Exclamation Flame not igniting after 5 minutes
Model Number: 110.73102101   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I've got a gas dryer which I can't figure out why the flame starts but then stops and does not ignite again. I have vaccumed out everything. I have verified continuity to all the parts i.e. thermal fuse, thermostat, etc.
I ran a test run w/o the hose, I noticed that when I first start the dryer, the ignitor glows and I automatically get a flame for about 5 min. After that, it goes out for about 5 minutes. Then I see a glow (probably from the ignitor) for about 30 seconds and I hear a "click" and the ignitor stops glowing and I get no flame. It will continue doing this for the rest of the cycle... Glow..."click sound"...no glow/no flame. Glow..."click sound"...
no glow/no flame!
Anyone know why the flame does not come on again even when
I see the ignitor glow!?
Any help is appreciated.

The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor
flame sensor
mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor
Ignitor
and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly. So...
If your gas dryer has a good flame sensor and a good igniter AND the dryer will work some and quit, replace these:
Gas operator coils
part# 279834

Replacing them is easy. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver. Make sure the quick connects are tight. And do not touch
the ignitor when doing this operation:

The coils get hot and quit on these machines when they get a little age on them. It is aggrevating because it is a hard to diagnose thing. But well worth the 20 bucks.

I've changed the coils and... VOILLA!! It works. Thanks a bunch to everyone who posted a thread. Most importantly I've learned a lot about my dryer and will never again have to call a repair man.
