Water Heater (electric)

QUESTION FROM EazyMoney

My waterheater pilot light keeps going out. Its an electric switch to light the pilot. Atleast twice a day this happens and i have to wait for the water to warm back up or take a cold shower. What should I do? Why does it keep going out?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear EazyMoney: I would suggest that you have a trained profession inspect your water heater and vent system. The problem with your pilot light going out on your water heater could be caused by a partial blockage in your venting (soot, vent cap obstruction, etc.), or it could be a problem with your thermocouple (bulb not being contacted properly, etc.). Hope this is helpful. Home-Wizard.com
