gas hot water tank
Im having a promlem getting an A O Smith gas hot water tank to relight . I have replaced thermol couple and after doing so it cycled thru once by heating up water. But then after water was hot the burner shut off and so did the pilot. I was only able to get the pilot to light only when holding the red pilot light button b ut as soon as i let go the pilot goes back out . I have cheked the fresh air intake in the bottom of tank and that is clean . Was wondering if the FVIR sensor was bad and if so how to test it ?
