Unhappy GE gas dryer won't stay on
Model Number: DBVH512GF0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When set to any heat setting, motor starts, glow igniter comes on, gas comes on, but after less than a minute, the dryer shuts off (and display timer goes to zero). Tracing the voltage through I see that the Heater Relay is coming on initially, thus starting the gas, but then shuts off and disconnects power to the gas valves; after that the whole dryer shuts off.

Is the problem the Power Board? or perhaps could it be one of two Thermistors that are plugged into the Power Board? Is there anyway to test them before just buying new ones, like a resistance vs temperature chart or something?

Please note: This problem has actually changed since I started working on the dryer. Initially, only the gas would shutoff after a minute, but the motor would keep running and THEN the burner would repeatedly cycle through the sequence of re-lighting and then shutting-off again.
So, I replaced the two gas valve coils. Now, the problem has gotten worse . . . . as described above.
Please help. I hoping it's not the main Power Board, I bet that's expensive.

Thank you

Bear

RE: GE Gas Dryer, model# DBVH512GF0WW, gas valves won't stay on.

I forgot to mention that, besides just replacing the two gas valve coils, I also confirmed the new coils are working by jumpering voltage past the Heater Relay (that's on the Power Board), and jumping a nuetral wire from the incoming plug to the coils' nuetral terminal . . . and the gas stayed on. So, I know the gas valves do work, if told to stay on.

It seems the problem is the Power Board, or some sensor telling the Power Board that somethings wrong. That's why I was thinking it could be one of the two Thermistors. They both measure 130K ohms at room temperature, and the resistance increases when they are heated.

I see the Power Board is $150, and would buy it that's what bad, but just want to be sure first.

Any ideas to confirm that it's the Power Board?

Thank you

Bear
