To replace the ignitor you have to remove the top of the dryer, then you undo the two 5/16 screws that you find on each side of the front, then relase the door switch so that the front panel can come off.

Here is a general diagram.

Here is the diagram for the burner.

Here is the replacement: IGNITOR ASSEMBLY.

Igniter not glowing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Mod 417.94052500 won't heat


Have you tried to watch or listen to see if you hear it ignite and then it goes out or does it not try to ignite at all?
If it doesn't try to ignite at all, replace the igniter with this part.
If it ignites and goes out after a few seconds, replace the flame sensor with this part.

My dryer is not igniting. I replaced the igniter, still wont heat


The ignition coils located on the gas valve or the flame sensor located on the burner assembly is the problem. Both inexpensive repairs.

Lgniter on bottom glows I don't know about the top one but no ignition


I suspect you have a bad igniter on the oven manifold. The broiler and oven both use separate igniters, so if the broiler works, you don't have a gas problem. No ignition is most commonly attributed to an oven igniter that is going bad. As these igniters age, they become weak and require replacement. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. The following link explains some theory behind how they work and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range

Replacements can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary, so shop and compare.

NOTE: If the replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match the one on your range, you will be instructed to cut the old connector plug off and splice the wires together using a set of ceramic wire lugs that are included in the replacement kit. DO NOT attempt to use standard wires lugs. They will melt due to the extreme heat in an oven. The ceramic lugs and the wires on the igniter are heat resistant.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check all the sections below for faults. replace any component that is faulty. in most cases, it will be a faulty set of coils. i still recommend checking every linked component for flaws before replacing the coil assembly.

Kenmore Dryer won't re-light after initial start


The following link explains a little theory about glow bar style igniters:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

I know the link is for replacing an igniter on a gas range, but the types of igniters used and the theory of operation is still the same. First, you will need to determine if your igniter is still good. The link provides you with the tolerances you need. If the igniter is still good, I would recommend replacing the gas valve solenoids (coils). There are two of them on the burner assembly near the igniter. One is a two terminal, the other is a three terminal. One coil is the gas main, the other is the pilot position. Typically, a weak or bad igniter will not allow the burner to ignite at all. If the coils are bad, however, they may allow initial ignition, but once the burner assembly gets hot, they may shut off. I've seen this happen before. Test your igniter just to be sure, but I'm leaning towards the coils being faulty. It is strongly recommended that you replace BOTH coils at the same time if one or the other is defective. They are generally sold as a set. If you post back with your COMPLETE model number I can assist you in trying to locate replacement parts if you like. I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
