Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Remove the bottom panel and start the dryer,if the ignitor isn't glowing orange or red then you could have a bad thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,a bad ignitor or a bad sensor located on the left side of the ignitor and on the outside of the burner tube,you'll need a meter to check the parts out,unplug the dryer,you need to pull at least one wire off the part you're going to check,the part will give you a reading or no reading it's that simple,if you get a reading it's good,if it stays on 1 and nothing else it's bad.if the ignitor is glowing then you have bad gas coils,bad gas valve or the ignitor could still be bad but most of the time if it's glowing it's good.if the dryer hasn't been cleaned in a long time check the thermal fuse first,pull out the lint filter,then remove the duct that the filter slides into and you'll see the thermal fuse on the right hand side of the blower wheel,it will be a 3392519 or a 3390719,these are the common fuses,if that's good read out the other parts,also if the fuse is bad you need to clean out the lint filter duct,vac out the bottom part of the dryer,then remove the vent line and blow it out if it's long,i use a leaf blower and it cleans the line out,go outside first and make sure the vent is clear so when you blow out the line nothing is blocking the lint from blowing outside,i've seen bird nests blow out of the line.clean it out once a year so you don't have a fire,the fuse won't blow again and your clothes will dry on time,let me know how you make out
