Atwood GCH10A-4E thermostats replacement
Recent trip. Had the water heater on propane. Seemed be running a long time. Then it started to cycle off and on every few minutes. Found the thermostat plastic ring broken and thermostat not touching the water tank.
Ordered a 91447 kit. The plastic rings on the new thermostats are much thicker and the springs beefer. I can't get the thermostats to reach the three tabs on the water heater face. I don't want to bend the tabs at this point. Wonder if I got the wrong kit shipped? I'm thinking about going to my dealers parts department to compare what they have. Sure looks like a flimsy mounting system.
The old thermostat have different width terminals to denote thermostat versus ECO. Original non ECO has narrow terminals. I don't see temps marked on the originals unless I'm not seeing them. New ones are marked 60C and 82C. Are the originals the same just not marked?
