I’ve run across several of these valves that my Bacharach LEAKATOR 10 on the top of the control valve. This valve is the only one that I get a reading on. They usually are on Richmond water heaters (but not always) and the dates have ranged from 2002 on up over many years.
I know the R110 Gas Control Valves being recalled are installed on natural and liquid propane (LP) gas water heaters. The recalled valves were manufactured between July 25, 2005 and August 14, 2005 with production date codes 5-31 through and including 5-33, although not all valves with these date codes are affected.
I have had clients call and get replacement valves overnighted to them based on the inspection results that are NOT part of the recall. I’m just curious if anyone else has any additional info on this. See the pic.
