water heater not lighting
I am having trouble lighting my water heater in my 86' Satallite. I can get the pilot light to take, but when I switch over to the "on" position to ignite.... it back flashes and catches on fire at the flame adjustment part. Could this be simply spider webs or bees nest in the ignition tube? Or is it in need of adjustment? I am fairly new to trouble shooting an LP water heater.
Thanks in advance!
