Kenmore 500 dryer


If you mean that it is not heating and stays cool, most likely the pilot sensing thermocouple needs replacing (if you have a gas drier with a pilot light) or the electronic ignition contacts need replacing (if you have a gas drier with electronic ignition). Not sure about an electric drier, but probably the heating element needs replacing, or the thermocouple sensor (most likely). None of these are very expensive.

Pilot light keeps blowing out. When I do get it working it only works for a little while and the pilot light goes out again. It seems like there is to much presure. I have regular 5 gal propane bottle...


dmartin - Unless there is a strong draft, pilots don't normally don't blow out.

What you described, sounds more like the interior of the heater needs a thorough cleaning. Especially, the pilot assembly and the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS), which is part of the pilot. Also, the placement of the gas grill tank you're using to fuel the heater, may also being playing a role in it, too.
How far away is the tank from the heater and what size gas line is running from the tank to the heater and was it professionally installed? If you live in a high altitude are (above 2000 feet) this may also, be causing the problem.

I have included a link, which demonstrates the proper way to clean a pilot assembly and the ODS sensor. This should be a big help to you.

Please let me know about my questions above and I can provide you with more information on further troubleshooting the problem.

I need to know how to replace the wick and what size wick is required, I guessed a 95mm. The dial that controls the wick wont stay turned holding the wick up so i cant light the heater. would this be due...


It possibly could, if the wick is not installed properly. Also, the height mechanism (the control knob and the gears) may have lost it's tension and will need to replaced.

However, without knowing what brand/manufacturer and model number kerosene heater you have, there's not much more I can tell you.

Have kenmore dryer the pilot is out


it probably has a glow plug not a pilot, tun on the drier and watch for 15 seconds to see if a glow is visible, Not knowing the year or type of drier makes this hard to reply to, but if you do see no glow,, check the main fuse (thermo) at the rear of the unit and replace

Gas dryer not heating up


it probably has a igniter, not a pilot light that lil hole is a check sight hole, close the door and set the drier to start , within a few seconds you should see a glow plug light up, if not,, check the main fuse in the back of the machine,, this is normally caused by a lack of flow for the drier vent and over heating

Pilot goes out when valve is turned on


If it has a wick,then the wick is dry,or is not up enough,if it is not a wick type,then the thermocouple is bad.

If the ignitor glows, and then goes out without lighting the gas, replace the gas valve coils. I'll need more information about your dryer to tell you how to do this. (model number.)
