SOURCE: Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE, flame wont stay lit.

Clean/repair your dryer vent. The flame when it exits the funnel should not touch or just barely touch the funnel end. This indicates good airflow. A good test for the clogged/damaged vent is to disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and run it as is. If the flame stays - clean vent. If not - clean air path inside the dryer

SOURCE: i have a norcold 3163

I have the same model refrigerator in my 1999 Eurovan. Before you leave for your trip, if you haven't used the refrigerator for some time make sure it will light before you leave and run it for awhile. This will help insure it will light when you are camping. A good trick I learned is to light one of the burners on the stove for a minute before you switch the refrigerator to propane. That seems to help. Also, don't release the ignitor button on the refrigerator until 15 to 20 seconds and then do so VERY VERY SLOWLY . One other trick is set the cooling dial in a different position than the "Start" position. If that doesn't work then turn it back to the Start position. Sometimes it takes several times to get the refrigerator to light but once it is it will stay on.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Laars pool heater's burner wont stay lit


Check the burner, the holes may be plugged, especially at the beginning of the season. Same happens to the pilot light tube. Spiders love to make nests inside those small holes clogging everything up.

My 30,000 btu Blue Flame gas wall heater wont stay lit, pilot light stays lit but the blue flame went out and had smell of gas I shut off the gas supply but, dont know what is the problem thanks, marty


you could have a overdraft problem causing your flame to go out. check your draft setting at the burner and make sure it's not open too wide. If it is, simply close it it slowly and make sure that the flame remains totally blue.

My furnace lights but only stays lit couple sec can hear a click then goes out


Sounds like it is not proving flame, to check you need a meter that will read DC microamps. without knowing the brand I can't say what you should be looking for. Trane furnaces need at least 1 DC microamp to prove presence of flame. Usually you will see 2 - 2.6 or so, but it depends on what the manufacturer specs to prove flame. At minimum you can pull the burners out and clean them really good (especially the cross-over wings) because if the flame doesn't roll down to the sensor fast enough during the trial for ignition it will recycle and eventually lockout. If it stays lit longer than 20 sec, it most likely is proving flame and cycling off on high limit because the blower is not coming on. The typical blower on delay is 45 sec from the time flame is proved to when the blower is energized

Igniter keeps going out on LP dryer


Look at the gas control box. Inside this box has a valve to open the gas so it can sustain the burner. This valve is control by the voltage of dryer sensor. This thermocouple is near the ignitor.. If this fails, there would be no voltage to open the valve. Here is how it looks like: 7f43321.jpg
