Pop off the bottom panel,there's two clips that are on top of the bottom panel,stick a screw driver or putty knife in and pop the clips and pull out the panel to remove,start the dryer,if the flame ignites and then after a few minutes it doesn't ignite any more you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,part number 279834 and they're around 25 dollars,if the flame ignites but goes out to soon most likely you have a blockage somewhere from lint buildup,pull off the vent line from the back of dryer and see if it runs any better,also unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,remove the bottom panel and then remove the metal duct that the filter slides into and clean it out,vac and blow out all lint with a shop vac on the motor and inside the cabinet,if your vent line is a long run,remove it from the back of dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,first check outside to make sure there isn't a cage or anything blocking the air flow before you blow out the line,if there is remove it and don't put it back.let me know how you make out and good luck.

SOURCE: Kenmore dryer does not heat up. Mod#110 60912990

First I would make sure that you have 240volts coming into the dryer. Then I would check the thermal cut-off in is a fuse on the housing of the element. that should be it but if not look for the heater relay.

I have a 2005 hyundai elantra heat blows cold air i changed thermostate and radiaor and blew out the heater core any sugestions

check to make sure the blend door is changing from cold to hot. With the engine off and the key in the run position set the blower motor to the highest speed. Turn the temp dial to full cold and wait 30 seconds. Now turn the temp dial to full hot a listen carefully. You should hear a difference in sounds as the blend door sweeps through its full range.

If it is working and the engine is fully warmed up feel the heater hoses where the pass through the fire wall. One should be very hot and the other should be pretty warm. If one is hot and one is significantly cooler than either the heater core is plugged or there is air in the heater core causing a block in flow.

You either have a weak spark from your ignitor which needs replacing, a bad elec connection to the ignitor, or it needs to be repositioned nearer the burner. Check connections and try repositioning it before you install a new on.

There is a flow sensor in the circuit and it is not sensing the lower flow from just the hot water. When you put it on heat though it does.

My Whirlpool accubake is taking a very long time to heat up

It is possible that the igniter that lights the gas is getting weak... as they weaken it takes longer for them to heat up hot enough to ignite the gas. When you light the oven, you should be able to see the orange glow of the igniter within a few seconds (it's similar to a cigarette lighter from a car) within 20-30 seconds you should hear the gas light.

Protherm 100EC boiler not firing up

You likely have a flame sensor problem.

If you can wath the ignition proccess, see if you ever notice a flame. If yes, and it then shuts downm, you have a flame sensor failure, replace the sensor and clean the flame burners and orifices.

If no flame at all, then your ignitor is failing, or you are not gatting gas to the ignitor.

Gas Furnace is not heating anymore.

the fan you hear come on at a call for heat is most likely just the inducer motor. the click you hear is probably the relay for the hot surface ignitor which should glow red, then in turn ignite the main burners. your going to have to determine if the ignitor is coming on. if it isnt the ignitor is bad and will need to be replaced. if it comes on and than shuts off after a few seconds the ifc board is probably at fault

I have no heat in my 1995 maxima

You need to check your coolant level first & make sure its up where it should be. If that doesn't cure your problem, or you've already topped it up, please get back to us.
