The A.O. Smith ProMax heater pilot light. .

Posted

Pros: None at all

Cons: Lent and fluke issues.

My A.O. Smith heater is only 5 years old. In that short span of time I have had to have the pilot assembly replaces, serviced twice, pulled off its base and serviced, it has cost me fee to have the dryer vent cleaned as well as the fluke.   This has all been down at various times in a 3 year period. I have been told that each item is required to keep the pilot light on. I now live life constantly checking that the pilot light is on and wondering  what the next course of action might be. I do not recommend that this water heater is purchased.

Not so reiable

Cons: breaks often

I have had this heater for 3 1/2 years now and it had to be fixed 3 times already. Twice the blower unit had to be replaced and once the controller. It's going to cost me double the price originally paid soon. You have to constantly go see the indicator lights to make sure none are on, otherwise the whole thing shuts down. So I find this very unreliable. But when it works, it works fine.
