    Default FG6140T403NOV Pilot won't light on American Water Heater

    Model Number: FG6140T403NOV
    Brand: other
    Age: 6-10 years

    A couple weeks back the pilot went off on this unit but I was able to restart. It went out again this morning and it would not relight this time. Is this likely a flame sensor or ignitor. I wanted to pick up the most likely faulty parts on the way home so I'm just looking for a recommendation.
    Thanks

    I was able to resolve this issues by resetting the thermal switch and cleaning the screen at the bottom of the tank. Thanks

    Glad to hear that fixed it.

    If it keeps happening, then I'd get the Pilot and Igniter Assembly.
