Dryers draw a lot of power...because of that, wiring and connectors get warm or hot and expand....eventually it causes loose connections and it starts to arc....you must open the back of the dryer and take a look at all the wires to see if you see any that are melted, black and so on....also check for loose connections where wires are bolted or screwed down...make sure everything is as tight as possible....and all connections are clean and have no burn marks or corrosion....it should work fine after that...And I WARN you now....unplug the dryer from the wall......If you do these checks and repairs with the plug still connected.....and it happens to short out on you...it could KILL you.....so UNPLUG the cord....good luck

Jandy lite 2 pool heater will not stay lit.


I'm having the same issue as the above user with Jandy Lite 2 (which from what I can tell stands for the number of times that you can get this POS to work annually)!
The unit LIGHTS OFF, but WON'T STAY LIT! Igniter engages, gas valve opens, unit lights, burns for 10 seconds, and flames out. Error code FL 2, after third attempt, already replaced the flame sensor....
