I hope you didnt blow up by now, but your to hold a pilot valve down while igniting it
and keep down for 1 minute then release then turn valve to keep the pilot to operate the valve

My fire place elecric starter won't work after running out of propane


Most likely, you need to "bleed the line". The new propane needs to travel to your fireplace, but you have a huge air pocket in there now since it ran dry. It takes forever for the air to "bleed" out through the tiny orifice of a pilot light, especially if the distance from the fireplace to the tank is far.

Mainly because LP is heavier than air. So instead of dissipating like natural gas into the atmosphere, LP tends to hang around and puddle up. That is why you always need to bubble test for leaks. On these newer tanks Mr Ralph Nader has been at work. New regulation shut down the gas internally if the gas goes out the bottle too fast. So it is best to have all valves closed and SLOWLY open the valve so you won't trip the safety device inside.

Does not heat up


Yes, the electic ignitor may be blown.
Look into the small door in front of the dryer when it tries to start. The ignitor will glow bright orange as it heats up to ignite the propane.
If it doesn't glow, then replace the ignitor.
If it does glow, then check the thermocouple position. It may have moved from its mount. The end of the thermocouple (looks like a bare copper wire) must be almost toughing the ignitor in order to sense that the heat is high enough top allow the propane to start flowing. Re-position it.
If it still doesn't start, then the propane automatic valve is broken; the valve cannot be safely fixed and must be replaced.

I hope it's just the thermocouple out of position...

Does it have a pilot light or electronic ignition. It sounds like the pilot may have gone out when you ran out of LP

Bosch dryer not heating


make sure you try it a couple of times. gas takes a long time to travel to the pipes. no way to purge the lines.

check if there is propane in the new tank, check if the valve is open, check if the propane is at the hose going to the dryer already.

tnx 4 using fixya,
