The symptom you have indicates weak solenoid coils. The gas valve should open and the burner should ignite every time the glow bar igniter glows before it fades back off. Weak solenoid coils will usually open the gas valve until the solenoids become hot from the current and flame and then they don't have enough power to open the gas valve.

Replace both solenoid coils and your dryer will most heat and operate normally again. In order to access and replace the solenoid coils you will need to remove the front panel.

Here is the coil kit to order.

Burner will not get hot enough


When the burner arced out it probably also ruined the switch. Most switches on a standard electric range have 5 wires. 2 wires to the burner. 2 hot wires from power and a smaller wire which connects to the indicator light marked P. It is easy to test the switch Unplug the stove. Turn the suspect switch on wide open. Check for continuity between the 2 terminals going out to the burner marked H1 and H2
If you cannot get a reading then the switch has failed. Note: when replacing the switch usually on most stove the replacement will not be or look like the original HOWEVER it will still have L1 and L2 H1 and H2 and P but the terminals are not always in the same order. If you fail to correctly connect the new switch you will fry 2 switches when both get turned on. Ouch!

The fridge seal magnetic around the doors on both the fridge and freezer are extremly hot to the touch.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Your condenser coils are HOT so the front of your unit it HOT. Either the condenser coils are blocked with lint or the condenser fan has stopped running You can place a floor fan pointed at the bottom rear of the unit to cool things off and get by until you get any needed parts or complete the repairs but.. you need to find out what is going on in the condenser coil area. Lint or fan issues. One of the 2. Get rid of the lint, clean and lubricate the fan motor with turbine oil or replace the fan notor. Those are the remdies.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have my Weber Q grill hooked up to a large propane tank rather than the small tube type. It worked fine for a few weeks but now the grill only gets medium hot. Not hot enough to cook anything really. ...


Seems as if your grill is suffering from "Clogged Burner Syndrome". But, don't despair, it's easily solved by removing and thoroughly cleaning the burners or "coil" as you called it. Also, pay particular attention to the venturi valves on the open end of the burner. Spiders like to build nests in them. The venturi valve will look like a slot on the right and left of the burner tube, where it fits over the burner orifice. It's really a good idea to perform this routine maintenance, at the start of each grilling season.

When it comes to gas grills, it's like Benjamin Franklin said, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness."

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

The right front burner will not get hot. It is only warm never hot. The burner doesn't turn bright red even when tuned up on high.


hello, try changing that front element(burner)if its easily removable to another side that is working normal. If the element is still dull not heating or glowing normal then replace the element, but if it does, then there is something wrong with the front right element switch or the receptacle.

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?


Hi,

That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

Stove burner gets red hot


Since you do not have a thermostat control on your burners, I would suspect you may have an infinite switch (burner control), that controls that particular burner, possibly starting to go bad. The thermostat control is located on the infinite switch itself and may be cycling on and off improperly. Its hard to tell with intermittent problems, however. If in doubt, you can do a comparison between a working 8" inch burner and the one you are having problems with.

Another thing to consider with these coil type plug in burners, the receptacles under the cook top that they plug into can gradually become loose over time and cause the burners to arc. This may also cause excess current flow through the burner and will eventually cause burner coil damage and/or receptacle failure. I would troubleshoot this by, first, by unplugging the appliance and inspecting all the burner receptacles. If any show signs of burning or melting, replace them. You will need to lift the cook top to access them. Locate the screws under the bottom front edge of the cook top (open the oven door to see them) and remove them. With the screws removed, the cook top will lift up. Prop in place using the hinge supports.

NOTE: Remove the burner coils and bowls before lifting the cook top.

Replacements parts (including burner receptacles) can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspro.com, searspartsdirect.com, or repairclinic.com.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
