How to Handle Gas Water Heater Repair

for Hot Water

When you have a gas water heater installed at home, you may have to deal with certain issues

from time to time. It is easy to deal with minor water heater repair, but you may have to call in a

specialist when things are beyond your skills. One of the most common issues people face with

the gas water heater is that it turns on but does not produce hot water. If you are experiencing

the same issue, you can check for a few things to make your water heater start working again.

For instance:

 Check the thermocouple. You will have to gain access to the entire burner assembly to

see if the thermocouple is functioning properly or not. If it has malfunctioned, you may

want to replace it to resolve the issue. Keep in mind that your water heater will never

have hot water unless the thermocouple works fine and keeps the burner on as well.

You can replace the thermocouple with ease – it usually costs $5-$10 and you can

handle everything on your own. Be sure to check all connections for gas leaks once you

have replaced the thermocouple.

 Pay attention to the gas valve. When you do not get hot water, there may be an issue

with the gas valve. You will find it on the outside of the heater. Its main function is to

control the flow of gas to the burner as well as to the pilot light. A faulty gas valve will

affect the gas supply and make it impossible to get hot water. Thankfully, it is quite easy

to change the gas valve on your own. You do not need to ask a water heater repair

specialist to come and do it for you. However, you will be better off letting a professional

do it if you do not know how to disconnect the main gas line first. Without disconnecting

it, you should not try to replace the valve or else you will end up dealing with difficult and

potentially dangerous situations.

 Check the burner of your water heater. Any problem with the burner will keep the heater

from functioning properly. You are likely to have problems here if the burner has rusted

usually due to a water leak. If you have been using your water heater for several years,

the burner can get cracked or damaged. If you find any issue here, you will have to

replace the burner, which is quite similar to how you repair the thermocouple.

The fact of the matter is that you will have to deal with an irritating and annoying situation when

your water heater suddenly stops heating up the water. There could be many possible causes,

but you may need to talk to a professional if you have checked for the issues mentioned

already. Be sure to hire an experienced plumber because only they can pinpoint the exact issue

and fix it efficiently.
