SOURCE: Oven burner flame is low

0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL

SOURCE: Replaced gas safety valve, burner flame now too hot

Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the safety valve.Probably about 2 turns. Then adjust the air shutter to mostly open.

SOURCE: i am converting from natural gas to l.p. gas and i

Tighten down the nut on top the safety valve till it bottoms out. Then adjust it. The air shutter needs to be adjusted as well. You must do this while the oven is lit. The flame needs to creep no further than half way up the spreader. Ye must get the proper air to gas ratio and the only way to do it is to tinker away at it while the oven is lit.Crank down and flip machines are very simple to convert. NOTE: new gas safetys do not come factory set. They come tightened down (b Turning the orifice counter clockwise allows more gas , turning it clockwise allows less gas. Since the bi-metal safety is a slow opener that explains why you have a nive flame to start and then as time goes by the flap opens and allows for an overshoot of gas. tighten the valve clockwise to get the flame set as soon as you notive yellow. By the way I am sure a propane guy from your supplier would be willing to help you get it in tune if you feel a bit shakey about laying on the floor and adjusting the flames on an oven.

SOURCE: I have a Great Outdoor smoker that won't get hot.

I had the same problem with mine. I took the burner assembly at the knob apart and cleaned it and that worked for me. The grease from the meat dripped down on the gas orifice and hardened reduced the amount of gas being jetted to the burner. Hope this helps

SOURCE: the gas dryer is not getting hot enough to dry

In light of everything you checked, it sounds like you have a bad set of coils on the gas valve. When they go bad, it can take a long time between cycles. Hope this helps!

Hi i have a Rinnia Royale ETR heater and every time i run my gas hot water the heater goes out. It seems as if there is not enough gas to run both at the same time.can you help. thanks Brian

Definitely sounds like there is a gas pressure problem. Are the gas lines feeding both appliances the proper size (at least 1/2" diameter)? Are they natural gas or propane units. If propane, what's the Btu rating of the regulator on the propane tank? If it's to low to handle the two appliance at one time, that could be the problem too.

I professionally recommend that you get a Plumber/Gasfitter, to check this over, as this isn't usual, and I wonder if there are not "Other" problems too... with anything that uses Gas one has a responsibility to the entire family to have it professionally checked over, in my humble view..

Recently i got a hotwater heater installed in my home, i was told it was for natural gas and i believed the "experienced salesman". turns out they rigged a propane hotwater heater into my homes...

Those dirty crooks, Only kidding. They did the same thing to me a while back, except it was a natural gas heater with lp tank out in the yard, bought it from the gas co who services the tank, found out they ordered a dozen heaters, all of them natural gas. I said to the guy, do these need to be switched over or jetted or something? He says why, I said because it says natural gas only. It worked fine, just smudged black smoke out. He brought out another heater and swapped it out, seems you can't change the burner? Don't make sense. Anyway, I would take it back to the place you got it and say get up the coins, It cost $400 to get the plumber back to hook this thing up!! And we have no hot water. And my shotgun has a hair trigger. I would say it is dangerous enough to get his attention on the matter without going to court. Hope this helps.

What is the fuel mixture ratio?

this will run on 50-1 mix,,but i would run it on a 40 - 1 mix unless yuou use the right 2 stroke engine oil,,if you use car engine oil mix it at 40 - 1 look at it this way,,,its a 2 stroke so it needs oil or it will seize up and reck your engine,,if you put a little more oil in it will smoke a little bit more but it will never seize up,,,mine is 20 years old now,,,time speeks dont it?

Are water heater runs for about a minute then the code C7 13 Code flashes and we lose our hot water?

Call Rheem for a new unit. They problem will never be fixed. They have redesigned the unit. It is now RTG-95DVN a self contained venting unit. Mine was worked on several times over two years and much frustration before they finally replaced it.

Getting better gas milage....

Hey there, well if its anything like mine(91 cressy) its pretty thirsty! but things worth checking(if u havnt already) are the engine timing, fuel filter, air filter, as they will make a huge differnce. still im getting 11L per 100 around town, and i dont exactly flog it. and about the octane, i realy wouldnt worry too much if its just the non turbo version, although sticking to 91octane or above is always a good idea. usually only costs a few extra dollars a tank for 98 octane here in Australia, so i think its worth it.

My Weber natural gas grill doesn't get as hot as it used to.

Check the gas valve. This will cause a decrease in gas pressure and would explain all your symptoms that you are having. Check it with a volt meter and your should read 120 volts

Diesel engine (2c turbo inport from china)

gday im a mechanic i have owned two of these in a lite ace and a tarago there are three possitions that the cam shaft can be aligned and not have valve piston contact the middle one is the right one the two ither side of the correct one cant breath properly smokes badly ,idels rough and extreem lack of power and excessive noise (cam belt one tooth out ) same if injector pump is a tooth out but noisier. you need to remove the fan hub bracket to see the timing mark for the IP drive pully also the injector pump internals can be assembled 180 degrees out resulting in injection at bottom dead centre , extreem noise ,heaps of smoke and will barely move the car in first gear also the crank timing mark is only visible with the front harmonic balance flywheel and timing belt cover removed . answer to the other question why not a rover diesel . the 2ct ues heaps less fuel revvs heaps harder comes factory balanced is heaps quieter and lasts heaps longer there is no contest with the rover diesel the 2ct weighs less to the down side is that the turbo usualy fitted on the 2ct is under sized and very short lived. boosts early for low down torq but is unable to breath at the high revvs that this engine loves. turbo getts too hot at highway speeds and melts bearings if not warmed down . mine has a water cooled turbo of a 2.8 izuzu motor from a trooper/jackeroo im soon fitting this engine and turbo into 79 chrysler scorpion. this engine when decompressed to 17 to one with hot glow plugs handles 30 psi boost, you can get three different thickness head shims for this motor to decompress , ignore petro company propaganda ive done 300,000+ kms burning everything from lard mixed with alchohol to canola and sunflower blended with jet fuel ,petrol, sump waste oil a good injecor pump will feed an engine anything thicker than kerosine so long as its hot(80 to 100degrees c) even lard and sumpoil the thicker the oil the more lubricating and the longer the pump and injectors last so long as the oil is well filtered and free of water
