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

    Hey Frank, thanks for the advice. Went to Home Depot and bought the sheet metal kind of exhaust tubing, replaced, same problem. Heat will come on for about 30 seconds then shut off. Do not know what my next step is. Could it be the M Ignition Coils? Thanks Ray Walawander

    The moister sensor the detects the the flow of exhaust for obstruction is weak causing your problem

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

Frigidaire Gallery Commercial Heavy Duty GAS DRYER Model GLGR331AS1: gas lights and dryer operates for approximately two minutes. Then the gas goes out and approximately 1 minute later the igniter comes...


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!

Gas dryer does not heat igniter glows red gas valve clicks but no flame


Hello,

Since the igniter glows i am wondering if within 1 minutes does it go off??or does the igniter just stay on??

If the igniter just stays on and doesnt go off the problem is going to the FLAME SENSOR

if the igniter goes off but no flame the problem will be the GAS VALVE COILS

Hello,

What your describing sounds pretty much like the sympthons of weak coils that open the gas valve. It is a fairly common thing that happens with gas dryers so i have written a tip that explains in detail what happens when gas valve coils are weak.

My gas dryer starts fine than the flame goes out


replace the coils. i promise you. and here is a guide to most gas dryer problems that even a kid can see.

starts fine, cycles off, igniter comes on, hear a click, and no flame.-coils.
(can also be intermintent)

igniter stays on, no flame.-flame sensor

no glow from igniter.-igniter


remember, always allow about one minute for ignition.

Kenmore Gas Dryer ignites then stops heating after ten minutes.


If the glow bar comes back on and the gas does not light,replace the gas valve coils. If the ignitor does not come back on,replace the flame sensor.

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer MDG300AW and the flame goes out.


Well, first of all, the flame is not supposed to be continuous... it cycles on and off during the dry cycle because it staying on would incinerate your clothing. However, there are magnetic coils that do often go bad and cause the valve to stop opening after the beginning of the cycle... so you get a flame in the beginning, but if you were to sit there for 5 minutes with the dryer running, you would find that the flame stopped lighting completely.

They are pretty easy to replace... you will have to unscrew the little plastic pieces from the inside edge of the door, and unscrew the hinges and remove the door, then pull the front panel off (pull at the top).

Of course... UNPLUG before opening any appliance.

here's a picture of what you are looking for... they are completely outside the gas line, so changing them is very simple and doesn't require any handling of the gas. they are held on with a small metal plate.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.
