Purchased 87 Sunline Saturn recently and doing some renovations.
Can't get the hot water heater pilot to light. It's an ATWOOD G6A 3.
Have removed the air shutter and cleaned off the gas valve with fine sandpaper as recommended but I don't think any gas is coming into the gas valve. I don't smell any and the pilot doesn't light.
Any experiences with this type of water heater and other things I can check?
Yes, I have gas in the tank & it's on.
I'm familiar with the lighting procedures of heaters that have a thermal coupling so I know to hold the control in the 'pilot' position while trying to light it.
Thanks for serious suggestions.
