Need to no color of wires to cycling thermostat #ap053749 & back to heating element or wiring diagram of that area.
On the cycling thermostat, the side that has a single pole will get the black wire. The other side has 2 poles and they are marked 2 and 3. The one marked number 3, which is the bottom terminal, will have the orange wire and the other wire goes to the terminal marked 2.
I'm thinking I have a thermostat issue. The gas dryer fires up fine when tested (with front panel removed) but doesn't end up drying the clothes. The exhaust is clean. Thanks in advance.
Answer Hello Jake. Check and see if the flame lites, then goes out and never lites again. If so, it sounds like the coils may need to be replaced on the unit. Also, 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
