My Maytag Gas Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise when the ignighter and flame come on


thats a good sign the valves that those coils you replaced sit on are getting bad and you will sooner or later need a brand new gas valve

Whirlpool Model LGN2000KQ0 ignighter glows, flame turns on for a few minutes then it goes out and the ignighter never glows again nor does the flame return


The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer

Dryer won't heat up. Replaced ignighter, still


I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow to the burner. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hotpoint gas oven 5yrs old pre heats fine but then doesn't keep temp up.


You have either a faulty oven thermostat, or your oven door seal is faulty. You can check the oven door seal by doing the following (you will need a A4 piece of paper):

Open the door put the paper against the seal, close the door. Now pull the paper slowly out, if there is resistance then the seal is fine.

-------------------------------------------------
The oven thermostat test is as follows (you will need a stopwatch):

Turn your oven on to the lowest setting,when it goes to high flame start timing it the oven should cut down within 8 minutes, if this doesn't occur your stat is faulty.

I hope this helps

Frigidaire propane dryer that heats but then shuts heat off


You have to troubleshoot the circuit components with a voltmeter to find out which part is failing. Most likely one of the sensors is failing and can easily be replaced. There is no way to know which part is failing without using a meter to test the parts while the circuit is operating

Got an older modle gas dryer running on propane, have a full tank starts up and runs for 1 to 3 cycles than dosen't fire. Ignighter works just dosen't fire up. Shut it down and wait a few minutes and works...


Are you any issues with any other appliances? (i.e. Water heater, range, oven , furnace) If you are having issues with your regulator(on the propane tank), then other items would be affected also.
If your ignitor is trying to ignite, then you are not getting gas to the burner.
  1. Replace the thermacouple.
  2. If this does not fix the problem, then you are looking at a bad gas valve.

Dryer Ignitor turns on then back off with no flames afterwards


the government mandated that gas appliances start using electronic ignighters because pilot lights would keep blowing gas even after they blew out now the way they work is calibrated on how much amps the glow bar draws the rest of the amps go to the safety valve to open it when the glow bar is drawing enough amps to be hot enough to ignite the gas now what this means is even though the glow bar glows it can still not be hot enough to ig night the gas so the safety valves don't get the right amps to the solenoids to open so you could have a weak ignighter or bad solenoids on the safety valves now i would lean toward the solenoids but i would buy both and first replace the solenoids then the ignighter if the solenoids work take the ignighter back
