Try this, You will find on the opposite side of the ignitor their is a flame rod with a wire connected to it.Remove it and clean it with sandpaper and re install it and it should fix the problem.If this is dirty it won't sense ignition and the board thinks that is it introducing raw gas into furnace and it isn't igniting and shuts off as a safety precaution.If you see a blueish tinge on the flame rod you should probably replace it.

Why does the dometic take so long to wash


Hello KAREN DOWLING,

The number 1 reason new generation washers take
EXTENDED times to wash... is the operators
FAILURE to read & heed the need to use te new
HIGH EFFICIENCY DETERGENTS... ("HE").

It may take a while to restore your machines efficiency if this has been going on for a while... USE of common detergents overpowers the sensors that are critical to the
PERFORMANCE of the "HE" washers and it takes
good hot water and proper cleaning agents to restore that efficiency.

There are remedial cleansers that can be purchased and used ...
or the machine my simply NOW NEED REPAIR.

It is ALWAYS best to follow MANUFACTURES
instructions...

The "HE" instruction was not a SUGGESTION...
It was a MANDATE.

Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

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

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.

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.

My deLonghi dehumidifier no longer dehumidifies. The device appears to be functioning OK but is not taking a drop of moisture into the tank. Previously, it filled in about 48 hours.


Hi, Soorry for the delay in the respones but I was stuck in a factory job the last few days.
When this happens usuall either the compressor is not running or the unit is packed with dirt. Can you tell me if you hear the compressor kicking on? I will look up this model and cover all the bases for you. The sysytem is slow on resposnes right now but I will keep on top of this with you till se get it going. Alsocheck the tank for a pluggage in the drain tube.

Flashing re co


Re Co stands for Recovery Mode. That means if you have programed your thermostat to be at say 72° at 5:00 then it should kick on in Recovery Mode several minutes before 5 in order to reach that temperature. This is normal and doesn't indicate that something is wrong, just that your thermostat is trying to reach or recover the programed temperature.
