DLG5966G will not get hot. Vents have been cleaned and replaced with newer shorter ones. The heating mechanism sensor has been wiped clean...what could be causing it not to heat?


check if the igniter is glowing at all upon startup. you will need to partially disassemble dryer to check. if the igniter doesnt glow, then check the safety t-stat on flame tube body. it has a reset button on it. beyond that, it could be a gas valve problem, igniter itself; circuit board, etc..etc.

Kenmore Gas Dryer ignites then stops heating after ten minutes.


If the glow bar comes back on and the gas does not light,replace the gas valve coils. If the ignitor does not come back on,replace the flame sensor.

My Kenmore 60 series gas dryer will not heat up. I checked the lint trap and it is clean. How do I open the front panel to check the pilot light?


Some dryers have a small inspection hole covered by a small platic cap.
Remove cap and look inside unit for pilot. Newer dryers have an igniter that glows when the dryer is turned on. It ignites the gas then goes out.

My kenmore model 70 wont heat. I replaced the coils, and gas sensor. the unit has been thoroughly cleaned. the igniter is heating up, the gas will light, then goes out a few seconds later. the unit is a...


Hi, Make sure the 4" vent is clean al the way outside. Make sure the vent hood in the wall is open. It sounds like the heat is short cycling do to poor air flow.
If the vent does not appear to be an issue, Watch the ignition while running and see if the ignitor glows later in the cycle and shuts down before the flame ignites. If this happens, you will need to change the coils on top of the gas valve. Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Oven burner doesnt light


Doubt that the glow plug is bad. Gas only needs about 1100 degree F. to ignite using the glow plug method. It really seems as if there may be no gas getting to the burner. If there is no flame, you should be able to smell gas. If there is no gas smell, then I would look for the obvious such as: is the gas turned on?, Does the gas valve on the unit have a safety that is tripped? and so on. A new gas valve may be in order but make sure that it is receiving the proper voltage when the glow plug is on. Lastly, there may be a safety that is malfunctioning. If the unit does not light within a given time, the safety will "Lock Out" the unit so the place doesn't fill up with gas.
Hope this helps and good luck.

My kenmore dryer does heat up all the time.


After the glow plug starts glowing a sensor detects this bright glow and turns on the gas which will be ignited by the glow plug and you have flames.

So, it could be this sensor or in the gas valve solenoids. You will need an OHM meter to check this.
