Obstructions The overheated condition may be caused by obstructions blocking the air flow to the heater. Check: • The front of the heater • The circulation fan (on the back of the heater). • The flue pipe (outside) Step 5: Remove the Louver Remove the screws at the louver, and carefully clean.

I have a Samsung rs21!!! it wont cool in either compartment. when I plug it in the compressor fan does a quarter turn then stops. the compressor runs for about 30 seconds then cuts out? any ideas plea


most likely the start relay on the compressor that changes from start windings to run windings. the compressor will run for about 30 seconds on start windings then click out on internal thermal overload.
this can be confirmed by turning it on and letting it do the 30 second run then when it stops just wait and see if it cuts in and tries to run again (usually takes about 5 min) the second time it cuts in it wil most likely not run for as long (usually about 10 seconds). if this is what it does get a new compressor start/run relay.
as for the fan flick it with your finger and see if it spins freely.

Atwood water heater g6a8e lights but flame goes out after 5 to 10 seconds. I replaced igniter / thermocouple and it worked for a while but problem is back. So I need to replace circuit board?


Make sure you pull connector off and clean it and contacts on board. Be sure igniter is in flame good too. Does it have the thermal cut off in-line? Its the little resistor looking piece inside the plastic cover. If it does, and still running a few seconds and going out, remove it from the circuit, and connect wire end to where you removed cut out from, thus eliminating it from the circuit, and test it. If that cures it, replace that cut-out, as it is a safety device in case of flame up, it cuts gas off to prevent fire. Just leave it out long enough to test it.

What Atwood water heater models will replace model GCH6A-9E?


Any 6 gal will fit in same cut-out (hole) . 12-5/8" H x 16-1/4" W x 17-5/8 deep. In order to move up to a 10 gal, you need to be able to cut hole a little bigger. 15-3/4" H x 16-1/4" W x 20-5/8" deep. Usually your depth will allow , and width is same, just a matter of whether you have room to make height bigger.

Have an G6A-8E Atwood water heater. It Starts fine and shuts down after a couple of seconds. I can see the diode in the control board continue to spark after ignition I replaced the igniter.


If it has the little thermal cut-off in power wire to thermostat (has a little plastic jacket over it) try removing it, and connect female spade from power wire, directly to male spade on thermostat, and see what happens. Also, make sure electrode is positioned in flame good for flame sensing properly.

Heater will not stay on


when a heater runs for 30 seconds or les some heaters run or about 1 minute this is mostly a problem with how much water is getting in the heater if is too little the pressure switch cuts the heater off or the high limit switch is shutting off the boiler why because the small amount of water getting inside your heater get hot to fast and make the heather to get so hot and the high limit switch turns the heater off the solution is to check your filter make sure is clean or cleaned they get dirty soon if your filter is clean and still doing it check the bypass in the heater normally is located next to the lines going in and out in the heather lines I have fix so many heaters my self I use to have a business in california as swimming pools repair so I know this and your heater is not to big to say is your gas regulator gs regulator is a common problem on heaters ranging on size from 30-36-40 BTU

Kersone reddy heater won't start, just buzzes


The R150B uses motor #097308-06, has a split phase motor. The secondary windings, which give the armature a jump-start, have gone bad. The motor is not serviceable. Try reddyparts.com - they seem to have the most parts.
