Flame won't stay on, Kenmore Mod 417.9386220

Igniter comes on, then gas, and flame, but only stays on for a few minutes before it goes out. It appears to be valve related, as I am still getting 120VAC to the coil pack (from the orange wire only, checking N back to grey wire at the timer). Sometimes there is more gas and a larger and hotter flame, like it should work, but this is intermitant too, and will eventually quit and then flame goes out altogether. Also, will not light again unless I unplug and wait several minutes, and sometimes it won't relight for several hours... what gives?

If sound like a lid switch issue. Open the top of the washer to get an access to the lid switch(located near the doorframe). Look for a loose wire or a broken switch. In case there is no loose wire or broken switch, you should replace the switch. Good luck!

SOURCE: Machine powers itself on-off / Error code F-01

I would try to find out what the "F-01" means but if you need to replace circuit board they normal are easy to "unplug and replug" wires. But SEARS tech's would be best to repair. If can't find a source to tell you what F code stands for , call SEARS service and when he diagnoses problem you could see or ask him how to replace my tech is helpful that way, then it only cost the "service casll" rate and not hte return part replacement cost also

SOURCE: Gas Dryer model 110-77974110

the coils on your gas valve are going out , this is why it will work at first and stop , the coils heat up and wont open the valve again after they are heated.
I thought they were some what cheaper than they are now but still not too bad. you can try this part number search on ebay for the best price I can find.

SOURCE: My kenmore Elite HE3t Giving a code F 06

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.

NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

Gas dryer does not heat igniter glows red gas valve clicks but no flame


Hello,

Since the igniter glows i am wondering if within 1 minutes does it go off??or does the igniter just stay on??

If the igniter just stays on and doesnt go off the problem is going to the FLAME SENSOR

if the igniter goes off but no flame the problem will be the GAS VALVE COILS

I have a Maytag Model PGR5710BDW gas range. The bake igniter lights up and the gas ignites after 2 minutes or so. Then the flame goes out after a few seconds and then reignites and this cycle repeats ...


Hello,

Yes it is the igniter its weak and can not stay within normal range to stay on allowing the flame to stay on.

The part number for that igniter is 74007498 it can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at

80 series kenmore gas dryer. Won't dry clothes. Igniter glows, gas valve opens, flame lights. Stays on for about 45 seconds then flame shuts off. About 1 minute later it lights again but it doesn't stay on...


Did you get a solution yet? - our dryer is doing the same exact thing....last time it was not lighting at all and we found out it was the thermal fuse - very cheap fix...this time the symptoms are exactly as you described.

My gas dryer starts fine than the flame goes out


replace the coils. i promise you. and here is a guide to most gas dryer problems that even a kid can see.

starts fine, cycles off, igniter comes on, hear a click, and no flame.-coils.
(can also be intermintent)

igniter stays on, no flame.-flame sensor

no glow from igniter.-igniter


remember, always allow about one minute for ignition.

Kenmore Gas Dryer ignites then stops heating after ten minutes.


If the glow bar comes back on and the gas does not light,replace the gas valve coils. If the ignitor does not come back on,replace the flame sensor.
