Changed igniter (broken) still no heat could thermal fuse be problem? Checked all others on burner, seems ok
Answer Hello Bill. Test and see if your getting power to the igniter 279311. Also test the thermal fuses W10423382 and flame sensor 338906. They should read closed for continuity. Check the coils 279834 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. Hope this helps.

The burner was short cycling and determined the belt was off blower. The burner now burning 6 to 18 seconds, but still not drying clothes completly. What temperature should the exhaust be?
Answer Hello Barry,
You do have to take several high and low measurements, (at the exhaust), and average them together to get the average operating temperature at the exhaust. The average should read about 155°F when set to high heat, about 140°F on medium, and about 125°F on low heat setting. If your unit has an extra low setting it will average about 105°F. Be aware that if you are using a "bulb" type thermometer, it can read up to 30° higher.
My dryer suddenly stopped working. When I set the timer and push the button, all I get is a single click sound and then nothing. Where do I start?
Answer David, You're on target. With your description and complaint, the first check should be the 3390719 thermal fuse. The fuse is a "one shot" fuse located on the blower housing. If the temperature increases in the blower and the fuse circuit "opens" power to the motor is interrupted and the dryer will not start or run. You'll also want to check and make sure there are no clogs ,kinks, or restrictions in the dryer exhaust pipe and vent hood.
Dryer not heating.
Answer Hello Leo. The cycling thermostat should show resistance on the small terminals and closed on the large. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Does the dryer have a swtch on tensioner pulley? When belt is broken dryer doesn't works.
Yes when the belt breaks the unit does have a broken belt switch 279782 that does not allow the unit to operate.
The dryer runs but the heat doesn't come on.
Answer Hello Isai. 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 hot enough to light the gas. 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
