Their is no pilot light. The system uses a glowbarhow do you relight the pilot on a kenmore 80 - ce9a48b.jpgOPERATION
The newer dryers use a silicone carbide ignitor for ignition. If the Fuse is ok482c508.jpg the gas assembly gets phow do you relight the pilot on a kenmore 80 - fa8083a.jpghe control thermostatfa8083a.jpg cannot open the gas because the ignitor is using a lot of power. When flame detectc5ddc7a.jpg gets warm enough then it shuts down the ignitor and power is redirected on the other side of the 3 prong coil. The ignitor is not finished. It now is hot enough to act as a path to the secondary coil which energizes and sends that raw gas to the 1800f screaming hot ignitor. Igniton occurs and keeps the ignitor hot. If ignition at this point were to fail the ignitorhow do you relight the pilot on a kenmore 80 - 012c9c0.jpg down and shut off the power to the secondary coil. Clever ain't it? So what can go wrong? Worn out flame sensor takes longer to reset, ignitor open. Clogged vent012c9c0.jpg overheat fuse blown, bad thermostat, and faulty solenoids.If all is good it should continually shut on and off all during the cycle to regulate the heat

The gas had been turned off. how do I relight the pilot?


Shut gas valve off and let it air out. You can see the pilot with the little rod on it. Turn valve to pilot position and light a lighter to light the pilot. Hold the valve for a minute. If it stays lit, then turn valve fully to the ON position.

I have a kenmore 80 series gas dryer and the gas line to it was recently turned off temporarily and now it won't get gas to heat up now that it is back on. Is there something wrong w/ the pilot mechanism??...


When gas is shut off, even for a short period of time, air enters the gas line and must be purged before the pilot will light.

Hold down the pilot light button longer than you think you should have to, then wait about five minutes to clear any gas that might have escaped then try again to relight the pilot. You may need to do this two or three times in five minute intervals.

Hope this was helpful.

Kenmore 90 series propane gas dryer


Hi, You should not have a pilot light, There are electronic ignitors on the dryers. Unless this dryer is 40 years old, just start the dryer and the heat should come on.
If the heat does not work, there must be another issue.
Please let me know if I can help you further.

Thanks
Vic

How to light the pilot?


If this is an electric dryer, it doesn't have a pilot either. If this is a gas dryer it will have an electric pilot. but then if it were a gas dryer, it would have a removable lower front panel for servicing the burner. So you must have an electric dryer. if the dryer runs but does not heat, the electric element is most likely at fault. If you really were looking for a pilot light on an electric dryer, I must recommend that you call a reputable appliance service regarding repairs so as to not jeopardize your safety.
