"Stutter" in gas, power-vent H/W heater
Posted by Dave on January 10, 19101 at 20:27:39:
I have a 7 year-old residential, natural gas hot water heater with electric power vent, manufactured by State
Industries. It has developed a "stutter" when trying to maintain tank temperature.

It tries to fire by first turning on the power vent, but the burner fails to ignite so the power vent shuts off. It
seems to repeat this cycle about every 10 minutes. Nonetheless it continues to provide more than sufficient
hot water on demand.

The installing plumber has retired... can you provide any insight into the problem so I'll know what to expect
when I locate a plumber familiar with this unit?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
