Two separate repairmen listened to this story and both told me the repair would be too costly, compared with the cost of a new heater. Both told me to replace the heater and not waste my time and money on repair attempts. I am adding solar water heating panels for the pool, and plan to replace the heater in a few months.
Anyone have a short term solution I can do myself? Pushing a few buttons on an X-10 keypad is NOT all that difficult.
there was a problem with gas valves not opening when powered. I rreplaced a few of them under warranty last year and the year before
