Why does my dryer keep blowing the high limit thermostat
You will want to check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home to ensure that the vent is not restricted. Also check to make sure that the heater is not staying on which could be an indication that the cycling thermostat is faulty.
Hello again. Changing my 2008 whirlpool duet from lp to ng;I removed all lp parts; installed brass ng orifice, spring part # ap3081255, then white plastic regulator # ap3081254, how far down do I screw it 3 turns ? I screwed it down snug on spring then installed cap # ap3135346 , dryer runs great BUT! sounds like jet engine ? PS I dont have meter.....
Answer Len, There are no adjustments to make, or specific turns on the cap. As long as you've installed the Nat gas valve components(orifice,cap, spring, regulator) and you have 3.5 WCI gas pressure at the gas valve, you're set and done. You'll need to adjust the fuel air mixture at the air shutter on the burner tube( usually 1/2 to 3/4 open) you should be fine. You may need to have the gas company or a servicer out to test the pressure at the gas valve. Good Luck and Thanks
My dryer will light will have a flame for 6 minutes then it shuts off I'll start again it will light then stop.What part do I need to replace I was told the coil were still good.
Answer Hello Roger. Here are a couple of things that you might want to try. The easiest test to do for the condition you discribed is to remove and clear the exhaust vent. It may be restricted with excess lint which restricts the discharge of air. This condition will cause the dryers burner to shutoff do to overheating.
If the dryer will run normally with the vent removed, either clearing the vent tube and checking the flapper door on the vent hood should correct the problem. Another place to check is the fan blower cage. Make sure it is clear of lint and debris. If everything is clear then it sounds like the coils need to be replaced. The part number for the coil kit for your model is 279834. Hope this helps.
