Customer Question
Hi, I have turned...

Hi, I have turned my Kelvinator 26 hot water gas off to do maintnance. I think i also turned the gas off. Now there is no hot water.

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

Only since I turned the water back on. Could the pilot light be off?

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

Yes.

Here is a link to the owners manual which shows the procedures to getting your system running again. There is no pilot light that requires lighting. The system must detect water flowing in order to work. It must also be receiving the proper voltage and if you have a remote it must be turned on.
