Question about Maytag MDG2706A Gas Dryer
The igniter turns on, then the flame goes on for about three seconds and shuts off. After around fifteen seconds, the flame goes on again and again shuts off, and so on and so on.
HI! I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM YOU ARE HAVING IS CAUSED BY A PART CALLED THE THERMOCOUPLER. THIS IS A SAFETY DEVICE THAT SHUTS OFF THE GAS IF THE FLAME GOES OUT, BUT IT NEEDS HEAT TO MAINTAIN THE PROPER CIRCUIT. THIS MEANS THAT THE THERMOCOUPLER IS BAD AND NOT HOLDING THE GAS VALVE OPEN AS IT SHOULD. IT IS A SMALL THIN ROD TYPE THING THAT WILL BE VERY CLOSE TO THE PILOT OR IGNITER AND IT HAS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY TO ALLOW THE GAS TO CONTINUE TO FLOW. WHAT IT IS DOING IS GETTING JUST WARM ENOUGH TO OPEN THE GAS VALVE, BUT THEN THE IGNITER STOPS AND THE BAD THERMOCOUPLER COOLS AND TURNS YOUR GAS OFF. YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE THERMOCOUPLER AND YOU SHOULD BE BACK TO WARM CLOTHES IN NO TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. ANY QUESTIONS, JUST REPLY AND I'LL HELP MORE.
