Frigidaire FDG36RES2 Gas Dryer Stops Heating

The dryer has stopped heating through the entire cycle, come to find out it only heats at first and when its been sitting between loads. I watched the dryer with the top lid up. Found that the ignitor lights up and then i hear a click, after this the flame comes on. After the flame runs its normal cycle and goes out i wait for the next flame to be lit. At the next time the ignitor lights up/clicks/and no flame. I found from other posts that the gas valve coils were a common issue, replaced them today and the dryer is acting the same. i have a feeling from other posts that the gas valve itself is bad but not sure if its worth replacing due to part cost alone and the dryer being old. Any suggestions for what to do would be great. I did notice that the flame seemed to shine blue with some red. hard to see as there is not an inspection panel on this model, but i have read the flame should be constant blue so this the condition i see may be incosistent gas flow. thank you!

Instructions

    • 1 Open the cabinet beneath the kitchen sink and remove the contents. Turn the hot and cold water supply valves off.
    • 2 Turn off the power to the breaker controlling the garbage disposal switch from your breaker box.
    • 3 Place a pan beneath your old disposal. Use the pipe wrench to remove the old disposal's plastic outflow pipe from the U-shaped outflow drain.
    • 4 Use a screwdriver to remove the plate on the bottom of your old disposal. Disconnect the wiring with a pair of needle-nose pliers.
    • 5 Spin the old disposal counterclockwise inside its mounting bracket until it comes free.
    • 6 Line up the new disposal with the mounting bracket and slip it up and onto the mounting bracket. Twist it to the right to tighten it into place.
    • 7 Remove the screw holding the wiring plate at the bottom of the new disposal. Once you have removed the plate, connect the ground wire to the ground nut. Connect the positive wire to the positive wire terminal inside the disposal. Once these wires are connected, put the wiring cover and retaining screw back into place.
    • 8 Use the pipe wrench to attach the outflow pipe to the rear of the disposal.
    • 9 Turn the water and electricity back on and test the new disposal.

SOURCE: Dryer heats once or twice then stops heating

It's likely one of the 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 number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 12001348.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

The disassembly procedure is covered beginning on page 3-10 of the manual listed at the link below. Operation and replacement of coils is covered at page 3-32. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.


Reverse process to re-assemble. Good Luck

Frigidaire crown gas dryer runs fine but after about 10 minutes it turns itself off and i cant turn it back on for about an hour


From the description you give the most likely cause of this problem are bad gas coils or a bad gas valve.

You say you see the flames for 10 minutes before it stops heating but you don't mention if the igniter is continuing to glow. One thing we need to know is if the igniter continues to cycle on and off when the dryer stops heating.

There is a small square plug on the front panel you can remove to try and visually check if the igniter is glowing.

The problem won't be the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats. Once the fuse is open the dryer won't heat but it won't start to heat after 20 minutes.

After the dryer runs ten minutes and stops heating then check if the igniter is still cycling on and off. This is important because if the igniter is working then the thermostats and igniter are okay.

When the igniter glows at some point you might hear a click and the igniter would stop glowing. The click is from the flame sensor and after the click and the voltage is removed from the igniter at the same instant the voltage is applied to the gas coils and you should get a flame.

You might hear a hum, buzz or vibration from the coils when this happens. If the coils seem to react to the voltage but there is no flame then most likely the gas valve is bad. If the coils don't do anything then most likely the coils are the problem. The gas valve and gas coils can work for 10-15 minutes and then heat up and stop working till everything cools down.

One other thing I must tell you about the gas coils. Here is a link to the gas coils you will need. These are the new style that will last quite a bit longer the the older one. The coils are like the spark plugs in your car. The will need replacing in time due to wear. Below is a video to walk you thru the repair process.

Dryer is occasionally leaving rusty looking smudge marks on clothing.


don't open door (stop dryer) until cool-down and dryer stops. many times the heating element is still hot and when you stop the dryer in the middle of the cycle, the rear of the dryer where the heating element is, will scorch your clothes.
