SOURCE: my whirlpool duet gas dryer (model ggw9200lw1) is taking too long

There is a rare chance that the gas supply is clogged. Dealing with gas pipes is dangerous business, don't fool with it unless you are experienced with plumbing. After checking a gas pipe, do a bubble check for leaks with dish soap from a sponge or sprayer. There are small filters and traps placed here and there in the plumbing of some units. They are similar to the ones on a washing machine hose, but smaller.

SOURCE: Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

SOURCE: television shuts itself off

i had the same problem with my set shutting off and was told it may be the ballast so i changed that but it still would start up and shut down after a few mins, then i was asked if the bulb had been changed and i had not, so i did change the bulb and have not had it shut down yet. :) (so try a new bulb)

SOURCE: Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle

Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

SOURCE: gas heater doesn't stay on longer than 5 minutes.

It sounds to me that your air flow is restricted somewhere. The first thing to check is your air filter. If that gets real dirty your restricted air flow will cause the hi-limit(hi temperature limit switch) in your heat exchanger compartment to over heat and open up your gas valve electrical circuit,thus, shutting off the gas to your burners. After the hi-limit switch cools down the furnace will go back to heating again then it will overheat again(you get the picture?) If it keeps cycling on and off like that the house will never get warm if it is cold outside. If your air filter is reasonably clean(you should be able to see light thru it easily) then the secondary heat exchanger could also be dirty, this is located above the indoor fan housing, you would need to pull the indoor blower assembly out of the furnace and look up above. The secondary heat exchanger looks similar to a radiator will fins. You can use a medium stiff plastic brush to brush the dirt,hair, whatever off of it. Another problem spot would be the cooling evaporator coil (if you have central airconditioning) located most likely above the furnace in the plenum(if your furnace is in a basement). This usually is difficult to access if an access cover wasn't installed when the airconditioning was installed. I would recommend an experience service tech to clean it for you. Also make sure all you supply air registers and return air registers are open . These are the things I would check first. Good luck!!

Under the gas valve is a removable panel. On models of that era there should also be a second panel behind the first. remove both.

the pilot light should be clearly visible.

If no pilot, turn the gas valve to OFF. wait 60 seconds. locate the tubes from the gas valve to the pilot location. turn the valve to pilot, and with a long match or grill lighter lit, place flame at the pilot location and press down on the pilot button beside the main valve.

pilot should light. If not shut off the gas and call a technician. If yes, hold the pilot button for 60 seconds, then slowly release. Pilot should stay lit. If not, shut off gas and replace thermocouple, start relight sequence over. If pilot stays lit, replace inner cover and adjust temp to 120 deg. If heater fires up, replace outer cover. Done.

If heater does not light, replace gas valve or entire unit. Water heaters have a limited life expectancy, and if my recollection is correct your unit is 10yrs past warranty.

Does't get hot


If you have a blown fuse due to an air restriction their won't be any power going to the gas assembly. The gas assembly consists of the ignitor, flame sensor, and gas coils. All are energized at once. If the ignitor fires up and then the flame sensor shuts down but no fire replace the solenoids. The work when cold but die when hot

Hi,
There is a LED on the control board that will be flashing, telling you why it shut down....
Then look on the inside of the cover to find out what is shutting the heater down...it may be a very simple problem...
It may also be that the gas pressure is too high and it is causing the heater to lockout...
You may need to have a pressure regulator installed in the gas line ahead of the heater...they are vey sensitive and if you are ina cold area often the gas co. will increase the line pressure in cols weather to get enough supply to their customers...

Problem new or old? How long you have unit? Sounds like not enough flow to keep burner on. Tankless need at least .6 gpm to keep hot water flowing or else the burner fires then shuts fires then shuts and you get a sandwich effect...hot cold hot cold. If you have new diverter valve in shower -vs- old two handle type try turning hot water ALL the way ON and see if hot stays hot. If it does stay hot then slowly adjust to cool and see if you maintain a good MIX for proper temp. If it goes cold again try this......LOWER control pad setting to a comfortable 105 degrees (ladies) 100 degrees(men) and turn shower valve all the way to HOT. See if your temp remains consistant now and if it does then problem solved. Tankless mindset...set temp on control pad and stop trying to MIX at shower valve. Thats how these things work. Thats why I install a control pad in each bath and one in the kitchen for adjusting ash temp during dishwasher on time. ditto for wash machine. You should never need to turn on cold water if your unit is set to proper temp at controller. Hope this helps

FAN STAYS ON LONG (HOURS) AFTER COOLING TEMP IS ACHIEVED


There is a built in delay on all HVAC systems to evacuate conditioned air (hot or cold) from the ducts -- it's just more efficient that way... but if it's staying on for more that 4-5 minutes at most then there may be a problem with the fan relay... or possibly a limit switch.

We have a customer that has a 751od who says at times thier water gets cold for a few seconds. No error codes on the remote. They claim it does it at different fixtures. Everything checks out from water...


A few things you should check:

1. Cross Connections - this occurs when cold water leaks into the hot water system through a fixture. In order to check for a cross connection: 1) turn off the cold water to the tankless 2) open up hot water fixtures in the home. The water should shut off at all hot water fixtures; if there is a continuous flow of cold water, then you have a cross connection. The most common place to find a cross connection is on old shower cartridges.

2. Ask the customer to check to see if the burner indicator is continuously lit during operation.

3. When the water goes cold at one fixture, try another near by fixture to confirm it is also cold there. If its hot at one fixture but not the other, then you have some issue with you plumbing. Tankless heaters can't pick and choose which fixtures to deliver hot water to.

4. Tankless water heaters all have a minimum flow rate that must be maintained in order to continually fire (.5 gpm for Noritz). Ensure their hot water fixtures flow at least this amount, or that the customer isn't mixing too little hot water at their fixture.

5. If they see the cold spurt during initial firing, they may be experiencing a cold water sandwich. When the heater moves from a standing state to a firing state it takes a short period to ignite and heat water. During this time it will be passing cold water through the system. Usually this cold water mixes with hot water in the line as it travels through the plumbing system, but if their fixture is very close to the heater, there won't be enough time to mix.

6. If debris has gotten into the flow sensor, this can prevent the unit from registering flow and cause intermittent firing.

Won't stay lit


You ignitor is working and sensor is working because it will fire up. so those pesky coils are intermittant because they get hot and quit cool off and work some more . replace them
