Question about Heating & Cooling

Three bar fire keeps going out

I've got a three bar fire and it has worked fine up until lately. However, recently the flame on the front of the heater has been flickering and then the heater has been turning itself off. I bought a new gas cylinder thinking that it could have run out but the problem remains. I know that I don't have a leak in the pipe between the cylinder and heater, so I can't think what it could be. Thank you for your help.

Look at the burners and see if there are any cracks or irregularities. Also the flames should be nice and blue in color, if not, then some new burners may be in your future.

Dryer runs, can see burner is firing but heat setting seems stuck on ;Delicate cycle. Taking 3 hours to dry a load of towels.


gas coil condensors may not be working properly as they set the gas pressure needed to keep flame going hot. can check them with a multi meter however if flames stays on you may want to check the venting system first u might be surprised bad venting can slow down drying. check in machine and at exhaust to home. Again Each time you see the glow bar igniter come on it should ignite the gas burner. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red for a short time and then fading off without any burner ignition would indicate weak solenoid coils. The coils are mounted on top of the gas valve and they both will need to be removed and replaced. In order to access the solenoid coils will require removing the lint filter, removing the two screws which was hidden by the lint filter and raising the top and removing the front panel.

Husqvarna 372xp won't start... Mysterious


I recently bought a brand new 372XP and spent the first day trying to start it as per the instruction manual with no success, never even fired once. Removed the plug to find plenty of fuel and that the plug has a good spark. Left it until the next day mainly to allow my arm to recover (& scour the internet for clues). I found a forum that said not to use the decompressor and sure enough without the use of the decompressor button it fired first go with the choke on then I reset the choke & it ran properly on the second pull. The decompressor button can be reset with fine nosed pliers or removal of the top cover by undoing three screws. Good luck it's a great saw once you know how to start it.

Why don't costco stock the magalite wireless motion detection lites anymore, model MB-DLM-82. I've bought 9 so far and would buy more but can't find them in Phoenix, AZ.


I'm guess they don't stock for they stop working in a few months.

I have three and after three months, they go on and off when they want to.

If it detects movement, they may or may not work.

Loved them until they went crazy.

There are many posts on the net about the problems with these. I'm probably going to ask
COSTCO for a refund. I suspect they've given plenty already.

I light the pilot on my built in fireplace, a thirty to forty seconds after turning on the main burner the fire will go out, for a few seconds prior to the fire going out the pilot flame shows a lifting...


It could be, I want you to try this and see what happens. First clean up the thermocouple with steel wool until it looks new, now carefully try to relocate it (bend it) so it is at the top center of the pilot flame. This is the hottest part of the flame. You may even want to close off the damper slightly until the main flames get hot then open it all the way. Now I am not telling you to close the damper all the way but simply close it partially until the main flame is established for a little bit(two to three minutes). If this works you have a strong draft and just continue to light it the same way. A good draft is not a problem as this vents carbon-monoxide out of your home, and thats a good thing.

I have had this problem many times. If changing the flame sensor and cleaning the front of the venturi tube did not help. Also check the ground wire that is attatched to the burner assembly. Also, I have found it necessary at times to replace the wire completely from the flame sensor to the ignition board (circuit board). if you have a multi meter that is capable of reading micro amps, put it in series with the flame sensor and you should see 3-5 micro amps dc. If this is not present, check and make sure that the flame is covering the sensor fully.
