Frigidaire Gas Dryer not heating up, Model FSG447GHS0

Dryer ignitor Clicks and glows orange, clicks again and goes off and have flame that is couple inches high hitting top of round enclosure it is housed in but dryer is still not heating but sits and burns like this but with front panel back on I can hear the ignitor or something click every few minutes as though the air through the enclosure I guess may be blowing flame out because it burns fine and doesnt reclick with front cover off watching it. Any Ideas? Frigidaire FSG447GHS0 dryer.

Whirlpool dryer heating sporadically?


Remove the lower front panel and turn dryer on. The ignitor should glow bright orange first. After Ignitor glows brightly the next thing will be the flame lighting as the gas valve opens with a click. All this should happen within about a minute or so.

If flame comes on but goes off quickly It's likely one of the Gas valve coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The coils are purchased as a kit.

If ignitor goes off and no flame comes on the coil kit is likely needed because one coil is fully broken inside its case. If flame goes on but shuts off shortly the problem is as described above and the kit is needed.

There is a flame safety assembly on the can above the burner. If the airflow is poor. the flame tip may activate that safety and turn the flame off. Or the flame switch may be open and not allow the flame to come on at all.

The Flame switch can be tested for continuity with an ohmeter but the valves may ONLY show bad with power applied and can not be tested with a meter as they will test good.. Good Luck

Dryer is turning but not getting hot


what's the brand name of the dryer and send the model number,if it's gas does the ignitor glow orange but no flame,also if it's gas when you start it you should hear a click,if you don't most likely the dryer is clogged with lint or the vent line is blocked with lint and the high heat popped the thermal fuse,but let me know what you have

Kenmore gas dryer #41793142300 electronic start doesnt heat up


if you first have heat and then like 10 to 20 minutes later no heat you could have bad gas coils,on most gas dryers there's a plastic cap you can pop off on the front panel so you can look in and see the ignitor,if at first the ignitor glows orange and the flame lights then after a few minutes the ignitor glows orange and the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils,they are located on the top of the gas valve,easy to change.part number 5303931775 go here and look at part 71

Our dryer runs but doesn't heat. I have checked the obvious things but have not got into the ignitor etc. In order to access the burner etc. on this model do you have to access through the top. Older...


dont forget about thermal fuse on back of dryer white plastic with two wires can jump out for testing see if you get heat if so replace thermal fuse and clean venting adn venting flapper for opening and closing .... if no heat tthen open lint screen on top of dryer remove two phillips screws pull lid forward from back corners towards u and lift lid up remove front screws should be two 5/16 screws on in each corner and door switch harness connected lift front upwards and to the right remove drum belt tensioner bottom right side .. release belt remove drum set out of the way ... plug in dryer watch ignitor in burner tube bottom left corner should glow redish orange then a click and then a flame

no glow aslong as thermal fuse has been checked bad ignitor....

if glows and no click replace flame switch black and silver box on left side of burner tube

if glows and clicks and no flame replace two black round coils on top of gas valve

Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 75731 Dryer Won't Heat


The orange glow is the ignitor. 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.

Gas dryer won't heat up


The ignitor can glow and still be defective.
Take a volt meter and check for power at the gas valve while calling for heat.
If you have voltage, replace the coils again.
No voltage, replace the ignitor and flame sensor.
