Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I also have a MDG5500AWW Neptune Dryer. I have the front cover off and watch it consistently light once and burn for 5 minutes and then never. I watch the ignitor glow for about 20 seconds then it goes out and the flame never appears. This cycle repeats but it never lights again. I could not locate a parts list or diagram so I have no idea which part to fix. I would probably go for changing the coils but it lights so well when it first starts.
Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
This is the most popular system currently in use and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve. What happens in this style control system is that the thermostat or electronic control supplies power to the oven ignitor and gas valve which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and allows a specific amount of current to flow to the oven valve which is in the same circuit. If the oven valve senses the proper current flow, it opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it.
