I have a LG dryer model dlgx3002w not heating.


It sounds like you didn't install the ignitor properly. Try re installing the ignitor, because it's opening the gas valve saying it's hot enough to light, but if it's out of position, it won't create proper combustion.

When turn oven on can see the igniter coming on.but it doesn't light.can smell the gas


You need to replace your igniter. Very common replacement part.Igniters can look ok but can be failing and not drawing enough amps to open gas valve . Disconnect power before attempting.

hope this helps

WE SHUT OFF THE GAS TO THIS STOVE SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AND ARE READY TO RELIGHT THE STOVE NOW. WE CAN NOT FIND THE MANUAL AS TO HOW TO DO THAT. WE ARE CONCERNED MAINLY ABOUT THE OVEN AS IT SAYS IT IS A...


You should be able to just open the gas ****. That will supply gas to the gas to the stove. Once you've opened the gas ****, wait about 60 seconds and turn on one of the burners. The electric ignition should work to ignite the gas and you'll have your flame. If you smell a strong odor of gas, DO NOT use the electric ignition until the gas odor diminishes. In other words, when you first smell gas, you can try lighting it. If the smell of gas becomes strong, you DO NOT want to light anything in the area because an accumulation of gas can lead to an explosion. Be very careful.
If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my suggestion.

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

No heat..revolves, blows ok...is there a fuse that shuts off gas?


Theres a fuse that shuts off the igniter. It can be the igniter or thermal fuse. If you see the igniter glowing but no gas coming out replace the coils on the gas valve. If that fails replace gas valve

Gas smell during startup of GE hot water heater


yes, provided there is no excessive build up. The gas and air mix must be right before the mixture will ignit. a household stove will do this each time it's turned on. That's why yhe igniter sparkk hits about three times before it lights. proper venting will confine any fumes to the cimbustion chamber to be carried out the exhaust. If the odor is strong then have the appliance checked for safety sake.

Gas Dryer won't stay hot


There is a thermoelectric eye that says it is OK to keep the gas burner on. If this sensor is defective or blocked from "seeing" the gas flame is properly lit, it will turn off the gas flow (safety) override solenoid. With the unit unplugged make sure that the optical path on the upper right (1:30 CW position) flame tube inside sensor window is clean. The rattle you hear is probably the safety gas shut-off solenoid engaging. If you need more help, please ask -- SWT
