Why does our new frigidaire gas stove bggf3042kf make a high pitch whistle when the oven is heating?


Could be some blocked vents on the burner. Remove the burner and make sure all the gas vents are clean and clear.

Our dryer has no heat. The drum turns and we checked the vents. All clean. Also we checked the fuse. Is there a heating device? It's 5 years old. Thanks Cathy

Gas dry will not heat


Do this first
Remove all exhaust vent tubing and clean it out thoroughly.
Any lint build up will prevent the burner to operate
A moister sensor stops the burner when it senses lint build up
Reattach the vents now and proceed to the next steps below
If thoroughly cleaned & no build up is present start the dryer and listen for the spark ignitor to click. If it does not click the ignitor is bad. If it does click and no heat appears to come through the dryers drum within 30 seconds the moister sensor is at fault

The dryer does not heart


is it gas or electric?what's the model number?if you checked the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing and that's ok,check the heating element with a meter,if it's gas you have to read out the ignitor,the sensor and the gas coils with a meter,if it's gas and you have parcial heat change out the gas coils,did you check the thermal fuse part 3392519 or on some dryers it's a 3390719 with a meter,if you did you have to remove one of the wires to get a true reading on anything you're reading out,also unplug the dryer before you check these things,also when you clean out the dryer you gotta take off the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of the dryer,if the vent line is long,i use a leaf blower to clean out the line,remove the line from the dryer and the wall,stick the blower in the hole in the wall and blow the line out from the wall to the outside hood and make sure nothing is blocking the hood like a cage,some hoods come with a cage so animals can't crawl up the line,if you have this you gotta clean the cage every month,if you need more help send model number and if it's gas or electric

Burner not full force


Could be your gas pressure is too low. Also, there is a particular type of spider that likes to get into the gas line at the gas valve and spin a little web in there. I have often seen this as the cause of low gas pressure. If neither of these is the cause, I would suspect a faulty gas valve.

Drum turns, but no heat


Most likely a faulty thermocouple. The gas will get turned off if the themocouple does not sense the pilot light.
