- A gas burner is turned on but not lit
- The pilot light has gone out on a dryer

Gas Water Heaters
The most common problems with gas water heaters are connected to the pilot light. The pilot will not light if the gas is turned off, if there is air in the gas pipe, if the pilot orifice or lines are clogged and if the gas control valve is defective. Our gas line repair San Diego team of experts can find the cause quickly if your pilot won’t light.
Some pilots will light but will not stay lit. For some reason, the gas supply gets turned off shortly after it is lit. The cause could be the thermocouple. This is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is on. If the pilot is not lit, the gas valve will not turn on the gas. Another cause could be a defective gas control valve. Sometimes the pilot will light, but the light goes out intermittently. There are several possible causes for this that our gas leak repair San Diego team can determine.
Other possible problems with a gas hot water heater are:
- Not enough hot water. This may be caused by overuse.
- The thermostat is malfunctioning
- The water heater is too small for the required use
- The burner orifice is clogged
- The dip tube is cracked or broken
