Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have made sure there was no obstructions in vents, no leaks from gas service to dryer gas pipe. if you have the gas shut off valve on & run your clothes on air , tumble only(not on heat settings), i do not smell the gas. i looked inside the peek hole in front when i turned dryer on heat settings & the flame burns yellowish blue, not consistant one way or another, when it is on heat temps. it smells like burnt gas. can you help?
I would strongly encourage you to identify the source of the gas leak as soon as possible. To do this, you can buy a product at most home depot or lowes department stores called SNOOP.. It is in essence..soapy water with a dauber in the cap. You use it by dunking the dauber in the solution and then putting the solution over gas piping joints. If it bubbles up at all..chances are that is where you have a small leak. You may or may not want to tackle that repair yourself since it poses personal risk if you don't know what you are doing. A build up of gas vapor in a confined space is very very dangerous and only needs a small ignition source to explode so please be careful. Probably a good idea to do all your troubleshooting ( if you decide to do this on your own ) with the windows open in that area. Do not use a fan or any other ignition source to move air/gas. Be careful.. and good luck...
