Amana LG4409L Gas Dryer: Ignotor comes on when

Amana LG4409L Gas Dryer: Ignitor comes on when dial switched to Heat, but apparently no gas comes out of the regulator because the ignitor eventually cycles off. Switching the dial between Delicate, No Heat and Heat does nothing other than briefly turn on the ignitor. Should I assume the problem is the regulator, and order one?

The igniter or gas valve could be defective.

SOURCE: Amana ALG443RAW Gas Dryer will not heat up.

you can remove the lower acess panel (2) 5/16 screws along bottom. youll get a good view of workings there. turn on dryer (make sure a heat cycle is selected. you should see the ignitor light with in a few secs. if not unplug the ignitor(small white connector maybe 6inhes back from ignitor itself) and with a meter ck for 110v in that connection when unit is turned on, if you do have 110volts , you hav abad ignitor. ifyou dont get 110 volts you need to check the thermostat(s) located on top of the heater box right above the ignitor, if no continuity you need a new thermo.

There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. Jump the 2 wires out and see if the ignitor glows then. If so you need a flame sensor.

SOURCE: ignitor will lid for a few seconds

This is commonly caused by a weak igniter. Over time, the igniter wears out and does not draw enough current to open the gas safety valve on the burner assembly. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free-flowing gas from entering the dryer cabinet without ignition. The following link explains how these igniters work:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

I know the link is for a gas range, but the types of igniters and theory of operation is still the same. In effect, your igniter may have the appearance of working correctly by glowing, but it may be too weak for ignition to occur. I would recommend you try replacing the igniter.

If you have quesitons, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

I have a frigidaire electric dryer the drum spins but no heat cant find fuses that i have been told to cheack. help


there are no fuses on this unit, you will need to verify that the ignitor is not glowing. if it is glowing and the gas is not being let in. you have bad coils on top of your gas valve. if the ignotor does not glow you have a faulty ignotor.
