Why does my dryer turn off after it heats for about 2 minutes

Remember the igniter has to go on and off several times every little while. Its possible a bad igniter or Thermo coupler
that is your problem.

How to cook plain white rice

Cooking something as simple as rice can be very difficult.
Follow these steps to make the easiest, fluffiest white rice:
1. Place one cup of white rice in a sieve and run luke-warm to cold water over it for a few minutes until the water runs clear, not chalky.
2. Shake out extra water
3. Put one tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pot over a medium heat and fry the rice for two minutes, constantly stirring.
4. Add one and half cups of water (can be room temperature) to the rice and stir once.
5. Turn the heat to low and cover for ten minutes.
6. Stir the rice and test softness. If it is still very firm in the middle, stir it and leave over flame for another 2 minutes. If it feels soft with slight firmness in the center, stir it and remove from the heat and leave covered for five minutes.

It is important to note that rice will continue to cook, even once it is off the flame. So you always want to remove it from the flame at least five minutes before you would consider it ready.

Good luck and enjoy!

Maytag LDG7500AAL dryer ignitor lites up but burner will not lite

Their are 2 possibilities,based on exactly what is happeninh with your dryer.
1) If after the igniter came on,it stay on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and went off,but there was no flame as soon as the igniter went off? IF that is what your seening the coilds that open the gas valve are the problem. They are the 2 pod things on the top of the gas valve one of them has a plug with 2 wires on it,the other has a plug with 3 wires.IF no flame after the igniter went out those coils need to be replaced.

2) If the igniter came on and STAYED on and never went off within 1 minute?
for that since the igniter never turns off. The problem will be the flame switch. Its the black rectangle box mounted to the outside of the burner cone and has 2 wires attached to it.If the igniter did NOT go off the flame switch will be needed

The part numbers are,



The parts could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Weatherking furnace is starting and stopping

This just sounds like a couple of problems. First, your blower is designed to only turn on once the heat exchanger heats up, so the flame will be on for a minute or two before the blower starts. it sounds like your blower is cooling down the heat exchanger too fast and causing it to shut off so it can warm up again...check blower speed for heat, it should be the lowest speed (black wire). Blue=medium speed, red= high speed. second problem could be your flame sensor rod is calcified, you just need to locate this and clean it off with some fine sand is located in the flames near the burners. Also change your filters, for proper air flow through your heat exchanger.

Dryer flame on magtag wont stay lit. Pilot flares up but no flame

Thermocouple is probably bad. The pilot burns and heats a sensor which tells the CPU that the Flame can start, and the thermocouple heating up changes voltage with increase temperature and tells the CPU that the Flame is burning OK. If it is defective, there is no voltage change and the CPU assumes that the Flame didn't start for some reason, (Gas only!) and turns if off for safety. Over and over xx times.

Amana gas range bake burner does not heat

Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.

Gas Dryer not heating

You will have to replace "BOTH" of those gas solinoids. First, be absolutely sure that you "TURN OFF THE GAS". Then be sure the unit is unplugged. Remove the phillips head screws, remove the small metal top bracket, and slide the coil up and off. Then replace the coil, rehook your wire, and replace the metal holder. Upon testing, be sure to turn your gas back on. The first time it may act like it wont start, but let it cycle through a couple times to remove air. Good Luck And Be Safe. Jim
