    Default Sears Power Miser 12- Similar Symptoms as the stickied Whirlpool Flamelock ?

    Hi All -

    I have a Sears Power Miser 12, circa. Late 2006 model.
    It just started doing this where the pilot light goes out.
    I light the pilot, then turn up the temp. It looks like it brings the water to temp and then the pilot goes out . So for the past day, I've been doing the same old routine pilot-boil water and then in between errands and stuff, follow the same routine.

    In search of a fix, I came across this thread.
    On the famous thread sticked for the whirlpool, would the fix possibly be applicable as per above ?

    Boiler was replaced on a whim due to leaking tank, and go figure....their xtended warranty is terrible. The earliest appt I could get from them is 2 weeks out.

    Don't laugh but my previous copper boiler was like 30+ years old .

    Been looking at Bradfords online.
    When looking at specs, is the only big difference the venting systems....

    There seems to be 3-4 variants in the natural gas lines - 50 gal

    Defender Extra Recovery unit.
    Unless you can recommend a 60 gallon with a 60" H footprint max (vent stack is currently a smigen higher )....
