Question about Frigidaire GLGR341AS Gas Dryer

1 Answer

How do I get to the ignitor in this model? There is no obvious opening - which I believe should be on the front (the back opening doesn't lead to the ignitor).

You need to remove the top cover by using a putty knife to slip between the top and front cover and release the clips,then there are 2 screws that hold the front cover inside the front cover,then remove the drum belt and the drum and there will be the burner tube and ignitor

WGD5100VQ1 not heating


Coils? The model leads me to believe this is a gas dryer. Make sure you have good connections at the flame sensor. Also check the thermal overload, if it reads open it won't heat.

Model 11076832500 runs fine no heat


pop off the cap down on the left side corner of the front panel,start it and look inside,is the ignitor glowing or not?also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and the vent line?all the thernostats are in the back of the dryer and inside where the drum is you have gas coils on top of the gas valve,the sensor and the ignitor,if the ignitor isn't glowing unplug the dryer,pull out the dryer,pull out the lint filter and remove the two phillips screws in front of the filter,now go in the back,remove the vent line and the back panel,you'll need a meter to check some parts,you'll see the metal duct that the filter slides into on the left side,next to it to the right and down low you'll see a white plastic part,this is the thermal fuse,pull at least one wire off of any part you're checking,read out the fuse checking for continuity,you can set the meter on 20k ohms,touch the leads together and you should get a reading,now touch the leads to the thermal fuse,if it stays on the 1 and it doesn't move the part is bad,if you get any other reading other than the 1 the part is good,if the thermal fuse is good check the two t-stats on the heater box to the right and the t-stat next to the thermal fuse,and while you have the back off pull off the metal duct and clean it out,you should do this once a year with a gas dryer,there are 4 screws holding the duct on and the two you removed off of the top panel,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,make sure the outside hood is clear before you blow it,if there's a cage or screen on the hood remove it.if the thermal fuse is bad and you don't clean out the dryer it will pop again until you clear out the blockage.if all the parts are good in the back,put it back together except for the two screws on top,get a screw driver and pop the top panel up,there are two clips one on each side that hold the top panel down,stick the screw driver or putty knife in between the front and top panel and pop it up,disconnect the door switch and you'll find two 5 1/6 inch screws one on each side around 3or 4 inches down on the inside,remove them and then pull up on the front panel one side at a time,read out the ignitor and one of the parts you checked should be the part that's bad,vac out the inside of the cbinet and if you have a shop vac set it up to blow and blow all the lint out of the motor,if the ignitor is glowing but no flame,bad gas coils,sensor or gas valve,the valve doesn't usually go,if the flame lites and then after a while no heat you have bad gas coils,just check the parts with your meter and you'll find the bad part,if you need any more help let me know

Bake does not work


most likely you have a bad ignitor,this is the first thing that goes,if it glows and doesn't ignite the flame within 40 seconds after it starts to glow the ignitor is still bad even though it glows orange.if it's a flat ignitor it takes 3.2 amps for the ignitor to open the gas valve and ignite the flame,if it's a round ignitor it takes 2.5 amps to fire it up.you don't have to shut the gas down,if it's a fairly new machine no electricity will go to the ignitor either if it's shut off but you can shut the breaker down if you want.the machines are not like the older machines where you lite it with a match,they are electronic ignition so check the ignitor first,if it doesn't glow at all you can check the ignitor for continuity with a meter.if you need any more help send the full model number off of the machine,open the bottom draw under the oven door,look on the frame,left or right side and you'll see a tag with the model number on it.good luck and happy new year.

Oven doesn't light. The element glows, but the


Hello Randolph,

Since the ignitor glows it eliminates all other possibilites and the ignitor is weak and not drawing enough amprage(3.3 to 3.6) to open the gas valve, i know you going to have a hard time believing that since it does come on, but i base my diagnosis on my 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

Dryer is running, but not hot. Is there a pilot light?


The dryer uses a hot surface ignitor to light the gas. It's common for these to go bad, and fairly easy to replace (although it means taking the whole front off of this model, if I remember correctly). A new ignitor is around $40, available online and any well-stocked appliance parts store.

There are other possible causes for the gas not to come on, but the ignitor is most likely. It can be checked with an ohmmeter if there are no obvious breaks. This site has good pictures of how to take the machine apart if you want to try repairing this yourself. (It's the procedure for changing a belt, but the steps are the same for removing the front. Your model doesn't have a separate kick panel that comes off, I believe. If I'm wrong then the job is easier since you can reach the ignitor that way.)

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

Ignitor won't spark


Look at the front ignitors that work and look at how they ground. Then, set the back ones up the same way. Make sure the 'arc gap' is the same too.

Oven not lighting on Amana model agds902ss


Helloemauldin Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

When you turn the thermostat on your range on it sends 120 volts to the bake valve and ignitor. The bake valve and ignitor are wired in series and the ignitor draws all the current and heats up. As the ignitor heats its resistance changes and when it is cherry red the current switches to the gas valve and it opens. The amp draw on the ignitor needs to be 3.2-3.6 amps for the gas valve to open. The gas valve has gas to it at all times. The gas valve should open within 40 seconds after the ignitor starts to glow.
If the ignitor is glowing red and the gas valve doesn’t open the ignitor is usually the problem. Sometimes the ignitor will glow red but the resistance doesn’t change and the gas valve doesn’t draw the current.

This is not a do it your selfer!

Maytag Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE won't heat


Probably a high limit fuse. Check on the burner shroud for a 2 wire thermos. They should have little resistance. If so replace. If they are open, check for a restricted vent. Remove front panel and clean out area below filter.
