Gas Dryer not heating---am I doing this right?
Model Number: LGR7646EQ0 Brand:
More than 10 years
OK I think I am doing this right but I am not an electrician or an appliance guy. I went through other posts on here and got out my Ohm meter and here are my numbers with wires unplugged when measuring.
Coil with two terminals: 1201 Ohms
Coil with three terminals: Left and Middle prongs are 1351 Ohms, Outer prongs are 561 Ohms, right and middle prongs are 1910 Ohms.
Thermal Fuse: Open on meter
Cycling Thermostat: Beeps
Ignitor: 780 Ohms
Flame Sensor: Beeps
Now I understand that the Thermal fuse should not be open so I believe this is the culprit. After reading "Gene's" information he gave on other topics I think I am on the right track but before I order up parts my questions are:
1) Am I reading this all right and
2) Would it be necessary to replace say the ignitor just for grins since the unit is over 10 years old.
I guess ultimately I don't know if my Ohm numbers are "good" numbers or understand how this thermal fuse thingy can make the whole heating assembly not work. I just want some assurance I am on the right track from someone out there that knows.
