Ok this is the last indicator light that didn’t work. But I have to ask about it’s function. Is this suppose to illuminate when the switch is turned on or when the burner for the water htr fires up. I found it not wired to the switch and moved it so it would come on when the switch was on. I got to thinking a few days later maybe it’s not for the switch actually but maybe for when the burner comes on, or the gas valve opens?

The indicator light is to notify you when the burner lights up then it is supposed to go off unless the burner defaults and does not light up after three attempts.

That information should be in the operators manual.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1. STOP! Read the safety information provided.
2. Turn off all electric power to the appliance.
3. Turn “OFF” gas supply.
4. Wait five minutes for gas to clear the area. If you smell gas then STOP! Follow
instructions in item B of the SAFETY INFORMATION. If you don’t smell gas, go
to next step.
5. Turn “ON” gas supply.
6. Turn on electrical power to the appliance.
7. Locate the switch plate that operates the water heater which is somewhere inside
the RV and may be similar to the ones shown in Figure 11A and 11B. Your
switch may have a different appearance.
8. Once the switch is located and depending on which switch plate; Press the rocker
switch marked “GAS”, or the plain rocker switch, or your switch so that it is in the
“ON” position. If the burner does not light, the system will automatically attempt
ignition two more times before going into lock-out.
NOTE: Each ignition cycle will have a 15 second purge before spark cycle, the red
“RESET” light on the switch plate will be illuminated during the 15 second purge and
turn off during the spark cycle. If the red “RESET” light remains illuminated after the
15 second purge AND the system has attempted ignition three times, the system is
in lockout.
9. If lockout occurs before main burner lights, the red “RESET” light on the switch
plate remains illuminated to indicate ignition did not occur. To reset the system
and attempt ignition again, press the rocker switch marked “GAS”, or the plain
rocker switch, or your switch so that it is in the “OFF” position and wait five
seconds before returning the switch to the “ON” position. The first start-up of the
water heater may require several ignition cycles before all the air is purged from
the gas lines.
10. If the burner will not ignite and remain on, the following items should be checked
before calling a service person: A. Confirm if the switch marked “GAS”, or the plain rocker switch, or your
switch is in the “OFF” position. B. Confirm if the Gas supply to the water heater is turned off or empty. C. Confirm if the Reset button on ECO is tripped. (see Figure 12)
The reset button(s) are not visible as they are behind the cover that indicates “PUSH
TO RESET”. The 12V DC ECO Switch & T-Stat is under the rubber grommet identified
as “A” in the figure and the 120V electric element ECO Switch & T-Stat is under the
rubber grommet identified as “B". These are the reset button(s) that would be visible
if the cover from Figure 12 were removed.
11. If burner fails to light, call a Suburban Service Center or a local RV service agency
