Sometimes, if the sensor has sense that it is already hot inside the clothes compartment, it would shut off the flame and then after a while it will turn it back on...observe it longer and watch if it will turn back on after a while...then it is just a normal thing...

i hope i was able to help

tnx..drcool

Flame turns off rematurely


That is normal. The gas does not stay on constantly. That would burn the clothes. The gas assembly is controlled by a Klixon mounted on the blower housing. As the air comes through the blower The Klixon also known as the cycling thermostat judges air temp and turns the gas assembly on and off. Here is a video explanation:

I have a neptune mdg5500aww dryer, goes on, glowing igniter... but does not turn on the gas... what is wrong


Hello,

Their are 2 possible things wrong;

1) Does the igniter just stay on or does it glow and go off usually within 1 minute?..if the igniter just stays on and never goes off the FLAME SENSOR will be the problem
here is what the flame sensor looks like oldtech2332_86.jpg
2) if the igniter does glow then go off but no flame..the coils that open the gas valve are bad
here is what they look like oldtech2332_87.jpg

The part numbers are;

FALME SENSOR 338906

GAS VALVE COILS 279834

The parts could be ordered from your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
partselect.com

Dryer flame starts for a few min then goes out


When it goes off will it restart immediately or do you need to allow some cool down time?

If cool down time is needed it's likely the coil kit which is part number 279834 for your model.

Other possibilities are air flow too slow causing a "lazy" flame which shuts off due to hitting safety thermostat sitting on top of the flame tunnel.
