Question about Reliance & 50gal Electric Water Heater
We have a reliance 606 series gas water heater. In the past few days, we can't keep the pilot light lit. Sometimes it will light & stay on for a few minutes, but then kicks right back off. Other times, the pilot won't even light. Could someone tell me what the problem might be? Thanks!
The Reliance 606 has an enclosed thermal couple. Before you try taking that assembly apart take a wire brush to the bottom opening directly under the burner. There is a metal filter on the very bottom of the water heater. It could be that the filter has gotten filled with dust or animal hair. It took a serviceman 2 days to figure this out for me. The water heater has to have good airflow through that filter to work well.
