Customer Question
Our Triangle Tube PT...

Our Triangle Tube PT 60 on-wall is making a loud, low-pitched sound while trying to ignite. It says that the supply sensor reading is not changing. Check supply temperature sensor and wiring harness. OK to reset starts the process over and it frequently ignites. However, 2 of the last 5 mornings we've had cold water for showers.

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

1 month. as above. Worse lately.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

For now

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

If this is a chat bot, I'm not super interested in continuing to chat. Probably good to know that. LOL. Chatbotted. I'll move on.

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.

Please ignore the intake bot. This ignition issue is best left to a pro. At a minimum the chamber should be cleaned and ignition parameters checked. The latter requires very expensive test equipment.
