My water heater is limping along on its last breath so I unplug it and occasionally try plugging it in to see if I can get warm wawa it will try to light three times before it gives up, recently it has not worked after the third attempt. I was feeling rather icky so I was going to have a cold shower tonight, I just thought let’s try the water heater plugged it in and after the first attempt to light it started. I am so happy I get to have a warm shower tonight!!!
*edit; it is taking forever for this water heater to warm up the water. I have to realize that it was also empty and cold before.
