My gas dryer keeps shutting down the heat cycle and I have changed the hot surface ignitor


The gas valve assembly consists of the ignitor, the flame sensor, and the solenoids.
In order for the gas valve assembly to operate, the ignitor must come on, the flame sensor must then shut the ignitor down in order for them solenoids to activates. Them selonoids won't activate untill the ignitor is glowing. Once the ignitor is glowing, it then acts as a thermocouple though the secondary winding on the primary solenoid. As long as you have igniton the ignitor keeps the power to them solenoids on. If fer some reason the gas did not ignite, then after the ignitor cools back down the gas would be shut down and that is your built in safety. So what goes wrong? With a bit of age them solenoids work a little then overheat and quit, making it a very difficult diagnosis. But now you know the secret right?
Swap out them lame solenoids and rock on!

Oven shuts off intermittently during baking.


Number 2 is the oven sensor. If it is shorted or open or out of spec (1100 ohms @ 75f) then it won't let the control operate right. If that is ok the ignitor /glowbar might be getting weak. When these get weak you can sometimes bump the valve and make it light. themobilian_2911.jpg

The Hi and Lo gas valve coils do they work in tandem ? Does the Lo stays on all the time ? Ruy ...


Their is 2 coil hosing but one of them has 3 wires and 2 coils inside it. The ignitor does 2 jobs, it lights the fire and acts as a thermocouple through the holding coil. If the flame does not ignite after the sensor detects the heat from it and shuts down then once the ignitor cools down the gas valve is shut down even if power is going to the gas valve. When the temp drops below 105f in the drum the control closes contacts inside allowing power to be supplied to the gas assembly. The ignitor and flame sensor along with the booster holding and secondary coils are all energized at once but the solenoids won't open the valve because the ignitor is hogging the power. The power supplied to it runs through the flame sensor. When the temp inside the sensor reaches a point the bi-metal inside tripped the power to the ignitor and the power gets diverted over to the secondary coil. Thr flame stays on till the temp inside the drum reaches 160f at which time the control thermostat opens circuit to the gas assembly and power is shut down. The drum continues to tumble and when the temp drops once agin below 105 the process is repeated and another blast of heat is shot into the dryer. So what goes wrong? Faulty flame sensor sticking/open, cracked ignitor, old coils that work intermittently or not at all when hot but work again when cooled.themobilian_2866.jpgthemobilian_2865.jpg themobilian_2868.jpgMore here.

Model: JDS8850AAS -- Oven won't preheat above 150


Hello,

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

Hope this helps

Hello,

The problem with your oven is that ignitor is weak and not drawing enough amprage to open the gas valve, the gas you smell was since the ignitor does come on it allowed the gas valve to open a wee bit but since ignitor is weak it wont allow gas valve to open fully. I know you going to doubt that what i'm telling you is correct, i base my diagnosis on my 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician.Replace ignitor and enjoy your baked meal

Oven won't heat but burners light #jgbp28eek3db


Most likely its your electric ignitor. Remove racks from your oven. Remove the bottom plate in stove and it gives you access to the ignitor. Turn the oven on and see if your ignitor glows. If not replace ignitor. If it does than check the amperage going from ignitor to to gas valve. If you have anymore questions Please feel free to comment me.

Dryer quit heating


Before ordering any expensive electrical parts a few checks need to be done with an ohm meter. You can get one anywhere electronics are sold. . How to use a meter. If you cannot get a reading on a component then that would be your problem. themobilian_2260.jpg
themobilian_2261.jpgthemobilian_2262.jpg
Any of these components open and you won't have no heat.
If you have a gas dryer the heat is produced by a blast of warm air generated from the gas valve assembly. The assembly consists of an ignitor, a flame sensor, and a pair of solenoid coils. Power is applied to all of these components at once. In order for them solenoids to operate resistance in the circuit must change. To do that the flame sensor must open and kill power to the ignitor. The ignitor is then a thermocouple supplying power to them solenoids and as long as it stays hot it will allow them coils to remain on. If for some reason the gas didn't ignite the ignitor would cool down and shut off the gas valve. That is your built in safety. So what can go wrong?

If the heats works a little then quits then the coils are getting hot and failing with age.

How do you relight the pilot on a kenmore 80 series gas dryer?


Their is no pilot light. The system uses a glowbarce9a48b.jpgOPERATION
The newer dryers use a silicone carbide ignitor for ignition. If the Fuse is ok482c508.jpg the gas assembly gets power from the control thermostatfa8083a.jpg. The flame sensor allows the ignitor to go cat go. The coils themselves10e9e78.jpg cannot open the gas because the ignitor is using a lot of power. When flame detectc5ddc7a.jpg gets warm enough then it shuts down the ignitor and power is redirected on the other side of the 3 prong coil. The ignitor is not finished. It now is hot enough to act as a path to the secondary coil which energizes and sends that raw gas to the 1800f screaming hot ignitor. Igniton occurs and keeps the ignitor hot. If ignition at this point were to fail the ignitor would cool down and shut off the power to the secondary coil. Clever ain't it? So what can go wrong? Worn out flame sensor takes longer to reset, ignitor open. Clogged vent012c9c0.jpg overheat fuse blown, bad thermostat, and faulty solenoids.If all is good it should continually shut on and off all during the cycle to regulate the heat
