Amana furnace. The furnace goes through the cycle but wont ignite. I have already checked the ignitor.


Try blowing out the jet Burners with compressed air especially the one nearest the Ignitor. Right through where the gas comes in. These can get dusty and cause ignition failures. Also check to see if the Ignitor is in the path of the burner and has not somehow gotten bent. 100 or so ohms on the Ignitor should be good.

My gas dryer keeps shutting down the heat cycle and I have changed the hot surface ignitor


The gas valve assembly consists of the ignitor, the flame sensor, and the solenoids.
In order for the gas valve assembly to operate, the ignitor must come on, the flame sensor must then shut the ignitor down in order for them solenoids to activates. Them selonoids won't activate untill the ignitor is glowing. Once the ignitor is glowing, it then acts as a thermocouple though the secondary winding on the primary solenoid. As long as you have igniton the ignitor keeps the power to them solenoids on. If fer some reason the gas did not ignite, then after the ignitor cools back down the gas would be shut down and that is your built in safety. So what goes wrong? With a bit of age them solenoids work a little then overheat and quit, making it a very difficult diagnosis. But now you know the secret right?
Swap out them lame solenoids and rock on!

Does not heat,gas won't ignite.the glow rod comes on ,but no gas comes out to burn


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 outthis electric no heat tip...

Gas furnice will run but doesnt seem to ignite...no flame burning! but it does run an doesnt blow heat?


check the ignitor if this unit has one...have a volt meter ready.unplug unit and unplug the ignitor place the leads to your meter in the ignitor molex plug one lead in each hole of the molex plug. turn the unit back on with power restored the small enducer draft motor should come on and then activate the pressure switch which has a hose connected to it. once it activates should send power to ignitor ..fi you are getting power but the ignitor is not glowing when connected then you have a bad ignitor. you did not post model mut if it is gas unit it will have either a ignitor or a pilot assembly... if it is a pilot assembly repost and one of us will be glad to walk you through checking it...good luck to you

I have a atlantis gas dryer that doesn't blow hot air anymore.


The Gas burning control didn't turn on. Common problem is a thermal sensor problem. You can see the ingitor turns on then turns off without burning. The thermal sensor will sense the heat from the ignitor to turn on the gas valve. If it doesn't sense the heat gas won't be turn on. If gas is not on the ignitor will turn off after a pre set time interval. Need to take off the panel cover to see what have been discussed here. Good Luck.

I've got a Roper Gas Dryer, Model RGL4634BW2, that will run but will not heat and the timer does not advance. It will continue to run until I turn it off. I see others on here with similar problem but...


It could be a fuse to prevent the ignitor to come on.
If the ignitor comes on then turns off then the ignitor is good. However the thermal sensor could be bad not giving the signal to a solenoid to open the gas valve. Or the thermal sensor is good, but the coil is bad so it could not open the gas valve. The gas valve has to open to have continuous gas flowing to burn in order to produce the heat for your dryer. Definitely the timer is bad that was why it didn't turn off for a period of time.

RHEEM RGLE-10EQAGS Gas Furnace - Intermitent. Fans come on, Hot surface Ignitor comes on, then sometimes Gas Valve opens and all is fine, Other times, gas valve doesn't open and Hot surface Ignitor goes...


The sequence is Igniter comes on, valve comes on, flame sensor senses flame. If no flame is sensed after 3 tries, a lockout occurs. If you have a volt meter, check for 24-27 Volts AC coming to the gas valve, if your getting voltage to the valve but no gas, your gas valve is defective. It could be a intermittent problem, no matter, still a bad valve. if no voltage to valve, defective circuit board.

No Heat


Hello
Welcome to Fixya


Remove the vent line from the rear and try the dryer.
If it heats then that means there is a clog or kink in the vent line blocking the vent air from exiting which will stop the dryer from getting hot!
If not then it's another one of these problems.

Defective Ignitor (Gas Only)
When heated the ignitor used on your gas dryer must obtain a specific high temperature
in order to activate the flame sensor. This ignitor is fragile and susceptible to cracking.
A hairline fracture that is barely visible to the naked eye is enough to change
the resistance of the ignitor to a point that is will not work properly.
You can test the resistance of your ignitor. You should get a reading of 50-400 ohms of
resistance.

If the ignitor gets hot and then goes off after about 10-15 seconds and there is
no ignition, the problem is probably not the ignitor. It is most likely the gas valve
coils that are defective.

If the ignitor comes on and stays on, it is the flame sensor that is defective.

If the ignitor is not getting hot it could also be one of the thermostats that is defective.
The power for the ignitor is passed from the timer, through all of the thermostats,
limit switches and fuses to the ignitor. So if you are not getting power to the ignitor
during ignition, you should check the continuity of the individual thermostats and fuses.
DRYER DOES NOT HEAT



Defective Gas Valve Coil (Gas Dryer Only)

If the gas dryer will light once but will not relight until it cools down, it is likely the gas valve coils are faulty. These coils loose some strength when subjected to heat. When they become old, the addition of heat may be enough to prevent them from opening the gas valve when hot. However the coils still work when when cool.

An easy way to diagnose the coils when the burner is not lighting, watch the ignitor. If the the ignitor glows for 10 to 15 seconds but no flame is created, then the coils are faulty. If the ignitor is not glowing the problem is elsewhere.

Recent Customer Symptoms:
The dryer burner doesn't always come on when starting. If the burner does come on, once it goes off if won't come on again until the dryer cools down.



Defective Flame Sensor (Gas Dryer Only)
The flame sensor's job is to monitor the ignitor for sufficient heat
to ignite the gas. A properly operating flame sensor will pass a
continuity check under room temperature.

Common Symptoms
If the flame sensor is defective in the open position,
the ignitor will not get hot when the dryer is started.
However, if it is defective in the closed position the ignitor
will get hot, but the flame sensor will not allow the flame to ignite.
In this case, the ignitor will usually stay hot for a long period of
time.



Defective Thermostat
The thermostats are responsible for maintaining the proper temperature
in the dryer. Check the exhaust temperature of the dyer and if the
temperature is above 150 degrees, you will most likely need to change
the operating thermostat.

The thermostat can also fail in the opposite mode.
It can prevent the element from heating at all.
A failed continuity check at room temperature will verify this condition.

There are some special thermostats that are single pole double throw.
These thermostats are often used to control the timer when set to the
Automatic Dry cycle. If the dryer timer will advance in the Timed Dry
cycle but not the Automatic Dry cycle, then the thermostat could be the
problem.


Defective Thermal Fuse
The thermal fuse is in series with one leg of power to the motor.
If the fuse is open (no continuity) the motor will not run.

Location:
The thermal fuse is located in different locations according
to the model and brand of dryer.

Solution:
Check the thermal fuse for continuity with a volt/ohm meter.
If it is open, it will need to be replaced

Gas dryer don't heat, pilot ok


The ignitor is coming on so that means you have power to the gas assembly. Next the flame sensor should shut down the ignitor when the bi-metal inside it bends from the heat. This kills power to the ignitor, which allows for the power to activate the coils. The coils snatch open the gas valve and allow for ignition. The raw gas hits that screaming hot ignitor and ignites into a glorious flame, raising the temperature inside the drum. While that flame is on, the control thermostat is monitoring the heat within the drum. When the temperature gets to a round 140 F then the power gets killed to the gas assembly by the control thermostat. If all of that seems to be happening for say, the first time, then suddenly the ignitor comes on then shuts down and no flame comes out, then you have weak and intermittant coils. Replace these puppys:
