    The pilot light on my hot water heater has been going out every day for the past 4-5 days.

    It is placed outside my home and I would like to keep it that way. Any suggestions on repairs?

    Hello: Can you tell us a little more about the heater? Is it the newer FVIR (flammable vapor ignition resistant) type heater, or older? If older, it is basically either the thermocouple or control. However, anything that prevents the pilot flame from properly hitting the thermocouple comes into play also.

    If it’s the new style heater (which has a sealed combustion chamber) there most likely is a problem with dust 😉

    Yours, Larry
