|In response to Re: Hot Water heater pilot light works and then it doesnt|
Confirm there are no leaks - I have a similar problem and luckily, I heard drops ( 1 every minute) dropping onto the hot plate - leaky water heater.
The handman website states,
"Gas Heater Pilot Light Keeps Going Out
Pilot light continues to go out even after changing the thermocouple. It works for a while with the new thermocouple then goes out and has to be relit. Works for a while then goes out again. Appears to be no disruption of the supply of gas.
-->Sounds like you have a faulty spill switch rather than thermocouple. Replace the spill switch. " the url is: http://www.handymanusa.com/questions/hotwaterheaterq.html
hope this helps
: : Any thoughts on what I should replace next?
: No spill switch on heater.
