Hi all, I'm glad i found this forum perhaps you guys can help me out, my dryer was not drying (no hot air) I replaced the whole ingniter assembly, the main coil also the dual coil and the flame detector. Once I reassembled it I ran it for 30 min. no hot air, i gave it a rest, ran it again this time it heated up for about
40 min, stopped it for awhile now it's running cold again... what gives? could it be a thermostat? all and any help is appreciated.
Thanks, Screamin Eagle

Does the igniter go on & off?

Does the igniter glow at all?

Gene M,

You did not answer these questions.

Which parts exactly did you replace? Post the reference numbers from the diagrams.

Gene, here's the new parts list: (installed)
230- thermostat
407- thermostat
717- igniter assm.
552- heat detector
729- dual coil
731- main coil
Somehow I passed it over in the beginning but this morning I ordered the
"safety" thermostat a.k.a. thermal fuse. Gene thanks for lending a "helping hand" I've been out of work for over a year and a half and taken on "fix it" jobs I normally wouldn't do, so this site and people like you are a big help.
Happy Holiday,
Gene M .... Screamin Eagle

Gene M,

Sorry to hear it. Unfortunately you are not alone in that boat.

I'm afraid you spend much more money than needed buying unneeded parts. You had to start with investing some small money in a simple ohmmeter and performing a few continuity tests in order to diagnose the problem.

A bad thermal fuse is the most common cause for non heating gas dryers. Did it fix your dryer?

Happy New Year with a good New work!

Gene.
