A:

I can understand your frustration not having any hot water. If the pilot light has been off for a couple of days, the water could be a just a little warm but will probably be cold. The pilot can go out due to the following:

  • Weak thermocouple
  • Low gas pressure
  • A defective gas valve
The most likely reason will be a weak thermocouple. When not working properly, a gas water heater can be dangerous. I recommend having a technician come out to check it. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Home.
