Sometimes, there will be lapses in my replies back to your because of the volume of questions I am answering. But, please be assured that I will be giving you my best effort to help solve your problem.Give me a few minutes to check out the info you have provided.Thanks
The coils do work in series with the igniter coil and if you replaced the coils and had a different problem, and putting the old coils back in brought it back. You have a bad set of "new" coils. Buy a new set and see what happens. If you get a symptom of the igniter coming on and then just fading out before a flame is established, that would be a definite indicator that the coils are bad.
Try that out and let me know how it goes.
Also, just something else to check is the infra-red sensor on the side of the burner tube. If you have a meter, check for continuity between the 2 terminals with the machine shut off. If you get an open reading, the sensor is bad.
Same thing, I call it the IR sensor because it act off the heat of the flame.
I have to go offline for about an hour. I will reply back when I log back on if you come back.
Did you have any more questions?
Ok, sounds like we got the normal heat working and it looks like it will dry ok?
What is the time from the flame getting established to the time it shuts off on the two setting that are giving you the problem? Try timing with vent pipe on and the vent pipe off.
