Dryer is not heating up it runs does the ignitor heat up before gas valve opens because the ignitor never heats up


On my gas appliances, either there is a pilot light or the ignitor sparks (like a car spark plug) or glows after the gas valve opens. The ignitor does not heat up.

I've had some gas appliances that have had the valve stick. (On an oven, we tested this by tapping on the valve when the unit should have called for gas. This confirmed that the valve was bad and not the thermostat.)

I hope this helps.

Not heating up Gas Dryer


Modern gas dryers do not have a pilot light. They have an electronic ignitor (glow or spark). A glow ignitor turns on several seconds before the gas turns on and should get orange hot. A spark ignitor should make a clicking or buzzing noise.

Most likely the ignitor is bad but you can check it fairly easily to make certain. The best instructions I have found are at

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/ignitor.php

If it is the ignitor it can be replaced with a few hand tools. Remove the bad ignitor. Write down the make, model, and serial # of your dryer. Call your local appliance parts store to see if they have one it stock before driving over there.

GE Spectra XL 44 Gas Oven Bottom Heating Element Faulty


First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. If the ignitor doesn't come on at all will need to see if you have power to the ignitor. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.
