Question about Ducane 436 inch 2 - 2 burner Grill

7 Answers

Ducane gas furnace CMPE125U5B, will not start

The furnace turned off over night and would not start next morning. could hear the clicks as it tried every couple of minutes to start but no go. Finally around noon the heating kicked in and all is well. we had about a foot of snow the day before and the temps dropped to low 20's overnight. any ideas what might have caused this?

    this is a natural furnace so it was not of gas and this model furnace does not have a pilot light. somehow it has started working again so I'm wondering if the condenser hose might have been frozen or something like that-

    Thanks for this,As the furnace is now running I'm not going to touch it. Hopefully it lasts till week-end then I will check the valve but not sure how to check if issue with the pressure.Could you explain further how I can check this?

Hi there, nice to know that your furnace is back working.

The problem is not the valve itself, when the valve fails it stays closed all the time, just not opening.

The problem is the thermocouple that prevents the valve from opening when does not detect enough heat to say that the flame is on and burning stably.

Testing the thermocouple is quite easy, at temperature room it should return about 1khom with a multimeter.

You can find parts and diagrams for your furnace here.

Keep us updated on your problem.

Thanks.

The gas company is the one to call and ask about wether there was a pressure drop in your area, don't attempt to test this yourself, low line pressure mAy indeed have been the problem, hold off on the gas valve until the local utility is contacted, they will in moscase do a free check up on the furnance..

Hi
on most electrical start furnaces there is an ignitor that gets dirty. a piece of sand paper will due the trick. but don't sand too much, just enough to get the dirt off.

If you can't find it, take the panel off , look for safety button that is in closed mode hold that down and watch for it to start up again. follow the click noise to it. most of the time it is mounted next to the burners.

Thanks Jeff, hope this fixes ya!
keep me posted

It sounds like it could be a dirty flame sensor. When you hear the clicks, does the flame actually start for maybe 10 to 30 seconds then flame-out as if the gas cut out? A dirty flame sensor will not register the correct flame temp and will tell the control board to shut off the gas. The flame sensor has only one wire going to it an looks like a 4 inch piece of bare, thick, aluminum wire. To clean it, use only a piece of fine sand paper. You don't want to touch it with your fingers or use any kind of cleaning solution. Any contamination residue left on the sensor will burn then coat the sensor causing it to malfunction again. Hope this helps FixYa, if so, please remember to rate my responce. Thanks.

Clean the valve at end of PCV.

Because PCV line end might have filled with slugs .

Also chance that there is no enough pressure . Check the pressure switch .

Hope this helps .

Won't heat up above 200 degrees.


Try turning off the valve to the tank, then leave the knobs on the grill open for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the grill knobs, slowly, slowly open the valve on the tank. Relight the grill and see if it gets hot.

Did this happen after you cleaned or did maintenance? If so check to see if your unit has a temperature control that was moved. Check your manual for its location. It maybe "thinking" it is too hot and shutting down.

We just used the grill the other night went out to cook tonight will not ignite ....I can hear the gas so that is not it ...any suggestions? I am newby at all this but have been doing fine .....


Are you saying the ignitor won't light the burner(s), but you can hear gas going thru the burners?
If that's the case, try match lighting the burners. That's a good way to find out if you are really getting enough gas for combustion.

If after match lighting it, you find that burner flames remain low, even when they're turned to High. Here's what you need to do:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow Motion,
slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open, try lighting the burner farthest away from the tank first and turn
it to High. Did the burner light and the flame height looks normal? If so, light the remaining
burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look normal? If so, you solved the problem.

Remember to always turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Pleas let me know and Happy Grilling, Newby!!

Some igniters need batteries. Try calling the company and asking them. They might also be able to sell you a replacement igniter. In the mean time you can always start the grill with a long lighter or by lighting a stick and putting it near the burners before turning on the gas.

Propane gas flame is not hot. Do I adjust the air


Here is something to try if it is LP Gas:

Here is a Tip to fix a grill that not getting hot:
1. Turn the gas valve knob off. then close LP tank valve knob.
2. Unscrew the plastic hose coupling knob from the LP tank. You may hear a slight "hissing" sound as pressure is released this is normal.
3.Wait a minute then screw the coupling knob back on to LP Tank.
4.With lid open.slowly open LP tank valve.
5.Relight the grill the proper way by turning gas valve knob to ON position while turning the igniter knob at the same time.
6.After you are sure the grill is lit preheat the grill for 30 minutes.

This was called purging the line or releasing the air out of the line.

Another thing your orifice could be clogged with spiders or dirt. If it is LP gas check to make sure your hose is not kinked.

Gas burner doesn't work


Gas burners serve as the primary source of heat in a variety of home appliances: water heaters, gas dryers, and gas cooktops and ovens, and-of course-- furnaces and boilers. When the burner fails, most gas appliances are designed to stop working altogether to prevent a gas leak. As a rule, it's best to have gas burner problems fixed by your gas utility service person or a qualified heating technician, but there are a few steps you can take to avoid paying for a service call.
