I have an older Model 5068-700 round Patio Fireplace with

I have an older Coleman Model 5068-700 round Patio Fireplace with Wheels. I have been looking for part #5201, the firestarter. The sites I have visited say it is no longer being made. I'm wondering if this is a similar assembly to those used on Coleman Camp Stoves, etc.? My problem is that the knob that adjusts the flame and turns the gas flow from the attached canister on and off will no longer turn the gas OFF. Can you help me? Thank you...

Blower died on Charmglow electric fireplace. Installed replacement,

Blower died on Charmglow electric fireplace. Installed replacement, think I screwed up wiring. Lights come on and responds to rheostat low to high. Fan just runs flat out all the time and the heating element does not come on. I took a picture of how I did the right end wiring. The Left side was never touched. I can email pictures but need an address. Or phone number. Thanks, Steve. (###) ###-####

I have a Viking Micro/Convect over the range oven model #VMOR205SS

I have a Viking Micro/Convect over the range oven model #VMOR205SS SN 114736. It no longer heats on micro or convection settings, and the turntable does not turn. If the oven runs in convection for a few minutes, the fan stops and the time stops "counting down". You have to push the stop/cancel button to reset to the clock. I checked the micro switches inside the door (appears to be 4- 3 normal open, and on that is normal closed), all 4 appear to function when manually triggered. I have extensive appliance repair experience (spa controls, boilers, stove & fireplace) so I can do more tests if necessary. Thanks.

This Q is for a gas fireplace: I have a Heat-N-Glo,

This Q is for a gas fireplace: I have a Heat-N-Glo, SL-550TRS - IPI (direct vent, natural gas), which lights from a wall switch. It works without issue for several minutes after lighting. Then it begins to make a clicking sound (clusters of 3-4 clicksevery few seconds) from underneath the fire box. It seems to be coming from the pilot unit, with the flame flickering slightly with every click. The sound goes away immediately when I turn off the power. Help?

I bought a viking range hood with 460 CFM that fits a 7" duct.

I bought a viking range hood with 460 CFM that fits a 7" duct. My duct is 6" wide....I understand if I go over 400 CFM it would not be to code. I read that Broan makes a universal makeup air damper 6" kit that can be retrofitted into my existing ductwork and would meet code. I am in raleigh nc. Is this true? Thanks

We have a GE natural gas stove. After cooking some soup this

We have a GE natural gas stove. After cooking some soup this evening the stve went to LOC with the clock time visible. We pulled the manual and looked through it. We checked the fuze downstairs it was okay and also checked the flow of natural gas by turning on a natural gas fireplace which worked properly.When we tried to turn on a burner the LOC changed to "surface burner err5" for about two or three seconds then returned to LOC. The oven is not locked. We also tried pushing 90 simultaneously for three seconds about six times - nothing happened.What should we do to fix this problem?Jack Springer
