My doorbell doesn’t work, but never has. I don’t think I have a dash clock. Seems to me I got help last time, and they did something under the couch. Thanks

New propane detector does it have the LP shut off solenoid like the old System behind the fridge? My new detector came with a new solenoid maybe a possibility.

Stick:


According to the drawings in the 84 PT owner's manual, the pressure regulator on main propane tank contains an excess control valve. From the interweb "Excess flow valves are intended to close upon excessive discharge of vapor or liquid resulting from a break in the hose or piping".


I have heard, read, or possibly dreamed that rapidly opening the shut-off valve can trigger the excess flow valve particularly if the downstream piping system is empty. It can be reset by closing the shut-off valve and then slowly opening it again.


I have no personal experience with propane systems to know if this is actually possible. But I don't think it would be harmful to try it an see if it works.


In the meantime, I will go back to shoveling the snow in my driveway.


Cheers.

What about the electronic master switch... i know that was what was causing my clocks to be out. My electronic master is in the overhead on the driver side in the one with the drape motor.

Everything works but the furnaces and the stove. I’m just going to let George work on it next week.

I’m sure you all know that George Morris is back at work and looking good.

Those all have shutoff valves behind the fridge on mine. There's 3 or 4 of them in there.

I ve checked those valves. I think this is a mechanical failure. There’s really no reason anything should be different than the last time I used it. But thanks.

Default Excess flow valve

Like Len pointed to, a few posts back,

The valve with the manual open/close knob should be designed to stop free-flow condition like ruptured hose. They do fail, not all at on e but gradually. If yours has closed and wont open, You can get them to open by letting it rest a while and gradually cracking it. Very slow, easy does it.

Hope this helps, it got me going once, just passing it along.

Following up, the problem was a recently replaced propane sniffer. Apparently, an incorrect model was used, causing the gas valve to stay closed. Easy fix. Thanks for everyone’s advice.
