My gas dryer has no heat, what could be the cause and will I be able to make the repair myself. I am quite handy with large knowledge of several tools.
Answer Hello. You will need to check and make sure the igniter is getting hot enough. Also test the thermal fuses and flame sensor and make sure they read closed for continuity. You will also need to 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.

Dryer is dead. Even the inside light will not come on.
Answer Check at the outlet and make sure there is 240 volts there. Also, test at the terminal block on the unit. If it is good there, then check the thermal fuse 3392519 and all the wiring inside the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
