Question about Dryers

Open Question

On the Cissell Dryer CHD75 when you cut the appliance on, the igniter sparks "the fame is on" but time as the igniter cycle is finished (approx. 10 sec.) the gas stops flowing to burners and the flame goes out. Sometimes when the temp knob is turned back and forth the same thing occurs and the flame goes back out.

SOURCE: my kenmore gas dryer ignites and the flame shuts off after 10 sec

The valve on the pilot may need to be replaced. The springs get worn and wont stay up. Otherwise you could replace the entire pilot unit with a kit.

SOURCE: the gas dryer is not getting hot enough to dry

In light of everything you checked, it sounds like you have a bad set of coils on the gas valve. When they go bad, it can take a long time between cycles. Hope this helps!

Fisher & Paykel IWL 16 shuts off during all cycles.


I says power cut restarting in 10 seconds
I'm sorry, it is the board, the switch mode power supply is dying.
Every time it starts to do something it power cuts.
Best to get a new motor controller board,
Quote the 6 digit part number under the bar code to get the right part.

Have a cissell 170lb dryer it will ignite than flame will go out


Most likely problem with ignitor. You can try cleaning the ignitor. One reason I can think of is that the feedback from the ignitor circuit is not working. What usually happen is that when the flame have started. The ignitor will generate a small current to tell the ignitor control board that there is a presence of flame. If the small current feedback is not detected. the system will automatically shut off the gas for safety reason. You probably tried stopping and restarting and the same condition will occur.

Not heating up


If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link will give you some advice on how to troubleshoot a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heat

If this is a GAS dryer, the most common failure for heat related problems in a gas dryer is a weak or blown igniter on the burner assembly. The way the ignition system is supposed to work is like this:

1. Select the dryer cycle and press start.
2. The drum begins to spin and the igniter begins to glow.
3. Once the igniter reaches a certain current potential, the gas safety valve opens.
4. Gas is introduced into the manifold and you have ignition.

NOTE: It can take roughly 30 – 90 seconds from the time you start the dryer to the time it takes for the gas to ignite.

NOTE: This is a designed safety feature of the appliance that prevents free flowing gas from accumulating in your home without ignition. That’s why you typically don’t hear any gas flowing when you have an igniter problem. You might think you have a gas problem when actually you have an ignition problem.

TWO BASIC IGNITER TYPES:

Carborundum (Cylindrical in shape) – needs to produce 2.5 to 3.0 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
Norton (Rectangular in shape) – needs to produce 3.2 to 3.7 amps for the gas safety valve to work.

NOTE: There is a UNIVERSAL FLAT BAR igniter on the market as well, that can be used as a substitute if the igniter type that came with your range is not available.

The igniter typically goes bad in one of two ways, the igniter either stops glowing completely, or becomes weak over time and doesn’t produce enough current to open the gas safety valve (in this case the igniter will still glow but the dryer still won’t light). Longer ignition times can be another symptom of an igniter possibly going bad.

You can purchase a replacement at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also offer some excellent exploded view diagrams of the appliance.

If your replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match your appliance, you will be instructed to cut the old plug off and splice the wires together using ceramic wire lugs included in the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. For future reference, always include a brand name and model number when posting questions. This makes it much easier to diagnose the problem. I hope this helps you.

Cissell Dryer Model HD30ST gives an error code P-F. I would like to know what this means.


I had the same problem with our Cissell L125URDG with the error code P-F. Found out it means Plug #4 on our wiring shematic. On this plug there are several sensors connected to this plug: highlimit switch, air switch, thermistor, door switch, and a bonnet thermostat. So, it is probably one these switches that is given this error code P-F.
