Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Dryer stopped heating. Have used service instructions inside with multimeter...fuse looks ok, the hight limit thermostat shows good, and when I check the three resistances on the gas valve coil - terminals 1 to 2 read 1399 (1365 +/- 25 typ), terminals 1 to 3 573 (560 +/- 25) and terminals 4 to 5 read 1305 (supposed to be 1220 +/- 50. This made me think the coil was bad so I ordered a new one...but it reads the same. Does anyone know if the terminal 4/5 range is really 1270 max or if 1305 is ok. Next step - I think - is to order replacement machine control electronics ($170). Any other suggestions...help???
Does the limit switch have a reset button on it or is it an auto reset? Have you tried depressing the reset button on it if it is a manual reset? Have you checked your voltages to the gas valve, ignitor to make sure they are being called to come on? Trace your electrical connections from your electronics to these items. If they are not being told to come on, then you know it is the electronics. Also, have you checked the continuity of the door switch, and the ignite? These are all suggestions that must be ruled out before replacing parts.
