I'm sorry you have this problem. The information you received is good but it does not pertain to this problem. Now, the wire should have a connector on the end that connects to the igniter. If this connection is damaged or broke the pilot assembly # 9006666, which includes the electrode and wire, will need to be replaced. If the igniter # 9006143 is damaged, it will also need to be replaced. These parts are available at SearsPartsDirect . This system cannot be lit manually. I recommend having a technician make this repair. 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 Life.

Pilot outage is a frequent problem with the new type water heaters. I'm attaching the instructions to light the pilot. For flame and pilot outage the 2 most common reasons are a stopped up air vent or arrester. You can check and clean the air vent but a technician will be required to clean the arrester which is located under the burner assembly. Listed below are the main reasons for frequent pilot outage:

  • Clogged air intake screen(s) or flame arrester
  • Insufficient combustion / ventilation air supply
  • Improper vent system design or operation
  • High ambient air temperature (115 F or more)
A clean water heater and water heater environment are the first things that should be considered when troubleshooting a FVIR water heater for pilot outage. Government regulations for higher efficiency and new flammable vapor ignition resistance requirements have made today’s water heaters more sensitive to the need for proper air flow around and through the appliance. A dirty environment can affect a water heater’s performance. Take time to make sure that the area around, and under the heater is clean and obstruction free. Make sure that the air intake screen(s) (LDO screens) located on the base ring of the heater are clean and properly installed; this is where all of the combustion air enters the heater. Regularly cleaning the screen and keeping dust and debris from around the heater could possibly save a costly service call. I recommend having a technician check your water heater. If not adjusted properly, an improper flame or vent system could be very dangerous. I'm listing a site you can access to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

How to install the heat trap nipples?

A:

These nipples help keep the hot water from migrating out of the tank. They help keep the heat in the tank. The flapper has to open on the inlet (cold) side, so it should be up. It has to allow water out on the (hot) side, so the flapper should be down. Make sure you use some teflon tape on the nipples, to help make a good seal. After the nipples and water line is reconnected, open the water valve and run some water out of the tap. If the water comes out ok, you have installed the nipples correctly. If no water comes out, the nipples will have to be reversed. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.
