Check the thermal fuse on the blower housing and if it is ok then check the components on the gas valve. Eric

Hooked up roper dryer and it's propane everything seems to be hooked up right but won't get hot or even heat up. This is first time ever having to use propane. Any idea what it might be or could have...


1.is the pilot light lite burning.
2. if pilot light light is on ,does the blue flame of the pilot light touch and heat up the thermocouple.
the dryer will not turn on the heat if the pilot flame does not touch and heat up the thermocouple.

3 is the dryer plugged in to the electricity.
4. is the dryer actually getting electricity.
If the dryer has electricity and the pilot flame is touching the thermocouple, then try buying and installing a new thermocouple.

****have you purged the air out of the gas lines so that the dryer is actually geting pure propaine and not just air getting pushed ahead of the propaine.

how old is your dryer, if new, warranty service will trouble shoot & repair for free.

you need to tell us more so that we have some facts to work with. vagueness does not cut it.

Can't light pilot light on hot water service. Gas to property is connected as the gas stove works.


There should be a trouble shoot guide on the hot water tank. I have had to do this many times. You just need to read the trouble shooting guide & be very careful. I hope this works for you.

When I tried to light my furnace, the electrical wires from the thermostat don't spark all the time, therefore my furnace won't stay lighted. What can I do to fix this?


Is this an older furnace where you have a pilot light? Are you saying the pilot light will not stay lit? If thats the case then likely you need a new thermal couple. That is what the pilot light keeps hot while it stays lit. It is a safety device that is there so your furnace will not come on if there is no pilot light present. Very common. Hardware store item. Need Furnace's make and model #'s.
If this is an electronically controlled furnace, you will need a service call.

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer, I can see through the hole that the piolet light is not lit. Model #LGR7646EQ3. It is not heating to dry clothes, can I just try & relight the pilot light?


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

No Hot Water


Well, let's start the trouble shooting process with trying to get the pilot lit...
Have you removed the cover at the bottom of the heater?-- Can you see an pilot light inside?

If not, Can you try lighting the pilot-- and noticing how the pilot flam heats the little ThermoCouple (TC)?
Note: In order for gas to flow thru the main control valve, the pilot light has to be heating the TC-- to generate a voltage, that in turn allows the main gas valve to open.
Do you need help in getting the pilot light lit?-- do you understand the need to hold down the start button, until the TC gets heated up?

Let us know what you find

I have a Kenmore gas dryer 90 seriers, and when I dry clothes it will only get hot for about min, than stays warm durning the period of the drying cycle, what is wrong and how do I fix it....


The problem is with the gas assembly coils. They get hot and quit. Then later on they cool off and will work a little bit. Making it an agrevating intermittant problem. These are only 20 bucks and easy to replace:c433b30.jpg

No hot air


If you have a pilot light (small flame) you can try to re-light it by turning the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position and pushing the knob down while lighting the pilot, you may have to hold the knob down for up to 30 seconds before releasing it. The pilot should stay lit and then turn the knob to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit or the main burner will not light it could be the gas valve or the temperature sensor.
