Our Maytag Neptune gas dryer is exhausting a natural gas odor now... This smell only occurs when it has been running for awhile and never when it's turned off. Also, it ONLY smells outside the house via...


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

We just had new Rheem Natural Gas Furnace


Hello. yes there is a 2 second delay and when the conditions are just right you can smell gas. Although this is not dangerous or a health risk, you could run the exhaust pipe up in the air a few feet to get rid of the smell. Regards, Joe

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating


The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

I smell gas when the dryer is on. More so when


You got a loose connection on your dryer.  Turn off the gas line going to the dryer. Get you two pipe wrenches and disconnect the gas line going into your dryer.  Go to Home Depot and get the yellow pipe thread tape made for gas lines.  Clean the threads and then wrap the threads a few times around your gas dryer pipe.  Re-secure the gas line and snug up the connection real good and tight but don't go all ape **** and strip the threads.  Turn back on the gas line feeding the dryer.  Go get you some liquid dishwashing soap and put a little in a container with water.  Swish it around a bit to produce some suds.  Then take you a sponge and put it in the container so it will absorb some of soapy dish water.  Then squeeze some of it around the gas connection you just made.  You will know you got a good connection if the bubbles just sit there and drip down.  You got a gas leak if the bubbles start blowing up and around, which means more thread tape or tighten the connection up another quarter turn.

For further assistance, refer to section on Gas

check all pipe connections (internal & external) for
gas leaks with a non-corrosive leak detection fluid.

Dryer smells of natural gas


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.
