Question about Kenmore 800 7983 Dryer
Model number is 110.7683250. I have replaced the igniter but don't know what else to do.. Please help
If the ignitor is working properly (glowing visibly) and the burner will not light, then 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 and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty the gas valves will not open and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be changed at the same time and they will likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hi, I worked on one of these yesterday and have found that the thermal fuse blows first. If your dryer has the lint filter on top then the thermal fuse is behind the back panel and is located on the same duct as the lint filter.It will usually have blue wires on it instead of black or red.

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.
