Beckett burner adjustment

that's really not a question. do you need to adjust a burner or an electrode? the question that is not a question is not clear. my 6 year old can write with complete sentences.

adjusting a grill burner is usually a process of adjusting the gas flow through the orifice and adjusting the air shutter that allows oxygen to mix with gas as gas flows into the burner. The only other adjustment that affects the burner is not always on every control valve but if it is there, look down inside the valve stem. If there is a tiny flat-head screw there that is an adjustment for gas flowing through the control valve. The orifice, air-shutter, valve stem adjustment is all there is but that is a tremendous amount of control for a simple gas burner that is a solid material with no moving parts.

if the question is adjusting the electrode, an electrode is only a miniature spark plug. the only adjustment is setting the gap. aside from that we can make sure the ground is clean and connected tight, make sure the power source is strong and make sure the tip of the electrode and where ever it will spark is clean. One well-placed drop of grease will foul an electrode so the grease needs to be cleaned from the tip and from aound the tip for a spark to have a clean place to arc against.

I have pyromaster gas logs that has low gas flow

Sounds like a ventilation problem... they're not getting enough air. That's a real safety problem. Make sure they have enough fresh air, and that the room itself does also. This issue is a major safety problem, and if more ventilation does not fix the issue, stop using it! Gas burners are not supposed to stay on without a flame present!

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?

  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

I have a flavel emberglow gas fire the pilot light works but when you turn the fire on it stays on for about 5min then goes out including the pilot light

From what you described it sounds like the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) may be partially clogged with dust, lint and/or pet hair. The ODS is a safety device, that shuts the system down if it detects that there's not enough oxygen for safe combustion. It can be cleaned with a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with).

Remove the logs from the burner and carefully set them of to the side, out of the way. I should mention here, the logs have to go back in the exact same position and configuration that they were in, before you took them out. So, keep that in mind. Better yet, find your Owners Manual or take a picture of the setup, before you remove them.

Once you have the logs off the burner(s), use a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment and vacuum the burner(s), the grate and any cobwebs you see in the firebox. After completing the vacuuming, look at the Pilot Assembly. Tank the can of compressed air with the straw nozzle attached and blow out the pilot tip with a quick blast of air. Now, log down the pilot from the tip. About 2/3rds of the way down, you will see a hole in the side of the pilot. That's the ODS sensor. Place the tip of the straw nozzle just barley into that hole and give it a quick blast of air. You may see debris come out the other side. Now, reinstall the logs on the burner, the exact way they were before you removed them. Light the pilot as you normally would and once it lights, hold the Control Knob in for 1 minute. Ease of the Control Knob and turn it to the ON position, Everything should not work as it was designed.

Take a moment to pat yourself on the back. You just completed what's known as "Annual Maintenance." Which should be done at least annually. Usually in the Fall, before you light the gas logs for the heating season.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

Remote controlled gas log fire will not ignite,relaced batteries,cleaned logs etc,worked a couple of times then refused to ignite again ,can hear ignition ticking but cannot hear any gas coming through ,...

If you're using propane gas, the banging noise you hear is air in the gas line, which means either your tank is empty or the the tank regulator is frozen (if it's ,below freezing in your area). If the tank regulator is frozen, soak a bath towel in hot water and quickly place it around the regulator. It should thaw fairly quickly and the gas will start flowing again. However, you may need to purge the air out of the gas line to gas log burner. Rather than using the electronic ignitor, do it manually, until you smell gas, left off the control knob and wait 5 minutes and then try lighting the pilot electronically.

If you're using Natural Gas, it may still be a pressure problem to the burner. You'll need to have that professionally checked.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

I need a slow speed motor resistor for a dovre 2200 log burner stove.

If you want to control the fan speed on the log burner you need a variable power control that is suitable for inductive loads as dimmer switches are for resistive loads.
Your best bet is to goto a shop that sells log burners and ask for a fan speed controller.

Flame does not seem hot enough - too much yellow flame.

In a gas dryer, heat is provided by a gas heater that is controlled by an air shutter. The gas heater is generally the source of no-heat or drying problems. You can often correct such problems by adjusting the air shutter on the gas burner, which is located along the bottom of the dryer.

To adjust the shutter, take out the screws and remove the panel that covers the gas flame. Turn on the dryer so the flame is burning. If the flame has a deep blue color and you hear air whistling around the burner, the air/gas mixture is receiving too much air. If the flame has a yellow tip, the mixture is not receiving enough air. Turn the thumbscrew or loosen the two screws slightly to increase or decrease the flow of air to the burner. Keep turning until the flame is a light blue color, without any yellow, and the whistling stops.
