Living Large in a Small Way


Grokking the Gas or "Where does all the propane go when you're not looking?"

Posted by Jeremy on July 8, 2011 at 10:52 PM

Today was an eventful day.  I tested all my propane connections.  I had a few leaks that I quickly fixed.  After being sure there were no more leaks, I lit each appliance to make sure they were functional.  First the little 2 burner gas range.  It worked!  Then the fireplace.  Piece of cake.  Finally the 6 gallon hot water heater.  It has an indoor direct spark igniter.  The light indicating "reset" was on so I knew there was power to the 12 volt switch, but no ignition.  The instruction plate said to turn off, then back on, then off and then back off.... etc.  No ignition (arrg).  So.... when I finish here I believe I will reread the manual to see what I may be missing.  Lalalala.... Time has passed.... I read the manual and found that I may have missed a grounding "must do".  I will have to check that out.  Dang it!
