SOURCE: low flame on 3 main burners. model GBC730W

Mike, I had this problem with my grill once or twice. Like most of us grilling men we turn the grill off at the tank trying to be safe. Sometimes, like in my case, I do not turn the nobs back to the off position. When returning to the grill the next day or week the first thing we do is turn the gas on leaving the nobs on, then lighting. Every time I do this my flame never gets full or does not reach full temp. To resolve this: turn everything off including the nobs, then turn the gas on, wait a minute or two. Turn the nobs to full and ignite. It should be at full flame then, adjust from there. I hope this is helpfull.

SOURCE: where do i put my wood chips? under the heating

Buy some lava rocks from your local hardware store. Get just enough to cover the coil with 1 layer of rocks. This will help control and retain the heat produced by the coil. Now, just throw a couple chunks of pre-soaked wood on top. I recommend hickory or cherry...never mesquite, it is way too harsh for slow smoking. Happy smoking!

SOURCE: gas furnace, main burner ignites the other 2 don't. then shutdn.

Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

SOURCE: smoker will not heat. do

Most Likely your having the same problem I keep coming across , The female connector where the heating element plugs in has either come off or has burned off do to inadequate gauge wire at the connection , you will have to remove all the factory rivets on the back and replace this connection then replace the back using appropriate sized screws to replace the back , you can email me at stevennwendy09@comcast.net if you need further instructions , I have fixed 6 of these with the same problem

My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem


Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.




Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number


Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.


Dryer Igniter


If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.


Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.


Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor



Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.


High Limit Thermostat


Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.


Cycling Thermostat




The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.


Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is
defective.


Timer
The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

Masterbuilt Smokehouse model 20070712 won't smoke wood chips at 225 degrees


I had this exact same problem with my Masterbuilt Smokehouse even when brand new. I notice there is some variability in the space between the top surface of the heating element and the bottom surface of the wood chip box. I measured about 1/4 inch between the two surfaces when the heating element was seated bottomed out and touching the wire grill below it. What I did to fix the problem was to gently (make sure everything is completely cold before doing this) lift up the end of the heating element farthest away from where it enters the enclosure just a little bit so that when you put the woodchip box in where it is supposed to go, the top surface of the heating element will now be in contact with the bottom surface of the woodchip box. This arrangement allows much greater heat to heat the wood chips during the part of the heating cycle when the heating element is on (naturally the heating element cycles on and off to regulate whatever temperature your are targeting for your food being cooked). Now, because of this contact, every time the heating element comes on, enough heat will enter the woodchip box to keep the chips ignited. My next step is I am going to put a small 1/4 inch thick piece of metal beneath the heating element and the rack that is under it to force the heating element to stay sitting 1/4 inch higher so that it is always in contact with the lower surface of the woodchip box. Making these improvements allowed me to continuously get smoke when the big smoke box was at 225 degrees F.
Without making this fix, the unit would stop producing smoke at 225. Hope this makes sense and helps you.

Do you put the wood chips directly on the heating element?


Hi bobsbbq3u...

I am sending you some smoking information on how to use your smoker..
Please take time to rate me
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To use your Brinkman Smoker or Other Smokers

1... Marinate or place a rub on the meat you will be smoking, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
2...Cover your wood chips with water(and if you wish you can add some Jim Beam Whisky or other flavorfull liquids in a bowl with the water, 1 inch above the wood chips and use a flat peice of metal (pie pan,etc.)to weigh the wood chips down underwater.
You will do the wood chips at least 24 hrs before you plan to start smoking this gives the wood time to soak in the flavorfull liquids.
3...Start a fire in the smoker having the fire below the meat, but do not put the meat on yet, wait till the flames die down first.
Once they are coated with gray ash, you can place the meat on the racks and add your soaked chips to the smoker.
I would place an aluminum drip pan under the center portion of the cooking area on your smoker, to catch the juices from the meat if you are not using a water pan in that position.
4...Place the meat in the smoker on the grilling surface, and place the wood chips over the charcoal and hardwood in the main grilling area Close the lid and do not open it unless you must add wood chips during the cooking process.
5...Continue adding wood chips to the tray as needed during the time you are cooking.
If you have a Brinkmann or other smoker with one chamber for placing the wood chips and the meat, add wood chips only once per hour.
6...Apply your sauce to the meat one hour before the meat should be done.
Test your meat with a thermometer for for an internal tempreture of 160 degrees for medium and 170-180 degrees for medium well to well
Note: Apply the sauce quickly to avoid loosing the heat in your smoker if you leave it open too long it will allow the heat and smoke to escape, increasing the cooking time.
Close the lid if it needs to continue cooking till you reach the right internal tempreture
7...Test your meat with a meat thermometer after a few hours of cooking time.
Make sure your meat is at least 160 degrees internal tempreture for medium and more than 170 degrees for medium to well.
Close the lid and maintain your heat if it needs to continue cooking.

We have the masterbuilt 700 series digital smokehouse. The wood chips are no longer burning - we have no smoke. Is the repair easy and cheap?


You probably have a bad heating element, Turn the unit on then turn your digital heat to 275 and open door the heating element should become cherry red. If it doesn't then you have a bad heating element. If you do not get a digital readout then you probably have a bad digital control panel. Both of those parts can be replaced, however i do not know the price for either of those parts. If you have neither working then you may have a short or broken wire that is not making a full curcuit. Good Luck

The difference between the flame bowl and water bowl


You want the wood chips above the heat source and then the liquid above that. The heat source smolders the wood whilst the liquid keeps the meat moist. Remember you want a very low heat.

The heating element does not operate -doesn't heat


How true: I love this smoker but until the heating element doesn't work. I am on my 3rd one now. Each have had the heating element go out. Luckily the 1st 2 smokers I took back to where I purchased them and they "Cabalas" gave me a new one "NO questions asked". Now I have this 3rd smoker. Guess what! Not heating again. I decided to take this thing apart myself and investigate the problem. Since the unit is all sealed I need a Drill, dremal cutting tool to open up the backside to get at the heating element and wiring. What I found was that the CONNECTOR to the heating element was BURNED up. All wiring was fine! I believe MasterBuilt is not putting in a high enough temp connector and also the connector looks to me of dissimilar metal which will cause metal breakdown when heated. I then went to Ace Hardware and found some High temp connectors and replaced the originals. All working now!
My friend has the same smoker with the same problem ... He called Masterbuilt and got the song and dance and how much it would cost to fix - so went out and purchased a Different Brand. Knowing that I had fixed my smoker I ask him if I could take his apart .... Well and behold ..... It had the same CONNECTOR problem. I wish I had my 1st 2 smokers back to check those out also. But my theory is that they also had the same problem.
Here is 1 more problem I have seen with this Smoker ... I store my smoker on my deck all seasons (covered up when not in use). During the winter when it is cold out my smoker control panel will not come on. It always works when it was warm out. So what I have found is if I take the control panel off and bring it inside to warm up .... Then reinstall it all works fine! My theory is that the control panel has a liquid crystal that is freezing causing it not to work.
