My Ruud achhiever 90 starts to fire but as soon as the blower fires the burner goew out. I also noticed that the "igniter" on the end isnt firing. Could that cause the burner to not stay lit when the


There is an ignitor and a flame sensor. If the ignitor does not ignite the gas after a time, it goes out. If the flame sensor does not detect ignition the gas valve closes. When you start it you should see the ignitor come on like a light bulb and glow, then the gas valve opens and you get ignition. Then the flame detector turns on when the ignitor goes out. Flame detectors are like a chrome wire that has one connection to it and it sits part of the way in a burner. They get dirty and corroded. When that happens it shuts down. You can clean the flame detector with steel wool of scotch brite pads. Dont get too carried away doing that though.

Maytag clothes dryer flame won't stay lit


Usually this is the two gas valve solenoids, though it can also be a bad flame sensor or thermo. The solenoids are easy to change, they are right in front and usually have two screws holding them down. Order new solenoids by model number. Once you have the new ones you will see how they look and where they go on your gas burner. Just make sure you make not of the wire positioning and install the new ones the same way. Usually 3 wires on one side and two wires on the other. Parts are pretty cheap. Before I replace these I put an electrical testor on the solenoids to test if there is 120 volts coming in when the burner stops working. If their is 120 volts and the ignitor is glowing then you definitely have bad solenoids. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

This is the closest model # I could find but I have a gas dryer model TGDX640EQO and it doesn't heat up but does tumble. My husband thinks it is the ignitor, how would you determine that?


First clean all the dust and lint from around the burner and its components, including the sensor which 'tells' the dryer that the ignitor is on or the burner is lit.

There are two different types of ignitors. The most common glows a bright red to light the burner. The other gives off a series of sparks.

In either case, a visual examination should tell you whether the ignitor is working. Before you start the dryer, remove the burner access panel. Have someone start the dryer while you look into the burner unit to see if you see the 'glow plug' or the 'sparker' trying to light the burner. If not, the ignitor is probably bad.

If the ignitor is not the problem, look for dirty or defective sensors that will keep the burner from coming on. If these sensors do not sense the light given off by the ignitor, for safety reasons the burner will not come on.

Hope this was helpful.

Dyer heat only stays on for 10 seconds and then turns off


Make sure the lint filter is clean and the vent duct is not clogged. Check all the way to the vent outlet. Then: Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Gas neptune dryer fires up for 45 sec. to 1 min, then goes out


Could be a couple different things,Possibly a thermostat or high limit that is kicking out too soon,also has a flame sensor next to the burner that can come and go.if you have a toggle switch or pushbutton switch you can unplug the unit take the two wires off the flame sensor (black box about the size of a cigarette pack on the left of the burner)plug them into the switch start the dryer Turn the switch on till the igniter glows bright,turn the switch off and the burner will light if it stays lit at least till it gets to temp replace the flame sensor.(It won't cycle with out flipping the switch each time)

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.
