Cloged Intake or filter
The most common reason a State Water Heater quits working is from the pilot going out which is usually caused from a clogged intake. The good news is that it’s a simple fix especially if your State water heater is less than 8 years old.
The intake on these State Select water heaters can especially get clogged up when in the same room as a dryer. The screen can be cleaned out with a shop vac but it can be difficult to locate without draining the water heater.
