one of the fourm member need help with dryer issue


It seems to me that MickeyP is barking up the wrong tree. I am not saying that the thermostat is not the problem just that it would be the last thing I would check. Also the thermostat with the four wires is one of the ones that would cause this problem along with the one with two wires.

J. V. Put a parts breakdown to an electric dryer, does he know the thread is about a gas dryer?

Being that it is GE you will have a hard time finding a wiring diagram.

The first thing he needs to do is check for continuity across the igniter because it is the most likely thing to cause this. I don’t know the exact ohms reading but if it is not open it is more than likely ok. But of course if it is open he needs to replace it.

The next thing I would do is run the dryer with the drum out to view the gas valve. To do this he will have to keep the wires to the door switch intact. Also this model may have a belt tension switch, which will have to be pressed for the dryer to start.

What should happen is the igniter should glow red for a few seconds and then cut off and the flame should ignite.

If the igniter doesn’t glow then I would check the thermostats.

If the igniter does glow but doesn’t cut out after sometime (I don’t know the exact time 30 seconds maybe) I would replace the flame sensor (heat detector as some people call it).

If the igniter glows and cuts off more than likely the coils on the gas valve are bad.

If he is uncomfortable running the dryer with the drum out he can check the coils with an ohmmeter but it is unreliable because sometimes they check ok ohms wise but still don’t work. Again I don’t know the exact ohms right off. But he can’t check the flame sensor.

Hope this helps!!

All of this and more is on this page
