Remove the connecting exhaust vent for a test only.
Run a dryer cycle with the vent removed.
If it works,repair your vent blockage.
If the same occurs,check the blower wheel on the end of the motor to make sure it is not spinning loosely on the shaft.
Next observe the glowbar ignitor.
Is it coming on and cycling after every extenguish?
If it comes on and does not light,replace the gas valve coils.

What causes my stove top to randomly beat approx 8 times in a row every 2 minutes for sometimes up to several hours, sometimes a few minutes, sometimes quite all day?


If you mean 'randomly HEAT', then I would suspect the control panel. There would be logic to detect the control touch and convert that into a signal to the controlling system that applies power. If the touch panel is faulty, it may signal for power intermittently.

My maytag W10199645 dishwasher won't start


Maytag model w10199645 was starting intermittently, and sometimes only when we pressed and held the start button for 10-15 seconds. Finally tonight it just wouldn't start, period. I unplugged it for 15 minutes, then used the Heated Dry/Normal/Heated Dry/Normal and it started back up on its own.

My flame keeps going out. i can press the reset button and some times it will work for a week sometimes only 30 seconds. It is an intermittent igniter. The flame seems to "roll back" when it...


Your GMS unit should not be intermittent ignition but direct electronic ignition. In any case the flame should never roll out of the chamber. There can be a few reasons for the roll out but sometimes a good cleaning of the heat exchanger and a combustion analysis can cure that. The intermittent flame issue is probably a dirty flame sensor and can be cleaned with light sand paper or steel wool. Be careful not to touch the igniter only the flame sensor. It is usually on the opposite side of the burners from the ignition source. Hope this helps :)

Intermittent convergence (IC?) problem


Can be bad solder connections on IC pins, but intermittent
conditions can damage IC's, so we usually replace because
the labor to get the board out is the same ..........Three to five
years on a pair of convergence IC's is normal.........T.
