Intermittent water heater ignition failure
Posted by Gary Swart on January 25, 2004 at 13:22:37:
My Richmond power vent water heater usually works fine. Recently however, the ignitor has failed to light the burner before the water has become luke warm. Yesterday morning, the shower was just luke warm. When I went to the basement to check on the heater, the fire was on and the water heated normally. This happened a couple of other times recently. I suspect the ignitor may be failing, but would appreciate advice and opinions.
