I put my drier all back together and will run it until it quits; that way I will be able to find the problem. I am just ahead of myself. I think now that it is the element burning out and it will eventually burn right out; then I'll replace it.

Thanks.

When several burners are lit i smell fumes that after a few minutes actually begins burn my eyes. What should i do?


Switch it off and call a gas technician. That may be Carbon Monoxide also known as 'The Silent Kille**r'. It could also be an indication of not enough air being burnt with the gas.

Won't heat


There could be a number of different reasons for your drier not to be heating. You could start off with making sure your getting 240v to your drier. Then you could check the lint trap outside your house to make sure its not clogged. If all is good you will now have to take apart the drier and with a ohm meter check several parts. Heating element, burnt wire, limit switches, and a few others depending on the model. If your familiar with troubleshooting you can find a schematic on your drier and go from there. If not I would recommend you having a technician to come and check it.

There is a stile heater around the door opening and sounds like it shorted out. This would be the smell you noticed. The plastic door trim should have felt exceptionally warm to the touch

When the heater is on, it begins to smell like ammonia. It did not do this last year


If you have run the a/c during the summer particles of dust and debris stick to the electic coils and once they are activated the smell is the debris that has accumulated on the heater coils. Run the unit for a few minutes and the smell should subside.

Good Luck

My kenmore dryer will run then stop after a few minutes


this sounds like it is overheating all driers have a thermatic switch that will kill the drier if it over heats, probably wouldnt hurt to call out a repairman from sears on this one.

Goodman Heat/Air unit Model # A49-20 Serial # 9909502720


It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?
