    Q:

    What is the part/sku # for the thermostat control box that I need to replace on my water heater GCV40-100? I'm looking at the website but not finding anywhere I can simply look up the part for this specific water heater. I also tried typing in the item number under the item number search and got nothing. Please advise, thanks!

    Q:

    Heater Model FCV-40-100
    Why my pilot keeps shutting off every 8 days.
    * We replaced the Control Valve and the pilot assembly and still doing the same thing.
    Please could you give me any advise what else can we do.
    Thank you.

      A:

      The only other potential problem we can think of is that there is an issue with the incoming gas line.

    Q:

    The water heater is leaking out of the top where the side and top connect as well as below the vent on top of the heater. Can there be too much water in it? Also, the first shower is always low on hot water, but the pilot light is still lit and the second shower is always hotter longer?

      A:

      Can't answer the first question and suggest that you have your plumber
      inspect the installation. These are warranted for 6 years as I recall.
      The second question sounds familiar as I have experienced somewhat the same
      thing. I should say that I have dual-tank installation as I have a gang of
      women in this house. They can use up hot water very fast in the morning. I
      don't think these tanks come with a top-notch thermostat or are well
      insulated for that matter, so resting overnight does let the tank water cool
      somewhat. It does recover pretty well given some time.
      These heaters are inexpensive and thus not the highest quality you can buy.
      They're contractor grade and are a good value for the price (I bought 2 from
      PEX for ~$750 shipped). I'm selling my house so I didn't want to invest
      more money in something that I would not be around to enjoy.
      Hope this helps.

    Where can we buy a thermooupler for this hot water heater? The universal ones do not fit. Thank you.

      The thermocouple is only available as part of the pilot assembly, which is part 9003542005 for this water heater.
