I have a new Salem 30QBSS with a manual light water heater. I have no problem lighting it but it will not stay lit. About 3 out of 4 times when the thermostat cycles it back on, when it lights it blows out the pilot light and I have to keep re-lighting it. Is there something out of adjustment that I can adjust to stop this from happening?
Mud Daubers and spiders love propane water heaters. Check for mud dauber nests and spider webs. Clean everything good and then you can adjust the air by moving the slotted sleeve until you get a blue flame and it sounds right. What does "right" sound like? It's hard to describe but you'll know when you hear it. It sounds like a low hiss.
