Only one side works

The right side of the fryer works. When I turn the the left side the blower starts but the ignitor does not work. I cannot see any flames through the glass. The right side (the working side) displays help when the left side is turned on.

From what you describe, either the ignition module, the ignition/pilot/flame sensor assembly, flame relay, WIRING, 24 volt supply (check the fuse on the left ignition module!!!), with both sides off, there should be two led's lit on the board. One is the 12 volt indicator, the other the 24 volt indicator.

On the wiring side of things, at the back of the printed circuit board (pcb) are two jacks. They are 12 pin keyed jacks. part of this wiring harness also goes to the power jack connection into the transformer tray. The rear pcb jacks, and the female PROPRIETARY pins get damaged from the oil, humidity, and even spices used in food preperation. There is also THE EXTREME HEAT DAMAGE that occurs over time to both the rear jacks and the pins of the jack! THE PINS ARE OF A SPECIAL metric size that fits ONLY that weathertight plastic jack. The pins take about a month to special order FROMGermany, METRIC, AND NO domestic pins can be substituted or work!

A set of speicalized pin removal tools are needed too for these particular pins to be removed from the plastic jacks, replacing a pin now also requires a specialized crimper too for each wire male or female pin!

Pay special attention to your ignition and flame sensing circuits! From the top left hand corner you will see the high voltage lead, a white and a green wire. Make sure the green wire is securely mounted on the circuit board ground terminal. Also make sure the contact of the green wire to the bottom of the pilot/ignitor/flame sensing assemby is also good!

Remember the high voltage spark is relient upon that green wire! Make sure the high voltage line is good, DUH TURN THE POWER OFF before playing with it!

Make sure both connections to the ignition module and pilot assembly rod is clean and tight! That white wire on the top if the pilot assemby is the flame sensing line. That white wire plugs into the ignition module on the uper left hand side, oposite of the high voltage line.

If you have access to a high quality electrical meter, one capable of mesuring MIRCO AMPS, not milli-amps, then put it in series with the white wire and the ignition module. 3 micro amps is the minimum to satisfy the flame sensing circuit needs of the ignition module.

Replacing that pilot assemby requires that meter talked about above. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE ASBESTOS GASKET on the ignition assemby, pilot/ignitor/flame sensing rod. If the gasket is damaged (very brittle) in any way and still used, THE FRYER WILL POP AND BACKFIRE! This part must be sealed properly, AND ALLIGNED WITH A MICROAMP METER to work and ingite properly.
I strongly suggest you call a qualified commercial kitchen appliance mechanic!

I have a Maytag MGD5800TW Gas Dryer. It does not heat up. What should I check?


First, Remove small plastic tab on front panel of dryer lower left corner. Start the dryer on regular cycle and observe what happens through hole. You need to know if ignitor glows orange. If you do not see the ignitor glow orange, replace the ignitor. If seeing full orange of the ignitor, do you hear a clicking and see the flame light?

Leave the dryer cycling while observing. When the dryer heats to temperature the flame will shut off. If the gas valve coils are bad the next thing to happen will be that the ignitor will glow orange again, the valve will click again but the flame won't light.

If the gas valve coils prove bad, based on the observations above, follow the procedure below to replace the coils. If NOT, come back with the results of your observations.

It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 279834.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Disconnect Power. Remove lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.

Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components will be on left. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

Reverse process to re-assemble.

Dryer blowing & rolling but no heat


There should be a little white plug on the front of the dryer. (lower left) Take that out and start the dryer. IF your ignitor is working you will be able to see it turn red through the whole. If you dont change the ignitor. then it will light the burner.
