Default Frigidaire Gas Dryer Tumbling but not drying
Model Number: GLGR642ASO   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My gas dryer is tumbling but not generating any heat. Already read some similar posts and performed some troubleshooting. Began by checking to ensure lint trap and vents were not obstructed. They were not obstructed but I cleaned all lint. Then I checked the Ignitor flame sensor with the ohmmeter. Not very experienced with this diagnostic but here are the readings I got with my digital multimeter:

Igniter = 65 Ohms
Flame sensor = 0.3 Ohms

Based on what I came across on the How to Check Continuity with Ohmmeter post, these look to be good. Can someone confirm my findings? Are there any other parts that I can check/rule out? I noticed other posts mentioned that the igniter glowed - - is there a way I can check this? Thanks in advance for any help.

You might find a small plastic piece on the left bottom of the dryer front. Pull this off and see if the igniter is glowing. If so and the gas never ignites, you probably have a bad igniter, AP3674313.

I ran the dryer with the top open and saw that after a few minutes of running the dryer the igniter lit up for a few seconds, no more than five and then I heard a click and it went out. I observed the dryer for a few minutes and saw this happen 2 or three times. Any ideas what may be the cause?

I usually monitor the current, if under 3 amp=new igniter time, part # above.

Thanks for the info. but after reading several other posts, I decided I'd try to change the coils. Was at the part store when you posted your last reply but I replaced both coils and it seems to be working. Thanks for all direct and indirect posts.

Thanks for the feedback, the click was due to the faulty gas coil.
