Question about Dryers
Gas was temporarily shut off. After it was turned on again, the dryer does not heat and there is a strong smell of gas. Is their something I need to do to get the igniter working again? The room has been aired out.
Nothing to worry about . The problem you had was there was air in the line. Here's how it works. The igniter heats up then the gas valve opens. You had air coming out so it did not light initially . The air was followed by the gas supply but at that point the igniter was already cooling down. When you tried a second time the gas line was purged of all air hence normal operation.

It sounds like an air flow issue. There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. If the venting is not sucking the flame down the tube it will cycle very quickly and never reach the right temp.
