Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Everything you stated is the nuts and bolts of externally enticing the unit to cool. Given the symptoms your describing it seems that there is no coolant in the cooling system or there is a total blockage of the coolant. A blockage can occur at the capillary tube connection of the drier. The unit uses ammonia to cool and if it had leaked ammonia usually you note a not so wonderful odor of ammonia. The only way to know for sure is to have the coolant pressures checked in an operating condition. No pressure = no cooling. A tech would install a permanent saddle coolant connection on the lines and verify the pressures with refrigeration gauges.
Given the symptoms your describing there really is no other alternative.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dometic RM2611, Freezes fine, Refrig OK on AC, but warms up when on LP gas. Can I safely increase the orifice size from #53 to #58? Thinking that will increase the flame and produce more heat.

Check the gas regulator and the lines for particles of dirt. You have modified the refrigerator it is going to take some work to find what is wrong. Don't modify the orifice from what it calls for.

Diagram for speed queen model ags17awf

If you hear the click that means the ignitor is working and the flame sensor is working also because you hear the click of the bimetal inside the flame sensor. The sensor kills power to the ignitor and that allows the solenoid coils to open the gas valve. Them solenoid coils get weak with age. They work a little bit when cool the get hot and quit sometimes they simply go on out.

My gas water heater pilot light will not stay lit

Hi Mike,
1stly you have to understand what the pilot light does!
Yes, it lights the flame, but it protects you from gassing yourself!
that is thye main job!
hava a look inside!
In front of the pilot flame, (it might have a double flame... (one flame on the bottom & another on top.) is a curved piece of metal plate. The flame is supposed to heat that plate untill it it very hot! Thenm the plate bends down as it is a bimetyaalivc strip!
This opens the bsaety valve & you can let go.
The flame will noe stay on. If a gush of wind blows the flame out, the strip will cool & the safety valve close, preventing a dead family in the morning.
There is a newer system as well.
Right in front of the flame, is a pointed sensor with it's tip in the flame. . It has a electric cable running to a safety valve. This sensor have to heat up as well. It is a heat battery that activates the valve. See that it did not move!
If it heats up, & the valve does not keep the pilot flame going after a few seconds, the unit has to be replaced!
Safety first!

The Hi and Lo gas valve coils do they work in tandem ? Does the Lo stays on all the time ? Ruy ...

Their is 2 coil hosing but one of them has 3 wires and 2 coils inside it. The ignitor does 2 jobs, it lights the fire and acts as a thermocouple through the holding coil. If the flame does not ignite after the sensor detects the heat from it and shuts down then once the ignitor cools down the gas valve is shut down even if power is going to the gas valve. When the temp drops below 105f in the drum the control closes contacts inside allowing power to be supplied to the gas assembly. The ignitor and flame sensor along with the booster holding and secondary coils are all energized at once but the solenoids won't open the valve because the ignitor is hogging the power. The power supplied to it runs through the flame sensor. When the temp inside the sensor reaches a point the bi-metal inside tripped the power to the ignitor and the power gets diverted over to the secondary coil. Thr flame stays on till the temp inside the drum reaches 160f at which time the control thermostat opens circuit to the gas assembly and power is shut down. The drum continues to tumble and when the temp drops once agin below 105 the process is repeated and another blast of heat is shot into the dryer. So what goes wrong? Faulty flame sensor sticking/open, cracked ignitor, old coils that work intermittently or not at all when hot but work again when cooled.themobilian_2866.jpgthemobilian_2865.jpg themobilian_2868.jpgMore here.

For whirlpool duet GGW 9250 PW0 GAS DRYER How do you know if the gas solenoid are bad? I check the resistance as per manual and its within its limit. It ignites and flames come out but the flame only...

The gas valve solenoid coils work when cool that's why the resistance reading is within the limit but fail when heated. Bypass the thermostat on the burner funnel and if the flame still goes out too soon, the coils are weak and both must be replaced. The resistance reading is reliable only when the dryer does not heat at all or shall we say the flame does not go on at all and the purpose is to check the continuity of the coil.

Lgq8611lw0 dryer spins but no heat

Wow that a nice gas dryer. It features electronic drying. I would make sure the sensors are clean. They get a film of dryer sheet goop on them and the sensing board cannot read dampness and shuts down the dryer thinking the cloths are dry. So check that first. Your thermostat control has 4 wires. 2 of the smaller wires warm a small heater to change the rate of time the thermosdisc opens. Newer models have a thermister. Next to it is a thermal disc.e749f09.jpg It kills power to the gas assembly but does not kill the motor. If it is open then their won't be any heat. The next thing to check for continuity is the flame sensor.db76c0c.jpg It must have continuity. It powers up the ignitor.6c68f9d.jpg If either of these are open( no continuity) then you won't have no heat. When the control is cool it powers the gas assembly. The flame sensor and ignitor kick in. The solenoids cannot kick in because the ignitor is on. When the temp gets hot enough it bends a bi-metal inside the flame sensor and opens the circuit to the ignitor. With the flame sensor and ignitor out of the circuit the surge of power can now zap those solenoids, gas comes out hitting the ignitor, and whooosh you have flames. It only take a minute or 2 of flames to warm the dryer to 160f. Then the control shuts down the operation. So what can go wrong? If the limit is blown or the control is blown then no power can get to the gas assembly. If either the flame sensor or ignitor is bad you won't get heat finally if the heat works a little bit but no more, then replace those solenoids.83a012d.jpg They tend to fail when hot and work when cold.

When the dryer is cold the heater flame will

The heating circuit is working perfectly except for the solenoid coils as indicated by the occasional glowing of the igniter but no gas is ignited. A gas valve closes as the solenoid coil weakens as it gets hot and does not open until it has cooled down. Replace both gas valve solenoid coils to get the dryer back into proper operation. The solenoid coils are part numbers 694539 and 694540 but also can be purchased as a kit here.
