Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can
continue our conversation.
I'm not sure what device you're talking about since it's counter intuitive that tapping the gas valve would stop it from leaking by. Are the burners staying on longer than they should then go out when you rap the valve?
Or is the valve you're talking about leaking water?
Ok, just wanted to be sure we're on the same page. The numbers you gave me don't help. Do you know what series VHE you have? Can you give me a picture of the valve? You can post a picture here by clicking on the paper clip icon in the tool bar at the top of this dialogue box. You can only post from a PC or a Mac not a phone or a tablet. If that doesn’t work for you then you can upload a pic to a file sharing service like Google pics or Dropbox. Then post the “share” link to your picture here or you can email the pic to customer service but the last option can take quite a while to get to me.

What type of ignition system? HSI (hot surface ignitor)? intermittent pilot (electronic ignition)?
Ok, it's a white rodgers? has a plug in mercury flame sensor?
Ok, this control config is trouble. If that flame sensor quits it's big money if you can get one when you need it. If this was up to me I'd get rid of it and retrofit this with a more modern generic valve and pilot assembly. But if you don't want to do that you can order a replacement at any plumbing supply house that sells Weil or here online http://www.hvacpartsupplier.com/valves-c-6/36c84-258-p-23417
