Check the glow ignitor. It is located on the bottom of the drum. You will need to remove the back panel. Then with a 5/16th wrench remove the glow ignitor look for a crack that is visible or you will see a white line all the way across one side of the glow.

I have a 50 gallon gas Whirlpool water heater that I installed March of 2005. It's a 9 year warranty. It just started to flame out this morning. I relit, then turned to warm. It started to light up,...

Hi, I work in a plumbing store and that problem you described is related to a piece called thermocoupling, its a coppery thin line that heats up and controls the flow of the gas. If not this then I would check to see if your flue pipe is a bit clogged as the heat is not able to flow up quickly enough. Another culprit can be a problem with the vent pipe on the roof, as a non properly functioning vent will let draft down to the flue pipe. Most likely I think it is the thermocoupling though. Hope this helps!

How to repair aan electrical iron


If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical chord, and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical chord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat.
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the sole plate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the sole plate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

The tools you will need are

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial sole plate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
Please rate my solution.

No heat

Check the vent hose from the lint screen all the way to the outside flapper many calls I get of no heat on dryers is from people putting stockings over the vent in the winter and then back to the vent in the summer but what happens is that they don't clean it every week or more and it now builds up in the dryer blower and when hooked back up the the vent it blows a big glob of it and it then blockes the vent, this is also very dangerous because dryer lint is very flamable. Be sure to disconect power before cleaning the hose and blower in the dryer.

I have whirlpool dryer that the heat seems to kick on and off it is gas dryer

If heats for a few minutes then cuts off (heat) , then the 2 coils on the burner valve are probably bad . OR check the vent hose to the outside for good air flow . Sometimes , a dryer is pushed too far back , and it kinks the vent hose . If coils are bad , when dryer cools down , then restarting , cool coils will heat again for a few minutes , then stop heating till they cool off again .
