Oven,broiler won't light


The igniter is the most commonly defective part for a gas oven that won't turn on. The igniter has two main functions. First, the igniter draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, the igniter gets hot enough to glow and ignite the gas in the burner assembly. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

Does a 2008 zstar 49 cc mini atv have a normally open or a normally ignition switch?


The ignition switch is open until you turn it on. To hot wire one of these machines you simply cut the wires to the ignition and twist them together.

Toyota p1300


Error Code: DTC P1300
Description: Igniter Circuit Malfunction
Solution:
To repair the code please do the following:
1. Check spark plugs.
2. Check for open and short in harness and connector in IGF (Ignition Confirmation) signal circuit between ECM and igniter.
3. Disconnect igniter connector and check voltage between terminal IGF of ECM connector and body ground.
4. Check for open and short in harness and connector in IGT1 - 3 signal circuit between ECM and igniter.
5. Check voltage between terminals IGT1 - 3 of ECM connector and body ground.
6. Disconnect igniter connector and check voltage between terminals IGT1 - 3 of ECM connector and body ground.
8. Check for open and short in harness and connector between ignition switch and ignition coil, ignition coil and igniter.
9. Check and replace ignition coils with a good known one.
10. Check and replace ECM with good a known one .
Hope that works.

Too much gas in oven berfore ignitor lights


Hello
You have a very dangerous situation. Do not use this machine! Your gas valve and igniter need to be replaced right away!Use a qualified tech please. The gas valve should never open if igniter isn't hot enough. Not an expensive repair.

Trac off light came on and off then stayed on while driving, p0203p0204 p0300 codes when scanned with little machine better read open circuts in both injectors loss of power


P0203 - Injector Circuit Malfunction Cylinder 3

Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) checks the injectors circuit resistance and monitors the voltage drop during normal operation. The PCM/ECM will trigger the P0203 code when the resistance or voltage drop at the injector #3 is out of specifications.

Causes:
- Open or shorted wiring harness to the injector #3
- Bad injector #3
- Bad PCM/ECM

Solutions:
- If damage, repair injector wire harness or connector
- Replace injector
- Replace PCM or ECM


P0204 - Injector Circuit Malfunction Cylinder 4

Same info as the P0203 DTC


P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate. If the engine speed fluctuates enough to cause the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor (POS) signal to vary, Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) can determine that a misfire is occurring.

Causes:
- Improper spark plug
- Insufficient compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted
- Fuel injectors may be faulty
- Intake air leak
- The ignition signal circuit is open or shorted

Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replace Spark Plugs
- Replace Injectors
- Replace Ignition Coils

Where does ignition key goes?


Ignition is normally on left side just below the rear of the seat. However, if yours has been chromed out with new ignition switch ( it will look like the turn knob on a bubblegum machine with a solid bar running up and down) the bar flips open ( to the left) and the key is round like those used to open a Cola machine.

The gas dryer does not get warm?


to have it get warm there are 3 things have to be working together:
1- Ignition needs to be on to start the burning.
2- Gas valve needs to be opened after ignition is on.
3- Gas continues jetting in until a thermal switch turns the valve off.
You can open the rear panel to observe if the ignition is glowing or not. If it is not then that the culprit. If it is on then glows off after a while since the gas valve is not open, then you can just replace the thermo sensor if it is separate from the gas controller. Some controller has it integrated then you have to replace that. Good luck.

Gas dryer will not stop running and has no heat


The sensors will not shut down the dryer until the dampness goes away and if you have paid the gas bill, I would assume the gas carrying apparatus within the machine has gone haywire. Quite simply when the clothes are wet the control klixon sends current to the gas assembly. Within the gas assembly is the flame sensor, the igniter and the gas operator solenoids. The power is fed first to the sensor and then to the igniter. The coils also are hot and on the same circuit. Those coils won't open the gas valve because of the enormous rate of power it takes to fire up that igniter. The flame sensor has a bi-metal within it that determines the heat of the igniter and when the temperature reaches 1800f then the sensor shuts down power to the igniter and all of the energy is toosed in the direction of those solenoids. They snap down and yank the spring loaded gas valve open and fuel flows outward right onto the screaming hot igniter. Houston we have ignition. So what can go wrong? If the fuse is blown due to excesive lint or blocked air flow then no power will get to the gas assembly. If the power is getting there then if the sensor is open the igniter wont glow. Since the silicon carbide igniter becomes a resister in the same circuit when the flame hits it, the gas coils themselves will not fire off if the igniter is faulty. The solenoids themselves will get hot and quit,cool down and work some more.

No flame but igniter cycles


If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
