I am going now to put a thermometor at the exhaust port and see what readings I am getting.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
at initial start up of Maytag gas dryer mod.ldg7334aae,the ignitor lights the temperature at exhaust go to 150degrees and cycles off. After this all that happens is the gas valve makes a little noise the glo-coil lights but fire does not light. I pulled the wire off of the censor at the flame tube while glow-coil is red but the cycle just shuts down. I pulled the wires off of the two wire thermostat on the flame tube and I have continuity when cold.
