water heater repair

Recently when trying to use our water heater the burner would light however, the flame wasn't the normal blue flame that it normally had. We had good electric so used that until I had time to check it out.

Today I removed the burner tube to give it a good cleaning. What amazes me is the fact that it didn't look that dirty however, after a good cleaning it now lights & burns fine. Never knew they were that sensitive.

A happy dance is called for!
