You have a thermal fuse and a hi limit thermostat and a flame sensor to check.
Could be any one of the 3 or all 3.

Kenmore gas dryer 80 series runs but, will not heat. Should I replace the igniter if there is no light seen when lower panel is off and the dryer is running?


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...

Kenmore series 500 gas dryer not heating up. model # 77542600 Other than the ignitor what could be the problem?


Check the coils on gas valve. If igniter glows bright & no CLICK sound heard after a few seconds of igniter glowing, coils are bad, or flame sensor if so equiped

How do you relight the pilot on a kenmore 80 series gas dryer?


Their is no pilot light. The system uses a glowbarce9a48b.jpgOPERATION
The newer dryers use a silicone carbide ignitor for ignition. If the Fuse is ok482c508.jpg the gas assembly gets power from the control thermostatfa8083a.jpg. The flame sensor allows the ignitor to go cat go. The coils themselves10e9e78.jpg cannot open the gas because the ignitor is using a lot of power. When flame detectc5ddc7a.jpg gets warm enough then it shuts down the ignitor and power is redirected on the other side of the 3 prong coil. The ignitor is not finished. It now is hot enough to act as a path to the secondary coil which energizes and sends that raw gas to the 1800f screaming hot ignitor. Igniton occurs and keeps the ignitor hot. If ignition at this point were to fail the ignitor would cool down and shut off the power to the secondary coil. Clever ain't it? So what can go wrong? Worn out flame sensor takes longer to reset, ignitor open. Clogged vent012c9c0.jpg overheat fuse blown, bad thermostat, and faulty solenoids.If all is good it should continually shut on and off all during the cycle to regulate the heat

Heat cuts out during cycle


Not one coil,both coils. Replace them both and make certain the exhaust vent is not blocked.
