Last updated 6 years ago

The pilot light in a gas water heater can sometimes go out, which can leave your home without warm water. If you see a lit pilot light but still have no hot water, calling a professional should be your next step, but you can see how to relight one that has blown out with this video.

Watch this clip to get a step-by-step guide to opening and examining the pilot light inside your water heater, as well as a better understanding of what each component does. Removing the inner and outer covers exposes the pilot assembly, where you’ll be able to see whether your pilot light is lit or not. Relighting the pilot requires a few extra steps that you can explore in the video
