Question about Dryers
The burner ignites and stays lit for 2-3 minutes and then does not come back on again. However, the drum continues to turn for long periods of time on the Auto Dry settings.
First check the exhaust vent to the outside do you have a strong flow of air?
Is the lint passage free of lint? Are the blower vanes clear of lint?
A simple test for the sensors, bypassing the wires to the thermosensor and operating the dryer to test. If the heat now stays on the sensor is usually bad. Also if the flame backs up the safety thermo can kick out to protect against fires. Usually due to plugged lint somewhere.
