Great questions can always be asked with only a few words. But my answers never seem short. The short answer is that the stove can not breathe. Give it more air. Problem Fixed. What is happening, the chemistry answer: Carbon Monoxide is made when too much natural gas is burning in too little oxygen. Good -> Natural Gas + Lots of Oxygen + Spark = ...
There is no air mixture adjustment. If it's making CO then the airflow is simply blocked. Check all the vents, perhaps insulation moved, or there is something there. Also possible for rodents to live in an oven, and they'll move insulation to make a nest. There are vents on the bottom, and one on top behind the burners in the back (under the control ...
Clean all the tubes in your gas burners. You might have baked on gunk blocking an opening, or even a spider egg case. Spider nests are a huge problem in outside BBQ gas grills. It's one reason why I no longer use gas BBQ grills.
I work for a natural gas company. Please call the gas company & advise you need your meter inspected for rust and they will clean and paint or replace the meter. It is the gas company's responsibility!!!!
In the plumbing world this is fine. However it might not be fine with your dryer. You will need to read the manual or call the manufacturer to get an answer. I don't foresee a dryer using a steaming feature needing more than a 1/8" line but who knows if there is some sort of pressure rating needed. It is probable that the manufacturer doesn't use 1/8" ...
Call your utility. They should be able to send somebody out to turn it on, or at least explain to you why they haven't already. The utility owns the meter, so you shouldn't be messing with it. Rest assured, they will hold you responsible for any damages to the meter.
Do you mean the main burners light when you say "flame lights and begins to heat"? If so, check these possible issues: Thermocouple is too hot. The pilot light flame should only touch the top 1/3 of the thermocouple. Is the pilot flame nice and blue, or is it orange in colour? An orange flame may not be hot enough for the thermocouple to work properly. ...
From grabbing the manual Here For natural gas, a minimum of 3/8" iron pipe with gas minimum pressure of 4.5" w.c. must be used for supply It is possible you have low pressure gas from the gas meter.
Bad thermocouple - it is supposed to sense the presence of a flame, and turn off the gas if it is on, but nothing is getting hot. Last one I replaced was less than $10 at home depot, it is held in with only a screw or two, and less than an hour of work, including the beer after fixing my friends water heater. Looks like this, they are pretty much ...
Your furnace is shutting down on limit. There can be a number of causes for this. Start by making sure you have a clean filter in the furnace. A dirty or restrictive filter can cause this issue. Alternatively you could also have a dirty or plugged up A/C evaporator coil which is located above your furnace. This can also cause a furnace to cycle off on high ...
