Gas valve not working in new water heater
Posted by Mitch on December 05, 2001 at 02:16:18:
Just finished installing a new GE gas water heater and tried to light the pilot light but no gas. I pressed down on the pilot button and hear no gas wound and there is nothing to light below. Is the valve box no good or is there something I didn't do?

I confirmed there is gas getting though the (new flexible stainless) gas line to the valve box on the heater. I pulled the fitting back out and looked inside the valve box and see the little filter screen. All seems normal, all wather and flue hookup work fine. Tank filled normally.
