What is the most common problem with a gas water heater?


Henry Johnson, Plumbing Expert

The most common problem with a gas water heater is a faulty thermocouple. This component is responsible for detecting the pilot light and ensuring that the gas valve stays open to heat the water. If the thermocouple is malfunctioning, the gas valve will shut off, and the water heater won’t produce hot water. Other common issues include a clogged burner or vent, a leaky tank, or a malfunctioning thermostat. If you’re experiencing any of these problems, it’s best to call in the specialists of 5 Star Best Plumbing for water heater repair services.
