Turn gas supply off to dryer, air out room, seek warranty service. Don't mess with gas.

Is it normal to get a faint gas smell when you hook up you'r gas dryer?


Absolutely. Your dryer runs on gas, and the gas kicks on when the heating element engages. It should be so faint though. If you smell it continuously then check your connections with soapy water, if their is a leak then shut off the gas and try using soap pipe dope, or teflon tape on the threads, then recheck. My guess is its the regulator near the heating element. Good luck

The power should turn on a electric igniter once the gas has reached the heat chamber and regulator. If not let me know soon the model number of your LG dryer so I can help you better, Sea Breeze

LG DLG2524W DRYER WORKS FINE EXCEPT DOESN'T HEAT UP


1. Open dryer door and remove the phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. 2. Remove three screws at very back, allowing top cover to be moved back about an inch and lifted off. 3. remove screw at top left and top right from front top panel. 4. pull plastic front panel along top edge to release front top panel. (watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.

you might want to check you venting, if tis not clear, your lint might be building up inside machine and burning off as you use your unit.
