Failure, troubleshooting and repair: repair yourself?Valiant water heater failure

And if they were repairing rather than throwing and change? Rediscover the pleasure of the repairs yourself. How to diagnose a problem or find spare parts? Repair itself is way to save money generally!

Valiant water heater failure

Unread Messageby Gillou 30 » 02/04/20, 18:12

Hello everyone
I have a little problem, I have a valiant water heater mag 9 / 2xz in my camping car and it no longer works
when i start it the pilot light comes on without problem and as soon as i open the hot water it turns off
I tried it gently it turns on, but as soon as I open the hot water tap a little more, it turns off
I changed the membrane and cleaned the body, but nothing, still the same problem : Evil:
I hope you get an idea I am at heart
thank you in advance

This is often caused by a blocked nozzle (partially or completely). In your case, perhaps partially, or a faulty thermocouple.

It is important to check that the thermocouple is well in the flow of the pilot flame: it is one of the consequences of fouling the nozzle that causing a distortion of the flame thus preventing the thermocouple from acting.

Hello
this weekend I did a try again by bringing the thermocouple tip a little closer to the flame but nothing better always the same bp
as soon as I open the hot water a little more, the ramps will go out and go into safety : Shock:
and the nozzle is clean, I don't understand
is there a way to test the thermocouple
merci
