Hello, I can assist you. If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Igniter Gas valve coils Thermal fuse Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too. The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

The most common failure with this symptom is ignitor failure. You do have to check the circuit with a multimeter to find the exact failing component, otherwise you'll end up blindly replacing parts til you get the right one, and that is just not cost-effective

Conversion kit to switch to natural gas on modelFG50069


The model you have (G50069) has been discontinued by Fiesta and replaced by model # FGF50069-584LP (they are very similar). Neither your model or the current model have a conversion kit available. You either purchase/purchased it as a Propane model or a Natural Gas model. Even the Owners Manual states that it can not and should not be converted from one fuel type to another. (See link below)

Hope this helped answer your question.

Is this a gas or electric dryer (part of a stacked set) Frigidaire


Model No. GLGH1642FS has a gas dryer.
Model No. GLEH1642FS has an electric dryer.
Model No. GLGT1031FS has a gas dryer
Model No. GLET1031FS has an electric dryer.
Model No. FGX831FS has a gas dryer.
Model No. FEX831FS has an electric dryer.

Get a stack model that suits your needs and compatible with your home's utilities setup.
Gas models are more common with most people because most electric models
require 240v outlets that many houses don't have.

Hi, I want to replace my Honeywell gas valve ( Model VR8440P2088), but I don't know with model is compatible to replace it. Can I replace it with different model ? Please help. Thanks


It is very important that you replace your gas appliance with the same model gas valve. Gas valves function diferently from appliance to appliance. Some open slow, some are two stage, ect. Your safety is very important!!!! To save a few dollars on a gas valve not for your application is dangerous.

Converting Weber from LP to Natural Gas


On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.
