It will all depend on what brand the hot water service is
although you should be able to put the dial on pilot light setting which is normally light an * on the dial
hold the dial down whilst pressing the clicker (piezo ignitor) normally can take between 10-60 seconds then turn the dial clockwise to the on position and turn your temp gauge with numbers to around 4-5 and it should make a noise when the heater ignites !!!!!
see how you go

Self igniting hot water heater won't reset.


Today's water heaters have sealed combustion chamber and piezo igniter.
If igniter is bad, then water heater will not light... replace igniter.

Water heater pilot light is out, cant restart intelli vent controller


Possibly the air intake located at bottom of heater needs to be cleaned with feather duster under water heater.
Read your product manual for steps.
Copy following link for general illustration.

Other causes can be bad intellivent gas control valve, poor venting, hot attic, low gas pressure, dirty combustion parts, tripped FV system.
Copy following link for available intellivent troubleshoot resources:
The service manuals are large files and open slowly.

No hot water coming out. ignition comes on ,but no lighting of gas. There is gas in bottle and it's on as normal.Works one day , doesn't the next.I cannot remember if there was a pilot light before!


check for pilot but im sure that the pilot is on demand thats what makes these things so cool and inexpensive to operate. try having someone turn on the hot water while looking for ignition. if there is nothing it may be a relay. im not sure but if you open it up check for a 3 amp fuse its green. all the new furnaces with mother boards have a fuse. I am not really a heating guy but i have been looking into on demand systems and sat in a training session at the plumbing supply. never hurts to try and help.
if its not a fuse or the ingniter isnt functioning you may need to call a heating person who knows on demand or check Bosch on line maybe they have the trouble shooting guide if you dont.

sorry that all i can suggest hope it helps

Can't get hot water heater to work - Rinnai Infinity 18


If you can get to the gas valve make sure it is in the on position and not in pilot or off. Does it sound like
a spark ignition system? Even though you say the gas valve is on, by code thered should be a gas shutoff valve located within site of the unit. Follow the
gas pipe until you find such a valve and make sure its on

I have been trouble shooting a sunglo PSA265 that wont light or even try. I have swapped out the control board and electrical push button switch with another one that worked but still this heater would not...


it should be the other way around actually.The gas valve should remain closed until the board gets a signal the the pilot light is lit or the board has heated up the hot ignition surface.which ever you have .I imagine hot surface ignition outside.is the hot ignition surface glowing.if not if may be cracked check for a crack,or a loose connection.if the hot ignition is glowing you should also be getting a signal to your thermostat.remove the wire,and check for a voltage.if you have a voltage,the problem is with your valve.check to make sure your gas is turned on as well.If it is a pilot lite make sure your thermocouple is making contact with the flame.

Gas hot water tank, pilot light


Look inside the water heater when it is heating the water, the flame should be blue. If it has yellow tips on the flame, it needs an adjustment to the air shutter. There is a nut on this air shutter to make this adjustment. This adjusts the air gas mixture. You may first try just simply tapping on the burner lightly to loosen any debris that may have built up and vacuum it out. MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE GAS BEFORE CLEANING THE BURNER!! Also, check for drafts that may be blowing out your pilot light, Furnace register or outside drafts on windy nights. Some water heaters have an automatic shut down if the water heater gets too hot, so don't have it set to its hottest setting. Most water heaters only last about 10 years or so, It could be you are ready for a new one....Joe

Pilot light will not ignite on my bosch 10p water wizard system


This process is best performed at night so you can see the pilot light in action.

Important...*ensure all hot water taps are off*


1) press and hold pilot button (extreme left button)
2) press spark button (extreme right button) while holding in pilot button from step 1
3) with the pilot button still held in, observe the pilot light through the window. if there is no pilot light now, your heater is busted.
4) if you see the pilot light above, very quickly *completely* remove your finger from the pilot button while at the same time pressing in the flame button (second from left - this button will not work until you completely remove your finger form the pilot button so timing is important) - the pilot light should stay lit.
5) if it goes out or your timing is off, repeat these 4 steps until it lights.

This could take a number of tries and can be quite frustrating until you can get the timing of step 4 right. Good Luck!
