Gas Water Heater Pilot Problem
Posted by John on November 24, 1999 at 08:11:39:
I've had to re-light my pilot light each day for the past (3) days. Lighting it and keeping it lit prior to turning
the water temp up is no problem at all. Sometime after the tank is heated, the pilot goes out. Is there a
quick test of the thermocouple? Can I make a resistance check? Is it possible that the pilot isn't aimed
at the thermocouple (moved)? I have no issue replacing the thermocouple but want to make sure that I
fix this right the first time. Any suggestions would be great.
