You have a flame proving device that senses the flame. It is located on the last burner in line looks like a piece of thick wire. Take some steel wool and gently rub the outer surface 4 or 5 strokes is all it takes to remove the carbon that has built up. Let me know how it turns out. Ken

Hello,

The ignitor is bad again,if it (ignitor) comes on but no flame/heat its the ignotor again, what would make the ignotor go bad so fast (usually last 10-15 years) is a problem with the oven burner, so now BOTH the ignitor and burner would need to be replaced,if it is 15 years old the ignitor is readily avaliable but the burner may not be

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Slow to heat up


Most likely your ignitor is going bad. This is the part that glows before the gas comes on. It has to draw the proper amperage to allow the gas in the oven to light and burn. Some ignitors glow and look good but are not drawing enough amperage for the gas valve to open, with the problem you are describing.

Very fragile part, easy to break,
good luck.....

My dryer is not heating,we have checked all of the settings, and the barrel is spinning so can you please help, the unit is about 4 yrs.old I have a maytag neptune


check ur breaker first, dryers will run on 120volts but wont heat unless have 240.

if electric check ur heating element, thermostats, and thermal fuse for continuity with a meter.

if gas check the ignitor,thermal fuse, and secondary gas coils,

Kitchenaid gas oven very slow to start - can be 5 - 10 minutes before I hear it kick on. For a while I could get it to start by turning on a gas burner, but that is 100% effective. Any suggestions? Also...


Replace your ignitor, this is a very common problem. As the ignitor gets older, it gets weaker. When it gets weaker, it usually starts out by not giving good temps in the oven, then it starts to take longer and longer before it lights the oven burner, then it stops lighting the burner completely. A good ignitor heats up fast, allows the current to flow through to the gas valve, opens the gas valve and lights the oven burner within 30 to 50 seconds. When you order your ignitor ask if their is a cheaper generic ignitor for this model. Their can be a huge price difference in some units. You can also have a bad sensor, control board, gas valve, or wiring problem, however for the last 15 or so years every job I have done with your problem has been an ignitor. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Gas dryer 4 yrs young and won't heat. Drum turns.


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Bottom burner does not light, broiler works


Looks like you'd want a 74007498 oven igniter, which generally goes for about $75. Personally, I'd fix it, but the final call is your, or course. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya lowers my score. Thanks.

I would start by replacing the ignitor. It could glow enough to light the oven, but to maintain the burner, it often re-ignites several times during a cooking cycle. I have had the problem before, replaced the ignitor and all was well. You should be able to find an ignitor for under $40 online. Just google 'Maytag oven ignitor' and you should find many offers. My sister just bought one for $19.99!

Oven problem.


Only 81/2!! most are only expected to give you 5 good yrs anything else is extras. Your problem may be a defective gas valve (safety valve). Also it may be a defective ignitor - the more likely to go bad (if replacing stuff replace ignitor before safety valve. is there a glowing in the oven? does the flames come on any at all?
