Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.

Problems with a clothes dryer normally involve the heat source or the motor that tumbles the clothes: clothes don't dry because it doesn't get hot enough or the drum doesn't rotate.

Vehicle smells like natural gas after stopping when vehicle is hot


I think you are getting a rotten egg smell,not natural gas. I would check for exhaust leaks from the catalytic converter for starters. Have you checked the grill at the base of the windshield and on top of the firewall? folks have been known to drop eggs down there as a prank.

Hi,

The burner is not lighting right...


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

You have a leak somewhere in your gas system, Either from the gas valve or some other tubing. In this situation unless you understand how it works I would recommend getting a tech out to look at your system. That way you know that it is being done properly.
