Depending upon how old your dryer is newer models have an electronic ignition and you do not have to light it at all like you would a water heater or something similar. If it is a bit older then there should be a step by step instructions down at the bottom where you access it at. Let me know the model of dryer and I can help you out quite a bit more.

I moved and cannot locate the pilot/ignition source on the dryer to relight it.


It's been many, many years since dryers had pilot lights. Look for an igniter that may have gone out. It should be behind a service door.

Hooked up roper dryer and it's propane everything seems to be hooked up right but won't get hot or even heat up. This is first time ever having to use propane. Any idea what it might be or could have...


1.is the pilot light lite burning.
2. if pilot light light is on ,does the blue flame of the pilot light touch and heat up the thermocouple.
the dryer will not turn on the heat if the pilot flame does not touch and heat up the thermocouple.

3 is the dryer plugged in to the electricity.
4. is the dryer actually getting electricity.
If the dryer has electricity and the pilot flame is touching the thermocouple, then try buying and installing a new thermocouple.

****have you purged the air out of the gas lines so that the dryer is actually geting pure propaine and not just air getting pushed ahead of the propaine.

how old is your dryer, if new, warranty service will trouble shoot & repair for free.

you need to tell us more so that we have some facts to work with. vagueness does not cut it.

My gas dryer, 6 yrs old, isn't getting hot.


best way out for you is to have it serviced, it's most likley to be a thermal couple bevice not working if this is it the pilot light wont stay alight as well,,, the thermal couple has the pilot flam playing onto it and it holds the gass on,,, if the pilot light go's out for whatever reson the thermal couple switches off the gas suply to make it safe,,,
hope this helps you out?

Pilot


It probably has an electronic pilot light. It should light by itself. If you have a real old one, you have to open the cover at the bottom, and light the pilot.

How do I light the ignite pilot light


Most new dryers don't actually have pilot lights. They use an electric heater that turns red hot, and ignites the gas at the right time. If your trying to light the pilot light (which probably doesn't exist) because the gas isnt being ignited,,, its possible that the electric igniter needs to be replaced.

Kelvinator dryer does there a pilot lamp or all electric


hi Gas dryers use an electric ignition device rather than a pilot light to light the gas heater: An element becomes hot and glows like the filament in a lightbulb. Electric ignition systems are always sealed; you can't adjust or repair them. If an electric ignition device fails, call a professional service person for replacement.

How to light the pilot?


If this is an electric dryer, it doesn't have a pilot either. If this is a gas dryer it will have an electric pilot. but then if it were a gas dryer, it would have a removable lower front panel for servicing the burner. So you must have an electric dryer. if the dryer runs but does not heat, the electric element is most likely at fault. If you really were looking for a pilot light on an electric dryer, I must recommend that you call a reputable appliance service regarding repairs so as to not jeopardize your safety.

Pilot


I'm assuming you have a dryer with a pilot light and not a spark lighter. If the pilot will not light, get a service tech. Gas is dangerous.
