Question and Answers

Q:

Should the vent blower run all the time on my Kenmore Power Miser 9 water heater model 153.335816?

A:

According to the information shown below that is from your owner's manual, the blow should only turn on when the thermostat calls for heat and the gas pressure switch closes. If the pilot was out, this is likely why the blower was running constantly. Since you re-lit the pilot, the gas burner should ignite properly and eventually satisfy the thermostat so that the blower is shut off.

If you continue to have problems with the pilot going out or the blower fan running constantly, I recommend calling a service technician to examine the water heater.
