My water heater pilot light keeps going out. We have just finished replacing the water heater in our home and I’m trying to repair it while we wait for a new, much more expensive one to arrive.
So we’re waiting for a new water heater. That’s a pretty big expense, so we’re hoping that one of the newer models will work better. This new water heater is rated at 50,000 BTUs, which is the same as our old one. But even with a larger tank, the old one still runs at a comfortable 60,000 BTUs.
The most expensive water heater that works is the new model from GE. It is rated at a whopping 80,000 BTUs. If this is not enough for the water heater, my dad has a little doozy a few years ago that was rated for 95,000 BTUs, but his old one was still running at 75,000 BTUs.
So what’s going on? Well, according to the water heater techs in the video, the new one is still running the old one at some of its settings. This makes it the most expensive water heater that works currently, and it’s the same model that was the most expensive water heater to buy in the first place. But according to a new leak, the water heater was actually designed to be able to handle twice the BTUs of the old one.
I know this is a bit of a stretch, but I would like to believe that there are more than a few people out there who are going to put up with these kinds of issues on their water heaters. But as with most things, you can’t really be sure of anything until you put it out there for all to see.
To put it bluntly, I am not a fan of having a water heater that just keeps going off. The old one was a “good enough” heater and one of the best I’ve ever used. But this new one is worse. The new one is the most expensive water heater I’ve ever bought because it is also the most inefficient.
The new water heater has a new pilot light that keeps going out. I can’t figure out why that happens. The most efficient heater I have ever used has a new pilot light but yours just keeps going out. Its so frustrating.
The new pilot light does seem to be more prevalent in the winter, and this seems to be a common problem with water heaters. Most heaters have a temperature sensor that tells you when they need to turn on and off and they are constantly checking for this sensor, but with water heaters, it seems to be random.
The pilot light is the most common failure for water heaters, and it’s one of those things that only happens with heaters that aren’t designed to have pilot lights. This is the most common problem I’ve seen. The most efficient heater I have ever used was a model that had no pilot light at all. I’m pretty sure the ones that have had pilot lights fail are more expensive to buy, but I haven’t heard of any complaints about that.
