Water Heater Gas Valve Failed
This seems to be the week for propane issues. About 6 weeks ago I started running my water heater on propane because I operate on a 150 gallon external tank during the winter and we haven't had any winter yet. As of this morning I have 65% of my tank remaining. This time last year I was getting it filled again so I want to use some more of it before spring.
Night before last the tank quit heating. Working with my dealer over the phone I have checked for:
An ignition spark - yes
12v to the propane valve on the tank - yes
Positive propane flow getting to the propane valve on the tank - yes
But no propane is passing through the valve = bad propane valve
The good news is it is still under warranty, two screws and 4 plug in wires to replace it, it is easy to get to, and most importantly - The electric side of the heater works perfectly.
Isn't having a backup system nice?
