we have a bradford white hydrojet 2003 50 gal water heater that's not staying lit. We follow the instructions to light it, holding the red button down with the gas in pilot position, light it, hold the button for one minute.. let go.. the light goes out.. we have repeated this several times. we.. I mean my husband.. can see that one of the fins on the gas burner has melted off and it's over the area of the pilot. Not sure if any of it fell into pilot or what is going on. can you shed some light on this.. OH WISE ONE.  *bows*

need to clean the thermocouple bulb and be sure it is positioned in the flame-if there is debris on the pilot burner,this will redirect the flame around the bulb-

Your wisdom is beyond compare! thankyou very much. My husband replaced the thermocouple completely and all is working fine and dandy now. . He did take a wire brush to it first but that didnt work.. so off to OSH and seven dollars later.. wa-la... . this is a wonderous forum.

This worked for me too.  My thrmocouple had split at the end.  Once I knoew what to look for, the fix was quick and easy.  $7.50 for the repair and 15 minutes of time plus a dive to OSH (I can think of worse places to go) and I was done. 

 

Thanks again for the great forum.
