Question about Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Electric Dryer
I have read your " repairs scenario" of the dryer not heating. Great help !!!
my question is you have mentioned the thermo cut out and the high limit thermostat I can't see them as listed parts on the drawings do they go by another name? It is a fridgidaire Model GLGR341AS1 gallery
Okay...the write-up you read was advice for ELECTRIC dryers. The model number you provided is for a GAS dryer. You have a burner assembly in your dryer instead of a heating element. The likely culprit on a gas dryer that no longer heats, is the igniter. The following link will shed some light on how the igniters work:
I know the link is for advice on how to replace an igniter in a gas range, but the theory of operation is the same. Read the top portion of the link I provided.
The igniter will become weak with age and will either stop glowing, or will glow, but not draw the necessary current to open the gas safety valve. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the dryer cabinet without ignition. I would recommend you check first to see if the igniter is glowing. You can see an illustration of what I'm talking about by going to searspartsdirect.com and entering your model number. If you look under the "Burner,Valve" heading on the next page, the igniter is listed as item 74. Let me know what you find.

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there.
3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary.
4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter.
5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible.
Hope this helps...
