SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer Model 110 Heating Element & Thermostat

believe that model has a relay under console..pull console end caps off remove screw on each end roll console back..if your model has an electronic bd it also has a heat relay it will be the one with 2 large red wires.. a quick ck would be to unplug power remove the red wires and tape bear ends together pug back up turn on dryer if it heats unplug and exchange the 2 relays the one with the blue wires is the motor relay and is same as heat relay try again if motor fails to start bad relay if motor starts bad control bd

SOURCE: no glow plug glow, hooked up a pigtail, it works

Your service manual, or wiring diagram for this machine should be located in the control panel housing.
Most likely you have a blown thermal fuse. This part is located on your blower housing right behind the lint screen duct. The power for your gas valve/burner assembly is routed through this part and will be cut off should the drum temperature get too high during operation. The part is a skinny white colored item with a black strip down the center, a quick check would be to see if it has continuity, or simply bypass it briefly to check it. DO NOT leave the part bypassed.
To access the part remove your lower front access panel, remove the lint screen for m the dryer and then remove the two quarter inch screws on either side of the lint filter housing to remove the housing.
The part number is a 3392519 thermal fuse.
Good luck to you on this.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes 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 different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Air conditioner is on but the igniter for heat keeps glowing

Check for power from C to W in the air conditioner unit electric control panel where the thermostat wires connect.
If it has voltage, check the thermostat's same terminals with W wire disconnected there. If it has voltage, the thermostat is calling for heating, if it has no voltage, the wiring is defective.
If it has no coltage in the air conditioner control panel, a relay heater relay may be stuck or the heating circuit wiring is defective. Something is keeping the glow coil energyzed.
To get by without fixing the problem, disconnect the glow coil.

Rheem Classic heater:Fan comes on and blows cold air when set to heat. The electric starter plug seems to glow inside the unit several times as it is running but it appears to fail in igniting any gas. ...

your fan is comming on because it is on a timer after the thermostat calls for heat. if your glow bar is getting orange 3 times is normal before lock out. check for gas to furnace. there should be a union or flex line at the unit. crack the connector or can apply a soapy water or just rely on you hearing. did it "hiss"? or blow bubbles? now you know there is gas to the unit.after that you will need a volt meter or test light. find a wiring plan on the inside of the fan door, hopefully,. check for voltage 24 volt at the coil on the gas valve, wire in to ground, toward the end of the glow each time. no voltage bad board. voltage there check orifices on burner manafold. spyders like the small hole.if not plugged valve maybe bad. low gas pressure is always suspect. 5"-14" wc into the valve 3.5" wc out,for natural gas

Furnace glow plug lights but main burner doesn't go on

Hi, on a call for heat from your thermostat, you get a signal to your ignitor module to send voltage to your pilot glow plug. As it glows it sends a signal back through the flame sensor to tell the MGV, (main gas valve) to open and start the burners. When this glow plug glows, you should here a click at the gas valve as 24 volts is sent to it to open. Unless the gas is off for some reason, which I doubt you turned it off, the gas valve is shorted out. You might want to try this first, with the power off the flame sensor that is beside this glow plug as we call it may be dirty and not sending a signal back to open this valve. It is about 4 to 6" long and round, made of porcelin with a metal tip on the end. Take a piece of sanding cloth or steel wool and clean the tip, so it gets nice and hot from the glow plug. Turn the power back on and cycle the thermostat on heat again. The inducer motor will start first, then close the pressure switch and the plug will glow. After this, it will send a signal back to the module to open the gas valve. Hopefully this is the problem, just a dirty flame sensor. If that didn't do it, the gas valve is bad and will need to be replaced. Please rate me on this as I know you will be kind. If its a dirty flame sensor, you should be up and running in no time at all.

The glow plug relay is responsible for the duration of glow plugs, this needs to be the starting point. You should get a 12v out for so many seconds when ignition is switched on.
I have taken the cover off relays in the past, cleaned up the internals, sprayed with circuit cleaner and got plenty more years out of them, worth a try.

Check that thermostat (heat sensor) is calling for heat. If it is OK then replace glow plug (also called the igniter).

Whirpool gas dryer not heating up

Take a volt meter and call for the unit to come on. Take the connector off to the igniter and check for voltage to those wires. If you get voltage but it does not start, then you know the igniter is bad. It could also be a limit switch. There will be 2 wires that terminate to a small disk with a button in the center. Depress the button firmly to reset it. It should be located near the burner. If it is the timer, you will need to locate and isolate the power wires leaving the timer and check voltage there. Hopefully this information is helpful.

Lennox furnace not heating up

sounds like the ignitor is bad. there shoule be a 2 wire plug going to it. after the inducer motor starts, you can check the voltage at the 2 wire plug located under the burners. you can unpug it to check voltage or you can probe the back side of the plug with a volt meter. if you are getting 120v but it is not glowing, it is bad. you can also ohm it out while it is off.

My oven doesn't work but the burners do, what's up with that?

I was looking for a solution to my problem. In reading the comments, I can probably provide more information than is given here. My Kenmore gas oven won't ignite. I have over 25 years as an electronics techincian so I am very aware of lethal voltages. I unplugged my stove, it is a 120 volt model. After pulling the panel off so I could get to the thermostat which is the piece the knob goes on, I plugged the stove in and checked to make sure I have 120VAC to the thermostat. I have a red wire which has 120Vac, the thermostat probe wires, and a yellow wire which goes down to the back of the oven.
My red wire had 120Vac. I then unplugged the stove, very important at this point, and meaured with an ohmmeter across the yellow and red wires. When the oven is in the off position this is open. When I turn the oven on it is shorted. That should confirm the thermostat switch works. The next thing that has to happen is the glow bar/igniter has to glow. This is like all gas appliances, it has to glow to heat the gas valve and turn the gas on. My igniter doesn't glow so I ordered a new igniter. If your glow bar glows, it could still be the glow bar/igniter or the gas valve is not allowing gas to flow even after it is heated up.
If anyone sees a problem with this procedure, please let me know.
