Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

Our Aquaatar 125FX LP is 5 years old. I put in a rebuild kit in the water valve but the pilot light does not light the burner unless I turn the water on and off several times. There is plenty of propane in the tank What could be the problem?

    The problem is the intermittant operation of the flame sensor. The pilot lights every time but the flame sensor does not trigger the burner unless the water is turned on and off maybe three times. Suggestions?

Pilot tankless water heater utilizes Bosch's revolutionary hydro-generated ignition system incorporating hydro technology into a domestic water heating appliance. This new technology generates pilot spark from the flow of water eliminating the standing pilot light. The 125 HX LP (Liquid Propane) system ignites the burners when water is flowing without the need for electricity or batteries.

My aquaStar 125 BNG,will not shut down automatically when water turned off.


The water valve may be dirty and sticking, prohibiting it from fully closing the gas valve. This part needs to be periodically serviced (every 2-5 yrs depending on water quality and use) Purchase a water valve rebuild kit to service water valve.
This answer is off the Bosch site.

Gas water heater: burner doesn't fire, replaced gas control valve


Hello,Don't worry about the rust flakes as every burner collects then and is normal.The new control should click.Please check incoming gas pressure supply 3.5"WC natural gas / 9"WC for LP.Check it at the piolt tube with a pressure dial meter,I assume the water temp now is cold.Did you change the thermocouple also as this provides the power to run the control?

I have a whirlpool gas range , it must be the cheapest one as it has no electrical connections,and I have no manual ,how do I light the pilot lite ????


There are actually two pilot lights to light, (maybe three) Under the top there would be the old style flash back tubes leading from two burners to a pilot. This small flame stays lit while the gas is on. When you turn a burner on some gas flows back through the tube and flashes or lilghts the burner.
When you turn the gas on there is always gas through the pilots, unless shut off with the little set screws if you follow the lines. From the factory these are on and open. Small set screws also adjust pilot flame size.
THe other pilot for the oven is down by the main burner. There is a small cap tube from the gas valve to a holder just under the burner. This is where it is lit..........
There is another line to the thermostat when you lturn it on that opens more gas to increase the pilot to a biggger flame to open the gas valve burner assembly.
.Also ranges usually come set for natural gas, and you have to do spud adjustments, regulator, air flow only if you want to change to lp......
Put a new flex line on, and be careful with gas...........

I have a Raypac C155A LP spa heater. won't light


I would agree with you. The pilot generator has probably degraded over the years and is only proving enough millivolts to power the pilot but not enough to run the gas valve for your main burners.

Replacing the pilot generator, preferably the entire pilot assembly, will fix the problem.

Electronic water heater burner often won't light tho pilot's on


it sounds like you pilot lite is to far away from the burner, make sure that the burner is sitting in it;s purch, look thru the site glass it can be moved by hitting or bumping into the out side of the gas tubes on the outside of water heater, if not, the burner assembly may have soot on it. you might also want to make sure the filters are not clogged on the shut offs that will give it less pressure then it needs to make the unit come on,, write me , gary1121@aol.com
