Dryer will not heat up. Ignitor glows then stops but I dont hear any gas and I have no flame. Checked thermostat sensors and they have continuity. Is the problem with the coil valve? If it is, do I have to replace the whole valve coil assembly or can I just replace the Coils? Thanks
Answer Hello Michael,
You need to check the current draw on the ignitor. If the ignitor is only turning red, this is the issue. When the unit pulls 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current, the ignitor will turn almost white hot. This is enough current to open the gas valve. If the ignitor is turning white hot, the issue could be either the gas valves or the gas valve coils.
Igniter will not turn on but it looks fine. Would not getting gas cuse the igniter to not engage?
Answer Hello Greg. No, 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 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
