You might have a thermal fuse that has blown or a problem with the burner sensor or one of the burner coils is bad. If your not real familiar with taking apart your dryer you should call for service.

Gas dryer checked ignitor, thermal fuse and flame all had continuity still ignitor will not glow or heat


Will try to help you checked the igniter you say good if good does it glow if so clamp on one wire and take an amp draw while heating I like to see a minimum of 3 amps if glowing and 3 and above change the coils on the gas valve very cheap, now if not glowing and good ignitor the fun begins power comes out of the heat relay on the control board passes thru the thermal fuse then thermal cut off then hi limit then the flame sensor while also feeding the gas coils the neutral is supplied thru the centrifugal switch on the tumbler motor if the dryer stays running the centrifugal switch is good and you have a neutral bad flame sensor very rare since I am not there check the thermal cut off once blown it does not reset has to be replaced if all the fused I mentioned check good then check the heat relay on the board black and red wire stick meter ends in both off should read 120 volt when machine turned on should hear it click and meter should read 0 volts the boards seldom go bad but I have replaced a few in 5 years I am leaning more towards an open thermal cutoff

The electronic ignition on a gas water heater will not heat up and glow red to ignite the gas to heat the water atwood r/v water heater


You won't see any red glow until the burner ignites and burns for a while. Its only an ignitor and flame sensor, not a glow plug style.The ignitor has to provide spark for gas to ignite, then it also senses the flame and keeps gas flow coming. What exactly is happening when you turn it to on?

Our stove was not heating up, but the electric pilot was glowing red, we replaced the gas valve, and it still will not heat up....what do you suggest?


Hi, The problem may not be so obvious. It sounds very crazy but the problem can still be with the ignitor even though it is glowing and heating up. The gas valve will not turn on unless the ignitor pulls a aet number of amps. of power. When theignotor ages it can stop drawing the same amount of power and the gas valve won't turn on because it thinks that the ignitor is not owrking correctly. I went through this with a couple of different ovens, the first one really took me awhile to figure out. Change the ignitor and your oven will work again!

Gas dryer wont heat up, blows only cold air.what would cause this


Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.

Thermostat seems ok, but gas won't flow from oven burner.


Hi, Even tho the ignitor is glowing, it is getting weak and will need replaced. The ignitor is not pulling enough amps to open the gas valve.
This is very common problem with the gas ovens.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

No heat in gas dryer


Remove the front panel. Leave the door switch wires connected.
Turn the dryer on and look for the glow bar ignitor to glow red.
This may take a couple minutes.
No glow. Replace the ignitor.

Oven won't heat up


hi atdowhower,for your oven to heat the[ignitor]must heat up enough to open the oven safty valve.this happens by the ignitor drawing enough amprage thru the safty valve.just because it glows it may not be strong enough.or if you see no glow it may have a broke coil in that ignitor and wont glow at all.you wll need an volt meter to check if no glow.if soft glow,replace ignitor.shoul be very brite.God bless,tom

Electric starter gas oven model jgrp17 won't heat


more than likely your glow bar ignitor has stopped working or at least pulling enough amps to open the safety valve. The floor of the ovens come out may have a couple screws toward the back. take the floor out if a diffuser is on top of the burner remove it. the glow bar ignitor is mounted on the burner turn the oven on and watch it should glow bright red and in about 30 secs open the gas safety valve. If it does not glow you may want to verify power to the ignitor, more than likely the ignitor is the problem. If it glows but does not open the safety valev still replace the ignitor not pulling the required amps to open the safety valve. just put a little dish soap on the screws to the ignitor to help from srtripping them out
