I would clean the thermocouple.

The Pilot Light on My Bradford Water Heater stays Lit butů
The Pilot Light on My Bradford White Water Heater stays Lit but the Burner Does Not Light.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you know the model of your Bradford White? Have you talked to a plumber yet?

MI40T6FBN

Contractor's Assistant: Are you getting any error codes or messages on your Bradford White water heater? How old is it?

I'll check

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Bradford White water heater? What have you tried so far?

5 flashes 3sec nothing 5 flashes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Had installer out yesterday je cleaned milivolt piolet assembly

finally had time to do clean it out and no luck it still comes back to the same error

From looking around online it's not worth it just to change out the well sensor and the best bet is to change the control valve.

Does anyone know if not to handy guy can do it themselves :-)

Thanks!

There is another thing you can check. Make sure you have a good pilot light. It should be a blue flame and engulf the thermocouple.

Just came back from my neighbors who had almost the same issue. Flame was weak so I tested the thermocouple (skip this unless you know how) for mv. It read low. Took out the pilot and blew out the tube with compressed air. Also used brake clean and blew it out again. Put it back in and worked like a charm.

I looked at the pilot and it looks good

If you want to check the thermocouple and pilot.

Probably going to need to take it apart to see what's wrong. Big brass nut unscrews.
Make sure the water is off.  :)

I hate when that is the case. Drain the lines at the lowest point in the house.
