Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Char Broil Gas grill, and ignition has become a bit of a problem lately. I can see the electric igniter sparking, I have been able to smell LPG and keep the lid open. If it does ignite, it usually does so in a fireball fashion while removing arm hair. Is this a cleaning issue, or should I just cave and buy new parts / grill.

My Coleman furnace 4322/729 model lights the pilot but won't cut in . What could be problem ? Cleared lines Complete


Gas valve not opening? Does it have the exhaust blower that pulls vacuum switch allowing burner to light?
(1) Thermostat not working? Has to complete the circuit in or gas valve to open.
(2)Can be a stuck or bad gas valve. Try tapping the side of the gas valve body while thermostat is calling for heat. Tapping,not pounding. Like lightly,yannow? don-ohio (:^)

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?


you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.

Propane cylinder leaks


flick the little point as it may not be seating correctly. IF it still leaks attach the torch again and take it to a gas fitter and have it fixed . Remember that with gas what is in that little bottle can destroy you and your car if it is allowed to escape and ignite.
