Question about Kenmore Dryers
I have a kenmore evenheat gas dryer, model # 110.73932102.
it runs but does not heat. I replaced the following parts already:
• High limit Thermostat
• Thermal Fuse
• Fabric Care Temperature Switch
After all of those parts were replaced I was getting the ignitor to glow red, then the gas to turn on and would run for about 1 minute and then shut off. I noticed that as soon as I could not keep my fingers on the exhaust pipe it would shut off (it would get too hot).
I went to the sears parts store and they were baffled. They suggested I test and replace the following parts:
• Both Coils
• Flame Sensor
I replaced both and now the gas does not even come on. I first noticed this after I replaced the coils. I put the old coils back on, still nothing. Then I replaced the Flame Sensor.
I'm about to buy a new dryer at this point. Just bummed that I've sunk so much time and money into this already.
PLEASE HELP! My wife is getting very frustrated as well.. :)
ps - about 2 years ago I had to replace the Thermal fuse and it did the trick.
On the back of the dryer near the fan blower housing is a thermal fuse, if this opens up ( no continuity ) the gas burner often quits but the motor will still run. If the thermal fuse is open/bad, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first and clean out the dryers air ducts. Sometimes it is a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time.
Thermal fuse parts help link...on blower housing cover, can not be re-set, must be replaced if is open (no continuity between pins).
