Two problems - Two Solutions: Turn the LP tank valve to OFF. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank and do not reinstall for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tak valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). When the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank and turn the flame height to HIGH? Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights appear to be normal for the highest setting, you've solved the problem.

Second problem & solution: The grill thermometer may be incorrect (as they often are). If you don't have one, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (that normally sits on the oven rack) and place it on the cooking grate of your grill, toward the front of the grill. Once in place, preheat your grill as you normally would with the hood closed and at about the 15 minute mark, compare the temperature on the two thermometers. If they're within a few degrees of each other, your grill thermometer is accurate. If the Oven thermometer reads higher (more than a few degrees), the grill's T-Stat is faulty.

Personally, I always use an oven thermometer on my grill when grilling or baking anything.

Hope this helped to solve your problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!

This is a normal condition, the nag transmission control module needs to see a certain temperature of the fluid before shifting into overdrive this is due to fluid viscosity, if the fluid is too thick
due to cold temps the pump cannot supply enough pressure to fully engage
the overdrive clutch, if it did you would have slippage in overdrive

Hi,My remote do not get the good temp in my house. Ex: I set to 80F in heat mode but the thermopump operate slowly and dosn't get hire than 70-72F. The remote see the unit and all. Is the sensor in th

You have a heat pump.
Once the outdoor temperature falls below 36 degrees, heat pumps will sharply lose their ability to heat.
If you are getting a 72 degree indoor temperature when the outdoor temperature is 28-30 degrees, the heat pump is performing up to spec.
On heat pumps, the air coming out of the nearest air vent to the unit should be heated approximately 40 degrees warmer than the air entering the unit.
If you have a 70 degree indoor air temperature, the heat pump should be supplying 110 degree air at the closest air vent to the indoor unit.
Gas heat is a much better heating source where outside temperatures are commonly below 36 degrees.
Even electric furnaces perform better than heat pumps under these conditions.

I have inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...

  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.

    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    My Goodman home air conditioner is freezing up during very warm weather. What is the correct high and low pressures for the Freon 22 during the running. I know it varys on outside temperature, so a chart...

    The ideal pressures will be 68psi on suction and 225 psi on the liquid line.
    If the pressures are close you should look for a blockage from dust in the evaporator coil,loose fitting air handler panels or a defective fan motor.

    2002 volvo v40 air conditoning will stop an also the fan. the system just charged up. then it will restart after a few minutes/an stop.

    1. Check the flow of the expansion valve valve in the evaporator case. You achieve this test without tools. Simply feel the difference in temperature of the two lines. The incoming line should be palpably cold while the out going line should feel substantially warmer. The valve is a brass unit with an heavy duty (or brass line) attached to allow freon into the evaporator core at a rate such that sufficient freon (134a) flows into the evaporator but not so much that it floods the core. The problem may be either an overcharged system or a faulty expansion valve. An unlikely cause is that the evaporator core is getting too cold and freezing the moist warm air passing over the evaporator core and literally turning it into a chuck of solid ice.

    2. Many systems are purposely designed to operate intermittently in order to conserve fuel. An excellent test of the system's performance is simple and requires a warm day and a basic stick thermometer. Back in the days of R-12 refrigerant used into the late 1980's and sometimes very early 1990's, automotive air conditioning systems could produce vent air temperatures as low as 33F. These vent temperature could easily create ice formations on the inside and outside of the windshield at the defroster vents With today's focus on energy efficiency, green house gases and global warming, all manufacturers are required to use 134a or an equivalent that will not bond with carbon dioxide to ehance the greenhouse gas effect. The 134a filled systems can create a maximum temperature difference between ambient outside temperature and vent temperature of about 40 degrees F. If it's 90F outside, a well charged system will produce a vent temperature of about 50F.

    With 134a, which is used in the Volvo along with a rotary or eccentric compressor, you will get intermittent operation due to a low-side pressure switch which protects the compresssor from operating with insufficient incoming oil-laden freon. Ok. Now I'm geting too technical. If you can achieve a 30-40 degree fahrenheit temperature difference at the center vents on the dash, you are doing just fine.

    My air conditioner dwc 084 rl model does not work well, can not maintain a temperature below 70

    The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough If the air doesn't seem cool enough it is necessary to use a thermometer to check the difference in temperature between the air going into the unit and the air being blown into the room. Ideally, the temperature difference should be more than 15 degrees. For example, if the temperature going into the air conditioner is 80 degrees, the temperature coming out of the unit should be at least 65 degrees or less. If the difference is 15 degrees or more there is probably no cause for concern. If the temperature difference is less than 15 degrees you should check the following:
    • Air damper
    Check to make sure the air damper is closed. If it's open, it will bring in outside air and reduce the efficiency of the unit.
    • Back cover
    During the winter season many people cover their air conditioners to protect the unit from the weather. In the spring or summer they will sometimes forget to remove the cover. If your unit has a cover on the outside portion of the air conditioner remove the cover first.
    • Condensing coils
    The condensing coils will always be on the "warm" side of the air conditioner. That is, on the side that faces outside of the room to be cooled. Air is drawn into the back of the air conditioner on the sides through vent slots and is blown directly out through the condenser coils. If the coils get clogged with lint, dust and dirt the cooling system cannot provide the cooling necessary. To clean the coils it will be necessary to remove the entire cover of the air conditioner or pull it out of the wall to gain access to the coils. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air at them or by using a soft bristle brush to wipe the dirt off. It is important to also clean any dirt or lint build-up in the bottom of the air conditioner so the condense water will be picked up by the condensing fan slinger properly.

    It could also mean that you are trying to cool too big an area for the size of the unit.

    100 to 150 square feet = 5,000
    150 to 250 square feet = 6,000
    250 to 300 square feet = 7,000
    300 to 350 square feet = 8,000
    350 to 400 square feet = 9,000
    400 to 450 square feet = 10,000
    450 to 550 square feet = 12,000
    550 to 700 square feet = 14,000
    700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

    My gas oven will not heat up above 300 degrees and

    You may have 2 problems.
    One. The temperature sensor could be bad. You can remove the temperature sensor and check it with a ohm meter. It should read 1050 to 1150 ohms. If not. It is bad.
    Two. The glowbar ignitor could be bad and not igniting the gas safety valve.Open the bottom drawer of the oven and set the oven to bake. The burner should light in 60 seconds or less. Re-light should be about 30 seconds or less.
    If it takes longer the ignitor is bad.

    Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly

    Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.
