Why won’t my water heater fire up?


Henry Johnson, Plumbing Expert

There could be several reasons why your water heater won’t fire up. One common issue is a faulty pilot light, which may need to be relit or replaced. Another possibility is a malfunctioning thermocouple, which is responsible for detecting the pilot light’s flame and signaling the gas valve to open. Other potential causes include a clogged gas line, a faulty gas valve, or a malfunctioning control module. If you’re not comfortable troubleshooting these issues on your own, it’s best to call in a professional plumber to diagnose and repair the problem. At 5 Star Best Plumbing, our specialists are experienced in water heater repair and can help get your appliance up and running again in no time.
