Question about Frigidaire GLGR331A Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer will not heat

This gas dryer is a Frigidaire Gallery about eight years old. It was working just fine until I decided to clean the lint screen and the outlet to the outside. I used a vacuum cleaner and an air compressor to remove excess lint. I was successful with my cleaning but I think I may have blown the pilot light (if there is one) out. As a consequence - I cannot get the dryer to ignite. I didn't take it apart and left the gas and electric hooked up. I know I have power and I know the gas line is not kinked and producing gas except I don't smell any coming in. And I know I have ac because all the mechanical partswork. jr

My guess is you probably got some lint on the ignitor and cause a burnout or a limit to trip. If you don't hear the clicking associated with the ignitor heating up and the flame sensor kicking it off then I would check to see if maybe a limit was tripped. On gas dryers when the limit trips the dryer will operate but simply will not heat up. I have a full page with service manual included HERE

Dryer is a Fridgidaire Home Gallery...and the dryer tumbles, and heats in beginning of cycle but the heat will not continue to heat...tumbles normally. The vents have recently been cleaned.


if it's gas you have bad gas coils,if not blow out the vent line with a leaf blower if it's long from the back of dryer to the outside vent,also make sure the outside vent isn't blocked,then remove the lint filter and then remove the duct that it slides into and clean that out,let me know what you find,this came in under a frigerator,ha kinda messed me up

I've got a fridgedaire gallery gas dryer, approx 8 years old. Takes too long to dry clothes. I've cleaned inside as best I could and the dryer duct. Is seems to get hot some of the time, but not constant


if you use fabric softener. i recommend you slow it down...alot. an appliance guys nightmare is just that. inside fabric softener, is wax. your lint screen may look clean. but run it under hot water. ive come across many a lint screen where the water will simply not go through the screen, even though it appears to be sparkly clean.

Frigidaire Gas Dryer not heating up. Other elements are all ok.


It sounds like your igniter is no good. At all costs, check the Fuse before anything else. It is usually accessed from the back of the unit.

My Gallery series dryer shuts off.


Check your lint screen. If you do not get a complete "lint pattern" you probably have a clogged or partially clogged vent which will cause your dryer to overheat and prematurely shut off. Clean your vent and you'll return to normal operation. If you have a vertical vent (goes up through the roof) get a proffessional to clean it. Dryer vent issues are the #1 cause of house fires according to the U.S Department of Consumer Affairs. Over 16,000 per year.
