Question about GE DBL333GB Gas Dryer

1 Answer

GE DBL333GB Gas Dryer burner comes on one time only

The burner only comes on first time . If the dryer has not been used and is at room temp, the burner will come on the first time, heat to about 110 deg, measured at the lint screen then go out. The igniter will continue to come on and I hear a solenoid click but the burner will not come on again. It appears that the only time the burner comes on is if the entire dryer has cooled down to room temp again.

Our GE gas dryer is burning clothes that are fleece fabric or blankets. Any suggestions?


I recently solved this problem on my ELECTRIC dryer by taking apart the lint collection area. Some dryers allow you to do this by removing a couple screws surrounding the lint screen holder. Others require some dis-assembly of the top and front panel.
Once you have access behind or below the lint screen, use your hands or a strong vacuum (shop-vac) to clean out any collected lint that has fallen below the collection screen and settled in the exhaust duct. I pulled out about 100 cubic inches (~1.6 liters) of collected lint, cat hair, and debris that was obstructing air flow.
Obstructed airflow can cause metal parts near the electric heating element to overheat and scorch clothing and is a serious fire hazard. I expect similar problems can occur with gas dryers.

LG GAS DRYER NOT LIGHTING THE SECOND TIME AFTER COLD START. IGNITOR COMES ON: SENSOR SEES IT IS HOT ENOUGH AND GAS VALVE OPENS. FLAME COMES ON THEN GOES OFF WHEN TEMP IS REACHED BUT WHEN DEMAND FOR THE...


If your vent is clear (strong flow of air at vent outlet outside) then you have a bad gas valve. I have seen this a few times on LG gas dryers. You really only need one of the coils on the gas valve, but they are not available individually. You have to get the entire valve.
