It takes about 5-10 minutes to light the pilot on my hwh. I usually sit there on the chair and hold it. Once it goes on its fine. No issues with other appliances. Fridge is right on top of it, no issues there. Someone suggested a "lazy" thermocouple. Any ideas?
Ykdave, are you thinking there is a leak? As i said in my original post, my fridge and stove are within 2-3 feet from the hwh and they work fine on propane?no delay etc.
It takes a while to get the pilot going initially.
