My Kirby isn't picking up everything. The roller does spin.

If your model has the indicator light make sure it glows bright when the brush roll is spinning. If it isn't as bright or flickers when vacuuming the carpets replace the belt. Be sure to replace belt at least once per year.

Are the metal tube lines from the knobs to the burners supposed to be attached?

This is a very intersting vacuum cleaner you have my friend.

If this is n fact not a vacuum cleaner ... but rather ... a stove ... no ... the metal tubes are not solidly connected to the knobs and burner.

I have a 1993 fleetwood bounder i have had it for two months. i just got around to the propane appliances but there is no propane flowing to the stove or the furnace. the tank is turned all the way on but...

Ok, Lets start at the beginning. First make sure there is propane in the tanks! Gas can leak rom these tanks sometimes at a very small rate and over time they can go empty if there is a loose fitting somewhere. When you turn on the stove is there any air or hissing sounds coming from the burners? Air can get in the lines and when you turn the gas on, you get nothing but air for several seconds till the air bleeds out then you get the gas. Hold a lit match next to the burner and watch to see if there is any movement to the flame on the match, movement would let you know if there is any air coming from the burner, hold it there for a few seconds and see if any gas comes thru and this will then lite the burner. I always have to turn my stove on for a while to get gas thru the lines so the appliances work after the tanks have been filled or after it sits for a while. Once you get gas thru to the stove you can try your heater, this may also take sewveral tries till all the air is purged from the lines so don't get frustrated, sometimes this can take a while! Then the next thing is the water heater, the gas valve on these has a selection for pilot lite, turn the red knob so thet the cut out in the knob lines up with the gas valve and you have to push and hold this down for a minut or longer to get gas to the burner. Once the burner lights hold the pilot knob down for another minute to make sure all the air is out of the system. Once these are done you should be good to go till next time your tank runs dry and has to be filled. If you determine there is gas in the tank but it is not flowing to the appliances, double check all the shut off valves. The tank should have a diagram on the valve to let you know which way it turns for on and off. Do you have a built in tank on this model? If you have the two removable tank set up, make sure the auto switching valve is set correctly and you have it on to the tank that is full. If you still aren't getting gas, try calling an RV dealer and ask them if there is another valve somewhere that might need to be turned on. There migt be a shut off in the line somewhere, but this is not common.

My hot water heater won't engage at all.

Sounds like the pilot light is not staying lit, provided you have one. The pilot light is used to keep the gas valve open by way of the thermocouple/switch. When the pilot light goes out the thermocouple cools down and shuts the supply of gas off to the water heater burner. It is not unusual for a thermocouple to go bad at which point it needs to be replaced. The thermocouple is the small rod that sits in or close to the pilot light flame. There is a small copper tube that runs from it up to the gas valve on the outside of the tank. This is where you control the temperature of the water as well as light the pilot light. If you are not experienced in dealing with hot water heater gas supplies, you should get professional help.

I am in ecuador and have had a local "plumber" install a lpg tankless water heater for me. After more difficulty than there should have been it's up on the wall with the water and gas lines attached but it...

The system is ignited by turning on a hot water faucet causing water to flow through the unit activating the igniter.You could disconnect the gas line at the unit turn the valve on and off real quick and smell for gas.If there is air in the line you may have to let it run or purge the line just long enough to make sure gas and not air is comming out.You might want to have utility company do this if you have any worries .I would make sure it is set up for lpg and not natural gas. And then and this is quite often the problem the gas line feeding the unit should be at least 3/4 inch pipe and fairly close to the main supply and in no instance the last fixture in system unless the pipe sizing is adequate for the amount of gas the unit needs to run.If sizing is the problem sometimes rather than running new pipes your utility company might be able to adjust the pressure comming out of the tank to make up for it. Hope this helps good luck

This sounds like the carburetor needs disassembled and cleaned. This happens over time and the tiny orifices plug up. Usually from letting gas set in them for extended periods of time and it gums up. If you are not familiar with them, I would take it to your nearest small engine repair shop.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:
