RTO Suburban Rv Water Heater Dsi Gas Valve Part 161109 Questions & Answers
Suburban hot water heater sw6p shooting out flames
Quit screwing around and shut gas off at tank valve and call a professional ASAP!!!!!!!!! This is a serious and quite dangerous situation. Fixya is full of people who think they know. This is a situation needing a hands on experienced professional,not a bunch of whining incompetent egocentric morons.
Suburban SW6DE Gas Solenoid 161109 burnt up, has anyone else experienced this?
YO Phatfender, Get a grip, the guy said he already ordered it. His question was not are they obtainable. Read the question before you make a stupid response!! He was asking if anyone had this experience before and was likely looking for someone who had some constructive insight. Obviously you are lacking in that dept. I personally would read your owners manual and determine if both gas and electric should be running at same time
Open flame remain out of
If flame remains after power shut off to gas valve, then the gas valve is obviously leaking by and can cause a very dangerous situation. PLEASE !! Shut propane off until that can be addressed.
Is the valve no or
Easiest way to check that is to put 12 vdc to + terminals, and ground to valve body, and use air in inlet, which should come out orifice side when energized. Jumper wires to a 12 or 14.4 volt cordless drill battery makes it easy. No flow, 1 or other or both solenoids stuck or shot, replace valve.
Suburbun rv waterheater 10 gallon with electric
I had a similar problem, I could hear the valve clicking and spark working, but no flame. I checked for voltage as per the previous post, and checked continuity of both coils. Both showed voltage and continuity, but the ohm reading on one coil was less than the other.
I called a rv repair shop looking to buy a new valve ($120 - ouch). He didn't have one and when I explained what I had checked, he said could be that only one valve is opening. He suggested I remove one wire from each coil, turn the heater switch on and when I hear the spark igniter, touch a wire to one of the coils at a time. If it clicks, then it's fine, if it doesn't, then it could be the coil that needs replacing or the valve is stuck. If you see a spark as you touch the wire but no clicking, then it's a stuck valve. If there's no spark, then it's most likely a defective coil. A stuck valve can sometimes be freed by tapping with a screw driver.
In my case, one valve clicked, the other didn't and no spark was seen so I had a defective coil.
The previous poster is right, replacement coils are not offered as a replacement part - but - the repair shop I talked to saves all the coils out of old heaters and I was able to buy one from him for $10.
Problem solved, heater now works!!
I have installed a new control valve assembly on
Check for 12 VDC at terminals on ECO and ( Therm)ostat. You should have power on both sides of each. ECO or thermostat may also have a reset pin in between spades that tripped as well, so push it in to be sure as well. If you have power on one side and not the other, replace it. If no power at all, start back at fuse panel, then to switch and out of switch.
My suburan hot water in
First, let water heater heat up until it shuts itself off. Now carefully, ( it should be hot) open pressure relief valve slightly and catch some hot water in a cup or container. Compare it to what comes out your tap, that you say is warm only. If that water from pressure relief feels hotter, then check your by-pass valves for proper operation and position on rear of water heater, as it may be in a position that is allowing cold to mix with hot, creating warm. Cold line will go direct in the bottom fitting and hot will come out top fitting, and make sure any valves in between those 2 lines are in off position. If all is well there, or water from pressure relief is only warm as tap as well, then buy a new thermostat and ECO for that particular model water heater from RV dealer/service center, and replace them. They are behind rubber cover on upper left side on water heater. When cover is off, they are held against tank by 3/8 nut. When you replace it, snug nut up good but be careful not to go too much and snap that small brass stud that nut goes on. Pay attention to position of old one, so new one goes same way.
Fan come on but there is no heat
I'm thinking the heading should be furnace so here goes. Need to test for 12 volt power at sail switch, and high limit switch as well. If you give me the model number may be able to guide you better. If you shut it down/off, and remove 2 screws holding cover on, inside your RV , you should see a model number like SF-- or NT -- on a stamp or label. Let me know if you find it and need more help.
My Rv water heater will not stay lit for longer
If your water heater dies, here's a quick way to find out if it is the Thermal Cutoff. First, MAKE SURE there are no obstructions in the flue tube. Then turn off the water heater's electric mode and turn on the gas mode. With the exterior access door open and looking at center of the water tank you'll see a black foam-covered area with 4 wires running to it. Look for the area marked T-STAT with two brown wires running to it. One of the wires will have a piece of clear tubing over it that covers a large diode- this diode is the Thermal Cutoff. (Mine didn't look burned or in any way defective, so a visual inspection won't tell you if it's bad or not.)
Remove the diode from the T-STAT terminal lug then disconnect the other end of the diode from the brown wire connector. Now connect the brown wire (without the diode attached) directly to the T-STAT terminal lug. Give it a few seconds and the water heater should turn on in gas operation mode. If it does, that means the Thermal Cutoff is bad and you'll need to get a new one from Atwood. Leave the wire hooked up, turn on the electrical mode to supplement gas mode (if you want) and you'll have hot water till you get the new Thermal Cutoff.
If the water heater doesn't turn on after a minute or so chances are it's not the Thermal Cutoff and you'll have to look elsewhere for your problem.
