This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing this. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

What is the definition of controlled variable?


In control theory, controlled variable is the variable that the controller attempts to control. Imagine a thermostat that is controlling the temperature in your room using a heater. The temperature is the controlled variable. The controller knows the target room temperature it should achieve and hold, and attempts to turn the heater ON and OFF (alternately it can regulate the power that is fed into the heater) in a manner so that the controlled variable will come and stay close to its target value regardless the heat-flow out and in of the room through walls, doors, windows, etc.

Your control may a defected relay to the blower under heating mode. If that is the case you will need a new control board or replay.

Rinnai reh15-217 burners cut out automatically after being on for about 1/2 an hour


If you're saying the burners turn OFF after 1/2 hour, but the pilot light stays lit ... I'd have to assume that the automatic thermostat control on the heater, turned the burners OFF, because the temperature you had it set on had been reached. The real question (at least for me) is are you allowing enough time for the temperature to drop and the heater to turn back ON automatically?

Not heating up right


Hi,when Element does not heat up correctly

1. Test for power to determine that the unit is receiving the correct voltages.
2. If the power voltages are correct and you have standard surface burner elements:
1. Test Surface Burner.
2. Test the Receptacle.
3. Test the Burner Switch.
3. If the power voltages are correct and you have solid-disc elements:
1. Test the solid-disc element.
2. Test the Burner Switch.
4. If the power voltages are correct and you have radiant heating elements:
1. Test the radiant heating element.
2. Test the Burner Switch.


1. Make sure the controls are set properly that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Where applicable, make sure the oven timer is set to manual.

2. Make sure the oven door is slightly ajar as per your owner's manual.

3. If nothing else on the Range, Oven or Cooktop is working then:
1. Check the circuit breaker or fuse
2. Test for power

4. Test the broiler element.

5. Check the oven thermostat.

6. Check selector switch.

7. Check oven cycling relay.


REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION .

Please if no experience, please contact a skillful personnel for assistance.

Oven tempeture lower than setting by 100 degrees on 350. even after pre-heat cycle. slightly more accurate at higher temps. i have a regular oven thermometer to check it. it was working well until...


Hey-  Let's fix this thing.  Several things can affect indicated/actual temperature.  The temp probe should test ok across it's lead wires at around 1100ohms. The computer usually shows a fault if the circuit is open, but won't show a code if it hasn't failed completely.  The next suspect is the igniter for the oven burner.  These can become weak with age, affecting gas flow to burner. Testing igniter is not really possible when it comes on and the part is usually replaced.  The regulator is next in line, occasionally causing variable flow to burner.  As you can see, quite a bit to consider.  On site diagnostics is usually required, but this gives you a start.  Installation instructions are available for all parts.     Please acknowledge this post if my info and time spent helps you.  Have more info if needed.  Thanks- Ed

Main Burner Will only stay on with mid range temperature setting


Thermostat is bad. There is a micro switch behind the dial that reacts to the temp probe and you may try cleaning it out first but in my experience replacing the t-stat is usually required.

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.


SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.

Burner replacement on Ducane 30400040


Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`
