My Amana DLG330RAW igniter glows orange and a flame is produced initally when starting the dryer but after the flame goes out when the igniter glows orange again (shorter glow time) a flame never occurs...


could have bad gas coils? part 279834 they're located on the top of the gas valve unplug dryer,remove the two pillips screws,lift up the cover and change out the coils,watch out on the three prong coil there's a spacer that you want to stay on the post so when you slide the new coil on the coil it's tight,if the spacer isn't on the post after you remove the old coil look in the old coil and stick anything that will fit and push out the spacer then slide it back on post then install your new coils.also while you're in there get a shop vac and vac up all the lint you see,remove the lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides down into and clean that,then set the vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and vac that up,make sure you blow the motor off and the gas tube and parts,you should do this at least once a year with gas so you don't have a fire,then go outside and make sure the duct is clear no cages or anything on it,go back inside and remove the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run you can stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.if you need anymore help let me know.

No gas flow to oven, glow bar ignites no flame no smell of gas. safety gas safety valve was replaced


With the glow bar going and no gas smell that means you have a good circuit from control to valve and glow bar. For that glow bar to work it must change in resistance. If it is weak it won't change enough resistance to make the gas valve bi-metal open. Also the gas safety valve does not come preset and usually is bottomed out all the way for propane. You must adjust the orifice to aprox the same height as the old one to get the propah gas output for natural gas.

if your old valve did not leak and has continuity between the terminals it is fine. The ignitor/glowbar is weak. If it is dim orange that is usually a way to tell. Bumping the stove makes the bi-metal come on also is a sign of a weak glowbar

Furnace starts up blower starts..nothing ignites...then shuts down. repeats and doesnt stop...sanded igniter stick and nothing happend. flashes red once.


Do you see the actual ignitor glow? You must be saying that you sanded the sensor. The ignitor, after the little inducer fan comes on will begin to glow a bright orange until the burner lights. If the ignitor is broken, you will NOT see a glow, and you may smell a faint smell of gas.

No heat checked all vents and gas lines. don't know whats next?


A gas dryer uses a electric igniter that glows orange to light the gas burner. If the igniter does not glow orange when the dryer is started..replace it.

Heater is on firing up- everything seems ok but there is nogas-goes thru the cycle with igniter glow orange but does not ignite- there doesnt seem to have any gas present to ignite weathermaker 8000


the igniter has to have proper omhos to open gas valve.
recommend replacing igniter. be careful not to touch new igniter with bare hands. oils in the skin of your hands will cause the igniter to get too hot and burn out quick

Gas dryer does not stay hot.


Hello. I can help you. Here are all of the possible problems
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
