Question about Dryers
I posted this problem earlier and received some solutions; however, it seems that I may have a faulty flame sensor or thermostat. What voltage or ohms readings do I look for to see if these components are not working correctly?
Please provide the brand and model number of your dryer.. However.. you state that your dryer is not heating properly and yet the burner ignites.. If you have a flame after ignition and your dryer is drying slowly, I would be inclined to look at the blower and or vent for restrictions in air flow. The heat generated by the burner will not be optimized in terms of drying clothes if you do not move that air out . Any and all restrictions to normal vent flow will make the dryer less efficient and dry times will be longer. If you are bound an determined to get into the flame sensor and thermostat logic, then please provide a brand and model number..
Hope this helps...

Thank you for your post, friend!
Typically, you would not have to light a gas dryer. The Frigidaire dryer has a burner and igniter already installed within the dryer that would automatically start. If you are not receiving heat you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This would help avoid any future issues for your dryer. -Matt
