    There is no pilot light but, yes the burner was coming on for just a short while and then everything woiuld shut down. After waiting a few minutes for it to cool off, it would run on "air only" cycle. Now, it is totally dead and will not start running at all.

Burner lights 5-10 seconds shuts down. Good air flow. Gas smell at times out vent.


The burner will shut off for various reasons.

First, there is a sensor right at the burner flame. If the sensor does not indicate flame the gas is shut off to avoid filling your house with gas. It is usually a short metal rod. Oftentimes cleaning it will get it working again. Or the signal from the sensor isn't getting back to the controller, so check for loose connections.

This page explains it well.
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/flamesensor.php

There are some other sensors that will shut the heat down. A temp sensor where the hot air leaves the dryer drum. This is to keep from overheating the clothes and lighting them on fire. If this sensor is bad, or the wiring to it is not getting that signal back to the controller, the dryer will shut the burner down. Although 10-15 seconds is pretty short, this is a possibility. Try different heat settings to see if you get the same result. If it only happens on one heat setting you most likely have a bad temp sensor.

Another possibility is that the gas valve (solenoid) is getting near the end of its life and can't stay open long. This is not likely, but still possible since the burner does light.

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/gascoil.php

Next possibility is that the gas line is partially plugged. When the burner fires the gas pressure drops rapidly. When the burner goes out the gas sneaking past the obstruction raises the pressure back up.

Final possibility is a bad controller.

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Tappan gas clothes dryer: Burner problem


Hi,
Two possibilities are the coils on the valve or the valve its self. MOST cases the soils are the problem. How old is it? Do the coils on the valve have quick connects or are there wires coming out of them?

Dryer is gas model dg212 flame come on but will not stay on long enough to dry clothes


if burner lights but fails to relight after several shut offs suspect burners solenoids change both they come in a kit ..once the solenoids get hot they will sometimes open electrically and fail to reenergize after cool down they will open gas valve and alow burner to reignite..also be sure vent to outside to clean and vent behind dryer is not flattened or kinked has know flame to not be properly burning due to exhaust problems and flame sensor would shut burner down
