Gather your tools and follow directions listed.

First start the machine.
Infront there is a little sqaure plastic cover. pop it off and see if you see a glow. If not then grab a quater inch nut driver and take the big black cover off the back. Of course unplug the unit. There you will see a little skinny white fuse. Take one wire off and test continuity. If yes then go to the igniter and check voltage. If not then then the fuse is bad and needs replaced. You can not reset it. Further assistance I am by the phone 877-293-1739 - 574-232-8040 I have the part instock can ship tomarrow for around 13$

How to clean igniter on Mode N-0751M-DV


This is a Noritz Tankless.
That whoosh is excess gas being ignited behind the normal lead/lag time for G-Valve opening and igniter on. Might be the Igniter but you'll need a new igniter gasket as if you pull the igniter assembly and clean ONLY WITH A GREEN SCOTCHGUARD PAD, you'll shred the gasket and need a new one. NEVER sandpaper an igniter it is coated and sanding destroys it.
Also may be a flowmeter signal problem where flow is sensed but ignition signal is slow to igniter but on-time to gas valve opening resulting in excessive gas pocketing in HE before a clean ignition.
I'd say Tech Service Issue as this gas can pocket in the extreme enough to blow the unit off the wall with a late or slow ignition spark.

I have a Maytag LDG 4000 gas dryer with electronic ignition. The igniter glows, but does not ignite the gas. I can not smell any gas, so I'm assuming a valve of some sort, internal to the dryer, is not...


Igniter glows - No gas ignition. If the igniter heats
up but the main burner flame is not ignited, remove
power and using an ohmmeter, check the following:
• Open secondary coil
• Open holding coil
• Open wire harness
• Stuck flame sensor (Stuck closed)
Most likely bad gas valve coils.

Gas will not ignite


No heat 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. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Ignition


When you turn the gas valve to High or Ignite position..do you hear or smell gas going into the gas burner? If yes, then look at the position of the igniter in respect to the gas burner to see if it generates a spark either with or without gas running.. .. if you have gas entering the gas burner.. and if you've used the Grill a lot.. the jets may be clogged and need cleaned to allow gas flow thru them.. if the jets from the burner are clogged in or near the igniter..it may not ignite easily untill you get lots of propane in the area.. Check the gas jets to make sure you have gas coming out and then check the igniter to make sure it generates a spark.. Hope that helps..

Gas Range Oven not lighting


In many cases, even if the igniter is glowing, the resistance may not be low enough to turn on the gas valve. The igniter controls the gas valve. The gas valve could have failed but is extremely rare. The igniter has probably gone bad. ($50.00 to $90.00 for igniter). The igniter is in series with the gas valve. As the igniter heats up, the resistance decreases to a level where the valve will turn on the gas.
