Question about Frigidaire FGQ332ES Gas Dryer
Frigidaire gas dryer trouble shooting ,gas dryer is taking too long to dry clothes problem:I checked the machine for blockage. There was a blockage just past the lint trap there was a piece of foam insulation glued to the back of the duct it had partly come loose and was blocking the air flow I pulled the loose piece out and while I had it apart I did a very good job of cleaning the front
I then pulled off the back of the unit and cleaned it out very well. I re installed the back and checked out the dryer .I also removed and cleaned the vent to through the wall and the hose to the vent. I listened for the gas to ignite on start up I heard ignition.
i went outside and checked for warm air blowing out the vent it was blowing hot air out of the vent so i thought all was fixed .It is still taking a very long time to dry the clothes I checked the timer it is rotating on its own (timer motor is ok) I took off the timer after noting all wires .and I checked all the settings for resistance across the contacts they were all about 0.08 ohms none were burned or dirty .I am at a loss as what to do next
Check the fins on the fan impeller. They may be covered in lint or not spinning adequately.

Besides drying clothes, dryers also remove lint. This fine, fuzzy material can cause trouble because it blocks dryer lint traps, clogs vents, and fills blowers. Lint can also gather around and in the tracks of the drum rollers, or in and under the pulleys and the drive belt. The result is poor clothes drying or -- sometimes -- no drying. To avoid lint problems, clean out the dryer's lint trap system every time you use the dryer.
To clean the lint screen, remove it from the unit. The screen may be located near or under the door sill, or in the top of the dryer near the control panel. It can usually be removed by pulling it up and out of its housing. Remove the accumulated lint to clear the screen; then replace the screen.
The exhaust vent also collects lint. Vent maintenance involves cleaning the lint from a screen in the dryer's vent exhaust collar and/or at the end of the exhaust vent where it sticks out through a basement window or through an exterior wall. To clean the screen, remove the clamp that holds the vent to the collar, or back out the screws that hold the vent to the collar, or pull the vent straight off an extended collar. Clean the screen thoroughly and replace it in the vent assembly.
To clean the vent itself, use a vent-cleaning brush (available at hardware stores) to pull out any lint deposits. Also check the vent run to make sure that the vent piping or tubing isn't loose at the joints, or -- in the case of flexible plastic venting -- isn't sagging between hanging brackets. Breaks or sags cause undue strain on the dryer's blower system, and can cause drying problems. If the vent pipe or tubing has become clogged with lint, remove the lint by pushing a garden hose or a drain-and-trap auger through the vent to a convenient joint. Disassemble the joint to remove the debris. With this procedure, it isn't necessary to disassemble the entire vent to find the blockage.You can head off problems before they become too serious by providing routine maintenance for your dryer's door gasket, thermostat, timer, and other frequently used parts. Let's discuss how to service these important components in the next section.

SOURCE: my dryer smells as if
huuum At your service!
You told me that your dryer smells as if something is burning after running only a minute or 2, and the damp clothes are "smoking" NOT steaming. Vent duct is clean as is lint trap
I find two answers are possibilities for this situation.
1.If it is an electric dryer one of the connecting wires to the element is lose or not snug, and the electricity is arcing across the gape, so you smell a tiny bit of burn.
2. Or the thermostat is malfunctioning and you need hands on service to diagnose and change this part.
DO NOT RUN THE DRYER!
It is a fire hazard!
Sounds like a Thermostat problem to me!!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
And can pay for them selves in only a few years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!
You will be fine
Bless You huuum
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF

I could not find the model number you listed. I also would be very concerned about over heating until we can find and locate the problem. Look inside the door and compare number with the on listed here at Fixya. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.
