I'm assuming you're working on a gas stove. Take the top off after removing the burner trim.

Not heating


Hi,

If your dryer is not getting any heat, you need to make sure there is nothing blocking the front of the dryer. Air flow is key to efficient drying.
  • Check the heating element, burner operation, ignitor, thermal fuse and the wiring (power cord).
  • Visually inspect your heating element for any broken or burned areas. The heating element is a coil made from a nickel-chrome alloy, called nichrome.
  • Check Burner, if it is working the flame should be clean and blue.

Good Luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated

Our dryer stopped blowing out warm or hot air. All the buttons still work and cool air still comes. Any suggestions?


Hi,

Check the heating element, burner operation, ignitor, thermal fuse, and the wiring (power cord).

  • Visually inspect your heating element for any broken or burned areas. The heating element is a coil made from a nickel-chrome alloy, called nichrome.
  • When the burner is operating properly, the flame should be clean and blue.
  • If the ignitor is cycling without the burner lighting, you probably have defective electrical coils in the gas valve. These coils look like black cylinders with wires coming out the top of them, and are located near the burner valve assembly. When they get power, they open up and allow the gas to get through to the burner. If this is a new installation, make sure the gas valve is turned on.
  • If the ignitor doesn’t glow, look for a white or yellowish discoloration, or for a break in the ignitor. If this is something visible, just replace the ignitor.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

Dryer turns on, drum turns, all appears to work fine, but we get no heat. Pulled front panel and noted the heating element/ignitor does not ignite. Amy experience with this? Bad ignitor? bad gas valve?...


You may have a bad spark ignitor.. Check the vent tubing for any blockage of clogged lint build upfirst.The moister sensor detects that and will keepthe heat off until the the lint clogs are cleared

No heat


Most likely you have a burnt element....A good handy man could replace the element fairly easily.. Cost of a new element about $50-$75

Pilot light comes on but heat does not come on.


You will need to take out the ignitor, and if it has some black carbon build up you can take a piece of sand paper and remove the carbon until the ignitor is shiny, replace the ignitor and then give it a try.

The oven takes a long time to start heating. somtimes if we turn a burner on and off the oven starts you can see the starter element glowing


If this is a gas oven, and the starting element you're referring to is the ignitor, replace the ignitor, it's "worn out". Depending on your make and model the ignitor is usually either flat or round. Part numbers respectively are 12400035 and 4342528. The ignitors can be substituted for the ones with the same shape regardless of the brand.

Dryer does not heat and continues to run/will not shut itself off


This is probably due to a faulty heating element, something the average do-it-yourselfer can replace. Disconnect the power supply, then refer to the owner's manual for procedures to remove the front panel from your specific model. If your dryer has a toe-kick plate in front, that's all that needs to be removed.

1)Locate the heating element heat shield, a box on the lower right side of the dryer.
2)Using a screwdriver, pull the two screws at the front of the heat shield. Remove the front of the heat shield or, if it is on a hinge, flip it down.
3)Remove the wire leads from the heating element terminals by pulling on the leads. To avoid damaging the wires, do not grab them when you pull off the leads.
4)Remove the holding screw on the side of the heat shield that connects to the heating element.
5)Remove the heating element by sliding it out of the heat-shield box. Install a new heating element and secure it to the heat shield with the holding screw on the side.
6)Reconnect the wire leads to the new heating element by pushing them onto the terminals. Place the heat shield front cover back into position and secure it with the mounting screws.
7)Replace the front panel or toe-kick plate and reconnect the power supply to the dryer.
