Does gas leak when the pilot light goes out on a heater?
October 10, 2008 2:10PM
No it shouldn't, There is a sensor that turns off the gas if the pilot flame goes out, The only way it would leak gas is if it as a faulty sensor, or a peice of depree gets in the gas line

Your water heater went off and does not want to turn back on?
Gas or electric? Gas If you have a pilot light but it will not light, the thermocouple is most likely bad. That is the small metal tube that sits in the flame of the pilot light and runs to the control valve. If the pilot light will not stay lit, thermocouple also. The thermocouple is about the only thing that goes wrong with a gas heater besides a leak. Electric Breaker tripped and will not reset. One of the heating elements is burned out and shorting out. Could be either one, but I would look at the top one first.

What to Do About a Water Heater Leaking?
A leaking water heater is not something to ignore. If water extinguishes the pilot light on a gas heater, the danger of explosion is present along with the water damage. First determine where the water leak is occurring, so you can see if you are facing a DIY job or calling for an emergency plumber. If the emergency water relieve valve is leaking, turn off the water heater and turn on a hot water faucet in the house. When the tank is drained, follow the troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual. Call a plumber to replace the water heater.
