Question about House Brand Dryers

Open Question

HOUSE warmer model HW180DVP-1. There is propane coming from the tank through the regulator to the gas valve. I removed the main line to the gas valve and opened the tank and propane was coming out. Re assembled and removed the other propane line on the gas valve that goes to the heater and nothing is coming out of there. It has lots of spark just not getting any fuel.

SOURCE: propane convection heater won't maintain full flame

Seems like the valve is not opening up fully or the adjustment is out of adjustment. Try adjusting the flame.

SOURCE: comfort glo propane ventless heater won't light

I have several of these heaters in my rent houses and love them. The most problem I have is not being able to ignite the pilot with the user control igniter. Remove the screws that hold the front cover in place along with the front cover. Hold the pilot control down and ignite with a lighter. Keep the pilot engaged until thermocouple is warm enough to keep pilot gas flowing. If it will light this way then you need to blow out the pilot orifice. It seems that every year I have to go in after the summer season when the heater is off and clean the pilot/orifice lines with high pressure air. I believe spiders/bugs/dust block pilot orifice when it is not in use. You can also tell that orifice is blocked when you don't get a good blue pilot flame with pressure behind it allowing the flame to submerse the thermocouple. If the the thermocouple is not getting enought heat it will turn pilot gas off for safety reasons.

SOURCE: I have been trying to ignite heater but it will

I had the same problem and fixed it with a small piece of Aluminum foil, an adjustable wrench, and a #2 screwdriver... If you're "handy", this is an easy 30 minute fix. I included a picture that may help you visualize the "fix" before attempting. In short, I'm not certain what happened or why/how it broke, but if you remove the valve/manifold you can blow air into the gas inlet (with your mouth) and adjust the knob and you will see that only when it's all the way pushed down you can blow air through the valve, otherwise n air/gas can not get through. Thats why the pilot will light, and when you let the knob out the flame goes out. If that is your problem, this fix will work. After I put the foil (explained below) to extend the brass pushrod that allows gas to enter the manifold, it worked as expected allowing air/gas to enter only when on "light" and through the LO to High sweep.

Step 1) Shut off gas and remove tank.

Step 2) Remove the black gas On/Off knob (pulls off)

Step 3) Remove the three on thumb screws inside the tank storage area to allow the entire top/heater mesh to slide down (like intended to store it, or how it came shipped in the box). Sliding this down will expose the bracket the manifold/valve mounts to.

Step 4) Remove the spring clip and washers from the stem on the valve. Remember the order, and dont lose any parts as this works your igniter. (I usually take a picture with my phone on these types of things, so I can recall how they went.)

Step 5) Carefully remove all the gas lines from the valve and the grounding wire at the rear of the manifold.

Step 6) Remove the two small Phillips screws that hold the valve to the bracket.

Step 7) Remove the valve from the unit.

Step 8) Remove the two small #2 Phillips screws that hold the aluminum and the brass parts together on the valve.

Step 9) Give a slight tug and the two pieces will come apart easily. A small aluminum part may fall out; this is okay as it only goes in one way.

Step 10) Take a small piece of aluminum foil 1 1/2 inches by 7 inches or so, and wadd it tight into a ball. I used pliers to get it tight and small (bigger than BB, but smaller than the end of a pencil eraser) You will see that it needs to go inside the channel where the brass stem will slide in and out of the "slotted" tube on the stem.

Step 11) Put it back together and try the "blow test" again to see if the aluminum ball was the right size to make it work ...again. I had to do this a few times to get the right size "extension". Also, be sure to blow into the "main" gas inlet and adjust the gas control knob through the push in and "light" the pilot mode all through the Hi/Lo sweep.

Reverse your steps and give it a try. Mine lights every time and works perfect. ...actually better than new, as it was always a task to light.

Hope this was helpful, as this was my first post...

I have a Kenmore 14116329 propane grill. The propane tank is full but when I turn on the burners very little gas comes out resulting in a VERY low flame. Is it the regulator or???


It is most likely the saftey check valve in the tank. The procedure is to:
  • Close tank valve.
  • Disconnect hose connection from grill to tank.
  • Wait
  • Reconnect hose connection from grill to tank
  • "Slowly" open valve on tank to release gas back into grill
Through on some steaks

If still a problem replace tank.
The check valve that can cause your problem drastically reduces propane flow in case of an accident and the lines are ruptured
Hope this helps?

Hooked up proane tank used once then no flame on grill. There is propane in the tank but no propane flows out of it either when hooked up to the grill or when opening the valve directly on the tank. This...


The valve on the tank has an internal valve that will not allow you to release propane into the atmosphere. It must be connected to a regulator line in order to open.
It sounds like your regulator has failed. Remove the regulator assembly, inspect it carefully for blockage or hose kinks. If there none, try replacing the regulator assembly.

I'm going to hook up the grill to our house propane gas line and not use a propane tank. Will I need a special hook up device? Where is the connection on the grill? Thank you. Frank...


Yes Frank, you will need some specialty parts. The gas line from your tank will need a shut off valve near the grill. You cannot hard pipe the line to the grill. Code requires that your use a 12' long, rubber, Quick Disconnect Gas Hose. They are normally sold as a kit and should have all the necessary fittings. You will need to remove the grill's hose/regulator assembly, as it won't be necessary any more. That is, unless you have a high pressure propane system. Then you will need a regulator on the gas line coming from the tank to the grill. If that is the case, it should have the capacity to carry the maximum Btu output of your grill, if all the burners where ON and at their highest setting, at the same time. And finally, and probably the most important, have the knowledge and skill necessary to properly hookup an outdoor gas appliance. Or have a good friend that is a Certified Gas Technician to help you. Of course, your propane provider would probably do it for you. Which, might be money well spent.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

Since your grill only has one main burner and it requires more gas to heat with than the side burner. I still suspect you have a grill regulator issue. But, if you've done your research, you know it's easy to solve. Turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank valve and wait at least 5 minutes before reconnecting it. Once it has been reconnected, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, turn your main burner on, light it and turn it to high. Do the flames appear to be higher than before? If so, light and turn ON the Side Burner. Now do all the burner flames appear to be higher than before? If so, you solved the problem. If not, either the grillhose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced or the Venturi Valve on the main burner needs some adjusting. As the air to gas ratio may be off sightly.

Hope this helps to solve your problem and Happy Grilling!

Where you connect to the propane tank, there is a regulator. If you sense no gas coming to the grill, it's likely that the regulator is not operating. What you could do is remove the propane source from the regulator. The regulator has a hose that goes to the grill valves. Unthread the hose from the grill valves, reconnect it to the tank and slowly open the tank to see if gas passes. If it does, it's not the regulator. If it doesn't, buy a new regulator and hose and install.
BE CAREFUL, the gas is explosive if exposed to a spark or heat source.
If you are unsure of what you are doing, have it looked at by a professional.

New GMH80703AN two stage convertible.converted to LP. regulator on tank and a low pressure regulator next to furnace .I can hear and feel the furnace gas valve but no gas coming Thur to orifice


1.You could have a empty propane tank. 2 The regulator could be frozen. Has it rained or snowed recently? If so there is a vent on the regulator that could be plugged. I have had to thaw out 4 of these in the past week. Its simple unhook it and it bring it in the house and warm it with a heat gun or blow dryer for about 5 minutes.

The flow gas coming from the burner is very slow. only heats up to less than 200 degrees. even the side burner is the same. i've cleaned it and changed tank. what is my next step?


It could be a defective LP gas regulator or a restriction somewhere in the gas line for the bbq. This can also happen if the propane tank is overfilled.

First make sure that the LP tank is not overfilled. If you open the bleeder hole on the tank(small screw next to the valve) there should be no liquids coming out. If liquid propane is coming out then the tank is overfilled. Keep the bleeder screw loose until the liquid disappears then tighten. Re-connect the tank and see if that fixes the problem.

Then inspect all the gas lines on the bbq. Make sure that there are no kinks or crushed lines.

Then take a look at the gas regulator. Try turning on all the burners then give the regulator a couple good taps on the housing with something solid. See if the burner changes size. If it does and then goes back down it could be the gas regulator. Also take a look at the regulator housing. There should be a very small hole on the housing and it might be labled "vent". Make sure that this little hole is not plugged with any debris or that can cause a low pressure problem. You can use a sewing needle to gently poke out the hole. You will know if it worked because the burners will become much higher. And you could also try disconnecting the hose and regulator assembly from the bbq then turn on the LP tank slowly with the regulator connected. You should get plenty of gas flow from the end of the hose. Then use your hand to block and release the flow a couple times to try and clear any debris that might stuck in the regulator.BE VERY CAREFUL DOING THIS!!! MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLEAR OF ANY SOURCES OF IGNITION BEFORE TRYING TO CLEAR THE REGULATOR. Then reconnect the hose regulator and tank to see if the problem is fixed. If you are getting very low flow from the hose with the regulator disconnected then it is probably a defective regulator. They are pretty standard and you can purchase a new LP hose and regulator assembly from most home improvement stores.

If the regulator checks out good then I would think that there is a restriction in the main gas line for the bbq after the regulator. You will need you dis-assemble the main line and blow it out with some compressed air to clear the restriction.

Gas not getting to grill


Two things could be wrong. Tank valve could be bad, not allowing gas to flow. Or regulator could be bad not allowing gas to pass. Try taking the tank off and pushing a screwdriver into the end of it with the tank open, if gas doesn't come out tank valve is bad, valve has a spring in it to shut down if starts leaking. If tank valve is good regulator must be bad. I am leaning more towards to the tank valve.

Pentair minimax 100 pool heater millivolt type wont light


You need to check your tanks and make sure that you have enough gas. The heater will need 30% or more in the tanks. If they changed the gas valve I assume that you had a natural gas valve and they replaced with a LP. If your tanks are small then you will only get a couple of days out of them. On this I would need more info. Size of tank size of pool (surface aera) wind conditions, exact model of heater.
First ck to be sure that you have enough gas and be sure to bleed the line before you start once the tanks are full. Let me know how you do. Kieran
