My new roadside coleman grill doesn't produce a flame. It heats but not enough to have a visible flame. I am using a 1lb. propane cilynder.


Flames are merely particulates that are heated enough to glow. If a fuel is burning cleanly there will be no visible flames.

What is the problem when millivolt gas valve can not keep it pilot on?


Hi there.
Probably the thermopile is not receiving enough heat from the pilot flame to generate 500 to 750 millivolt to hold pilot flame. The thermopile may have soot or dirt on it so try to clean or the pilot flame itself does not give enough heat, try adjusting pilot flame. Or the thermopile could not generate the right amount of millivolt even if it is clean and receiving enough heat from pilot flame, so better replace the thermopile.
Check also the hi limit, it must have continuity across its terminal.

My gas water heater pilot light will not stay lit


Hi Mike,
1stly you have to understand what the pilot light does!
Yes, it lights the flame, but it protects you from gassing yourself!
that is thye main job!
hava a look inside!
In front of the pilot flame, (it might have a double flame... (one flame on the bottom & another on top.) is a curved piece of metal plate. The flame is supposed to heat that plate untill it it very hot! Thenm the plate bends down as it is a bimetyaalivc strip!
This opens the bsaety valve & you can let go.
The flame will noe stay on. If a gush of wind blows the flame out, the strip will cool & the safety valve close, preventing a dead family in the morning.
There is a newer system as well.
Right in front of the flame, is a pointed sensor with it's tip in the flame. . It has a electric cable running to a safety valve. This sensor have to heat up as well. It is a heat battery that activates the valve. See that it did not move!
If it heats up, & the valve does not keep the pilot flame going after a few seconds, the unit has to be replaced!
Safety first!

Dryer starts, but does not heat up. Igniter ignites, but no heat. Gas to rest of house is operable.


Hello,
Thier are 2 possible things causing it not to heat.

1) The flame sensor is bad..if the igniter glows BUT does not go off it will be the FLAME SERSOR that is the problem

2) the coils that open the gas valve are defective..If the igniter DOES go off but no flame it will be the gas valve coils

while i dont know what brand you have their are fairly unuvesal parts for the coils or flame sensor

Weatherking furnace is starting and stopping


This just sounds like a couple of problems. First, your blower is designed to only turn on once the heat exchanger heats up, so the flame will be on for a minute or two before the blower starts. it sounds like your blower is cooling down the heat exchanger too fast and causing it to shut off so it can warm up again...check blower speed for heat, it should be the lowest speed (black wire). Blue=medium speed, red= high speed. second problem could be your flame sensor rod is calcified, you just need to locate this and clean it off with some fine sand paper.it is located in the flames near the burners. Also change your filters, for proper air flow through your heat exchanger.

Pilot will not stay lit unless red knob depressed


There is a thermocouple that protrudes up into the flame. If the thermocouple is bad or out of adjustment it will not produce enough electric current to lock the red knob down allowing the heater go into operating mode. This thermocouple is a safety device that senses weather there is a flame or not. If no flame no heat don't turn on. If heat then there must be flame OK turn on. The thermocouple should protrude into the flame about an inch to heat it sufficiently to trigger the valve if it doesn't adjust it into the flame more. If adjusting does no good replace it. Take the old thermocouple to the store you bought the heater at and get a replacement. If you cant get it there almost all hardware stores or heating stores will have generic replacements that will also work.

No heat


It can be both the heat fuse that gone or your pilot light has gone out, check to see if you see a flame while it is functioning, to do this turn on your dryer and watch in the dark so that you can actually see the flame coming on and off or check behind the little door that houses the pilot light to see if you see a flame if no flame relight, this should start your dryer producing heat again
