GE Water Heater
Hey Guys, need some help here. My parents water heater just died. Gas valve/temp control failed. Its a 6 year old GE tank
All of my local parts guys are gone for the weekend and I would like to at least get the parts on their way so they don't have to take cold showers for very long. Any info? A dealer with weekend hours would be great.
PS I do have my gas license, so that is not an issue.
so its a std gas fired 40 gal tank?
forget fixing it, have em call one of them franchise places like Mr. Waterheater.

It might be less money to replace the whole tank. The same thing happened to me when I bought my first house. A new gas valve/temp control wholesale was only 10% cheaper than a new tank. In 1977 a new tank was only $125.00. And that one only lasted 7 years.

Check the warranty, I believe GE have a 6 year warranty. Lowes is a GE distributor, and they would have the replacement valve.
