I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty there is no gas flow and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time and will most likely come from the part supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer

Dryer won't heat up. Replaced ignighter, still


I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow to the burner. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hotpoint gas oven 5yrs old pre heats fine but then doesn't keep temp up.


You have either a faulty oven thermostat, or your oven door seal is faulty. You can check the oven door seal by doing the following (you will need a A4 piece of paper):

Open the door put the paper against the seal, close the door. Now pull the paper slowly out, if there is resistance then the seal is fine.

-------------------------------------------------
The oven thermostat test is as follows (you will need a stopwatch):

Turn your oven on to the lowest setting,when it goes to high flame start timing it the oven should cut down within 8 minutes, if this doesn't occur your stat is faulty.

I hope this helps

Maytag dryer - no heat


If this is a electric dryer the maine thing that goes bad on them is the heater element . If it is a gas dryer I would check the ignighter.

Electric ignighter does not come on in the oven at all


In most cases it is the ignitor itself. Eledtricity goes thru the ignitor and as it gets hot it allows more electricity thru to the gas coils, allowing them to open and let the gas go thru. The ignitors do get weak and will glow but that is all. Not enough electricity can get to the gas valve solenoids and let gas thru. Find a local parts dealer and give them your make and model # to order the part.
