SOURCE: STS Turbo heat problem

Problem solved. The store FINALLY sent someone out who knows what they're doing. After about a hour of adjusting and tweaking he got it working fine. Apparently, the adjustments have to be made with the grill partially disassembled so flames can be viewed from top and bottom. Also, it needs to be load balanced with adjusting with all burners on, then with fewer and fewer burners on. Dan B.

SOURCE: Doesn't burn hot

Ok your pretty sure the grill is cooler than it should be and I'm not a cook. About the only thing I can think of is the LP regulator assuming its on LP gas. Or I remember a few years ago someone had some LP tanks out that had water in them and they were recalled.

Assuming the Gas IS LP, and the quality of the GAS is 99.99% like it should be it just leaves the regulator, or the machine (if new) was made for a differant type of fuel.

If the machine is older than a year or so there could be spider webs blocking the air inlet to the mixing chamber and causeing incomplete mixing with air/oxygen thus not buring hot (or clean in some cases). Follow the tubing from the tank and on to the knob. somewhere around the knob/valve area you will see the mixing area where air is drawn in. Incomplete combustion is the result of not enough air or wrong type fuel or wrong pressure more noticable and associated with high pressure. Low pressure is what you seem to be discribing and I would check my regulator. This can be checked by an expieranced person as you or me who have seen a good LP flame before. Blue with lighter blue tips and feathers and finally a faint plasma area. NO yellow or orange in any apprecaiable quanity and deffinately NO Smoke or soot. Any of these signs appear take this thing back where you got it and get another or to a repetuable LP retail sales jobber (NOT Wal Mart or Lowes). Some grills have been made for Natural Gas and if on LP I think it would be yellow and sooty.

Finally if the burner can be taken out it may not be alined with the feeder tube or other internal parts. If it has blown over during a storm, knocked over by a dog or kids or something look for this type of problem.

(If you decide to change the regulator yourself DO NOT USE ANY PIPE DOPE OTHER THAN THAT IS APPROVED FOR USE WITH LP GAS. DO NOT USE TEFLON TAPE WITH LP GAS OR ANY DOPE WITH TEFLON IN IT, Teflon is a byproduct of Petrolium and LP is a great solvent so it wont last).

Hope tiese little things help you decide what to do or what is wrong. Please let me know If I need to expand. Rate me as high as you can and thasnks for using fixya.

What are the operating pressures on an Armstrong Concept 10 scua24 A/C


Didn't help ya huh Wayne?? We are in the temperature control businesses, temperature is what's important, not pressure. The hotter something is the more pressure it has. On a satisfied home, I will say 75 degrees, your evaporator coil should be around 40 degrees. 40 degrees with r22 is about 65 psi. 40 degrees with 410 is about 125 psi. Head pressure, your condenser temperature, will vary depending on the time of day. The hotter the temperature, the higher the pressure. R22, 200-225-240...R410a, 300-325-350. Keep in mind, the hotter the house, the higher the pressure. Hope this helps!!

I just hooked up my new tank to my barbecue grill, than turned on grill and tank,but no propane is comming out of burners. It is 30 degrees outside.


This happens no matter how cold it is outside, First turn the tank off, then turn the barbecue grill burners on for a couple of minutes with the top opened to vent out any trapped gas, close the burner knobs to the off position and slowly open the LPG tank valve to 1/4 turn, then try restarting the grill in the regular fashion. sometimes we cause a vapor lock situtation in the regulator by turning the grill on first before opening the LPG tank valve, the newer tanks are supposed to detect a freeflowing valve and close themselves off internally. This should remedy the issue.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

The grill only reaches 200 degrees


PROBLEM
Barbecue temperature only
reaches 250° to 300° in the HIGH
position.

CHECK
The excess flow safety device,
which is part of the barbecue to
cylinder connection, may have
activated.

CURE
To reset the excess flow safety
device turn all burner control knobs
and the cylinder valve OFF.
Disconnect the regulator from the
cylinder. Turn burner control knobs to
HIGH. Wait at least 1 minute. Turn
burner control knobs OFF. Reconnect
the regulator to the cylinder. Turn
cylinder valve on slowly. Refer to
“Lighting Instructions”.

Since 1995 all regulators (the part that attaches to the gas tank to regulate the flow of gas) have included a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a gas leak. This safety device can be inadvertently activated in two ways, putting the grill into what is commonly called “bypass”. The first way for the device to be activated is to leave one or more burner control knobs in the “ON” position when the LP cylinder valve is opened. The second is not to wait long enough to “start” the grill after opening the LP cylinder valve. The safety device in the regulator is activated each time that the LP cylinder valve is opened. The device resets itself when the gas pressure equalizes between the closed burner control valve and the regulator, through the hose. If a burner control knob is turned on before the gas pressure can equalize, the device will remain in “bypass”. The length of time necessary to wait to “start” the grill after turning on the LP cylinder valve is dependent on the length of the hose and outside air temperature. It is always good practice to wait a few seconds after opening the LP cylinder valve before turning on the burner control knob to start the grill.
Keep in mind that the safety device reacts to a gas leak. If a grill is in bypass, the gas connections and hose should be tested for leaks with a soap and water solution.
If the grill is in bypass, after checking for gas leaks do the following to get the grill out of bypass:
To reset the gas safety device:
Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn your burner control knob to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit, then
4. Disconnect the hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn your burner control knob to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, and then turn the burner control knob to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the hose to the LP tank.
Re-lighting the barbecue:
1. Open the barbecue lid.
2. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve all the way and wait 1 minute.
3. With the lid open, turn the burner control knob to the HIGH position.
4. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
5. Close the barbecue lid.
6. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
When you are done grilling:
1. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
2. Turn off the LP tank valve last.
* Always follow the re-lighting instructions whenever you use the adapter hose and larger tank.
