If it were to stay on their would be a fire. A gas dryer continually adds a little heat at a time. That is why the solenoid coils get weak with use. They are hard to diagnose. They are cheap enough. $20 Replacing them is easy.ignition but heat  dont stay on - 75a300a.jpg

When the thermostat calls for heat sometimes the gas pack works fine and sometimes it doesnt work at all . the inducer motor comes on but the burners dont ignite . what could be the problem ?

Could be the igniter or the thermocouple. The blower has to start first and it does but it will run on endlessly without further action unless the igniter heats the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the burner.

Should electric fuel pump stay on with key on, tank empty

If its a fuel injection then the pump often will only power up the fuel rail untill you start cranking. you dont want to run the pump without fuel as this will overheat the pump and kill it.

Replaced igniter, dryer worked great for 3 days, now igniter still works but the flame only stays on for 3 to 4 seconds not raelly heating up the dryer

it can be the high limit thermostat,the flame sensor eye on the burner tube,or the cycling thermostat on the blower housing you can try bypassing the thermostats to see if they are weak,but dont leave them bypassed as they control heat output and will cause over heating if left bypassed

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


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

Eletric fan stays on after ignition is shut off

If this is running for a few minutes after shut down, this is normal. If it continues to run long after that there is an issue with the CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) circuit or its controlling relay.

Cdm1250 ignition on wire radio stays on

I dont understand your question, but ignition wire wich is conected at pin 10 in the accesory connector must be conected to the ignition, fuse is recomended for security reasons but you can use a 1 amp fuse, this line is just a sense to get the radio on or off folowing the ignition

Pilot will stay on but burners will not ignite, checked all switches seem to be working allright, still no burner ignition

Possibly a flow switch not closed, or a limit switch open. May even be the pilot generator not producing enough mili-volts to operate the gas valve. Safest way is to have it serviced by a heating contractor. You dont have to call a pool company unless you wish.

Power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition

Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.
