Pilot Light 153333346 Kenmore Water heater

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

From what it sounds like, the main reason the pilot is not staying lit is because the thermal couple is bad. I would suggest ordering the burner assembly because this will have the new thermal couple. The part number is 9003442. I would suggest having a certified technician to replace this part.

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the water heater. Usually when the pilot goes out for no reason I suspect the problem is a plugged air intake or flame arrestor. The flame arrestor is a fine ceramic filter in the bottom of the water heater. If it plugs up it stops the airflow and will cause the thermal cutoff to over heat and turn the gas off. I have provided you with the instructions for removing the burner and cleaning the flame arrestor. Make sure to use a brush and a vacuum to clean the flame arrestor. Turn the gas off to the heater and double check the connections before you turn the gas back on. If the flame still goes out after cleaning the flame arrestor, I recommend calling a service technician out to determine what is going on with the water heater. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance with the water heater.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
