Why isn't the heat staying on during length of cycle? It will start out hot, but at some point will cool down. When we try to start again, the glow bar will light up but then the flame doesn't ignite.
ANSWER Hi. Big T. You really will benefit from a couple of checks.... The first one is the entire vent system. Make sure it is not clogged or kinked which backs up the heat and over heats the thermostats shutting the fire down. Make sure the outside vent hood and the cap opens and closes without the lint keeping the cap open. This allows the night dew and rain to come back in and create the same issue. Once all this is clear, you will be able to see if the igniter ohms out between 50-800 ohms cold. The 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. They will ohm correctly when cold but will break down under a heat command. If this is not it then let us know so we can help further.
