Atwood water heater sooting
I have a 6gal. Atwood water that is blowing out black soot which is evident seeing the black ash on the exhaust fins and some on the paint outside of the exhaust grille and up the side of the MH. Is this something serious or is it within my ability to fix/clean without taking it somewhere? I found this on Motleyrvrepair.com "It is not uncommon to start the heater and never actually check the outside of the coach where the water heater is. You should occasionally check the exhaust of your water heater for black soot. This can be caused by several things such as LP gas pressure, a dirty orifice, a dirty burner of flue tube, a misaligned burner or burner flame spreader, bad air adjustment or an obstructed exhaust grill. You will need to use your own judgment as to whether to seek professional assistance at this point. Most people do not have the proper tools to address many of these malfunctions. Periodic servicing of the water heater will help insure the most efficent performance."
Has anyone had this problem?
