Tell your natural gas company that you smell gas around your gas dryer and you think there may be a leak. They will send somebody out, at no cost to you to check on the appliance (gas dryer). When that person gets there, they will re-light your appliance and if the gas dryer needs a new thermal coupler, they will show you where it's at and how to replace it.

Dryer not blowing hot air


When you say 220 gas dryer I'm not sure what you mean. If it's 220V then it should be an electric dryer, not a gas dryer. Troubleshooting is totally different between gas and electric. If it's electric (large 30A 220V plug) then good chance heating element(s) have gone bad. You can look up parts on www.searspartsdirect.com Have your complete model number. IF it's gas, it may be the pilot ignition has failed

How do I relight the pilot light?


Hi,
There is no pilot light on many of the dryers of today. They light with a hot surface ignitor.
Here is a tip that I wrote about dryers and no heat on gas dryers...

Dryer goes on but does not heat up no flame


No flame indicates that this is a gas dryer?
If so, there has to be either a pilot light, or an ignitor. If it has a pilot light, make sure that it is lit. If it isn't, the gas will not flow. The sensing bulb above the pilot light must be hot before it will allow gas to flow.

How do I light the ignite pilot light


Most new dryers don't actually have pilot lights. They use an electric heater that turns red hot, and ignites the gas at the right time. If your trying to light the pilot light (which probably doesn't exist) because the gas isnt being ignited,,, its possible that the electric igniter needs to be replaced.

Oven pilot light won't light


Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.
