My dryer ignites and the flame is there for a couple seconds then goes out. I already replaced the Flame sensor. What else would cause this to happen?

Trevor for Model Number Amana LGA30AW gass dryer

ANSWER Hello Trevor. It could be the 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. Test the coils after running the dryer for about 10 minutes. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
