I have an LG gas dryer only 7yrs old. Some loads are coming out still soaked after the cycle has finished. I've looked through the back of the unit and the flame is igniting. However, I have noticed that...


i am not a dryer expert,so i can only make these suggestions.
1.make sure the lint filter is very clean.
2.make sure the dryer is sitting level on the floor.(if it isn't sitting straight on the floor,the clothes may not be touching the sensors,causing the heat to turn on & off while drying.
3 do not overload the dryer with wet clothes.
4.pick the right heat setting for the amount & type of clothes.

Same problem continued: Got lower panel off, both coils OK, igniter works,flame blue, but flame shuts off after ~ 3-4 minutes. Does keeping lower panel off affect this?


Burner assembly will cycle on and off. There are temp controls that cause the on/ off cycle so the clothes don't get too hot or catch fire. It will cycle off faster when empty than with a normal load.

Furnace kicks on and heats up for 5 min. then will shut down - no flame - main blower will run for a few min and then the whole cycle will start again. flame sensor checked ok with meter at approx 5.0


What is your temperature rise during the 5 minutes it does run? Could be overheating and kicking out on limit switch. Watch the diagnostic light for a code. (3 blinks means this, 4 blinks means that etc.)

Janitrol GUPS075-3 Furnace burners will not stay lit


The first thing I would do is make sure the flame sensor is clean, this is a metal rod immersed in the burner flame on the opposite side of the igniter. If too much oxidation builds up on it, it will not allow the burner to stay lit. To clean, just turn off furnace and remove flame sensor and clean with steel wool and then reinstall. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the gas valve.

My house never gets above 72/72 degrees and at night its around 64/66 degrees. The thermostat is at 90 degrees. It seems like the ignitors do not stay fired up long enough. What do I need to replace,...


It could be a couple of things. without knowing the model number. Could the flame sensor not sensing the flame and cycling on and off or it may be an exhaust fan switch causing the flame to cycle on and off. watching the flame while its running might give an idea whats happening during the heat cycle.

My furnace lights but only stays lit couple sec can hear a click then goes out


Sounds like it is not proving flame, to check you need a meter that will read DC microamps. without knowing the brand I can't say what you should be looking for. Trane furnaces need at least 1 DC microamp to prove presence of flame. Usually you will see 2 - 2.6 or so, but it depends on what the manufacturer specs to prove flame. At minimum you can pull the burners out and clean them really good (especially the cross-over wings) because if the flame doesn't roll down to the sensor fast enough during the trial for ignition it will recycle and eventually lockout. If it stays lit longer than 20 sec, it most likely is proving flame and cycling off on high limit because the blower is not coming on. The typical blower on delay is 45 sec from the time flame is proved to when the blower is energized

I have a old in the floor heating unit. The pilot won't stay lit. replaced thermocouple 2x already. It stays lit all summer and once it gets cold it shuts off. Any help would be great. Cathy


relight and watch flame during cycle if it is going out once the fan starts you may have a cracked heat exchanger!!!!!!!!
When fan comes on it blows out the flame. This is a potentially life threating condition; have a pro take a look. It could be something simple but don't risk it!!!!!!

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer MDG300AW and the flame goes out.


Well, first of all, the flame is not supposed to be continuous... it cycles on and off during the dry cycle because it staying on would incinerate your clothing. However, there are magnetic coils that do often go bad and cause the valve to stop opening after the beginning of the cycle... so you get a flame in the beginning, but if you were to sit there for 5 minutes with the dryer running, you would find that the flame stopped lighting completely.

They are pretty easy to replace... you will have to unscrew the little plastic pieces from the inside edge of the door, and unscrew the hinges and remove the door, then pull the front panel off (pull at the top).

Of course... UNPLUG before opening any appliance.

here's a picture of what you are looking for... they are completely outside the gas line, so changing them is very simple and doesn't require any handling of the gas. they are held on with a small metal plate.

Flame only stays on for five minuts. After start


the flame doesn't stay on the whole drying time, it cycles.The thermal fuse allows machine to work and heat up but the cycling thermostat directs the flame to come on and shut off. Do your clothes dry fine?

GE PROFILE FREEZER FAN STAYS OFF TOO LONG..ITEMS DEFROSTING


The fan stops during the whole defrost cycle, there is a bi metal control that determines the length of time the heater stays on. This could be the problem, if the heater stays on for the time that is allowed by the defrost timer it will get too warm in the freezer. the bi metal is located on the evaporator.
