Let me see if I have this right?

You're having problems with both gas and electric sides of the heater?
You've replaced the control module and it worked intermittently?
It's only worked on electric once for a little while?
Both Hi-limits are not tripped?


The gas and electric sides on that heater are completely separate except for being in the same compartment. Even the thermostats and hi-limits are separate for each side.

I think you need to start it and let it run till it stops, and then start checking for voltage along the circuit until you find where it stops.

The stove works good but the furnace does not. But I think that may be another issue.

It was working intermittingly even before I replaced module. And the electric worked at first and then stopped (the heater was full of water from the get-go). High limits are not tripped. But those high limits are right together in the same piece, aren't they? That may be a good place to start looking.

It is possible tha you have an intermittant power problem to the igniter module. Check all connections.

I totally agree on check all connections. It seems like a loose or corroded connector.

Sounds like good advice. I'll be doing that this weekend.

Ten years as an auto mechanic taught me that an electrical problem such as yours is often caused by the grounding circuit. It is common to both sides of the system and if loose or corroded can cause the problems you are having.

I am confused on the switch light that comes on when trying to use propane. When using propane, the DSl light should come on and go out after a few seconds and stay off until the switch is turned off. I had a bad control board and the DSL light never went out when the propane switch was turned on. The other light is for the electric only. If you are not getting warm water after 20 minutes or so there is an electric issue. Also not mentioned here, check the outside electrical switch on the the tank, it must be on as well. Look at it close, it is backwards IMHO in that it should be off when it is on.

Had the same problem, Found it was the switch in the master panel where you turn it on and off. .. Replaced the switch and have had no problems since.
