The oven comes from the factory set to be used on natual gas. its souds like your on LP gas. if so there should be a conversion kit with the range or instruction in the owners manual on what to do to convert it. all ranges ar diverent when it comes to converting. you need to follow the instruction in your manual

Thermador PH36HQS Recently purchased a house with gas stove which I've always had electric. It has a griddle that I am not exactly sure how to turn on. I turn knob on and hear something

Gas is not to dangerous as long as you do everything properly. Ensure you have CO2 detectors throughout you're house and also if you smell gas when you are not using/lighting you're stove there may be an issue. Now to the stove, the clicking you are hearing is the spark to light the gas. let it make that noise until you see a flame. Here is a video and links to CO2 detectors.

Kitchenaid Model KGSK901SSS. This is a brand new stove functioning at 6500 ft. altitude. In the morning, the flame from the burners is primarily orange flame. Later in the day and evening, the flame burns...

is the temperature in your kitchen a lot lower in the mornings than later in the day. If yes the problem is caused by the orifice shrinking n low temp .

What dose the numbers on a carbon alarm mean after it goes off. we think for no reason we only have a gas water heater and that only a year old. Thank u

The numbers on my CO detector indicate the concentration of Carbon Monoxide in the room. The manual for most Kidde Alarms are here: . For some models, it will display the peak CO detected (if the peak level button is pressed).

Do not assume that the alarm is in error. Please have the exhaust vent, pipe and intake (for some tankless water heaters) checked for blockages or disconnected pieces. (You can check some of the vents pipe yourself - like the connection from the water heater to the pipe. Depending on your building, you may need a professional to check the vent on the roof and the pipe from there.) Also check the flame color of the water heater. For natural gas, you should see a blue flame. LP usually has a little bit of yellow in the flame tips. CO is the result of incomplete combustion. See this page for an idea of the flame color: . If the flame is the wrong color, get the unit fixed.

I hope this helps.

My nighthawk carbon monoxide alaram is keep biping

Check your user manual for issues dealing with beeping alarms.

Your local fire department may be able to help educate you on the proper installation and use of Carbon Monoxide Detectors. A CO detector alarm should be taken seriously and you should follow the manufacturer procedures included in the package.

NEVER dismiss a Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm for a malfunction.
ALWAYS treat an alarm as an emergency and follow manufacturer procedures.

Check our website for more industry information or for buying replacement Carbon Monoxide Detectors.

Kenmore twin burner.. orange flames

A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

Alarm in Camper keeps going off

New trailer giving off fumes from chemicals and glues used in building process, various aerosol sprays, humid weather, are just a few things that will cause them to go off , as well as a faulty detector. Even too many people sleeping in a small area where detector is located, with windows closed, will cause it due to excess breathing causing high level of co2. Double check fumes not entering from Fridge, water heater, or any other source of open flame. Pay attention to when it goes off, and what is happening and running at the time. Low voltage to detector as well, can cause it to go off.

Lazer 56

Hi EJAKFbanks,

I believe by your description and my 8 years experience with Toyo Stove repair that you are missing part of the firing sequence. The firing sequence for a Toyo Stove L 56 is to blink on the burner light for 7-9 minutes, then it clicks up to the medium light (amber-yellow color). The medium light blinks and that is when the fuel pump kicks on and starts to pump. If the stove ignites, the medium light will glow for a second and then drop down to the low light (green) The low light will burn for awhile and at this time you will see a blue flame in the newer heat chamber models or a red glow, and perhaps some blue flame in the older heat chamber models, then the stove will kick up to the medium light for a bit, and then to the high light. An EE6 error code will show only when the flame is extinguished after actually taking place and a burn did occur in the chamber on low. An EE6 is usually one of 2 things: 1. There is an inadequate fuel supply for the stove to maintain a low cycle burn, or the medium, or high. Each cycle consumes more fuel than the prior one. Inadequate fuel supply can be due to a restriction in the fuel line such as icing like cholesterol in a persons arteries, or a plugged sump screen, blocked fuel line or filter, too low a quantity of fuel in the tank, or a fuel line that is not all gravity feed, as in, the fuel line runs down, down, and then up a few feet to get to the Toyo. In that case, the fuel has to rely on head pressure to get to the stove. Head pressure is the atmospheric pressure pushing on the fuel in the tank to force it up against the earth's gravity forces. Solution: You can find any restriction in the line, replace the filters, clean the sump screen, put heat on the fuel line to thaw any icing blocks. 2. An EE6 can be caused by a carbon chain developing from the burner ring, flame sensor or chamber wall to any metal part in the burn chamber. A carbon chain essentially "shorts" out the ground for the unit and the Toyo will shut off on EE6. Solutions:You can bang the side of the Toyo (Old frustrated Alaskan solution) which really just jars the carbon chain loose, clean the flame sensor, clean the fuel nozzle with a straight 3 inch wire, and stick a screw driver in the igniter (red wires) hole and rattle it around real good (another old Alaskan trick). Often, those three things will get your stove running again if it is a carbon chain. The problem will likely occur again, but it will buy you some time until you can get a tune-up done. Most likely, you need a tune-up. Question: When was your last tune-up? Toyo's should be tuned up every 2 years. Tthe book says every one year, but in my experience, every two years is the best bang for the customers buck. The three year mark usually begins showing signs of metal fatigue in other parts of the burn chamber/heat exchanger system so the costs rise a little each year, unless you are a lucky Toyo owner and for some odd reason, your stove can go 3 years between cleanings without any ill effect. If you get your stove running, run it hard on High for about 2 hours to clean and burn all the carbon out. Good Luck! toyotech, North Pole, Alaska
