    turn up

    In a situation where i go to the store and want to ask about the exchange, refund dates, how should i say?

    Is it OK to say " when is the exchange due?"


    Another question.
    The gas in the stove doesnt come out. (by the way, the gas in the stove is right to say?)
    How can i say in right way about this?
    I am thinking 'gas doesn't come out, gas doesn't(won't) turn up, gas is not on'.
    Turn up is right to say?

    Help me please!

    What are you talking about? Money exchange? Exchanging the sweater because if does not fit? Are you talking about buying goods at a store?

    You can ask, "What is your refund policy?" - or - Can I exhange this if it does not fit?

    Turn up is right to say?
    You can say: The gas is not on - or - The gas will not light - or - The gas doesn't seem to be on.

    Re: turn up

    I meant, for example, in a clothing shop.
    I would like to know if it is right to say "Till when could i keep this before the refund?"



    And, Can't i use turn up to describe for gas to be on?
    When else can i say turn up other than used with volume?

    Thanks

    Do you want to ask:
    How long can I keep this before I can refund it?

    "Turn up" means to increase the heat to make it warmer. The heater is already ON and you want to make it warmer.

    I can't turn up the heat. - or - How do you turn up the heat?
