Re: Frigidaire GLER341AS2

The only way to repair this design flaw in Frigidaire Affinity dryers is to have the experience in appliance repair to pry open and clean out the (inaccessible to the normal consumer) burner duct which will accumulate debris through the too large vent holes allowing the lint, small stuff drop down into the vent which in turn will burn up when it gets close enough to the burner to ignite. If you don't have the experience to manually disassemble the dryer, you're out of luck. There's no other way to clean out that sealed unit. If you don't clean it out, it can cause a fire.

Frigidaire model# GLER341AS2 humming noise

Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, GLER341AS2, is making a humming noise. It could be a possible issue within your belt, motor, or the blower assembly. The manufacture provides to a dryer preventative maintenance kit part number 5304457724 and it costs $45.12 plus tax and shipping. I would also recommend contacting a professional to help avoid any unnecessary purchases. I hope this helps. -Matt

My frigidaire dryer model number gler341as2 is giving me a burning smell why is that?

Hi kmcgilvery...
That burning smell is probably a lint build up in the blower system of the dryer.
You will need to remove the back of the dryer and look for the vent tubing going to the hose connected to the outside. Once you find the tubing then disassemble and clean the tubing and blower wheel of dust...then clean your flexible vent tubing you have attached to the back of the dryer.
