checked the thermister part number 8577274 with a multimeter on 200ohms and got an infinity reading. I assume the part is bad. Is that correct?
If you got a infinity reading on the thermistor then you will want to double check with the resistance set for a higher reading. Put on 20K and see if you get a reading and if still the same then the thermistor is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Hello, My question is, when I start the machine all is normal. But after a few seconds, the flame goes out. It turns the flame back on again, but for less time. After a few cycles the flame will not catch. What is affected ?
Answer Damian, Based on your post information, the most likely issue is a weak gas valve coil 279834. Since the gas valve ignition system cycles on and off for the first few cycles, the igniter and flames switch should be OK, The wiring inside the coils is weak and after a while the coils cannot lift the plunger and release and ignite the gas. Replace the coils and you should be fine.
Why dose my Dryer work on air only? When heat is it works of 5 minutes and then blows the braker.
Answer Hello Dave. First check and see if the breaker is weak and needs to be replaced. If not, it sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It sounds like it is over heating and is causing the issue if the breaker is good.
