Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help. Thanks

I have a Whirlpool gas drier. It stopped heating up so last night my husband watched 2 videos on what to check out.


I would take a look at the radiant sensor. If it isn't detecting the light from the glow bar, it won't turn on the coils. Also, are you absolutely sure the glow bar is lit bright enough? Sometimes they will glow, but they won't glow bright enough for the sensor to detect them.

Good luck!

Lost glow plug function


Had same thing happen on my New Holland 1630. Took the buss bar off the glow plugs and pulled them out and tested with test leads on the battery. They glowed. Put a volt/ohm meter on the buss bar and turned the key to glow position, no 12 volts present. Checked for blown fuse, nothing blown. Looked at relays. There was a glow plug lamp timer next to the start relay. Wiggled wires going to timer while asking for glow with key. Saw the glow lamp flicker. Took timer out and opened it up. Found a broken solder joint on circuit board resulting in a loose capacitor. Soldered the crack and put back on tractor. That was it! Glow plugs work now.

Hi i have a whirlpool gas dryer LGR8648LWO and


If your ignitor (glow bar) is glowing that indicates the thermal fuse is okay.

With the symptoms you are describing it is acting more like an air flow issue than a component failure. Make sure your door seal is good, your venting is connected properly and try it again. I would not install the thermal fuse.

GE gas oven--Spectra--the oven does not heat--the broiler works, however


Most common problem is the glow bar ignitor. Lift off the bottom panel of the oven and remove. (Some have two screws holding the panel at the back of the panel.) Turn the oven on and see if the glow bar glows.
Even if the glow bar glows doesn't mean that it is working 100%. An amp probe is need to see if the glow bar is drawing the proper amperage to allow the gas valve to open allowing gas to come to the burner. The glow bar should draw about 3.5 to3.8 amps. If drawing more or less than this, replace the glow bar ignitor.
I hope this helps.

Gas dryer turns on but won't heat up?


There is a little cap on the front of the dryer you can pop off and look in to see if the glow bar is glowing when the dryer calls for heat. If the glow bar does not glow chances are it needs replacing. If the glow bar is glowing it could be a number of things.
It could be one of the coils on the top of the burner is burnt out. It could be the glow bar sensor is not working. (a black box with two wires comming from it located on top of the burner funnel). It could be a thermostat not working.
The first thing to check and this has happened before. Make sure the temperature switch is set for heat and not air dry.

My gas drier turns the heat on for a minute or so and turs off.


Sounds like the glow bar is comming on but no flame. Make sure the gas is turned on.
If still not working the problem might be one of the safty coils on the top of the gas valve may have an open circuit or the glow bar sensor may have an open circuit.
Depending on your skill level
unplug the dryer and shut off the gas. Using a multi meter check the resistance of the safty coils on the gas valve. There is a coil replacement kit you can purchase to replace the gas coils. Check the resistance across the glow bar sensor. It is located on the gas funel. It is a little black box with two wires comming from it. It should be a closed circuit untill it senses the light of the glow bar then the circuit will open allowing the gas valve to open. If open, replace.

Oven will not turn on but no error codes


Verify the glow bar is glowing in the oven. If not,replace it. If it is glowing,turn off the gas. Place a amp meter over one ignitor wire and turn it on. If it reads less than 2.8 amps,replace the glow bar.

Oven does not heat. Glow bar ignitor glows but no flame.


usually this means that your ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. When the ignitor glows and NO gas flows through you need a new ignitor.
