SOURCE: 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

Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.

SOURCE: Ignitor heats and starts the flame then later on

This is a classical sign of weak coils. there are 2 coils in the machine that turn the gas on as they energize. i see this problem very often and i'm 100% certain that this is your problem. please contact me for further info in needed. thank you :)

SOURCE: Flame does not cycle on Gas Dryer

This problem is caused by faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves. It is recommended that if any of the gas valve coils are suspected of fault, that they both (all) be changed at once. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Testimonial: "The suggestion worked perfect. The parts house sold them as pairs and the actual change out was easy."

Gas dryer runs but no heat. Took it apart cleaned all ducts and lots of years worth of dirt out of entire machine, looks brand new. Tested all components.


You did quite a bit of work. One other thing that controls the ignitor is called the flame detector. Its the black box looking thing mounted on the side of the big pipe the flame shoots into. Should be 2 wires going to it. A quick test to see if the ignitor comes on is to tie the 2 wires together. If you see the ignitor come on thats the bad part,

Kenmore 500 series gas dryer has no heat and no glow. Thermostat fuse has continuity. Replaced ignitor and coils. bypassed flame sensor and still have the same problem.


Hello,

Having checked or replaced what you have thus far here a few things still to check

Cycling thermostat in blower housing,in addition to thermal fuse it must have continuty to be good

Timer check wiring diagram in control panel and check for continuty that are supposed to be closed when set to a normal heat cycle

Motor switch heat circuit check again with wiring diagram and see which wires on motor switch must be closed when running so dryer will heat.This a built curcuit asurring the dryer will never heat when motor is off

If your model has it check heat relay in control panel for continuty on heating circuit for relay(not the circuit that closes relay)

as far as power to the ignitor the hot side comes from timer to and through the thermal fuse and cycling t-stat, to ignitor.the neutral comes from neutral wire on cord to and through motor when motor is running and motor switch is closed

so on ignotor plug check hot wire to ground(not neutral) if has 120 vac to it timer/t. fuse/ cycling t-stat and flame switch are all good and its the motor switch is the problem.The motor switch can not replaced seperatly and must replace entire motor

Oven does not heat up


most likely you have a bad bake ignitor part number WB13K21 and it's around 80 dollars,unplug the machine or shut down the breaker,remove the racks,remove the bottom floor of the oven,remove the flame panel and you'll see the ignitor attached to the burner tube,unplug the wire harness going to the ignitor,remove the screws holding the ignitor in place,plug in the new ignitor and put the screws back in,turn the power on and put it on bake,the ignitor should start to glow and the flame should lite in around 40 seconds.there are other ignitors that you can use in the stove,the only difference is that you cut the wires going to the old ignitor and splice in the new ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts to connect the wires together,it just doesn't have the harness connector on it

The glowbar ignitor has gotten too weak to light the gas.
Replace the ignitor.
Unplug the range.
Turn off the gas ****.
Remove the oven racks.
Remove the bottom oven pan.
Remove the flame spreader grate.
Remove the ignitor and replace it.
Make sure the new ignitor is wired correctly.

Dont know how to get to the ignitor to remove it . its a kenmore gas stove the broiler works but the the oven dose not get hot on bake..


the bottom of oven has a removable cover . two screws in the back l & R then lift out the cover from the back side and the burner flame spreader in under that cover . Remove one sometimes two nuts form the flame spreader and in the center on the back of the burner is the ignitor . remove the two phillips screws and lift out the ignitor. make sure the wire's are disconected in back . reverse this prorcess and you have completed the instalation .. mm

When I turn the oven on it doesn't ignite. After a few minutes I smell gas. Can I assume it is the ignitor? If so how do I test for continuity?


Probably a weak ignitor. Turn off the gas supply to the oven. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader panel. Put a clamp on amp meter on one ignitor wire and turn the oven control on. If the amp meter reads less than 3.2 amps,replace the ignitor.

Bottom oven will not heat up.


Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

Kenmore gas dryer is not giving out heat


Check the fuse and control thermostat on the blower housing. They provide power to the gas assembly.
If all of that is good then check the flame sensor. If the flame sensor is open then no power will get to the then the common wire to the coils and ignitor will be open causing no heat. Read more
