The timer serves to convey current via the gas valve?
ANSWER Hi. Yes but..Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. You need to measure the 120 vac to the ignitor part # 5303937186 first to see if the timer and the wires to the are ok. Then ohm the cold to see if it has between 50-400 ohms cold and it does not have a crack in the middle (opened). Dryer Gas Coils: Check the coils 5303931775 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. Beside the ignitor is a Flame sensor part # 5303281135 that has to be closed(0-ohms cold). It acts as a cycling thermostat to regulate the temperature. Make sure the door switch is shut, part # 5303281044. Does the unit run? The timer is no longer available. Thank You
