Question about Dryers
I have the parts, if it is a 40 year old pilot light model
Posted on Dec 03, 2011
First, let me be sure that you have a pilot light on this dryer. Most dryers (even the older ones) use an electric ignitor to ignite the gas flow. This ignitor will glow red or orange, and a flame sensor will start the flow. If you are not sure that you have a pilot light, try starting it a couple of times and let it run for about 30 minutes. These units sometimes get air in the lines (especially if they were opened for repair) and the air has to get purged from the system before it will light completely. Let me know for sure about the pilot sysem, because they are so very old, you usually cant get parts for them anymore. Thanks!!!
