Not necessairly. There are two seperate limit packs. One is 120VAC, which is on the left side. The second one is 12VDC. Which is used when using propane. To check the limit switch packs, remove the rubber cover which is about mid height on the left side of the heater. Using an ohm meter check for contunity.
Using compressed air set at about 25PSI be sure to blow out the orifice tube too.

Make sure the ceramic on the ignitor is not cracked or loose and connections are clean tight. I've also seen power boards pass bench test and still not work when installed on the unit. Remove reset button cover, check tsat, and eco connections. You can bypass the eco and tsat with a jumper wire to see if that is the problem. Just make sure you don't bypass for more than a couple of minutes.

Our cell and Internet service is minimal at best over the next few days as we travel.

I have full operation of the electric circuit for the water heater for the rest of the road trip.

I'll update and continue working on my propane problems with the water heater when I get home.

Thanks for everyone's input and suggestions so far, and I'll get back to you all soon.

Okay.

Back on the Homefront. Didn't do any work at all to the water heater.

Now when I start the water heater using propane, I turn on the switch, the interior red light lights for a few seconds, the light goes out, the burner fires up and it heats the water. So....when I started this thread, I had a propane problem with the water heater. No I don't?

The flame is pretty much a blue colour, so that's good. Not sure if it's the hottest flame available, but I do hear the roar of the burner. Is it necessary to have a professional repair person judge if it's burning 100% correctly?

I can't fix what's not broke right?

We were just touring around Northern Ontario when the propane water heater trouble started so elevation is not an issue. And yes, all other propane appliances worked fine on full tank.

Just one of those things I guess.
