Had heating element go out , then thermal fuse twice , thermostat checks for continuity , but could it still be bad ? or what else might it be ?
With having the heating element and 2 thermal fuses go out, you will want to check the venting on the unit to make sure that the vent is clear and not restricted. A restricted vent can cause this issue to occur. The Hi limit thermostat would normally have continuity and if the it does not open when the unit gets to a certain heat temp then it would be bad and need to be replaced.
My gas dryer runs, but the heater will not turn on all the time. I've checked for lint blockage and it's all clear. Bad thermostat?
Answer Hello Shawn,
The first suspect is the ignitor 33002789. The only accurate way to test it is with a clamp on ampmeter. Clamp it onto one wire going to the ignitor and look for 3.2 to 3.6 amps. If it's low, replace the ignitor. If it shows in the correct range, you need to replace the coils on the gas valve 279834 or the gas valve 35001190.
