Atwood hot water heater

Recommended Posts

Hot water heater fires up good, runs about 10 min, shuts down.... ill wait a few min. Then it fires right back up, but will only run about 2-3 min then shuts back down again....it's a 10 gal. Atwood... I'm thinking thermostat, any thoughts??

Sounds like the over temp limit switch. jumper it for a few minutes to see if it stays running.

 

Is the water getting HOT and it is just shutting off because it is up to temp??

Have you tried moving the thermostat up and down a few times? Oxidation sometimes can cause inacuracy, just moving the dial will on occasion clear this condition for a little while. Yes the thermostat is the most likely culprit.
