I am going to look at a 1996 Kenmore stove with a standing pilot on the oven which has gone out. Assuming the thermocouple is not to blame what would I do to relight the pilot? Thanks, Dave

I have a gas oven that does not have an electric starter.

I have a gas oven that does not have an electric starter. The burners work fine. There is no gas going to the oven, no smell, no sound.JA: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?Customer: It is probably about 10 years old, it is a "magic chef" oven.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: If I can.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I am also having an issue with my furnace, it ignites and the blower comes on but it just goes right back off. No heat is generated. Happened at the same time but I am not sure if it is just a coincidence or a related issue. I did turn off the gas from the shut off and turned off the bower for at least 10 minutes then turned everything back on to see if that would help, but nothing. It is an Amana 80 sse. Again, not sure if one has anything to do woth the other.

We bought a GE Water Softener 40,000 gr GXSH40V at Home

We bought a GE Water Softener 40,000 gr GXSH40V at Home Depot, had it installed approximately 3.5 months ago. A local plumber installer set the machine up and it's worked well. When first started the display read ~ "120 days left." About a month ago I bought & put into the machine 100 lbs of Morton System Saver II salt pellets, but even after reading the Users Manual 5 - 6 times I cannot understand the language well enough. The display now reads "24 days left" along with other details. Even though I have a science background, I am a senior and I am lost. Is there a users manual or other help document for GXSH40V or similar that's written in easy-to-understand terminology that you or GE can send me so I can learn how to use and maintain the softener machine? I repeat it's working very well, but not for long, therefore I definitely need to be able to use and maintain this GE appliance. Please Help, Please.

Our Asko dishwasher is about 10 years old. It just started

Our Asko dishwasher is about 10 years old. It just started tripping a circuit halfway through a cycle. We reset the breaker and it ran fine the rest of the way. Any idea why. TomJA: Sometimes appliance issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Appliance Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.Customer: It all started when we got a new furnace and AC unit for some odd reason. The first time we ran the dishwasher, after about 15 minutes it tripped a breaker. We went to our fusebox and flipped the breaker switch back on and it ran the rest of the cycle fine. We had the AC vendor come by and he says their is no correlation. Seems odd though that this would start happening after a new furnace and AC unit was installed. I guess it could be a coincidence since our ASKO Dishwasher is almost 10 years old and we had 6 kids and now 13 grandkids. We run it pretty much every day.JA: Is there anything else the Appliance Technician should be aware of?Customer: NoJA: OK. Got it.

I have a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, 7 years old.It developed a leak from the bottom of the unit, and I tried to turn off the water. I cannot find a shut-oof valve for the unit.Where does the water supply connect to the unit? I presume that like most refrigerators it connects at the back of the unit.NB- there is not an icemaker or water-in-the-door for the unit. I have a separate icemaker in another unit in a different room.

I have a Kenmore Elite dryer that is about 12 years old. My

I have a Kenmore Elite dryer that is about 12 years old. My former tenants stopped the gas company too early for me to transfer to my name. Long story short, the gas company had to come and light the pilot lights to my oven, furnace, etc. When my new tenant tried to turn on the dryer, there is no heat. Is there a pilot light?JA: Sometimes appliance issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix.

I have a GE monogram 36 inch natural gas cooktop...model zgu36n6hss. It has been working great for 10 years...all of the sudden, all 6 burners have flame issues...the flames are larger than normal and are much more yellow than normal when It is set to high or light. Could it be a increase or decrease in gas pressure? a gas leak?
