A good guess would be that the burner's O.K. but the Low-Medium High swich needs replacement. I assume that the burner does not get hot in ANY position of the knob? Let me knoiw.

Do a Google search to see if you can find the part for it. If not, you just may have to buy a new one and learn to protect it from birds and other animals.

My sears gas grill is about 2yrs old. have never gotten a high flame. replaced regulator and tank. same problem. takes a long time to heat up even with lid closed.

Have you replaced the burners? Sears and big box stores (Home Depot/Menards, etc) have generic replacement kits. Pretty easy instructions. I change mine each season. Hope this helps.

My ps3 keeps frezzing through games

if its freezing while reading, it maybe your rsx chip is beginning to spread apart from your motherboard.. how old is your unit.. first try cleaning your lens before purchasing one.. if you have to purchase a lens check ebay against CECH model(CECH-2501A, CECH-K01) then see what the return policy is.. NO RETURN, 3 DAYS, 10 DAYS.. if that lens doesnt work for you return it quickly, chances are your lens is still good.. then you will have to look into the heat gun 4 penny trick.. if its under warranty($150).. out of warranty the cost to fix is roughly $50.. if you dont have the tools already around..
home depot- has a heat gun in the paint department for $ shack- ceramic thermo paste $8 or artic silver thermo paste $12..
radio shack- home depot- percision screw kit $12and last but not least $.04 from your change and an hour of your time..
find a you tube video to help you disassemble your unit
i copy this guy, movement for movement.. each time i fix freezing/ ylod/ rlod/ glod/ black screen units.. i use a painters Wagner yellow heat gun unit on high..
spreading thermo paste- should be a little thicker than a sheet of paper covering entire video chip and cpu chip..
place the four pennies touching side by side forming a square in center of the video/RSX chip only.. i dab thermo paste in the center of pennies, dont bother spreading..
MY KIT: Power drill for case only/ unscrew only.. empty ceramic package is perfect for a screw container.. piece of wood i drilled a hole thru wood for the power prongs to fit thru from motherboard.. wood is to protect other surfaces from heat.. $8 ceramic2 from radio shack.. 7_7_2012_9_16_13_pm.jpg

Have a home depot ducane 5 burner. just replaced burner tubes. have never used the rotisserie burner on it before. it lights but won't stay lite after releasing knob...any suggestions? Thanks

Infrared burners requite that the gas control knob be held in for 2 minutes or so, to allow the thermocouple on the infrared burner to heat up completely. If it's windy were you are, the wind can blow the burner out, while trying to light it. That's why it has a thermocouple on it, to stop the gas if the burner goes out. All cooking on the rotisserie is doon with the lid/hood closed, at temperatures around 250 degrees F. Once the infrared burner turns bright red, release the control knob.

Hope this helped you to get it lit. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Electric Dryer does not get hot

Do you have a voltage meter read from the new plug you put on from the wire on the right to the wire on the far left you should read around 220 from each one to the middle one you should get 110. If you are only getting 110 the dryer will run but not heat it takes 220 to heat the element if you do not get 220 flip your breaker off then on to reset it and test again good luck

1 coil heats, the other 3 don't

Take a flashlight & look into the receptical where the burners plug in. If it looks burned up, then you need to replace the recepticals(part #330031). If the burner prongs are burnt looking, they need to be filed clean or replace the burners too. If you plug burnt burner ends into a new receptical, it will burn the receptical in no time. Try spreading the prongs on the burners before plugging them back in to make a tighter contact.

GE electric dyer cord

You must change the cord on the dryer. New house constuction electrical code requires a 4 prong receptical (double grounded).
You can buy a cord at Lowes, Home depo, Sears, etc. When you install the new cord there is a brass strap from the neutral post to the dryer cabinet that you must remove.The extra green wire in the cord connects to the cabinet. Your old cord probably won't be color coded, but the new one will be. Red is hot, goes on the end post, (doesn't matter whichn end). white is neutral and goes on the middle post. black is hot & goes on the other end post.& green goes to the cabinet.
