No need to jump the fuse just check it for coninuity if none replace it. It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, dryer coils, heat sensor,or igniter. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at t his will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

I have a 4500 John Deer tractor that typically won't start in cold temperatures (i.e. 39 or below) otherwise it starts promptly. I've pushed the key in to heat the glow plug a minute or more.

The 4500 John Deere tractor sounds like the glow plugs are not working. Checked voltage at the glow plugs to make sure that there is 12 DC volts.(Might have to remove main wire from the glow plugs to check!) If no voltage at glow plugs there maybe a bad fuse,relay or wire connection in the glow plug circuit. If there is 12 DC volts at the glow plugs, it is possible that the glow plugs need to be replaced.

if it gas and the bake isn't working correctly,first thing that usually goes is the ignitor,sometimes the ignitor will glow but won't lite the flame,it works on amps. a flat ignitor takes 3.2 amps to open the gas valve a round one os 2.5 the easiest way to check it is start the oven,if you can't see the ignitor glowing orange then remove the racks and the floor of the oven so you can see it,when the ignitor starts to glow it should ignite the flame within 40 seconds,if not change out the ignitor,if the ignitor doesn't glow then you need a meter to check it for continuity,disconnect the ignitor wires and check it with a meter,set it on say 20k ohms,touch the leeds to the ignitor wires,if it stays on 1 then the ignitor is bad,if you get any other reading other than 1 then it's good and you have a problem somewhere else but like i said most of the time it will be the ignitor.

My gas dryer isn't getting hot, I was told it was probably the ignitor, I took a continuity test and got a reading of 80 ohms on my glow plug, I don?t know what a normal reading is for a glow plug....

if the ignitor is lighting or glowing its fine,, what you need to check are the thermostats in the rear of the machine, look here for what they look like and ways to test them

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Oven won't light, but the stove top burners are fine. Don't smell any gas or any indication the oven is attempting to light....

next time send the brand name and model number so i can look up your machine,if it's a gas stove most likely it will be a bad ignitor,even if the ignitor glows it still could be bad,if the flame doesn't ignite and the ignitor is glowing change it out,if it isn't glowing pull out the ignitor and check it with a meter,common problem.

Kenmore gas dryeri have a kenmore gas dryer 3405587 will run norm but will not heat i replaced thermal fuse and ignitor last year. this year i jumped fuse and it seemed to work replaced fuse remounted and...

does the ignitor glow?if it doesn't check the sensor for continuity,if it is glowing then you could have bad gas coils or a bad gas valve,let me know if it's glowing and send the full model number,you shouldn't jump out any of the parts,just check them with a meter,if it's bad change it out,if the fuse was bad it most likely popped from a dirty dryer,you most likely have a blocked vent line or the duct is backed up where the lint filter slides into,you could have damaged something else by jumping out the fuse,let me know what you find

Gas dryer runs but no fame to heat it up

You have a bad thermo switch, unplug, open back of dryer, switches are quarter size round and two wires hooked to them, also on is thin and 2" long sually white with two wires ooked to it. Check these with a tester, just like you test a fuse, from one side to the other. When you find the bad one, jump from one side to the other, plug dryer in and see if it works, it will if switch is bad. Then replace bad one. Do not leave jumped, if dryer overheats it will not shut off and could cause a fire. Jumping is just for test only.

Dryer won heat timer dosen't avance

huntman, the model posted shows as a gas dryer. In the lower left side there is a square plastic peep hole. Take a putty knife and pull it off. Set the dryer to high heat and take a look in the hole. Does the ignitor glow? If it doesn't you either have a bad thermal fuse or a bad ignitor. Start with the thermal fuse. You will have to remove the back panel to get at it. I will attach a photo. You can ohm it out, or just jump the wires temp. to see if the ignitor glows. If theral fuse is good and the ignitor does glow, you probabley have a bad set of coils. These sit on the gas valve are easy to replace. The timer won't advance without the heat. Check this out back.
