The torch is not igniting. I hear the whoosh but no flame. The torch is about 3 years old and was in the garage for almost one year. Could it be rusted inside. It is not the Omega Blazer it's the ES-1000.

SOURCE: Blazer pocket micro torch will

try to open up the part where the spark would come from. there should be a screw on the bottom or top to open it. This is where the flint would be.

The flint is probably worn down or it broke (you can buy new flints at pretty much any convince store around they are i believe $1-2 for 5 of them.

replace the flint and you will have a spark.

Consul 3-way fridge. hasn't been going for a couple of years. Gas is getting thru and it ignites with a whoosh of flame but doesn't maintain ignition. Can you help?

First verify the fridge works on AC/DC prior to repairing the gas feature. If it is not working on AC/DC it may not be worth repairing. (works on convection and the fluid may have boiled, evaporated or become a solid) The most likely cause of the flame not remaining lit is a faulty or dirty thremo couple. This unit verify' the pilot is lit and maintains fuel to the pilot. In a case where the pilot blows out it stops the flow of gas. If it is dirty or worn out it will not allow the pilot to remain lit. It is likely a steel looking "rod" within the flame path of the pilot light. Try cleaning with a scotch brite pad.

Hi Nancy
I have to ask you a couple of questions. Is the range set up for LP or Natural gas? Blow-tourch sounds are normally caused by to much air going into the burner. If you can look at the burner safely the flames should burn just out of the burner. If the flames are way off the burner the air adjustment is way off or you range is set for the wrong gas. Are your top burners OK?

Fan comes one, should hear whooshing of ignition,

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

I have a gas oven that is a couple (4-5) years old. I hit the bake button, hit 350, hear the click or tick and that's it! That's where it ends no "whoosh" of gas or flames afterwards.

check the voltage to the gas valve in bake cycle if the 12/24 volt is there then change the gas valve if not voltage is present then check the tranformer circuit and limit switch to the gas valve

Delayed ignition of a Ruud high efficiency upflow 90 plus propane

It sounds like the first thing to do is have burners and pilot cleaned and adjusted so ignitor and pilot flame is close to main burner ignition rail.

The "whoosh" is due to delayed ignition because the pilot flame does not come in contact with main gas.

One more thing that should be tested is the gas pressure and combustable air mixture to be sure it is correct.

It is always best to have a qualified technician do this for you, In many areas the gas supplier with check and safety test this for you.

bucklehead...I assume you discarded the 2 year old fuel... if not do so. Your fuel delivery problem could be caused by a number of things. 1. Incorrect air pump pressure, 2. worn or restricted nozzle, 3. deteriorated fuel line or air line, which in turn is creating the ignition problem, 4. the spark plug is bad OR you may not have a fuel delivery problem at all - just a photocell that has gone bad or has a wasp nest built betweem the eye and the flame (check this first). If the photocell can't see the flame it will shut the heater down. That's it's only job.
