Our gas water heater just clicks (igniter?) for a few seconds and then stops. It is not lighting and then about a minute later does it again. Is there any quick fix?

Do you have gas going to the ignitor, is the valve open, can you smell it?
Is there a spark from the ignitor that you can see, will it ignite a propane torch?
Is it wall or battery powered? If Batteries, are the batteries charged?

If I remember correctly, my water heater needs to be reset after a problem. Turn off the gas for a set amont of time, then go throuh the startup routine.

Hope this helps.

Hot water for me is not the same as hot water for the wife. Thanks for the laugh but I do not think society will start calling it a "cold water heater".

Let me try the relight procedure.

Hot water heater? That's your problem right there. What you need is a COLD water heater.
