Pilot light goes out
Posted by Steve Filla on June 08, 2001 at 12:00:44:
I bought a Kenmore Gas water heater, Model # 153.330551, on 1/31/01. From the first day I installed it I have had problems with the pilot light going out when I set the thermostat at the recommended 120F mark. Upon calling the Sears hot line I was told I should set it at mark "B", 140F setting to avoid the condensation that's putting out the pilot. The pilot light problem is solved at this setting but shouldn't I be able to operate my heater at the most economical setting without fear of the pilot going out?
