My Gas Estate dryer quit heating up all of a sudden. It worked perfect prior to that. Dryed cloths fast and good. On the last load during a rainstorm it did not give out hot air anymore. Is there another part other than the ignitor that can cause this?
ANSWER Hello Doug. Yes, You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
