I have seen some thermostats that have a ceramic stem attached to the inside end of the control shaft. The ceramic stem is non-conductive and heat-resistant. If this stem is broken or missing, then turning the knob will have little or no effect.

The solution is to replace the thermostat.

How do you light the pilot

Turn the gas knob to the pilot setting, press it in and hold it. You should hear gas escaping while in this position. Do not let more than about 10 seconds of gas out at one time as it may pool. Light the pilot while holding the gas knob down for a minute. Release the gas knob (the pilot flame should stay lit) and turn it to the ON position. To make sure the gas heater is working properly, turn up the thermostat and see if the heater heats up. How To Light The Pilot Light On Gas Heater

My Gas water heater details are as follows: Manufacturer: RHEEM, Model No: 311170N0 Problem<: I followed the instructions to light the pilot. After loghting the pilot I released the thermostat...

Allow the pilot to burn at least a minute, before turning the control knob to ON. You may have to push the knob in slightly to turn it counterclockwise.

Hope this helps you.

I have a Lochinvar pool heater that on the dispaly is showing Air Pressure Switch Open. I looked at the manual and it talks about air flow from the supply vent and exhaust vent. Than it says about...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Try this before taking anything apart to far:

The pressure switch is located in the front header, behind the

upper side jacket panel, above the water connections. When

required, the pressure switch can be reset with the following


1. Clean filter and skimmer.

2. Start filter pump.

3. Set digital thermostat to highest setting.

4. Turn the adjustment knob on the pressure switch clockwise

until the combustion air fan in the front control panel turns

off. Fan will not turn off if system pressure exceeds 5 PSI.

5. Slowly turn the adjustment knob counter-clockwise until the

combustion air fan turns on. Turn knob an additional ¼ turn


6. Turn filter pump off and on several times. The heater should

shut down immediately when the pump stops.

7. If the heater does not shut down immediately as the filter

pump stops, repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 until proper operation

is achieved.
8. Reset thermostat to desired temperature setting.

If after doing all of the above you still have the problem.... you can remove the switch and check for debris in the water passages. If you find debris remove it, reinstall the switch and repeat steps above.

- Still have the problem... Replace the switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I dont have any heat and i need to know how to replace the hearter core, however the windows aren't fogging up so maybe its the thermostat

the only way you should have to replace a heater core is if it leaks or gets plugged up. When motor is hot feel the two hoses that go to the heater core. one should be fairly hot and the other should be the same but if one is just warm then follow hose and locate a flow valve and check for operation. OPening and closing with control hot /cold knob. Check coolant level in radiator while cold as well as fill reservoir to full when cold. Also remove radiator cap when cold and warm truck and check for flow of coolant. if lower radiator hose is hot hot hot and upper hose is cool then thermostat may not be opening properly, or thermostat is stuck open not building heat. You didnt mention if truck was overheating?? If its not i'd check for the flow valve operation, if it is i'd make sure coolant levels are full and waterpump is working.

Igniter on my electrnic gas hot water heater does not work but tests good .so what can the problem be

Not enough information but I will try and guess. Assuming that you have a pilot. Set the thermostat to vacation mode. turn the gas valve knob to pilot and push down and then click the pizzo button several times to lite the pilot. You can look through the sight glass at the bottom of the water heater to see if the pilot is lite. If it didn't wait a few minutes and try again and look at the pilot and see if you can see a spark. If it did lite and then when you took pressure off of the knob and if went out you could have a bad thermocouple or a bad gas valve.....hope this helped.

My holmes heater will not turn on, but the light comes on when the thermostat kob is turned to lo.. but the fan inside isnt working.. this happened out of nowhere

Same problem, I took it apart and found that the thermostat had failed, there are "points" burnt out (like in older cars distributors) that make contact at the thermostat and there were some solder joints which had come loose as well, adding up to no contact through the "hot" side of the wiring. Basically it's not something you can repair, just go buy a new heater, they're about $30. If you decide to try to fix it, beware, it might be dangerous if you don't do everything exactly right, also beware that parts might cost more than the heater.

Problem with used honeywell surround HZZ 2200. run for a minute then shut off.

the way i got mine to run is by pulling off the thermostat knob and then grab the pin and turn it the same way as to turn it up it will loosen it seems it has a mechanical thermostat and its pressure based so adjust it as needed and you can even put the knob back on ... gl
personally i just removed the pin entirely so it runs non stop dunno if that disables any safety features .....

Dryer turns on, gets hot, but knob does not move with timer.

could be your operating thermostat on your heater or your timer if it runs on timed dry but not auto dry then it is a thermostat issue if it just does not run at all then it is a timer issue also make sure your vent is clear check by removing vent hose from back of unit and running a load if it works properly clean your vent.

GE MDL:TBX25ZLB Top Freezer Refrigerator Freezes up

You need either a WR51X314 defrost heater, or more likely a WR9X413 defrost control (defrost timer) for your TBX25ZLB. Unfortunately, these part are listed as "No Longer Available". Next time you want to defrost it, find the defrost control at the back of the refrigerator section, very near the temperture set knob (the one that goes from 1-9). You will most likely have to pull the knob off and remove the cover to find the visible part of the defrost control timer. It is a round flat looking plastic part, usually black or white, smaller than a dime, with a groove in it which you can turn with a flat blade screw driver. Turn it slowly clockwise (they usually make a clicking noise as you turn them) until it makes a rather loud click. Now if the refrig was running, it will stop and turn on the defrost heater. If the heater is good, it should begin to glow red and heat until the frost melts or the timer advances back to the run position (usually about 30 minutes). (if there is lots of build up on the freezer, it will most likely take longer than 30 minutes of defrost heater operation to melt it all. You can help it with your hair blower, if you think you need to. ) All this will help to eliminate the defrost heater itself as the problem. A larger parts store may have a defrost control timer left in inventory, or be able to suggest a generic defrost control which you can use. In the mean time, you can defrost your refrig manually this way once a week or so for 45 minutes, then manually advance the timer again to the run position. (If the defrost control timer is bad, it usually will not advance itself back into run) Send a comment with how things turned out or if you have any other questions. Please don't rate this, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my score.

Honeywell Surround HZ2200 / HZ2204 /

A link to an Adobe (Acrobat) Reader format (.pdf) owner's manual for Honeywell® (Mini Tower) SURROUND HEAT™ HEATER FAN Models HZ-2200 (charcoal) and HZ-2204 (white) is here.

Some text from the manual:

• The Surround Heat™ Heater is designed to
disperse heat in either a 360° range or in one direction only.
• To select the desired heating mode, slide the Direction Control switch, located
on the top of the heater, to the position of your choice:
– to the right (full circle) for 360° Heating
– to the left (half circle) for forward only heating (One Direction

Select the appropriate heat dispersion mode. (See
Set-Up instructions.)
• With the Power knob in the OFF position, plug the
heater into a polarized 120V outlet.
• Turn the Thermostat control fully clockwise to the
HIGH setting.
• Turn the heater on using the Child Resistant switch
(Power knob). To operate the switch, push down
the two sides of the Power knob while turning it
clockwise to the desired position. The power
light will illuminate. The Child Resistant switch helps
ensure that the heater can not be turned on accidentally.
• When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, slowly turn the Thermostat
control counter-clockwise until the heater goes off. This is the point at which the
Thermostat setting equals the room temperature. At this setting, the Thermostat
will automatically turn the heater on and off to maintain this selected temperature.
• Push down and turn the Power knob to OFF and unplug the heater when you
are finished using it.
