I have a reliance 640GORT 300 (approx 6 years old) water heater with a Honeywell WV88040B1042 gas control valve. The pilot light and status light on the gas control valve are off and I have followed the lighting instructions to no avail.

I had someone come out and recommend replacing the control valve, but I am wondering if there is a non-digital control valve that would be compatible with the existing water heater.

Also, if anyone has a suggestion as to another possible problem I'd be happy to hear it. Still trying to decide whether to repair or get a new water heater.
