I push the button and the door goes up but i push it to go down and it stops and the light starts blinking but it will go down if i hold the button until its all the way down

holding the button over rides the safety and is not advised until you know the door is free from obstructions and afe to operate. disconnect door from motor and be sure it operates smoothly. reconnect and check safety eyes at bottom right and left of door tracks. should be green and yellow lights( liftmaster) check the downward pressure setting on the rear of motor. it may need to be increased slightly

Heating element not coming on

Since the heating element turns on when the heater relay on the control board is bypassed, the problem must be the control thermistor. It is the one on the wiring diagram inside a circle and located on the blower housing. The indicated resistance of 50000 ohms is the resistance of the thermistor at room temperature. It goes down as the dryer heats up and when the dryer temperature is too hot and the thermistor resistance is too low, the control board turns off the heater relay.

The problem here must be the control thermistor. Its resistance must be too low or even shorted thereby making the control board "think" the dryer is too hot and therefore does not turn on the heater relay at all. Check the resistance of the control thermistor which must be around 50000 ohms at room temperature. Measure the resistance with the thermistor connected and disconnected. If the resistance is good when disconnected but not when connected, then the wires must be shorted somewhere else since the control board has been replaced. Locate the short circuit or simply replace the wire harness.

To determine if it is the switch, remove the wires from the back of the switch and touch them together, if the lights come on, it is the switch. You will have to contact Weber for a new switch.

Ignition button does not work, need to light manual on Napoleon P600RB, and the grill uses a lot more gas than our previous Weber

The push button peizo ignitor may simply have lost it's ground. Trace the wiring fro the push button igniter to peizo spark ignitor(s) at the burner(s). The wire simply slides onto a needle like pin, on the bottom of the peizo. Gingerly, pull the wire off and then slide it back on. This should reestablish the ground. Also check the spark ignitors to make sure they're not covered with grease. If they are, clean them with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.

As far as gas consumption is concerned, some gills do use more than others to reach sear temperatures. Usually, because of their burner design or configuration. However, once you preheat your grill to he temperature you want, that doesn't mean the flame height has to remain the same all the time. Once you start cooking, there's no reason you can't turn the burner(s) down some and conserve fuel.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling.

Door opens OK using the remote or wall push button switch Door will not close on either remote or wall push button switch Door will close if we hold wall push button until door closes How do we...

Use the pull cord and disconnect the opener from the door.

Operate the opener and let the carrier slide back away from the door.

Is the carrier moving smoothly when disconnected?

Next, lift the door by hand from the bottom to the top. Is it moving smoothly?

If not, lubricate the axles of all the rollers on both sides of the door.

Check the cable pulleys at the top sides of the door channel, lubricate them as

well. Are all cables in all the pulleys, there are 4.

After checking those things, there is a "up force" and "down force"

adjustment on the opener, try increasing the "up force" by turning the

adjustment in the direction of MORE force.

Give me some thumbs up if this helps you.

When the grill is switched on it trips out the oven fuses after it has run for about a minute i disconnected the fan to see if it was that but it still trips ouit the same

It will be a faulty heater element that is causing the problem.
As it gets hotter, the insulation resistance is breaking down, thereby causing it to trip.
Fit a new element.s, and the problem should be elminated

Ducane 3400042 lighting problems

Good answer... but remember (if you have the regular burners on... The Rotisserie will not light.) 1. Cut all knobs off... Then push and hold in Rotisserie button as you turn to high.
2. Press ignition button, until you hear rotisserie ignite. 3. Keep holding in the rotisserie button until the thermostat realizes the gas is on and burning. (IT must get hot enough to keep gas flowing.) Hope that helps, Dave
