Question about Pentair MasterTemp high Performance Gas Heater 200 BTU ()

1 Answer

My mater temp is only 2 months old and has stopped working. The gas pressure in drops from 7.5 to 0 when the valve opens. I have had the gas compnay replace the meter and regulator with no lcuk. There is no significant gas leakage in the line. I have had the pool for 20 years and this is the 3rd heater and never a prblem like this before. Any suggestions.

No matter what the gas company says. If you are taking a menometer reading at the inlet to th gas valve, and you know that you have the proper lengths and diameter of gas pipe, And you have no flex pip on the gas line, then th gas company is wrong, and you need a larger regulator or a regulator adjustment.

Consult your installation manual to ensure you have the proper diameter gas line and so not use any flexible gas pipe .

Lincoln Impinger 2 Double Conveyor oven temperature unstable


It looks like a thermostat problem, but if the thermostat had already been replaced, remain to check the valve and the pressure switches.

When the valve is defective, gas will turn off and not restart, Check and eventually replace the pressure switch , but it can also be a control problem.

Let see if I can find support and repair in your area.

My Craftsman 15 Gal Air Compressor trips the electric breaker at start up no mater where I plug it in.


Just fixed my compressor. It would start ok when the tank was empty but trip the breaker if it tried to start with pressure. Searched and read about weak caps, or problem with check valve or pressure switch leaving pressure in the pump head, etc. Turned out that the black plastic box which holds the 2 start up caps and is attached to the end of the motor with 2 screws had cracked on the bottom. The black box had tilted out enough that the start up caps switch was not engaging. Pushed on the lower part of the box and it started perfectly. Fixed it for the cost of some 2 part epoxy. Maybe not your fail, but definitely worth checking out first.

The Hi and Lo gas valve coils do they work in tandem ? Does the Lo stays on all the time ? Ruy ...


Their is 2 coil hosing but one of them has 3 wires and 2 coils inside it. The ignitor does 2 jobs, it lights the fire and acts as a thermocouple through the holding coil. If the flame does not ignite after the sensor detects the heat from it and shuts down then once the ignitor cools down the gas valve is shut down even if power is going to the gas valve. When the temp drops below 105f in the drum the control closes contacts inside allowing power to be supplied to the gas assembly. The ignitor and flame sensor along with the booster holding and secondary coils are all energized at once but the solenoids won't open the valve because the ignitor is hogging the power. The power supplied to it runs through the flame sensor. When the temp inside the sensor reaches a point the bi-metal inside tripped the power to the ignitor and the power gets diverted over to the secondary coil. Thr flame stays on till the temp inside the drum reaches 160f at which time the control thermostat opens circuit to the gas assembly and power is shut down. The drum continues to tumble and when the temp drops once agin below 105 the process is repeated and another blast of heat is shot into the dryer. So what goes wrong? Faulty flame sensor sticking/open, cracked ignitor, old coils that work intermittently or not at all when hot but work again when cooled.themobilian_2866.jpgthemobilian_2865.jpg themobilian_2868.jpgMore here.

12 year old water heater is getting near the end.
Some tanks last 20 years, but that's the exception.
To find exact age of your brand water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/WaterHeaterSerialNumberDecoder.pdf

Leaking TP valve:
1) Lift TP lever and gently lower back into position to see if that stops leak.
Occasionally something gets stuck in the valve.
2) Sometimes water heater temperature gets turned up because heater is not producing as much hot water as before, and higher temps cause TP to release pressure because of overheating.
Dial temperature down to 120 degrees.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-water-heater-temperature.html

3) If steps above don't fix problem, replace TP valve >> TP valves have 125 or 150 degrees rating >>> older tank shouldn't be running above 125 because higher temps cause more pressure on tank, so thermostat should be lower than 125 degrees TP rating.
Buy replacement TP at any hardware store + a roll of teflon tape to seal pipe threads.
Turn gas control to pilot ... this will keep pilot lit but burner will not fire.
Let water cool, and then drain some water out of tank.
If TP valve is on side of tank, then open drain on side of tank and drain water until it is lower than valve level. Open bathtub spigot to let air into line.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html
Be careful around water that is higher than 120 degrees F >> you can get burned quickly >> apply cold water to any burn.
Use pipe wrench and unscrew TP valve counterclock-wise.
Install new TP and put teflon tape on threads.
Re-fill tank completely and open tub valve on hot side until water is running >> then turn gas control back to original position.
Do not fire up any water heater before tank is completely full of water or this could damage tank.

It doesn't turn on - no ignitor glow, suddenly


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Without a model number we are pretty much shooting from the hip here. Having said that it takes all of the following to make the oven burner light:

1. Gas pressure to the gas valve and good solenoids (2 ea)
2. Power to Oven control and selector knob set above min temp
3. Over Temp sensor closed
4. Temp control "thermocouple or thermistor" functional
5. A functioning ignitor

So if you have power to the unit... and we assume the oven control is working.. suspects are:

a. Open ignitor
b. Open flame sensor
c. Open over temp sensor
d. Thermocouple or thermistor (depending on model)
e. Open coil on gas valve

Determining which of the above has failed is performed with an Ohm Meter.

If there is more that we can do for you just respond here.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My drying is blow cold air intead of hot to dry the clothes . what can the problem be


Components:

Igniter: Line voltage brings the igniter temp to about 2200 degrees F in 30 seconds.
Radiant Sensor: Works like a thermostat, normally closed, opens when sensing the heat from the igniter or burner flame.
When cold the radiant sensor contacts are closed and circuit is completed to the igniter. When the igniter heats up, the radiant sensor senses the heat and the contacts open, breaking the circuit to the igniter.
Gas Valve: The gas valve is 2 valve gas valves in series. This is for added safety in case one of the valves fails to seat properly.
Valve 1 (the closest to the supply pipe) has a split coil solenoid (2 coils, 1 solenoid and armature). The upper is the holding coil and the lower is the booster coil. The power of both coils is required to lift the armature. Once the armature is up only the holding coil is required to keep it up.
The second valve has only one coil and is called the secondary coil.

Operation:

At the beginning of a cycle, the sensor contacts are closed, the igniter is cold and the both gas valves are closed.
(NOTE) The sensor contacts are wired in parallel with the secondary coil so current bypasses the secondary coil. As long as the sensor contacts are closed the valve can not be open unless the valve itself is at fault. However when gas pressure is first applied by turning on the gas ****, a small amount of gas may pass though the vent until the pressure regulator is balanced.
The booster coil and igniter are wired in parallel with each other and wired in series with the sensor and secondary combined. When the sensor contacts are closed full line voltage is available to both the igniter and the booster coil. When the sensor contacts are open current must flow though the secondary to get to the igniter and booster coil and a large voltage drop results across the secondary coil. Even though the parallel booster coil and igniter are still in the circuit they are ineffective due to the reduced voltage available to them.

Call for heat: Power is applied to the circuit.

Step 1: Radiant sensor contacts are closed, the holding coil, booster coil and igniter get full line voltage. The holding coil and booster have enough power to open valve 1 (first click)and the igniter begins to get hot and glow. At this time sine the sensor contacts are closed the secondary coil is bypassed so valve 2 remains closed to prevent gas from leaving the burner.
Step 2: The igniter is getting red hot and gas valve 1 is open. As the igniter gets hot its resistance decreases. At the same time the heat from the igniter causes the radiant sensor contacts to open.
Step 3: Valve 1 is now held open by the holding coil. The sensor contacts are open due to the heat from the igniter. The current paths in the circuit change.
With the sensor contacts open the secondary coil is no longer bypassed and is now in series with the parallel combination of the booster coil and igniter. Because of the low resistance of the hot igniter, most of the line voltage is dropped across the secondary coil. Only a small percentage is dropped across the booster coil and igniter. (Sometimes a small click as the booster drops out).
So the secondary coil now opens valve 2 (click 2) releasing gas across the still red hot igniter and the gas is ignited on contact. While the igniter will cool the tip is still in the flame which is enough to keep the resistance low. At the same time the heat from the burner will keep the radiant sensor contacts open.
It the flame goes out the sensor will cool and the contacts will open bypassing the secondary coil and valve 2 will close. When power is removed from the circuit both valves will close due to gas pressure and spring pressure of the armatures.

The answer to your first question, yes. I would ask your gas company to change the second stage regulator. Because this is their property you should not be charged for the change. The answer to your send question is, corrosion. Check all wiring connections at the thermostat and furnace. Check all ground wires including power to the unit and at the circuit breaker box. It could be as simple as a bad door switch or bad connection at the emergency switch. I see that the pressure switch has not been changed. Check to see if the venting is free of restriction. Is there a diagnostic light on this model? The waiting makes me think a coil such as a transformer or relay issue. It cools off and re-energizes. I hope this helps. When the ignitor glows, is there 24 volts AC going to the gas valve? If so, gas issue or gas valve (I know you already replaced it). If not, bad connection on board, burnt out relay or another bad board. May I suggest finding a tech who knows the Goodman forward and backwards.
