Where do you look for the igniter


Most of the igniters are located in the lower front area of the dryer. You need to remove the top cover from the front area , using a spatula to Pop it open (don't forget to remove the filter if its located on the top, Including the two screws that hold the base) . Then you need to remove the front plate by removing two screws from the inside upper Area . The igniter is a ceramic fuse that will click and glow completely Red and ready for the gas to create the flame and heat for you dryer. If you model has a bottom front cover only and after you remove it ,then it will be easier to observe The actual process of the igniter if it is working properly . Good luck

My dryer is not heating when I turn it on the glow plug comes on but does not ignite the gas


The most common cause of a no heat problem on a GAS dryer is worn or blown igniter. These appliances are equipped with a burner assembly with electronic igniters. The following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work:

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

I know the link is for a gas range, but the burner assembly functions are nearly identical, as well as, the type igniters used.

If you are having ignition problems it is probably a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter. The burner assembly will ignite automatically as long as the gas valve, igniter coils and igniter are all functioning properly. It can take up to 90 seconds for the burner to ignite. As the igniter ages, you may experience longer ignition times.
NOTE: Just because the igniter glows, does NOT mean it is good. An igniter may still glow, but could be too weak to properly operate the gas safety valve.

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:
searspartsdirect.com pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com All these sites have competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

I'm still having the problem with the heat Some times the dryer heats for a minute and sometimes for 3 seconds, i replaced the coils and the hi-limit thermostat .I hear this clicking so i know the ignitor...


The previous problem is addressed by replacing the high-limit thermostat according to your last post. The igniter is definitely working since the gas is being ignited.

Yes there's a flame sensor along with the igniter on the burner cone and it must be not working properly. The cycling thermostat is good as per previous troubleshooting, the high-limit thermostat has been replaced, and the igniter is good. These findings and observations suggest that the flame sensor is not working properly. It is either dislodged from its proper position and cannot sense properly the heat from the flame and the igniter or it is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Check that the flame sensor is aligned properly with the slot on the burner cone. Replace the sensor if it is aligned properly. The sensor looks like this.

Gas dryer spins but no heat. where is the igniter so I can check it out?


The igniter is typically positioned at the front right side of the dryer. If your dryer has a front access panel or a peep hole, then you can open it or remove the small plastic plug to view the igniter working. If you do not have either, then the only way to view it is to disassemble it, which means you will not be able to test it when it's apart because the drum will not be supported correctly with the door off. If your igniter is working properly, you will hear it ignite the gas burner by listening closely to the dryer. Otherwise, listening to the igniter glow orange and not ignite may not make any sound.

My Kenmore 90 series dryer's pilot light is out. What can I do? I have a Kenmore 90 series gas dryer and its not getting heat.  If I look at the igniter which is a carborundum igniter and I don't see...


Hi, You should first check the fuse. If the back comes off try this:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. If the rear panel does not come off, please get me model # and I can assist you further.
Please let me know if this helps you.

Thanks
Vic

My Dryer won't heat


I'm assuming you're talking about the igniter. The igniter in these dryers is a glow bar type. Over a period of use, the igniter can become weak with age and no longer produce the required current to open the gas valve. If the gas valve does not open, the result is a glowing igniter with no ignition. The following link provides some good info on glow bar igniters:

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

I know the link is for replacing an igniter in an oven, but the same type of igniter is used on gas dryers as well. I just wanted to give you information on the types of igniters and what current readings they should have.

Another common problem that affects ignition are the gas valve safety coils on the burner assembly going bad. There are usually two of them, and are usually sold as a set. It is recommended that you replace both of them at the same time. The symptoms I have seen more often when the coils go bad, is a dryer that will sometimes ignite and will not stay lit once it warms up. You may hear a rapid clicking or rattling noise associated with bad valves.

I hope this gives you some guidance. If you post back with a model number it would make it easier to determine how your dryer is configured, and assist in trying to locate any recommended parts.

For a Gas Dryer:
1: Check if the igniter glows, if the igniter glows for a short time, followed by a distinct "click" then shuts off, you most likely have to replace the valve coils.
2: If the igniter does not glow at all, you will need to check some electrical components with an electrical meter. (or "ohm meter"..)
First check the thermal fuse, typically mounted either on the blower housing, (for dryers with a bottom lint trap) or on the rear bulkhead, (dryers with a lint screen on top). If the fuse reads OL or infinite resistance, (open fuse) replace it and check for clear venting and proper airflow at your exhaust duct. If your venting is unrestricted, also replace the operating thermostat or thermistor, whichever your dryer has.
If the fuse checks ok, then check the the igniter by disconnecting the in-line wire harness from the igniter and reading across the two pins in the harness, if you read infinite resistance, replace the igniter.
If the igniter checks ok, read across the radiant sensor mounted on the side of the burn tube, you must remove at least one of the wires from the terminals for a correct reading, again, if infinite resistance, replace.
If this doesn't help you may be looking at some electrical issues in the temp select switch, etc. Hope this helps.
