NOTE: Comments will no longer be accepted on this topic after July 3, 2009. Thanks everyone so much for dropping off your thoughts and experiences!

If you have a Whirlpool Flame Lock Water heater (like model FG1F4040S3NOV I own) you are no doubt aware of the class action suit (Bowen, et al v. Whirlpool Corp., et al) whose deadline just passed. If you went to www.waterheatersettlement.com, downloaded, printed, filled out and mailed in the claim from – I think there’s a better way!

My thermocouple (the part that needed repeated replacement and probably the reason for the lawsuit) just burned out recently and its about the 6th time. But this time when I went out to buy a new one guess what? They don’t sell them any more! So I called Whirlpool’s toll-free number and the recording mentioned www.flamelocksupport.com where you can request that they ship you the flame lock replacement kit (Whirlpool calls it a “Flame Lock Enhancement Kit“) for free. Yes, I said FREE! If you don’t need it right away UPS Ground is even FREE! Those of you that want it shipped faster they offer UPS 2nd Day and UPS Next Day shipping, and you only pay for the shipping.

Regardless of how you get your free “Flame Lock Enhancement Kit” shipped to you from Whirlpool you will doubtless need to pay a professional to install it (like I did). It cost meabout $100, but I knew it worked right when the installation was done and I no longer worry about having to take cold showers any more.

Visit www.flamelocksupport.com to get your free “Flame Lock Enhancement Kit” – no more thermocouples! The new kit has DOES NOT HAVE a reset button!
