    On gas hot water heater cycle a lot

    When hot water heater is on gas it cycles a lot
    Gas burner runs about 10 to 20 minutes to heat up water then off then the burner fires up about ever 3 to 5 minutes after that Iím thinking to keep water at a temp
    But I was needing to know if there is a way to make it have a bigger window for starting and stopping????

    Hi Trailboss,

    We only fire up the HWH when we will be needing or using hot water, otherwise it is off.

    Good Luck

    If you want to just turn it on and let it do itís thing, you should check basic stuff first.

    1. Verify all connections are solid and good
    2. Jiggle the wires a bit and see if it changes the behavior.
    3. Check for bad ground
    4. Check all voltages and ohm readings
    5. Check airflow

    This is all stuff you can do without replacing parts

    Not too many things would cause short cycling like that

    Thermostat
    Gas tube
    Airflow
    Spark
    Gas valve
    Circuit Board

    Good Luck
