Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.

SOURCE: Tankless water heater pilot light will not stay on

It is most likely the water valve stuck open, telling the controls to heat water, that it thinks is flowing through it, but without actual flow it overheats. Depending on how comfortable you are with taking it apart yourself, you could open the valve to see if it just needs cleaned out, or if you have a ruptured diaphragm or some other cause.

SOURCE: Atwood water heater - pilot light and flame malfunction

Michael,
The thermocouple sensor may not be in the best position to sense that the pilot is lit.
Adjust the thermocouple mount or simply bend the thermocouple "wire" so that the pilot flame is touching the tip.

Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

Richmond gas hot water heater. After I light pilot and main burner why does it flame out in 15 seconds?


If you had to light the main burner manually, something is wrong. Once you light the pilot and it stays lit, the flame heats the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the main burner. Either or both of the components you replaced could be defective.

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.

My gas water heater pilot light will not stay lit


Hi Mike,
1stly you have to understand what the pilot light does!
Yes, it lights the flame, but it protects you from gassing yourself!
that is thye main job!
hava a look inside!
In front of the pilot flame, (it might have a double flame... (one flame on the bottom & another on top.) is a curved piece of metal plate. The flame is supposed to heat that plate untill it it very hot! Thenm the plate bends down as it is a bimetyaalivc strip!
This opens the bsaety valve & you can let go.
The flame will noe stay on. If a gush of wind blows the flame out, the strip will cool & the safety valve close, preventing a dead family in the morning.
There is a newer system as well.
Right in front of the flame, is a pointed sensor with it's tip in the flame. . It has a electric cable running to a safety valve. This sensor have to heat up as well. It is a heat battery that activates the valve. See that it did not move!
If it heats up, & the valve does not keep the pilot flame going after a few seconds, the unit has to be replaced!
Safety first!

The water heater pilot does not stay on?


The pilot light on hot water heaters is controlled by a thermocouple, a small copper rod that usually sits in or very close to the pilot light flame. When they go bad, which is not unusual, they do not allow the gas line to stay open and feed the pilot light. The easiest thing for you to do would be to replace the thermocouple. When following the pilot light lighting instructions, be sure to hold the valve button down for 30-45 seconds in order for the pilot light to heat the thermocouple prior to turning on the gas burner.

We change the burner for the water heater, it stay li ari=ound 35 minutes, heat the water and after is turning on completely, even the small flame don't stay lit. What we need to do?


you mean it is only staying on for 35 minutes, if this is the case, then readjust or replace thermal coupling, if bad it will not sense the flame or pilot light. it has to be in pilot light flame as to work properly. ( this is for a gas hot water heater). if bad it will shut gas off to heater.

No hot water


If the pilot light stays on, the thermocouple and pilot flame are good. If you turn the control to "on" and turn up the thermostatic control knob to call for heating and get nothing else then the control (gas valve, thermostatic control) is bad. The control can be replaced - they are mostly generic except for gas type - but they are not cheap and if the control is bad the tank is probably not far behind (changing the control could cause it to leak). Unless the water heater is less than 3-5 years old, replace the whole thing!
