My furnace did the same and I found a small crack in the hose going from the exaust fan to a presure switch. I cut the bad piece out and started working fine.

You did not state whether the flame ignites or not. If it doesn't, the check to make sure the gas line to the dryer is not turned off. You should hear the gas valve "click" while the ignite is glowing.
You can "crack" the gas line at the value to make sure gas is going to the valve.
If you have gas at the value, and do not hear the click, then the gas valve is not opening. Either the valve or the controller is not working.
If you are getting a flame but it goes out quickly, then it is possible the flame sensor is bad.
If you do not feel comfortable doing this, call a qualified appliance repairer technic

Hi,i have a master blp 25 space heater,it starts fine but when you release the safety gas valve after 15 secs it still goes out,so not sure which part would be faulty.Thanks


If yours has a Kanthal spark/sensor it may need to be cleaned up. The ignitor lights the heater and then it has to confirm the flame is there. If the tip has junk on it then it might light the flame but cannot confirm ignition.

For whirlpool duet GGW 9250 PW0 GAS DRYER How do you know if the gas solenoid are bad? I check the resistance as per manual and its within its limit. It ignites and flames come out but the flame only...


The gas valve solenoid coils work when cool that's why the resistance reading is within the limit but fail when heated. Bypass the thermostat on the burner funnel and if the flame still goes out too soon, the coils are weak and both must be replaced. The resistance reading is reliable only when the dryer does not heat at all or shall we say the flame does not go on at all and the purpose is to check the continuity of the coil.

FURNACE COMES ON AND SHUTS DOWN WITHIN 15 SECONDS


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control). When all else fails, check the ground connection for corrosion.

You have a white scale buildup in the gas valve outlet blocking the main gas flow. Take the valve apart and clean it.

Flame goes out in 15 seconds


check these: Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

No flame on left side/main valve. Right side lights, flames up


Try taking out the orifice on the burner that is not lighting and make sure it isn't blocked.
