You might try tapping on the flow switch. Ours has the same problem and every time it was in for warranty work there was no problem.

The tech said to try to tap on the flow switch and it seems to take of the problem. There is some sort of ball in it that sticks. It is a pain.

Thanks.

Well Girard sent me different parts next day . No charge !! I call them maybe 5 times in a two week time period-- always talked to a tech??

So maybe try calling them again. Remember it if 2pm out there right now. Be a great time to call them. They sure helped me ??

They are 3 hour behind eastern time. Good luck.

Every time I call during business hours, It goes to a message.

I've left a few.

Someone finally called me back about 5 days later. I told him I'd rather communicate via email because I was busy at work.

He sent a test email. So I replied with questions for him. Twice!
That was 3 days ago.

Still waiting.....

Well, I haven't been able to get any messages returned from Girard!

The sail switch is out of stock at all RV dealers around here. And their suppliers are out of stock as well.

Leaving for vacation next Friday. I need to find this part.

My water heater is model GSWH-1

And I'm told the sail switch is part number 1GWH6600

If anyone knows where I can get this ASAP I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks.

At this point I think I would just bypass the sail switch. We had the same problem with our Atwood when it was new and the tech instructed me on how to install a jumper wire until they could send me a new switch. I believe I just connected the 2 wires that go to the switch but I would verify with a tech first.

I did find this switch # on Amazon. It says it for an Atwood but the part number is the same.
