    Help – subject says it all. The red button that you push down for some reason will not let me push it down in the Pilot lite mode but I can in the on mode.

    I noticed the rest of my post did not get up there. I replaced the thermocoupler and can lite the pilot in on mode but not pilot mode. The unit will not kick on to heat the tank.

    It sounds like your gas valve is broken. I wouldn’t take anymore chance with it and replace it. This type of failure is unusual and the few times I have seen it was from forcing the top knob. If your heater is less than 6 years old you can get a new valve for free.

    Thanks,I went down one last time and as I was turning it back to the on position when I went slightly past the on button everything fired back up. That would lead me to believe the valve button is very sensitive and as you say may need replacing. Right now it is working so I have my fingers crossed.
