Gas Water Heater Pilot
Posted by Brad Wilkening on January 08, 19100 at 16:23:33:
I have a bradford-white water heater and can not lite the pilot. I have replaced the thermocouple (did not overtighten it) and lit the pilot but goes out when I release the pilot button. The thermocouple is in the flame and is definitely hot. I was told to try the same procedure with the two wires to the valve unhooked. I did this and it still went out immediately after releasing the pilot button. Do I need a new propane valve, or is there more to the system because of the power vent system.
