Question about Frigidaire FGR211AS Gas Dryer
We have a Frigidaire FGR211AS1 gas dryer. 2 years ago we had the holding and boosting and secondary heating coils replaced. It worked great until now. As of 2 days ago the dryer will only heat up a little bit. I checked the fuse and the radiant sensor and they have continuity. The glow coil gets red when the dryer is on. It just doesn't get enough heat. It gets some heat -- just not enough (like it used to). The exhaust is clear -- I don't know what else it could be. Any suggestions out there?
These dryer's have a moister sensor installed into them. The will work great when the exhaust vents are clogged up with lint and keep the heat in check. Since you claim you already checked and seen the venting tubes are clear the moister sensor is not working so the the heat will not get very hot at all. Replace the sensor to get this unit back in working order

Tips for a great answer:
Hello stephaniadel - The gas igniter has to reach a certain intensity before the gas valve will come on. There are two coils that mount to the top of the gas valve which opens and closes the valve. If these coils have failed, the valve will not open, even if the igniter is operating properly. If I was in your position, I would personally recommend connecting with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
