Your video was extremely helpful on troubleshooting a gas dryer than turns but does not heat. Those are my symptoms on a Kenmore model 71202. I checked the 4 thermostats that mine has (or appears to have), and found these resistances: intake thermo # 1 (part CS-7) = open circuit intake thermo # 2 (part L205-40F?) = 0 ohm exhaust thermo (part ?) = 7 Kohm rear housing thermo (part?) = 100 ohm
I do not see any glow at the igniter when I start the dryer, so I'm guessing that a bad thermo is preventing it. If CS-7 is supposed to be 0 ohm when cold, then do you agree that it is the main cause? What about the other two with non-zero resistances? I checked all with at least one terminal wire unplugged. I pulled CS-7 totally out and remeasured, it still shows open circuit. I found part CS-7 on your website. How many days to deliver? Thanks for your help. JP
ANSWER Hello J.P.,
Sounds like you have found the issue. There should be no resistance there, not an open circuit. The delivery time depends on where you are and where the warehouse that has the part in stock where it will be shipped from is located. Parts usually will show up in 2 to 5 business days from the date of order.
