Question about Heating & Cooling
The heater wont quit running. Its just blowing cold air and ignitor seems to not be working Or atleast its not heating up to try and ignite. I tried to see if it was still pushing the gas and ignite it manually and there is no gas coming through either. There is fuel in the tank. just to cover that base. What could be the problem and potential fix.

SOURCE: does not heat
There is NO starter on a gas dryer burner assembly. The burner is controlled by gas valve coils and a glow bar igniter. Once the igniter reaches the appropriate current level, the gas valves open and you have ignition. The common problem is a weak igniter. You need to do a current measurement to make sure the igniter is within tolerance. If it is within specs, then I would agree with docjohn174 about replacing the coils. If its not within specs, you need to replace the igniter. Depending on the type of igniter you have, the current rating is as follows:
TWO BASIC IGNITER TYPES:
Carborundum (Cylindrical in shape) – needs to produce 2.5 to 3.0 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
Norton (Rectangular in shape) – needs to produce 3.2 to 3.7 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
NOTE: There is a UNIVERSAL FLAT BAR igniter on the market as well, that can be used as a substitute if the igniter type that came with your range is not available.
I still need an accurate model number in order to confirm WHICH type of igniter you have.
