Hello and thank you for using JA.com, I will assist you today with your question. Please accept the answer upon completion of the Q&A process.
The blower assembly continuously blowing typically results In The unit faulting and not firing to produce hot water. Most likely caused by the proving switch also located on the blower assembly. It tells the unit that the blower is exhausting properly. The switch, typically on the right hand side of the blower is usually round, has a 1/4tube going into it. You can try unplugging the water heater and resetting it first, if this does not work the. Unplugg the switch and attempt to jump it out. Typically the switch is the culprit. It may need to be replaced but jumping the switch will tell you for sure. You can also unplug the tube from the vent (leave attached to the switch) and suck on it to create a vacuum. It should click on and off. Your unit should fire while a vacuum is pulled.
One last item to check is the vent to make sure it is clear.
