You have a problem with security valve you can find a small pin next to the ignition candle, make sure that this pin is close to the fire when pressing the button, this pin needs to heat to generate a low voltage to the valve in order to keep providing gas.

Whirlpool dryer ignighter replaced still wont heat

The gas dryer assembly consists of a sensor, a ignitor, and a pair of solenoids. The flame sensor must have continuity when cold to fire up the ignitor. The ignitor must be hot and out of the circuit so that power can open them coils. So how do they do it? The control themostat is mounted very near the blower and filter housing. As the air passes by it on the way outside it judges air temp. When the temp drops below 105f the control powers up the gas assembly. The sensor, the ignitor, and the coils are all energized. The ignitor is wired cleverly so that while it is being powered by the flame sensor it takes up most of the energy required to open the coils. Once it gets heated up to ignition temp the bimetal inside the black box (sensor) shuts down power to the ignitor. It is so hot it is now a therm sensor itself. Full power goes to them coils and they can now open the valve. As the flame is ignited the 3rd wire on the holding coil is kept open by the heat from the ignitor which becomes a themo generator. Fascinating isn't it? My home movie:

Ignighter will not stop

Continual firing of the ignition leads is usually caused by the insulator material on them braking down (worn out). Even if only 1 is faulty all may fire even if they are in the off position. To fix you will need to replace the leads, cost verses time you should replace all of them as once 1 goes the others are not far behind.

Motor blows igniter works but will not fire

The motor you are hearing may just be the inducer motor, this is the one that creates suction in the system before the gas is released/ignighted. If the system turns on, and you can see a flame, and the gas ignites, but then the system shuts off, this is your blower motor not firing up. Check the leads that go to your blower motor, the bigger one that pushes the heated air to the entire house, if they are getting power then you may need to replace the actual motor itself.

Pilot ignights, keeps sparking then goes to lockout

I have the exact same model with the exact same problem. Did you ever figure out what the problem was? I just picked up a new gas valve, but maybe i should check the flame sensor first. In my systems case the electronic ignition fires, which lights the pilot, but it keeps firing even though the pilot light is lit. So I think it could be the flame sensor, how do I remedy that or check it out. I would like to check this out first before dropping in the gas valve, cause they arent cheap and I can still return it before its installed.

Are you referring to the Pilot setting on the gas valve knob? if so, you probably have a bad thermocouple or it is not in the flame enough to sense flame. Inspect the pilot to make sure the thermocouple is in the flame. If so, change it.

Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.

Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.

It sounds as though you have a bad thermocouple. Replacing the thermocouple which senses the heat from the flame should correct your problem. The thermocouple is a safety device which when working properly sends an electrical signal to the main gas valve that your pilot lite is on and holds the valve in the operational mode.

Gas cooker keeps igniting

Sometimes when I clean my cooker, and it gets damp, mine ignites like that. It soon stops after it dries out. Give it chance and see.

Dryer Ignitor

yes its right on the money it takes about 30 seconds for the ignighter to reach enough tempeture to open the safety valve this assures that the ignighter is hot enough to instantly ignite the gas before the safety valve will release it
