Whirlpool cabrio propane dryer won't heat. We did have a power outage today

If it has a standing pilot light, that might be out. If electronic ignition, try unplugging from power for a while and see if that resets control board.

Cannon printer quit working suddenly.

Is it possible that the cord came unplugged from the transformer itself instead of the printer or wall plug?
A power outage shouldn't affect it, but a power surge can. Please use surge protection circuits on your computer equipment. It's so much cheaper than repairing or replacing them.
Take it from someone who learned the hard way....
You can try a printer reset. Turn the printer off, unplug the power and data cables from the machine. Wait at least ten minutes to allow the printer cache to be purged.(Canon's recommendation)
Then plug back in and turn on.
I hope this works for you! Good luck!

Doesn't turn on after power outage

that dryer has 240 volts going to it and is a basic dryer with a timer,i don't think it's the dryer i think you have an issue with the fuse,breaker or something to do with the power going to the dryer,if this had a computer board in it then i would say that the board could have been damaged by the power serge when the power came back on,check the fuse or breaker first,then unfortunately you'll have to get into the dryer and get to the back and make sure you're getting 240 volts to where the cord connects to the dryer,it still could have damaged the dryer but i would start with the power supply first,bad or triipped breaker or fuse.hope this helps
