Another Flame Lock Sucker
I have a Whirlpool Flame Lock LP water heater. Wish I didn't. Model # BFG1F5040T3PV. Bought it March 10, 2008 from my local Lowe's in Newton, NJ. The unit crapped out last Sunday. Pilot won't stay lit. Whirlpool or American sent me a box containing an entire burner unit assembly. Only needed a thermocouple. Got the new TC off the new assembly and replaced my existing. This one lit once and won't light again. Whirlpool is disappointing.

why not give a monkey a loaded revolver with the hammer
cocked back and see what will eventually happen???
and they send you the wrong parts so you can play russian roulette
with your LP water heater... I think that is just wonderful.
I wonder what kind of insurance Whirlpooh has that allows
them to send out parts to people that have never
messed with GAS water heaters before??.
either way good luck...be careful
