Atwood water heater circuit board issue

The water heater in my 2005 RVisionTrail Lite quit working. I thought it was a fuse or breaker because there was zero power to the unit but I couldn't find any that were tripped or blown out. The igniter wouldn't spark, no lights on the panel - nothing. Mine is a 6 gal, combo propane electric, model # GC6AA-10E.

I took it to a shop for diagnostic and the tech tried a different circuit board. It turned on! The part would have cost double the price if I got it from him, so I used the same serial number to get this from amazon.

It turns out the wire connectors sizes don't match.. I contacted Dometic and was advised that the correct part number is 91365 (replacement for the 91226 which went bad). However, when trying to locate this part online, I see 91365 in many title descriptions for items, but when I look at the photos for these circuit boards, there is a different part number on the labels.

Has anyone here gone through anything similar and can provide their two cents on how to ensure I get the correct replacement circuit board when I order again?

thank you!

I just solved this.
There was a connector included with the 93305 circuit board I ordered. It's a shame it took me this long to figure out, but issue resolved. The water heater turns on and ignites.

Was going to ask if you had the edge board adapter

Glad you got it figured out and working.

Hot water GOOD!


Still have the OEM Circuit Board?

Run a couple of Continuity tests to verify circuit board is faulty vs just bad connections

TO TEST POWER TRACK:
Place negative lead of the multi-meter to ground (green
wire) track of edge connection and positive lead of the
multi-meter to top power (brown wire) track of edge
connection.
If no continuity, board is defective.

TO TEST VALVE TRACK:
Place negative lead of the multi-meter to ground (green
wire) track of edge connection and positive lead of the
multi-meter to valve (red wire) track of edge connection.
If no continuity, this indicates a blown valve track.

Personally I would have bought a Dinosaur replacement board, they have a better reputation than the OEM boards from any of the RV appliance equipment manufacturers. Atwood, Norcold, Suburban Dometic etc.

I ordered a replacement circuit board from Atwood and it was bad , right out of the box !
Apparently this is a common occurrence.
Dinosaur makes a much better circuit board , thatís what is in my unit now.

OP.....
1st OEM Board lasted since 2005
New OEM Board is working correctly

Issue resolved......no need to replace a perfectly good working board

Did you try the continuity tests on Old OEM Board??
