SOURCE: Exhaust glows bright red.

These bikes dont like to idle for very long. If you ride at a reasonable pace, it shouldn't glow for long. If it persists... Your jetting is too lean. Check out for a pictorial step by step how to re-jet

SOURCE: Oven does not heat. Glow bar ignitor glows but no flame.

usually this means that your ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. When the ignitor glows and NO gas flows through you need a new ignitor.

SOURCE: flame turns on only when dryer is cold, runs for

The gas valve coils are bad. When they heat up they are losing resistance to stay on.
Turn off the gas. Unplug the machine. Remove the front panel. The gas valve will be in the front right hand corner. Remove the gas valves and replace them with new valves. Please note how the coils orient on the gas valve.

SOURCE: bright glowing coil is this normal?

Yes, it is the defrost heater, that's why your fridge is frost-free.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Igniter glows bright red, gas doesn't ignite. Igniter stops glowing after about 10 seconds, dryer keeps running. Timer works, buzzer works. .

Hello. You might have defective valve coils not allowing the gas valve to open. Check to see if you have 120v at the coils. The valve assembly is nothing more than an electromagnet. When the coils are energized, they make a spring-loaded plunger withdraw, allowing gas to pass. After the current is shut off, the springs force the plunger to close off again--just like the coil of wire around a nail(battery powered when you were a kid) and you could pick up small objects magnetically. HOWEVER, you also say that the ignitor glows "bright red"--how old is the dryer? The ignitor usually glows a VERY bright orange--so brightly that you almost can't look at it! A classic symptom of a worn out ignitor is that the center glows but the rest of the glow bar doesn't. If you have an ammeter(meter that checks amperage(current), you should measure about 4 amps +/- on one of the wires going to the glow bar. There is also a flame sensor that will allow the valve to open when it senses a bright enough glow from the glow bar. If you are unsure how to check any of these devices, PLEASE call for a svc tech. I hope I gave you some insight and helped you! And yes, I'm an appliance tech.

My maytag model;HYE2460AYW has bright orange glow what is that from how do i fix it is electric front loader

I'm assuming it's a gas dryer. The glow is the ignitor for the flame. It will glow the whole time the dryer is on. This is normal.

Glow plug maybe out on 2005 f350 king ranch

2 ways to check 1) have key out of ignition, remove glow plug power rail, get ohm meter on top of glow plug where rail bolts on & base of plug where you bolt it in. check all plugs & should be similar. 2) remove plugs & hook jumper leads to battry, connect - jump lead to base of plug where it screws into the block, touch tip of plug where power rail bolts on with the + jumper lead but do not touch the heating element of the plug extremely hot extremely quick. hold power on for 5 - 7 sec until glow bright red. repeat with all plugs (faulty ones will take longer to glow or not glow at all)

My lower oven does not work. Broiler and all rest work fine? Any ideas what the problem may be? Igniter? Thanks

you are right on the money, the igniter probably needs to be replaced. remove shelves from oven. remove bottom panel. remove flame shield, Turn the oven on and examine the glow from the igniter, it should be a real bright light, and should go from off to bright in a few seconds. If the glow is slow, or no glow at all, then thats your problem.

When I light the pilot and release the know the flame goes out

1. Try holding the knob longer
2. Locate & clean the sensor, a tube that's sticking into the pilot flame. Use a green scotch-brite or steel wool then wipe with a damp paper towel.

Whirlpool gas dryer Model #WGD5530SQ0 not heating properly

If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.

My kenmore dryer does heat up all the time.

After the glow plug starts glowing a sensor detects this bright glow and turns on the gas which will be ignited by the glow plug and you have flames.

So, it could be this sensor or in the gas valve solenoids. You will need an OHM meter to check this.
