Hi. When my dryer starts, the heat starts right after but in about 10 second heat stops. And will starts again after a minutes or 2 what can make that problem? Help please.
ANSWER Hi Thomas. There is a flame sensor to the left of the burner assy. It acts as a "cycling switch" that can be defective. Part # 338906. It normally ohms closed. Also check the gas valve coils as they may be weak. Part # 279834. Dryer Gas Coils:
Check the coils 279834 and see if they test good. You can test the coils using a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The two prong coil will read 1,000-1,300 ohms, and the three prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1&3. Thank You.
