Well per instructions ive held down the gas button at the most 90 seconds while I click on the igniter.. I'm afraid to do more than 90 seconds since I dont want the thing to blow up and ruin my pretty face..
I've done this about 5 times now and the status light won't come on at all..
There is gas coming through because I hear it and I kinda loosen up the gas line and was able to smell a it.. Plus my water heater and furnace kind of share the same gas line and my furnace fires up fine.. I was thinking of lighting it with the torch light but per instruction it said not to try it.. I've never messed with a water heater before.. 5 days ago I didn't know squat about them.. I mostly work on cars but have never messed around home appliances...
