Did this video help you?

Gursharan Mudan: is there a way to check curcuit board, i have no ignition , i have gas and a good ground, the connection and the fueses are good
...thanks

Justin Vandevanter: I have the newer version of this water heater and my fuse on the board keeps blowing as soon as you turn it on gas. It was working on the electric. Any help on this would be appericated

tyre bateman: Hey Don. Awesome video. I have an atwood water heater that is only a year old. It worked fine last year. This year it started up and ran for about an hour and blew the 2A fuse. Now I put a new fuse in and as soon as I flip the switch it blows the fuse. I have looked over all the connections and everything looks good. No corroded or burnt wires anywhere. Any ideas?

john hernandez: I have a question. My water Atwood water heater clicks and ignites but only stays lit for a few seconds then shuts off. It does this type of cycle 3 times then the red light on the switch comes on and stays on causing not to cycle anymore. What do you think is wrong with it>

Jason Newell: great video! i got one for ya, i have an Atwood gc6aa-10e. will not start at all with just Lp switch set to on. makes 2 faint clicks and dsi light comes on. now if i leave the LP switch set to on and switch on the electric switch also the LP gas fires right up. but will only run when both are on. the electric side works like it should.

Rosanna Moss: "Sparky-Sparky" You're adorable! I'm having trouble concentrating...are you married? Sorry:) my water heater isn't even ticking, HELP!

BRETT YENZER1: Why do RV water heater gas valves have TWO solenoid coils? They are NOT TWO STAGE gas valves.

mud: Excellent video. i had a water leak and think i may have run my GC10A-3E with an empty tank. Is it ruined? What would you recommend as a starting point if its possible it can be repaired? Is this a "gas only" model? It looks almost exactly like the one you work on in this video. My owners manual confuses this matter by trying to cover multiple models.

jtlachappelle: Sounds like you know your stuff but we cant see a goddamn thing youre doing

Herock Hernandez: Very very very informative video. Thanks a lot tomorrow I will get into it and I'll see what the problem is

E Wade: I need a starting point. My atwood was under electric operation, there was a noticeable smell of burning briefly inside the rv. The smell cleared but now the heater does not operate by electric. The usual buzzing sound when power is on is still there but no hot water. Where should I start? A burnt fuse should not make smoke right? I see nothing scorched on the outside of the heater . Thanks for any ideas.

Terra Pulse: Help.  I admit being a newbie with my first experiences in owning a trailer.  With that said, out of curiosity, I turned on the electrical switch (not using propane) to see if the red light would come on.  It did, then it went out.  I shut the switch off, then turned it back on and same thing happened, red light went out, but what followed next was not expected... I heard a small explosion. No water in the tank, and I immediately shut the switch back off.  Did I just burn my element?  I have no idea what that "small explosion" was.  I hope I didn't create a costly mistake.  What could have caused that explosion?

P.S.  I re-watched your vid and at 8:38 I noticed when you "shadowed" the switch, it seems to be normal for the red light to momentarily turn on and then off.  My only question now is the "small explosion".  (Great vid, btw.)

Jacob C: Hey. When is the other water heater going to be serviced? That is same as mine. Mine will not light or heat electric either!

ScottDLR: Thanks very much for this. Very, very helpful!
Thanks to this video, I was able to troubleshoot a homeless vets WH (bad eco). Certainly you've made his life a bit better.

Sherry Underwood: Xx

Beth Conaway: Donald I need help so bad. I have an 2003 Coachman and I have an Atwood water heater. The flame comes on strong and goes off a couple seconds later everytime. I have troubleshoot everything I could believe for it to be. Please help

Mike Willems: Ok I think your right about the dirty connection. Today I was messing around with the plug that plugs into the board. I moved it in and out abit and It actually tried to spark. So tonight I'm going to get some electrical cleaner and clean all of the connections. If that doesn't work I'm going to try buying a new plug for it if I can.

Mike Willems: Ok my issue is the water heater is getting power 12.85 to the tstat but not to the eco. Is it just the thermostat or the main switch. This heater has never worked since I bought the trailer but a week ago it actually fired up. But now it won't fire up again. Not sure why it worked the one time and now nothing at all again.

Scott R: Very informative video, but my problem is element not shutting off. Atwood GC6AA-10E that I always run on 110VAC and never on gas. The heating element does not shut off and it was scalding hot. I replaced both the Tstat and ECO, but still have the same problem. From what I understand there is nothing but a relay and element in the back of the unit inside the RV. Am I correct in assuming the board is the only thing left that is bad? Any opinion? Thanks.

helene lewis: I am not home right now but will check oven hood vent when I get there. Thank you so much for your quick response.
