I was getting the red reset light on more and more on my hot water heater, so I doubled check the owners manual. My hot water heater was failing to light. Then I heard a bang one or two times. I then purchase a can of compressed air to clean the lighting parts on the hot water heater.
The compressed air did the trick, a bunch of soot and trash was removed. The hot water heater has worked great since the cleaning.
It seems that I missed the basics of checking all gas appliances on working order.
Thanks for all your help.
