Have an LDG 710. Igniter does not work in unit

Have an LDG 710. Igniter works when direct line voltage is applied during a bench test, but will not work in dryer circuit (approx. 128 ohms instead of 400+). Tried to bypass the sensor, to no avail. The three coils were replace in 2006. Suggestions?

Can only think your not getting volatge to igniter so need to check that route. gas has to be present and is there a pressure switch for gas? checked your thermostats? safety's? heated cycle?

My dryer 66912691 will not start

start by checking the main power line to the program controller unit. Check the voltage output on the controller when the start is initiated. If absent check the door switch. If present then you can isolate the motor /motor drive and confirm the working of the motor with a bench test. If there is a capacitor start, check the value with a mains test or use one in parallel. Check the relay to the motor. Also this will confirm why the dryer does not work.

Refrigerator for lp-gas and electri operation RM 2652 RM 2852 It will not light on gas or electric

SOLENOID VALVE Check the solenoid coil with a properly calibrated ohm meter. Remove the connector from the solenoid and measure the resistance across the terminals. The proper reading would be 49 ohms with tolerance range of ten percent. . . Next, hook up a manometer at the test port. Then check for DC volts at gas valve terminals while the unit is in trial-for-ianition. If DC volts are present and pressure is low, replace the valve. If DC volts are not present at the valve while the unit is in trial-for-ianition, verify that the wire at Plug 3, Terminal 2 on lower circuit board have DC volts v (9V or more)
IGNITER First verify proper voltage at the positive (+) and ground (-) terminals of the ignitor. The reading should be within one volt of incoming voltage at the main terminal block during trial-for-inanition Next, remove high voltage cable from igniter. The igniter should produce a sparking sound, during trial-for-inanition. If not, replace the igniter. The igniter installed on the refrigerators as original equipment is part number 2931132019 (RV Gas Model 679). This igniter is rated 50 MA. This igniter may also be used on any other model
Hope this helped

How can you test igniter or how can you tell if it works upon taking it out?

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

unless you are knowledgeable, about electric stuff, i suggest you contact a service company.
the way to test is to apply the correct amount of voltage to the device....

The cooling fan doesn't work. How do I troubleshoot?

see if you have voltage to it, probe the harness with a digital meter while engine is running and ac is on to see if you have power to it-check fuses and relays (swap the fan relay with a known working relay out of another spot)-if you cannot resolve it then you will have to remove the unit and bench test it by directly wiring it to a 12 volt power source.

My alternater will be fine then it drops off to 9 volts. I have had my alternater bench checked and they say it's good so i replaced my battery. all cables and connections are good but it only works...

If it tested good during a bench test, and the problem was intermittent, the test was not done long enough to simulate the problem with voltage output. Replace the alternator.

Dometic RM3801. Propane ignition failure.

The older units has a 3 VDC glow coil the newer units have a 12VDC igniter.

Fromwhat your described above the next paragragh is your ignition system.

The igniter control voltages in the newer SPARK type igniters are (+) = 12VDC, (L)= high voltage lead (Spark plug voltage! I.e ruin your meter type voltage), (-)= Ground L is the lead that passes the HV spark from the control unit to the ignitor plate. The L lead should pass one heck of a hit if is workng correctly.
If not look at the HV lead to see if it is grounding out somewhere.

If the gas safety valve is not sensing gas pressure... you will not have 12VDC to the + terminal of the ignition moudule.

With the gas on and you have 12VDC at the ignition module + terminal then most likely the ignition module is bad.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker 8000 furnace. it will not light.I tested the igniter on my upstairs furnace and it will glow and light that furnace. I can manualy light the furnace with a match. flame sensor...

If you're sure the igniter is good and the controller is sending voltage to gas valve to open, but not to the igniter then, yes, the controller is bad. The only way to know for sure is to remove the igniter's molded plug from the board and test voltage directly at the board. You should get about 100-120 vac to the igniter.

My oven will not heat up the ignitor does not glow, everything else works model# jgbp26bea1wh xl44 series

the hot surface igniter can be tested for continuity
using a mutitester normally will have a reading somewhere around ten ohms can be visually examined for an area with white and a thin line where it is broken make sure oven is not set on timed bake voltage to igniter can also be tested will be around 120volts use caution whenever testing
cab unplug stove attach lamp to wiring and plup back in turn stove to back verify power to igniter to verify problem is igniter
