Dryer still will not heat up- New Igniter heats up but does not glow, smokes a lot after a few minutes so I shut it all down (same with the original). The gas does not come on during this time. I took a chance and ordered this part because the flame sensor continuity tested closed. .Prior to the failure, the dryer over a year took longer and longer-"clicking?"- to ignite- going from a few seconds to lately about 30-45sec in the weeks before it failed.
if it matters this is an LP conversion. has worked fine for over 15 years.
this is the new ignitor I got from you.: thanks for your help

ANSWER David, You most likely have an issue in the wiing to the gas valve or a weak set of gas valve coils 5303931775, The glow bar igniter 5303937186 "smoking" could indicate a loose connection or low voltage to it. You'll need to be careful, but you may want to check for 120 VAC at the connector while the igniter should be glowing or smoking and trace the voltage back to the valve coils and harness to the valve.
