Question about Dryers
No resistance indicates "short" (completed circuit). NO reading is not necessarily no resistance. Are you using a digital or analog meter? Do you have a reference value from the manufacturer?
If you measured a piece of wire, your digital reading would be zero, your analog reading would be "short" and probably zero (the needle would move to the other end of the scale). If you measure air, (a known burned out light bulb for example) your digital reading would be floating (nothing) while your analog reading would be no movement of the needle on the meter.
I would expect an ignitor would indicate some resistance (that would cause heat).
You probably already know this stuff.
Can you see where the thing is located? I think Id be looking for an orange glow as I turned the device on ... that would indicate it was working.
