Question about Mr. Heater Single

I need help with my Single top propain heater

I just got this used and when i light it it lights like it should until the screen gets red then it just blows out and all you see is a flame coming up the hole and the top of the heater goes red hot because of the flame shooting straight out the hole.

Now this has 2 screens on the front of it one is a fine mesh and then top one is not as fine but seems heavier screen but the top of it is burned off.

Can you tell me if i can fix this or not?

Hooked up roper dryer and it's propane everything seems to be hooked up right but won't get hot or even heat up. This is first time ever having to use propane. Any idea what it might be or could have... the pilot light lite burning.
2. if pilot light light is on ,does the blue flame of the pilot light touch and heat up the thermocouple.
the dryer will not turn on the heat if the pilot flame does not touch and heat up the thermocouple.

3 is the dryer plugged in to the electricity.
4. is the dryer actually getting electricity.
If the dryer has electricity and the pilot flame is touching the thermocouple, then try buying and installing a new thermocouple.

****have you purged the air out of the gas lines so that the dryer is actually geting pure propaine and not just air getting pushed ahead of the propaine.

how old is your dryer, if new, warranty service will trouble shoot & repair for free.

you need to tell us more so that we have some facts to work with. vagueness does not cut it.

Playstation 3, solve blank screen with av cable

Hi everybody, i have seen alot of questions on here that refer to people getting blank screens (no signal) when turning on their ps3 (usually after using it with a HDMI cable but not always) if you are using a standard AV cable (scart or the red/white/yellow leads) and you dont get a picture most of the time all you need to do is

1, Turn on your console at the back so the res standby light comes on

2, Hold down the on/off button on the front for several seconds untill you hear the single beep followed by another single beep then release to reset video settings to default

3, If this did not work, when on standby, hold down the on/off button but when it double beeps do not let go, just keep holding until it switches off then do the same again this time it will double beep when you hear this let go, you will need to plug you pad in with the usb cable to continue.

Hope this helps

Not getting any propain to my patio heater

First check the gas, connect the regulator to the cylinder but unclip the hose and do not light the heater. Turn the gas on for a second to see if the regulator is working OK. Next make sure there are no blockages in the pipes up to the burner. If all clear then vent the pipes to clear all air. If still not getting any gas the problem could be a faulty tilt switch cutting the gas supply or a worn thermocouple. Short out the tilt switch to test and if not fixed then change the thermocouple. Found this site very useful with tips patio heater problem solving.

I purchased a single burner tank top heater from Menards. Every attempt to light it resulted in a loud roar so I exchanged it. The replacement has functioned properly untill recently and now has a loud...

Turn the LP Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the heater from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the heater to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion slow). Nor light the heater and turn it to high. Allow it to burn on high for several minutes, before tuning it to low. If this solved the problem, the OPD tank valve was shooting to much pressure to the heater regulator. Turning it on slowly, helps alleviate that problem.

Connecting 2 dimmers one one wall mount

The dimmer with 4 wires is a 4-way switch, but to use it as a single switch you only need two of the wires. Use one from the top and one from the bottom. Cap off the other two wires on this switch (independently, not together). . From among the 4 wires coming from the wall you need to find the one incoming hot wire, and identify what each of the other 3 wires feeds. Temporarily cap off one of those 4 wires and connect the other three together. Turn on the breaker. If nothing lights up, the single wire is the hot wire. If two things light up, the single wire is the thing that didn't light up. Label your findings so far. Turn off power, then try other combinations until you have identified all 4 of these wires. . Your single hot wire needs to connect to one terminal on all three switches. The other 3 wires will each be connected to the remaining terminal on one of the switches. . I don't know what style your 4 way switch is, but if you find that it operates "up-side-down" (up being off and down being on), then you can remedy that. If your outgoing terminal on that switch was say, the lower left, then swap it with the lower right. . Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa! Al Kupchella

Changed the tips ffrom regular gas to propaine on a frigidaire model fgf316 also changed it on the oven. never used oven but the orange heater turns on and it smells like propaine put oven never started,,

you dont need to change tips in oven for conversion to one gas to another the oven has an orifice that can do both all you need to do is screw the ORIGNAL orifce back( clockwise) untill it maxs out. you have to this to broiler too if you have 1, also you need to swith regulator inside bottom door , unsrew to top of it and switch the cap on top so that the long end goes in!! very imp!!!, you need to set air shutter at burner to about 7/16. range conversion should be done by qualifed person, you can have alot of problems trying it yourself

AT&T Model 854 4 line phone, turn off unused line lights

It's a matter of cabling.

Make sure that only the line you wish to use is connected.

If all of the lines are cabled with two to four line cable, then reduce the cabling to a single red/black combination on the one line.
