Question about Dryers
Ray, Frank here....How are you? Fine I hope
Here is the most common problem with the situation you have
The vent tubes get clogged up with lint and the moister sensor detects that. The sensor will keep the burner off until the lint is thoroughly cleaned out. I suggest if the vent tubes are the type that pull out and expand, get rid of that and replace with new ones. Sheet metal tubing is the best for it can be cleaned continously at anytime'
There is a moister sensor that detects the restriction in the vent tubes and will shut off the heat if blocked up
If clean and still no heat replace the moister sensor if the dryers spark ignitor is heard clicking upon first starting up the dryer If no click is heard the ignitor is at fault as well
