    I had a gas WH at my last house
    I wish I knew what brand it was - but not expensive
    5+ years & it was still running without any maintenance
    Some things should just work

The problem is the pilot light won't stay lit. The last time when the plumbers were here it stayed lit for 45 min, then poof out. i tried several times to light it to no avail.

    Call the number on your water heater...

    Or, better yet just tear it out and bring it back to Lowes tell them you don't give a rats azz about what they say you are here to return the defective junk they sold you...

    If they don't take it back, rent their truck put it in the back and bring it in to them at a high rate of speed....

    Cut your losses go get a Bradford White...

    Sorry to bring up an old thread but this sounds like the best advice I have heard in a long time...I take it that the Kenmore FVIR is designed similar to the Whirlpools and requires the same maintenance?

    Have had the Kenmore for a month....wondering if Sears will take it back?

    Slim and none and slim just left town?

    I have a plumber I trust waiting in the wings with a BW ready to install...all I have to do is give him the word
