    Margie, What is the model number? with a restricted dryer vent you have a thermal cut out or "safety fuse" that has opened and needs to be replced. They are not resettable, only replaceable.

Good Morning Margie,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire gas dryer heating. I also see that the vent is plugged. You definitely do not want that vent plugged. Your dryer needs proper ventilation in order for it to work correctly. The reason it might not be heating is due to the fact that that vent is plugged and is not getting enough ventilation. Unplug that vent, make sure that there is gas going to the appliance, and that the gas supply valve is open.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: gas dryer won't heat up

The ignitor can glow and still be defective.
Take a volt meter and check for power at the gas valve while calling for heat.
If you have voltage, replace the coils again.
No voltage, replace the ignitor and flame sensor.

SOURCE: dryer drum spins but no heat

These units have a limit switch is located near the burner compartment. It is about the size of a dime or penny with 2 wires going to it. In between the wires, there is a small button that you can depress firmly. This should reset the limit. If it trips again, you will need to replace the limit switch. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Turns on but wont heat up

Check the following areas to combat this issue. the most common problem spot will be a blown Thermal fuse.


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Affinity Frigidaire Gas Dryer does not heat


I have some experience, here, and here is what I have found.
You will need to take the dryer completely apart, and clean the lint out of the whole thing, you may be astounded what you will find. I have recently taken 2 full shoe boxes of lint out of a machine on the inside .If that doesn't fix it, you must then take a multimeter or an ohm-meter and find out what internal fuse or thermostat has "popped" and needs replacement. There should be as few as 3 of these, and may be as many as 7.
Be blessed.

Dry will run for 5min then shut down but will run ok in timer mode


Consider a temperature switch that cuts in(turns off) if the dryer gets too hot. Does Timer Mode run with the heat on. Your dryer vent may be plugged causing the dryer to overheat.

Dryer is getting hot but clothes are not drying


You have a vent problem. Eliminate all (if possible) flex duct (replacing with ridged aluminum pipe and aluminum elbows). Clean lint out of remaining vent pipe. Make sure vent is not crushed or obstructed, especially behind the dryer. If possible, make sure outside vent termination is not a two inch opening. (you want a full 4 inches)
