HI. Last week I bought the solenoid and Therm fix kit from you. Installed parts cleaned vents. You can "HEAR" the unit attempt to cycle but the ignitor does not come on until several (audible) attempts. Sometimes if you move the heat selector back and forth between auto, fluff, low high it will cycle and the burner lights. Burner stays on about 1 minute or so when it does light. Also the dryer sporatically seems to function correctly. (I also cleaned off the window on the flame sensor but did not replace). Thanks for the help

Joe for Model Number DC20F5WW

ANSWER Hello Joe. If the unit lights, but then will not relite and goes out after a few seconds, the coils 279834 may be bad and needs to be replaced. Also, make sure the flame sensor 338906 is working properly in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
