Question about Vulcan EF3 Deep Fryer

Fire from lower ports

Instead of heating the tank, we are having fire coming from the bottom of the three ports and the tank only gets to about 120 degrees. What do we need to do? Is something clogged?

    Terrific help! We followed the procedure and the fryer works perfectly. In fact, it lights faster than it has in months, probably because the soot was clogging things for a long time. Too bad the instruction manual doesn't mention this problem. Oh well, FixYa solved it. The only thing I could suggest is that the advisor mention that we should remove the upper front cover to find the screws -- since we'd never looked at the equipment before, it took us a few minutes to figure out where the screws were. Once we got a flash light in there and looked up, the screws were visible. Thanks sooooo mujch.

    We have the same problem. There doesn't appear to be enough air pressure to push flame into the tubes

Have fire coming out exhaust& backfire. How do I remove the flywheel? how do you time it?

More or less, check your rings... sounds to me as if your rings are going...

Fire will also come from exhaust if too much starter fluid is sprayed..

Use carburetor cleaner instead

Not getting 240 volts to lower element- have replaced lower element and both thermostats. get 120 on each leg to ground but no 240

If your top element is bad the the lower element will never turn on be cause the top element completes the 240 circuit. It is like a resister in a circuit. Make sure top element measures out at 13 ohms.

Does anyone know how to use a chattanette coal stove? I think it might have a boiler behind it somewhere. It's part of a U.K. house that is several hundred years old. It has a main "coal"...

A true Chattanette would have been made in Bonnybridge, Scotland, but the principals would be similar. There is a lever above the fireplace that switches the 'draw' of the fire through the back rather than straight up the chimney, if the back boiler is hooked up to a tank properly, this will heat a full tank in about an hour. To the left of the fire grate, there should be a 3 position 'switch' or lever, this should regulate the heat to pass through a vent on the side of the fireplace to pull hot air under the ovens too. If the back boiler is running, the ovens won't get much heat, so if not in use, block the back vent off. Mine gets up to about 200F and the lever is broken, so if yours is ok you should get a pretty hot oven in no time?

Have a GE GG40T6A gas hot water tank. Leaking really bad out of the pressure relief valve. It is a rental property, gas was off to the house (tenants moved out in the night). When the gas company turned...

12 year old water heater is getting near the end.
Some tanks last 20 years, but that's the exception.
To find exact age of your brand water heater:

Leaking TP valve:
1) Lift TP lever and gently lower back into position to see if that stops leak.
Occasionally something gets stuck in the valve.
2) Sometimes water heater temperature gets turned up because heater is not producing as much hot water as before, and higher temps cause TP to release pressure because of overheating.
Dial temperature down to 120 degrees.

3) If steps above don't fix problem, replace TP valve >> TP valves have 125 or 150 degrees rating >>> older tank shouldn't be running above 125 because higher temps cause more pressure on tank, so thermostat should be lower than 125 degrees TP rating.
Buy replacement TP at any hardware store + a roll of teflon tape to seal pipe threads.
Turn gas control to pilot ... this will keep pilot lit but burner will not fire.
Let water cool, and then drain some water out of tank.
If TP valve is on side of tank, then open drain on side of tank and drain water until it is lower than valve level. Open bathtub spigot to let air into line.
Be careful around water that is higher than 120 degrees F >> you can get burned quickly >> apply cold water to any burn.
Use pipe wrench and unscrew TP valve counterclock-wise.
Install new TP and put teflon tape on threads.
Re-fill tank completely and open tub valve on hot side until water is running >> then turn gas control back to original position.
Do not fire up any water heater before tank is completely full of water or this could damage tank.

My coffe maker turns on but nothing comes out, I already checked the spray head & its,not clogged, what can I do

check and make sure the heating pad gets hot if it does not then in the bottom inside the Base you will have to take it apart and under the heating pad their will be some wires their will be a thermal resistor that will be attached to a part of the element this part needs replacing and can be purchased at radio shack for about $1.50 replace it with the new one and reassemble as it was then try the unit. it should be working fine if the heating pad gets hot then you have another issue most likely the water tube come loose at the bottom of the water tank simply re-attach and reassemble some times wile filling the tank when the unit is still hot a steam shock will force the tube off. explanation of the workings the water tank supply water to a tube that attaches to the heating element the water runs though the element heating by the time it reaches the other side it is hot enough to force the water to the top where it is expended to the coffee grounds and brews the coffee like the same way a peculator pot works only difference is the water runs through a tube under the heating element instead of a fire under the pot. hope this helps the radio shack link for the thermal resistor or thermal fuse is the proper name is
chose the proper temp most are for home use at 128°C (262.4°F) Thermal Protector Fuses

Kenmore oven 362.75275690 won't fire...has new ignitor

if you get 120 volts to the ignitor, then the ignitor will glow ,if not you have a bad ignitor. the valve should have continuity through the the 2 connections.. its poosible to have 110v to ground at ignitor, the only way you get 110v you need to check power across the 2 wires to the ignitor( not to ground), and this will not happen with a bad safety vavle
