My richmond water heater quit working while I was on

Customer Question

my richmond water heater quit working while I was on vacation. I followed the instructions to reignite the pilot and restart the operation but it did not help. The status light is blinking.
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: I can't say when it quit; probably during the past week. It won't restart.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: no, unless it is something simple.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No
