SOURCE: Amana 22 side-by-side refrigerator, freezer door opens slightly

There are three possibilities to this problem:

1. Door seal which should be magnetic is faulty.
2. Ice maker caddy (container) has not socketed properly into ice maker rear drive tang.
3. Door stay closed plastic hing pieces are damaged. These are tapered pieces that fit in hinge area that allow door weight to help close and hold door. Some are black in color and some are white. As far as I know they are interchangeable.

SOURCE: refrigerator side not sealing tightly when shut.

Sounds like you may need a new magnetic seal. It is worth the money to fix it, saving electric and your food items.

Good Luck

Why will gas not enter grill. brand new bottle


Some of the NEW Tanks have a Safety Valve that will LOCK CLOSED, If you open it too quickly OR If you do not have any hose hooked to the tank. Un hook the hose to the tank With the Tank Valve Closed, Then ReConnect the Hose. Make sure all other Valves are SHUT, Then SLOWLY, very Slowly open the Tank valve just a little, then a little more, then open it up. That May fix the problem.

Radio won t shut off when the drive door is open


It is because you didn't open/close the driver side door. Contrary to the RAP system on earlier GM vehicles, the accessory power will stay on until the driver side door, rather than any door.

Reliant 501 Natural Gas won't stay lit


Reliance water heater?
Thermocouple is good if the pilot stays lit continuously.

501 is older model. Unknown if this unit has FVIR protection and sealed combustion chamber or open air intake on front of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Reliance-2006-Service-Handbook.pdf

With FVIR protection:
Get more fresh air to the unit.
Clean the flame arrestor screen.
Test and replace the thermocouple:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermocouple.html
Inspect and clean burner and combustion parts
Test gas pressure, bleed air out of gas line.
Replace gas control valve.
Test draft air by lighting match and see if smoke is pulled into the vent pipe at draft hood on top of tank.

The smoker burner wont stay lit on my grill. I can get it lit but it wont stay on


I had the same problem and I found that if I tightened the thermocouple line on the back of the smoker control knob it would work properly. You can see the thermocouple line brass nut thru the slotted opening just above the double doors and below the control knobs. Mine was only finger tight and as soon as I tightened the thermocouple line nut, everything worked normal. Good Luck

The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
Clean air intake screen if applicable.
Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
Bleed air out of gas line.
Check gas pressure.

I sometimes get a lot of smoke in my large BGE. It makes the food taste too smoky.


If you're not intending to use the your Egg as a smoker for some foods and are attempting to grill them instead, you should leave the top open.

If in fact, you're using it as a smoker, you need to open the lower damper door a bit more and open the top vent a bit more too. That way, the smokey flavor should not be that over powering. But, keep you eye on the thermometer, as you don't want the temp to exceed 250 degrees F, if you're smoking food.

Hope this helps you and Happy GrillingII Thanks for choosing FixYa.

there is two bolts oin the very front of the unit behind the kickplate the oiu can turn clock wise until there is a slight tile toward the back of the unit so that the cams on the doors will have a little bit of gravity to helop them stay shut.
