Re: frigidare gas dryer model crgf342as
Fuses(thermostats) will totally stop the glow bar from energizing, if your glow bar glows i would look in a good gas supply and second the coiols located atop of the regulator assy themselves ight be bad, part number 279834. $20 bucks for the coils worth a try.

If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.
It sounds like you have a gas dryer . The coils on the burner valve need to be replaced . They get hot from the electricity going thru them , and one opens (shorts ) until the dryer cools down . It should then heat again for a few minuted , then stop heating but still run . Your timer will not advance either , if set on auto , unless dryer heats . Without the model number , cannot give you the part number , so take it with you to get the part . It comes with both coils in a pkg .
your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.
Depending on the model, you may have a gas vale problem. The ignitor is working but gas is not being allowed to flow to the burner. It could also be one of the temp sensors or the control board for the system. Try unplugging the dryer and then replugging it back in after a few minutes.. If that fails to work after that.. provide brand and model so we can provide more detailed assistance...
