On your gas valve , there are 2 coils . Replace both as they come together . When they get warm due to electricity going thru them , one of them will open ( short ) and not let gas come thru until it's cooled down . Turning the dryer back on later , it will work for a short time , then stop heating again until the dryer is cooled back down. Replaceing these coils will solve your problem .

My frigidaire gas dryer will not heat


Good Morning Margie,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire gas dryer heating. I also see that the vent is plugged. You definitely do not want that vent plugged. Your dryer needs proper ventilation in order for it to work correctly. The reason it might not be heating is due to the fact that that vent is plugged and is not getting enough ventilation. Unplug that vent, make sure that there is gas going to the appliance, and that the gas supply valve is open.

-Best Regards-

Dryer will not stop spinning when door is closed


Good Morning Jeff,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer, model# GLGQ2152ES, to stop spinning, even though all the lights are off. It could possibly be the different boards and sensors miscommunicating with each other. I suggest giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. When you turn the power back on, if the dryer is still spinning, without you wanting it to, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Simple. Your solenoids are overheating because of age. Most American dryers use the same 2 coils:

The flame sensor, ignitor, and coils all are wired together in a complicated circuit so that the coils will not operate untill the ignitor is out of the circuit and is screaming hot. If the ignitor is open or bad the coils will not operate because the ignitor becomes like a thermocouple when screaming hot. So if the ignitor is working and the flame sensor is working properly AND the dryer will work some and then quit, I would suggest to you that the coils are aged and when they get aged they tend to fade and die when used once or twice. It is an aggravating thing to diagnose. Replace the solenoid coils and rock on dude!

My frigidaire gallery model fsg748gfs gas dryer starts to heat up but stops after a few minutes?


Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

Hi!!

I seems like you have a plugged up filter and/or an obstruccion in the exhaust hose/pipe.

Remove and clean lint filter, also remove exhaust hose/pipe from back of dryer and remove any lint accumulated. Check also the exhaust hole in the dryer.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Dryer spins but dosen't get hot


Since you indicated that it had an igniter I assume you have a natural gas or propane model. I had some trouble with a Hotpoint dryer and replaced the igniter. That didn't solve the problem. I then decided to just change the gas solenoid and the flame sensor at the same time and it worked fine again. I got them both cheap from Ebay from the same seller.

The flame sensor tells the machine if the ingiter was able to light the gas burner. If it doesn't sense the heat it will turn off the gas solenoid so your house doesn't fill with gas. The gas solenoid is an electrical valve that lets the gas flow into the burner. You should be able to hear the gas solenoid click when it opens and then your igniter will glow and start the flame. If it shuts itself off within a minute of that then I would suggest the flame sensor as a starting point. If it never clicks then I would start with the solenoid.

Good Luck and post back here if you solve it for the next person with your trouble.

Dryer works and cut off


Sounds like heat over load switch is tripping due to lint build up , check around heating coils for lint build up if electric and make sure that you have free air flow from exhaust vent

Frigidaire Gas Dryer - Heats for 1-2 minutes then gas shuts off


Most of the time, the culprit is a bad gas valve coil(s). Replace those, and your dryer should return to normal operation.

Ingiters don't work - all burners


Unplug cook top. remove drip pan with screwdriver. Use hair dryer to completely dry area that might have gotten wet during cleaning. This may take five minutes. Put unit back together and plug in cook top.
